After losing our lovely Ruairi only a week ago I'm watching Dillon our older boy who will be 9 at the end of July very carefully.
He's the type of boy who I think will now get old without his Mr Motivator and am wondering if we should get him a companion. He and Ruairi were both entire and it was never an issue, not for a moment. They were uncle and nephew and we had Ruairi as an 8 week old puppy when Dillon was 2 and a half.
If we decide to get him a companion we would want anither boy but should we get a puppy or an older boy of say 4 or 5?
Is a puppy going to just be a pest to Dillon and not as much of a companion or would an older boy try to dominate him as he's such a gentle giant?
I'd really appreciate advice from anyone.
Thank you all for your sympathy and support over the past week. xx
