Ours are part of our family- they are allowed in most of the house (not the toilets or my sons room- for their safety) and they sleep with us. We wouldn't have it any other way.
It's hard to understand how some people can be cruel to animals, or like your friend, not seem to be affected when they are ill or more so when they pass. This is especially true when you'd give anything to have more time with your baby.

I'm sure you and your family will find the right breed and pet for you when you are ready. I would say that whoever is going to do most of the potty training and other training should have the majority vote.

Your house sounds like ours. Where we are they are also. I agree that the person taking care of the pet should have the majority vote. I have had a boxer for the past 17 years. Boxers will also be my breed of choice. We are not getting another pet until around Christmas time, or sometime after the first of the year. My husband is set on getting a Siberian Husky when the time is right. I'm not thrilled with the idea, but after losing our last 2 boxers with Lymphomia there is nothing that I will be able to say to convince him of getting another boxer for our next pet. I told him that I am ok with that breed if it's what he wants, but that he has to get a puppy. From what I read about Husky's they are good dogs, but we have 2 other dogs that are smaller and that makes me a little nervous. I know that boxers are like little babies, generally they love every animal and person that they see.

I've heard there's an excess of husky's due to the popularity over the last few years of Game of Thrones. Many people want one since they are similar in appearance to the dire wolves. Depending on where you are a puppy may be easy to find. I'm lucky that my husband is partial to Boxers too.

I think the decision on when or if to get a new furkid varies with each person. I wish you luck and many happy years with whatever puppy you get.

Good luck if you get a Husky. Not sure how familiar you guys are with the breed, but my buddy has had them his whole life. They can be extremely high drive and difficult to train. They also tend to be high on the "bite list" ever year because people don't correctly train them or exercise them enough physically and mentally. Just figured I would throw that out there. Would definitely look for a good breeder to fit your family and your existing dogs needs. Good luck

Yes, unfortunately that is what I have heard also. I am do not like breeders, but I feel like with getting a husky it is best to get one as a puppy and from a reputable breeder. My husband has done some research from where we will be getting him from. We believe that he will be coming from a good place. The breeder is 4 1/2 hours away from us and it seems like they take very good care of their animals. If I had my way I would be getting another boxer when the time is right, but my husband is set on getting a husky.

I figured you guys did your research. When you get a good one and train them properly they are incredible dogs! Good luck and keep us posted!

Thank-you! We are going to have our work cut out for us when it comes to training. We are going to sign him up for classes to help us along the way also. I will definitely keep everyone posted.
