    Hi Newbie Here
    This is the first time I have posted; until recently I had 2 Yorkies Girls Penny aged 10 and Tara aged 8, tragically we lost Tara 2 Months ago with Kydney Disease (God Bless Her) The 2 Dogs had been best friends for 7 years Penny misses Tara terribly and still looks for her every day, My dilemma is would it be advisable to home another Yorkie ie a puppy at this stage, bearing in mind how old penny is, looking for some advice.
    Kind Regards

    hello and welocme to the forum,,im sorry to hear you have lost Tara,, it must be upsetting for you as well as your other dog,, as for taking on another dog, well thats a hard question,, if you got a puppy would it annoy your older girl,,,,what about rehoming an older dog,????? what is Penny like with other dogs,???? you wouldnt want to rehome another dog and it upset her any more than she is allready upset, only you know what she is like , would she be happy to share her home with another dog,???? i wish you luck in whatever you decide, and keep us posted to,,

    hi i also think the best way to get throu this is get another,we know it will never replace her but you will be giving another dog the love it needs and love you back for and take your mind off things a little at a time

    Hi and welcome! Sorry to hear of you loss. :)

    I would be very careful that your older dog is happy to accept a new dog. Just from the fact you are asking the question suggests you are unsure so if possible I would have another dog come to your house for a short time, overnight if possible to test the waters and then make a decision based on your dogs reaction! :)
