Would It Be Wise To Get A Puppy When I Have An 8-Year-Old Dog?
I have an older 8-year-old Mini Aussie and I'm thinking about getting a puppy. My older dog does not care for other dogs sniffing her or jumping on her.
Do you think this would be wise? Would it be better to just leave her an only dog? My husband and I are both retired and have been her whole life. We do also have 5 parrots, which she looks at and loves them to feed her, which is why she is fat! LOL
I was hoping another dog would help her lose weight and maybe make her life a little more interesting. She loves going for her 2-mile walk every day and to the park on the weekend, but a little fetch in the house.
