I had a Golden Retriver for 9 years and spent 23 hours a day with her for the 9 years so when she died that almost did me in. I'm 62 with no family or friends and a dog is all I know. For me to survive I feel I need to get another dog. It's been one and a half months since she passed away and I know it's still to soon. I would like a 50 pound dog who is attach to the owner. I have a bad back and can't walk a long ways but I have an electric scooter I can take a dog for dog walks and they can walk at their own pase. I'll have an apartment for a couple of months then a house. I'm thinking about a border collie or English Shepard.
