Is my Sheltie lonely?
Me, B and C
Sadly my seven year old Sheltie boy died this past summer after a long struggle with CRF. I miss him and I think my ten year old Sheltie girl misses him too. She never used to like to socialize with other dogs on her walks and now she is friendly to quite a few dogs she meets.
She is possessive of me and I don't want to acquire another dog if that would make her sad or jealous or diminish her quality of life. But maybe she might like a friend, either a puppy or an adult Sheltie?
I work at home, so she is not alone.
Any advice would be most appreciated.
