    I have a friend who will get a puppy immediately after losing one, she does it every time, even knowing she has 3 other Cocker Spaniels at home. She will always have 4 dogs....It helps her get over the loss, but she will still miss them like crazy.

    Terri on the other hand will make me wait. She will go years between dogs. I know if anything happens to one of ours right now, I would need to wait.

    It is a very personal decision and no right or wrong answer.

    Always with me

    My baby a Boston mix died at age 6 from a Very aggressive Leukemia. 2 months after she passed Aldo and Katara cane home. Just as @2BullyMama I still grieve for her and miss her everyday but I am glad I have my bulldogs. I am not betraying her by loving other dogs. She smiles at us from doggy heaven. I just know it!! I say get the puppy!

    Eagerly and Nervously awaiting the homecoming of Bruno Cannoli

    I don't know that I can give any good advice as I am going through something similar with our loss of Aubrey; however, we knew we'd want another bully eventually. They are going to honor her warranty even though it is not certain that it was congenital, so we should be getting a puppy in the next week or so. I am completely back and forth with my emotions. Like you, the house is so empty without her and I still get upset thinking about her. Heck, I cried when I watered her garden and saw her stepping stone yesterday. On the other hand, I want something to help fill the void. A new puppy would never take her place, just like a new puppy wouldn't take Lola's place in your heart. I know that I will at first compare everything about it with Aubrey, but I want to give it the long, healthy life Aubrey didn't get to have, you know?

    Getting a new pup is not going to solve your grief, but it may help you remember the happy times with Lola. Nothing can bring our girls back, but we can honor them by wanting another bully because we loved them so much, honor them by giving a bully the life we wanted for them. Honestly, I know that at times it will make it harder having another puppy around, but we can't close our hearts off from another bully baby that deserves the great love we have to give. If anything, this is a lesson to never take them for granted and love them with all we have no matter how much it hurts when they leave us, whether too soon or after a good, long life.

    Well said "Audreysmom"! A person or pet can never be replaced in ones lives, but our hearts are big enough to love more than we ever thought. I believe that everything happens for reasons we cannot understand or explain, especially at the time we are experiencing the event. Sometimes we can look back and see reasoning and sometimes we never fully understand but must just accept it as meant to be. The new bully that is coming into your life my need you more than you know or vice versa. Open your heart and accept it as "meant to be" You will see that you can love the new pup and still love Lola, too! Although your heart aches, I truly do believe "it is better to have loved and lost, than to never have loved at all"
