Old Dog Gone Vs. Get New Dog?

My pet dog was part of my life for 14 years. Everyone says that's a long time but I wish I could
have had him for another 14. We had to put him down on March 20th and are still in shock and
feeling the space he has left behind in our home.

I do pet public relations for a living and sometimes it's almost harder when my personal life and
work cross, which is what is happening now. I am unsure how long to wait before we get another dog---I
don't want to feel the guilt of "replacing" Minster---I just want to feel excited about greeting someone
entirely different and new. How long do these feelings last?

In the meantime, the good news is my job working with The Pet Loo folks means I have
a great thing in my home awaiting a puppy to help with housebreaking and for quick away
times from the new baby. www.thepetloo.com. It's kind of cool to know that when the time comes,
I'll have a whole training regimen to work on, I just don't know when I'll be ready for that day!
Anyway, thanks for listening to my experience and if you need a cool product to help with your
cats, dogs or pocket pets in your family like rabbits or guinea pigs, give The Pet Loo a look--I appreciate it.
