I know, there's just so few people left at all, let alone people who give any kind of shit about lawn.

I give some kind of shit about lawn. I will explain in detail about the sort of shit.

seriously, who?

I really miss animal companionship. It's been 9 months since my dog died. Is it too soon to get a new pet? How does grieving work? I feel a big pit of emptiness these days and can't stand to be at home for too long at a time.

My friend lost her beloved dog this year too, and just recently she decided to be a foster carer for dogs who need a bit of house training before they're ready for adoption. The first foster care dog she received, she can't let go of. So now she's adopting him and can't be a foster carer any more because this dog she's adopting is too nervous around other dogs

So my advice is, be wary of foster caring for dogs

they get in your head with their sad eyes and loyalty and then you can't let go of them

very bad

everyone is different. i don't think 9 months is too soon.

not looking forward to losing my girl but i hopefully have a while. i've never had a pet on my own before until her (got in 2013). she's 9 and a cat, so she should have like 4-10 years still it's a shame they don't live longer but there's nothing wrong with opening your heart to another pet. i still have my cat sheba's ashes, she died in 2007

If you want a pet and are able to care for one, I don't see why not.

What kind of pet do you want? You strike me as a dog person, but maybe that's my own preference shining through! I don't think I have any additional emotional or financial resources left for a dog, but when it's quiet at night I definitely wish I did.

I hope she lives many years longer as well. Who knows, you might get a whole other decade with her! People's minds are always blown when they learn that Kenny almost made it to his 17th birthday.

And yeah. Ashes. Those are forever. Can't even imagine anything that would cause me to part with them. I'll know my life was well lived when I'm 80 and have an overcrowded mantle full of them.

Definitely a dog. I like cats, but I don't like the litter box or the clawed up furniture (or the cat pee).

Your logic regarding wanting to care for an animal is exactly where my head is at these days. I have love and care to give, so why not? I just worry about replacing my friend psychologically.

I guess I look at it as adding and not replacing. Your relationship with a new pet will never be the same as the old one. They're individuals with different quirks, needs, habits, etc... But I really have no idea what I'm talking about. I don't think it does any kind of disservice to the deceased pet to hold a place in your heart/mind with other pets.

No, that makes sense. Thanks. Your insight is always appreciated.

I would encourage you to get another pet if you are yearning for company. Like Reprise said, obviously a new pet will never "replace" an old one. The relationship you will have will be completely different. But pets are healing and there are so many that need homes, I would say go get that dog my friend. You will enrich each other's lives.

this is a pretty good idea if you get your kids to like turtles, too. do all types of turtles live this long, though?
