I'm not realistically getting another dog anytime soon though so I fail to see the issue in pondering future dogs. We ALL tend to talk about our future dogs or thoughts on future dogs on here and somehow it seems that whenever I bring up a "possible" future dog someone always makes a comment about it which is a big part of why I'm not as active on this forum as I used to be. It's not like I'm euthanizing Bamm tonight and then running out to get a dog tomorrow. Hell even if it comes down to me having to make any decisions regarding Bamm I still will NOT be running out to get another dog anytime soon. I really don't see the harm in pondering dogs down the road.
