i have a low thyroid too. (haha) i had no idea what it was..and i stopped taking my medication..man alive did my friends get pissed at me and make me start tkaing it again..once on it you cant ever get off.
but in human form at least its no big deal..and i bet its no big deal in pups as well. they're affordable enough if you mix it in with the food.
i think its a good idea, when i first moved out of my apartment..we were amongst MANY MANY changes in my family..we had just lost our 13 year old cat..my parents were selling the house.. my mom switched careers from being a home daycare worker.. so i found myself a pet friendly place and brought my other 13 year old cat with me. well for a cat who came from a 3 cat, 1 dog, 4 human house to a little apartment it was pretty lonly for him. i adopted him a friend..simba.
our lives have never been the same. simba was that ...ball of fire we needed for sure. i think the idea of an older dog is great..and it would be great to keep your pup company and entertained while your away each day.
If your place lets you..and you can afford it..i say go meet the dog maybe even bring your pup to see what happens?
and yes..take a camera with you (im a HUGE fan of big life moments..if you brought her home with you (and you probably will if you meet her) first meeting pictures are priceless.
Oliver and Max, i will meet you at the Rainbow bridge. I love you both.
wait for me...
