Next thoughts

We’ve spent a good bit of time lately (knowing what was coming) talking about what happens to our animal family after Hermione passed.  We decided that it’d be time to bring another dog (preferably puppy) into the house, so that thought is now out there.

It’ll probably be a while yet, as this isn’t likely to be a rescue, but it means we’ve started listing potential names and such, which is a fun Squirrel Brain what-if game.  I’ve always known I had another Dalmatian in me someday, and this may be the time.

Lyra needs a friend.  The cats might be able to learn how to get along with a puppy.  Emphasis on might. And R’s a dog person, turns out.  I’m bi-species, but would rather each cat have a cat friend and each dog have a dog friend.
