Yes another dog is best. It really helps ease pain. I'm so sorry for your loss. I would absolutely die if I lost Sweetie and I'm sure you feel the same way. Just know that she loved you back.

I've found tiny toy poodles and regular toys, but I'm waiting to show my grandma. I live with my grandparents and Sissy was grandmas best friends.

I literally cannot even THINK about losing my Daisy. Just the thought makes me cry... I have no way of easing your pain, I just wish to give my condolences. I agree, another dog to take your mind off of it would be good. My friend lost her cat who she had since birth and he was her best friend- she went into a deep depression, but when she got her new cat a few months later she was back to normal. Of course she still misses her cat like crazy, but the new guy really helps her :) I really hope your pain will soon ease a little.

Just as good. Maybe a cat would be better, as your may think of it as not "replacing" Sissy more if it was a different species. Just remember that some cats can turn... Let's go with PURE EVIL- like my August :P

If we did get a cat, it would be de-clawed. I really don't want it doing anything to grandma. My BFF cats (4 of them in different places) had litters. So I could get one from her for free.

I will say I'm anti-declawing...it's like cutting the tips of your fingers off. Very mean. Buy scratching posts and soft-paws nail tips for your cat, don't declaw. BUT I love my cats, and they are much more low maintenance than dogs. My one cat doesn't even know he has claws, his vet even asked me if he was declawed once because he just never uses them (unless it's on a scratching post).

I still don't want to take any risks… I'm worried about my fish and my grandma. I know it's a not of a mean thing to do, but that would be best for us.
