Sam I Am Posted August 23, 2012 Share Posted August 23, 2012 Well we did it... put our deposit down on a pup. A little girl born two days ago. My DH lost his Scottie girl two yrs ago and misses her and the antics of a Scottie very much. We were going to get another Cairn, but I have my Jock ( and he truly is my dog) and I know my DH wanted another Scottie so a Scottie it is! After all they are related to Cairns... and they are terriers Anyway I do have my concerns. Jock is 11 1/2 yrs old, a bit of a grumpy old guy, doesnt care for most dogs except a couple of female terriers that live in our area. I am really feeling quilty that he wont accept the pup and then what? Will he be miserable, will he get sick will he.... well you get the picture. I love Jock like he is my kid but am I putting to many human emotions into the whole thing? Will the pup drive him mental? So many unknowns as I have never brought a pup into the house with a senior dog. We will be taking an eight hour drive to another province and Jock will be coming along. I think, at least I hope that when we crate the pup to bring her back to Alberta that the drive back the next day with Jock lying beside her in the back of the car will give him time to get to know her a bit before we get to HIS house. Would love to hear other experiences good and bad and what did you do to solve it.
