How old will you be/were you when you decided not to get any more dogs (or cats)? [View all]

One of our pups is sick - not ready to go yet, but he's got congestive heart failure - and this prompted a discussion about our "next" dog whenever that comes. We have a six-year-old shelter dog who really loves the company of her brother and I think she'll be lonely without him, again, whenever the time comes.

My husband is on board with another one one day, but then asked, "At what point will we have one dog, and then none? How long do you want to have dogs in our lives?"

Then he kinda pissed me off by mentioning that when I go away, he's left to watch them. FFS, it's a few weekends a year. When I visit my dad or daughters or best friends, if I can take them, I do.

Anyway, I'd love to hear your stories. As for me, I'd like to have a dog or two as long as I possibly can. They're great company and I just love them.
