Do any of you worry about this.-janet.

Janet, you are far too young to worry about that my darling. But I understand
having a plan if you are ill, perhaps having an agreement with a friend or relative to
take the dog, or even if you are healthy and just want a peace of mind. No one
knows what the future holds, for young or old, no one can predict how long you
or your dog will live, all we can do is enjoy the ride and hope for the best. Don't
let such worries consume you.

Janet,
Please don't worry about that you are only 55, my mother just got a new puppy because she lost her beloved boy this October. She has a wonderful little 2 pound girl who is the love of her life. And I am so happy she got her. I see the smile on my mothers face everyday . And my mother is 68.

Enjoy your little one.

Love Regina and Timmy.

Hi Janet. I'm 45. Yes, I do think about that too. I don't dwell on it, but it's definitely a concern. To ease my concern, The Wees have a Godfather. Should something happen to me, they will go to live with "friend" as we call him. He adores The Wees, and they adore him. Hopefully I never have to cross that bridge though. Try not to worry. Just set aside some arrangements, and that should help you relax.

I am 64 and I have only had Ike for 2 months, he is almost 4 months old. I try not to think about it, but my daughter assured me he would be taken care of ,if something happened to me. She is a dog love like me. So I am not worried. Just enjoy your puppy and life with him.

I worry about it and I'm in my 20s! I actually plan on writing some care sheets to go with our will just in case anything were to happen to us. It will be like an Odie/cats instruction manual and will just make me feel better about things.

I worry too and I'm 18 in a month! I think everyone does. I have a lot more than just Douglas to worry about though...there would be a custody battle over him between family and close friends. I worry more for my ferrets, chickens, and rodents than anything. I think my dad would care for my birds. But my rodents and love bird...who would want a misfit bunch like them other than me? Some of them are animals who have such trauma they live alone of their own free will, completely rejecting any contact, and are happy that way.

I would keep a living will if I were you, if it really worries you. I plan on doing the same for my pets on my 18th.
