We say no more dogs after the current three saints, but the reality of it is we'll probably compromise and downsize. I've always like corgi's.

And then I wonder what I will do with the 1 remaining outside fella.....Gray. Most like I will trap him and bring him in.

Las weekend we adopted a 14 year old cat that was dumped at the shelter after his human died. He was miserable, wouldn't eat and was being 'mean'. I picked him, he purred and everyone knew he had a home. Rescue is in my blood. And yes, all the cats and the bird come with us when we are in the motorhome.
I hope you count to 9 before opening your slides

And, this is very respectable.

As an active member of a non-profit dog rescue, we see too many pets that are neglected and unloved, simply because their owners didn't care.

It's not just a pet. It's a life.

good job

reminds of the one time I helped someone search for their lost dog. he went missing from early in the morning and was found in the evening inside the couch. In the morning when they folded their couch back up the little guy jumped in. He didn't make a peep all day.

We will always have pets. thats why we have the motorhome.

We've talked about this too. After what will likely be 30+ years of owning and caring for pups, when all is said and done, once our 2 pups pass (hopefully not for a long time!) I am strongly leaning toward "we're done."

Every time we travel, whether by plane, a quick road trip, or extended RV trip, there is so much more to plan for because of these two. Is that planning and expense worth it? Overarchingly - of course. But if I'm very honest, I look forward to the day we can just pick up and go without worrying about doggy day care, in-home sitters, barking in the campground, limits on where we can take them and walk them, etc.

Until that day comes, we will love them and give them the very best that we can in all respects. I feel like that needs to be said....

This is such a personal decision. It depends on the temperment of the animals as much as the temperment of the animals' owners.

We've had two or three dogs most of the thirty five years we've been together. We had decided that we were getting too old and when we lost the two that we had we wouldn't get any more.
Shortly after Christmas our eleven year old silky started bleeding from the spleen and had to be put down.
We didn't make it a week before we were searching for a puppy. There's an 11 week old yorkie asleep on my wife's lap right now.
Were weak.

We lost ou wonderful Katie thr we months ago. We are 78 and 79. It was horrible losing her and we both said we could not go th rough that againWe both agreed to not get another dog. We have been married 57 years and have always had a dog. Two weeks later Pat came out of the bedroom with tears in her eyes and said 的 just have to have a dog. I was thrilled to death. We love our new little cocker Daisy.

I just had to put down our beloved Irwin, a 17 year old beagle rescue, last week. We had him since he was a 6 month old. He was our second Beagle. The first, Bailey, lived to 13. At this point I don't know if we will get another dog. We are both in our mid 60's. My wife's health is very poor and her prognosis isn't great. I have heart issues but I am figuring out how to live with them. I don't think it would be fair to the animal to get another dog that may outlive us.

I have considered adopting an older dog but the cost of care for an older dog can be great. I am also considering becoming a foster home for rescue dogs. I just don't know if I will become too attached. What I do know is that right now is not the time to make the decision so I will wait until it is.
