What to do?

Tonight, Mommy and I changed my blog. It is just me now making comments. I miss having someone to tell me what to do. Mommy has been thinking about a baby brother. I wondered, is it to soon. When my big sister Sylvie died, I came to help Mommy and Mack not be so sad. Mommy likes these breeds Dandies, Corgis, Eskies, and Welshies. Do y'all have any advice on when Mommy and I should look. Mommy found some reputable good breeders, and she said when Andy comes;we, Mommy, Andy, and I will go to Petsmart and donate whatever the adoption cost is for a very young puppy.
Mommy and I miss Bubba very much, and it feels really different without him.

  1. Why don't you look on Petfinder or some of the other rescues in your areas -

    THAT would be a great way to honour Mack's memory -

  2. I told Mum we should send you Dottie - she's a cardigan corgi and I know you would love her as much as I dislike her. Mum said she was not packing a 15 year old corgi off to parts unknown and she'd send me before anyone else. Sheesh, I thought it would be great to ship Dots off to you.

    Mum says corgis are the bees knees. We do shed quite a bit but we are incredibly loyal, we adore our owners, and we love to snuggle. Highly intelligent and able to guilt you into giving us treats 24/7. We can be prone to eye issues but most of those have been bred out.

    Remember - adopting from a rescue means you are saving a life. We three are all rescues - two corgis and a cocker spaniel. There is someone out there for you two!

  3. Dear Sally and Mommy:

    I'm a Rescue..I think we make good pets. At least I do my best. I came from WFT rescue in the DeeSee area, but there are several regional rescues, one for Lakies, one for Airey Dogs, one for Newfies...even one for Corgis, at least in CA. where Miss Carol lives.

    We think you and your mom should think about taking a rescue dog..but you must do what is best for you guys, and you will know when it is time.

  8. Sally Ann, our mom says you should get another doggie right away...like TODAY! She says nothing heals your heart faster! (At least it always works for HER...maybe because it gives you something to focus on besides your loss.)

  9. Wooos! Some advice from Mom the dog trainer... It can be difficult getting a rescue unless you are willing to work hard at some rehabilitation. Try to find a puppy (you can in rescue too!)especially with another dog, it will be easier to adjust. A male will work better than another female in the household. There are a lot of puppymill rescues with puppies as well as older dogs. If you bring Sally along to see how she gets along with the other dogs, that can help, we did that with Kira and Scampi because the first dog we picked out really hated other dogs. If you go the breeder route be sure and check references and try to see the parents.Good luck.

  10. So sorry you and your mom are sad! It's hard to know how soon to start looking for a baby brother, but I'm sure your mom will do a good job deciding about the timing and where to find a puppy. Even though I didn't come from a shelter, I now think those are good choices!

  11. When the time is right, you'll know. I don't think any time is too early or too late. When my beloved chihuahua passed away at age 13, I adopted Shingo 2 weeks later. He didn't replace my other dog, but he gave me somewhere to send all that extra love in my heart to. He gave me direction. It was a good decision. Don't beat yourselves up either way. If you feel it's time, then it's time.

  13. Hey Sally,
    You & your Mommi will know when it's the right time to look for a dog. Mama loves the Dandes, and the welshies of course. Mama would stick with another terrier. You want the new pup or dog to fit with your personality. We tried & tried to rescue a terrier, but most turned us down because we have CATS! Can you believe that? So we opted for a puppy. You just need to evaluate your situation. Sometimes a puppy is best, sometimes you can find the right rescue dog. Just take your time & the right answer will come along. Mack will help guide you.

  14. I lost a dear dog before 2 years. Mine to cry stopped only, when drew in already 2 weeks of late Mischka here. It was not too early. Not for me. The memory of a marvelous dog remain.

  15. We have to add our vote for giving a rescue pup a forever home as well. As for Eskies, Eskie Rescuers United (ERU) and Heart Bandits are the two best rescuers...and both list their dogs on Petfinder.com which is a site designed to find forever homes for all breeds and ages of shelter/rescue animals. Also Prinnie's moms (of Prinnie's Yaps) volunteer with ERU and could help you with the process and transport etc. We agree with Khyra that there would ne better way to honor Mack. We know you and mommy feel very lonely, Sally Ann, feel us all encircling you with our paws and hands as we send comfort and consolation.

  16. Dear Sally Ann, Our friend John,in Wales, has 2 Welshies and 2 Scotties and they all get along great. He has a few photos of his Welshies,Meg and William, on his sidebar...just adorable. We don't want you to be lonely for too long. Let us know what you do.

  19. We just heard about Mack. We are so incredibly sorry- if you need anything - someone to listen or to talk to you can email us ok? We are so sorry.

    We also think that you and your mom will KNOW when it's time to look. Its different for everyone- so only you can know. We've seen people wait a day, a week, a year, 2 years... it just depends.

    Our hearts are with you.

  24. I just read about Mack. I am so very sorry. I also think you should try the rescue places first, but you must do what you think best. I don't think there is such a thing as too early or too late to adopt another pet.

  33. Hi Sally Ann,
    A new Eskie brother is lots of fun especially if you are the big sister because you get to teach him all of the rules and how things work. In return he adores you and follows you around and respects your wisdom. Sometimes brothers can be a little bothersome because they are boys and want to roughhouse or be really silly but it is kind of funny to watch. I am still getting used to having a brother and mine came to live with us as a grownup but he still looks up to me and helps me and understands when I need space. You are a very smart and loving girl, Sally Ann, and Mack taught YOU well so I have no doubt that you will make the most perfectly wonderful big sister and help a little Eskie boy fit exactly right into your family. I am so happy that your hearts are so big and generous that you have love to spare and share. By the way, did you see our tribute to Mack and you and Mommy (our May 18th post)?

  34. HI Sally Ann and mommy,

    I saw you guys on the DWB news and just wanted to drop by and give my condolences. Your brother Mack lived a long, well loved life, and he is not in pain anymore. I can tell both you and your mom loved Mack very much... so I feel so bad for you guy.. I'm sure Mack will be watching over you two to make sure you're happy, and when the time is right, he will do his choosing in who you bring into the house!!

    Take care gurrrls!

    Love nibbles,
    Miss Sunshade

  35. Hi Sally Ann,

    I'm thinking about the same question. Is it too soon to get a new dog? A friend told me that it depends on what your motivations are. Personally, I think its never too soon to open up your heart to care for another. I hope you and your Mommy find the perfect sibling.

  37. We agree that a rescue pup might be the answer. Angel Mack might direct you to the right one -- we think that's what our angel doggies do for us.

    You'll know if it's too soon or not. Your heart will tell you!!!

    Wirey love,

  38. Hey Sally Ann-

    Where to start... We've been SUCH bad bloggers lately, just now coming over to thank you for our GABE pressie... Now we feel ten times worse, reading about Mack. So sad, we hope a new pup will help heal your hearts. So brave of you to let him go, though - now he can romp & play with all the other doggies across the Rainbow bridge!

  39. Dear Sally Ann and Mummy

    We were so very sorry to read the news about Mack.

    We agree with our pals who have previously commented before us, a little rescue brother or sister for you when the time feels right.

    Big hugs to you both from the UK.

  40. Oh Sally...I am a darling little (my words, not Mumsie's) grizzle Lakie...my breeder said he hadn't seen a "good" black and tan Lakie in a very long time whatever that means (am assuming a very dark saddled Lakie?)..I'm a lot darker when I get stripped regularly...she stripped me lots this winter and my back is more black this spring than it's been in a long time.
    Mumsie glanced at our newspaper this morning and there was an ad for two all black Lakie boy pups...she has never ever seen those for sale around here...no idea if the breeder is reputable or anything....let us know if you'd want us to make inquiries?

    Kisses to you and Mommy...we're sending vibes to help ya make your decision!!

    Love, Laciegirlie

    ****************************************

    Dear Sally Ann,

    Scruffy and I are willing to give you Lacie...fact is we'd pay ya to take her...her fur products and makeup alone take up all the room in the bathroom....

    HAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAAAAAA...we'll be shipping her today!!
