Well I did it I got another dog.

I wrote a few weeks ago about having to put my dog to sleep and I didnt know if I wanted to get another. But Chewy was getting very lonely. He would go outside and turn around to see if Jr was coming out and when I shut the door I would look out and he would just lay down and stare at the door. It was making me even more depressed. Well I broke down and took in a rat terrier. She is the cutest little thing and the best thing I could have done for Chewy. He is more spunkier and he loves it when she comes outside with him. They play together. Sleep in the same cage together. It was like she was meant to be with him. I am so much happier now as well because she comes up and lays her head under my chin like Jr used to and it is so good. Thank you all for your kind and understanding responses. Did you have to get another dog to help the one left behind cope with the absence of their friend?
