RE: Pets and Bricks

I guess it's something that all pet owners think about.  At what age
should I forego taking in another pet knowing that my time probably will
be limited and not wanting to leave a 'member of the family' homeless?
Tough decision since that might very well be the time I most need the
comfort, company and love of a devoted animal.

Most of our friends are stretched thin with fosters or adoptees. We do
have something set up with one of my egg customers who does animal
rescue, but she's very pressed for space, too. And the older we get, it
seems the older our friends are, too, and less likely to be able to cope

I used to feel comfortable knowing that my folks would take care of our
guys, and vice versa. Now, Mom's dead and Dad's 91. Not likely. And my
sister-in-law doesn't even want to think about mixing her cats and our
dogs. :-(

Ah, well, we're trying to limit to no more than 2 at a time now, just in
case - but you know that we both have "sucker" stamped across our
foreheads. That's how we got Webster. He was an adult dog and in such
bad shape that the folks at the vets office knew he couldn't be put out
for regular adoption, so they called us. We had him for 16 years. I
wouldn't have missed him for anything either, though he was such a
Houdini dog that he was hard to keep safe. And he kicked hard when he
was sleeping!
