Starting to think about getting a second dog


Since we lost our Staffie, Daisy, last August, I haven't been able to think about getting another dog to be a companion for our English bull terrier cross, Mabel. But I'm starting to consider the idea now, though the pain of loss is still incredibly raw.

I love Staffordshire bull terriers, and wish we could get another dog from the same Australian bloodline as Daisy. Her temperament was excellent: pure love for us, with an indomitable spirit when the occasion required. This is Daisy (top right) as a pup with her siblings, and a shot of her mother, Shari.

If you're not a dog lover, there will be more motorsickles along soon!

Lots of rescue dogs need adoption!

Go for it... you know you'll love it. I've never met a staffy that wasnt awesome. I have 2 staffies, a 13yo male and an 8yo female, and my parents just got one after being around mine throughout the years. I know that you cant replace a lost dog; but theres another one out there looking for "the good life" with somebody like you. Best of luck!

I got one too, just turned one. Running around the house, destroying stuff and being a complete asshole and the next second he's thee sweetest thing in the world. Wouldn't trade him for anything.
