Calm I know how you feel a bit. The first dog we got we adopted(I wasn't even born yet) and I grew up with him(He was 3ish when I was born) and when he was 15 years old he died... It hurts losing an animal you attach to and grow up with... or love like you did. That was 3 years ago and still makes me sad when I think about how wonderful a dog he was... and what he put up with. And now the dog that he grew up with is in the stages he was in in his last few years... is is really heartbreaking.

Yep it is hard its been 4 years and I would love to have another shephard but I just can't do it still I am afraid I would constantly be comparing the new one to him and that would not be fair.

Ya my Dad after a little while got a puppy and he is constantly comparing the two...the old one always wins and always will but not to say the dog we got is good(Well not really he is really dumb and very bad...and that isn't good when you are talking a 90lb dog that is all muscle)... I love all animals and it is hard for me when one passes...

Man I wish I could build stuff out of wood but saws scare me ever since my dad cut his thumb off on his table saw when I was about 12 years old.

Hun right before 9/11 my Snoopy passed at age 10 due to heart failure. When hubby & I got married he always wanted to get me a dog cause he knows how much I love them and I kept telling him I'd divorce him if he did and that Snoopy was SO SMART no other dog could ever compete.
Then in 2005 my friends cat passed so we went to the local shelter in CO to get her a new kitty....as I waited on her I walked around and somehow winded up in the dog section, that's where Maxx found me, the worlds sweetest cuddle bug who was fully ball obsessed and I brought him home w/out even asking my hubby
I never compared them 2, even thou that was always my greatest fear that I would compare any other dog with Snoopy.
6 weeks ago this Sun Maxx had to go over the rainbow because he was very very sick and I had to let him go, he was only 7 yrs and it about killed me, I still cry to this day.
A long magical story (I'll spare you this one) lead me to now have a Border Collie almost 6 months old in my house and he's such a sweetheart.

These are the 3 love's of my life and I never, despite my fears, compared one to the other and each of them are very awesome in their own ways. I fully understand your fears, been there & done that more then once, but trust me hun its not going to be like this and a new dog will bring a LOT laughter and joy to your home and your heart

I have Charlie hes in the pet section and I love him alot and would do anything for him he was my side kick when I was a truck driver we put in alot of miles in that big rig together and he is my best friend and side kick now. He is spwcial in his own way I know one day I will get another shephard because I love the breed just not yet and probably not a black one. Heres a picture of him his ears never did stand all the way up I know his mom was full blooded german shephard but the dad could have either been another shephard or a doberman they were all owned by the same people that owned his mom:

I used to do jigsaw puzzles before I got my dog. She'd jump all over them and scatter the pieces so it wasn't an option any more, but I've got a computer game you can do jigsaws on the computer. You can also make a jigsaw from any of your own pictures you've got on your computer. Eureka Multimedia
