    Dogs are brilliant in many ways the old saying that we don't deserve them is true they are loyal unconditionally in nearly every case. That said I prefer cats and have 2 of them, they are getting on a bit now it'll be a sad day when they pass it's the worst time of having a pet.

    Good luck with your pooch search.

    I know that feeling exactly, although my other dog is still alive so I am settling in to 4th place

    The ones you’d end up bending over the bins, pissed up on a Saturday night!





    Sorry did you mean the canine type?

    Springer Spaniel.

    I'd look at a younger one tbh. Some dogs only live about 10 years, so a 9 yr old one is likely on its last legs.

    So what's the criteria then?
    Family pet for kids?
    Are you willing to exercise a lot or a little?

    Everyone loves their own and probably unfair to specify a breed.
    I've a Golden Labrador. Absolutely fabulous dog. He's 8 years old now and starting to slow down a little, but they are an extremely active dog that need plenty of exercise.
    Lots of walking and swimming. can't keep him out of the water. It's in their DNA.
    They are a very sociable dog, get on very well with other dogs and people. Great with kids as they have quite a docile nature and put up with....well dogs abuse.

    He's the only one in the house that actually understands me.
