    Still getting over the sad loss of my beautiful girl Shadow, now getting another Utonagan bitch puppy. Carol has told me NOT to fuss her..... I will! Just feeling so guilty. Her name is Lily, pics to come shortly but is it too early?

      There is no need to feel guilty @Vince. You're obviously feeling a little better about Shadow or you wouldn't have thought about having another one yet. Shadow will remain with you even if Lily steals your heart too. :)

        I googled them as not heard of the breed before. Lovely looking dogs :).

        Another pet can help with the grieving process. You and Lily will make new memories together, but you will never forget Shadow, who he was and what you meant to each other. I look forward to seeing pics of your puppydog :)

              Shadow was a girl and a fantastic mother, just what Lily would have needed, she adored puppies, whether hers or others, just thinking about her brings tears to my eyes. My avatar pic is Arwen, one from Shadow's first litter.

                It's not too early for you, Vince, and it's certainly not to early for a Puppy out there who would live a long, loved and happy Life by being with you.:thumbsup::love30::snorky:

                  I had the privilege of meeting Shadow and, I saw first hand, the wonderful bond you had together. I ask you this: what would Shadow want you to do? We both know the answer!
                  Shadow would be saying: puppy? Did someone say, "puppy"? Bring it on!!! :doggieshmooze:

                  Looking forward to seeing pictures of Lily; knowing how she will bridge the gap between loss and beginnings :grphg:

                  Lily is a lucky girl to have you and Carol to look after her :fingers crossed:

                  Oh, and to answer the question: no, it is not too early, nor too late, but the timing seems just right ;)

                  Love and luck to you all xxMxx

                    Lily is with us, she's so confident around our "grown ups" who have welcomed her into our pack, she is gorgeous but so cheeky with it (Just like her older big 1/4 sister Arwen). Yep, I think she's here to stay!
