I have a 12 year old. He is deaf, but otherwise in excellent shape. He is great with other dogs and used to going to my in laws where there are both small and large dogs.
I would really like to get a puppy. I'd love for him to have a pal and I think it would make puppy rearing a little easier to have an established, well behaved dog for the puppy to follow.
The dilemma...My H thinks our dog is too old and spoiled for a puppy. He thinks current dog would be sad if he had to share my attention. IL's seem to think the same. I disagree.
Anyone have any advice or personal experiences?
