Not at all! I waited 2 years after we lost Baby- and it helped me heal once I finally did get another. The only drawback is that right now you miss Dozer so much, you may be in comparison mode. If you feel another could ever be as special as Dozer, you should wait. But I know you are around dogs all the time, so make sure you won't have that feeling that you could never love your new pup as much as him, because it won't be fair to your new dog. I would suggest getting a female maybe so it would be easier not to compare the two. Hugs!!
