    Finally Ready......

    Advertisements
    My German Shepherd had to be put to sleep this past August. I got him when I was 14 years old, picked him out when he was literally a day old, took him home 8 weeks later, and had him for 7 1/2 years. He had to be put to sleep before I was expecting because of spinal arthritis and he was starting to have too hard of a time getting up and around. I don't believe in letting animals go out in pain, so we had to have him euthanized. Unfortunately, I was already in Germany waiting on housing and he was staying with my mom for the time being, so she had to physically take him in......fast forward 8 months...

    DH and I had a long talk today. He's away right now at a school and will be home pretty soon. Anyhow, I asked him today if he was ready for another dog. I was amazingly surprised to hear him say that yes, he had been holding off because he wasn't sure if I was ready or not. I was so shocked, but oh so happy!!!

    I think I am just as excited about this as some people are when they start TTC or are purchasing their first home!!!

    eek!!!

    He asked me if I wanted another Shepherd, but I really don't think I want a Shepherd again. Jared was just too damn good of a dog to replace, and I am pretty sure that I would have a harder time with having another shepherd than anything else.

    Anyhow, so here is where I ask all of you to be excited and happy for me as if I'm TTC because DH and I are going to get another dog!!!!

    I can't make up my mind. I keep going between a Yellow Lab, and a Boxer.

    Oh yes, I'm beyond ready to have another dog. I think that a huge part of me is missing without a dog. This is the longest I've ever gone my entire life without a dog, and I'm going nuts.

    Yeah, I'm leaning towards a lab. Boxers are great, but DH wants a lab more than a boxer.

    DH mentioned getting a Golden Retriever, but I don't want the long hair.
