I've always been a dog person and I love my dogs, but now that I'm a parent I just have so much less time for them. I still take good care of them, walk them, etc, but my priorities have definitely shifted. Mojo is 12 now, and thankfully still in great shape, but realistically he's not gonna live for another decade. When he does go, I'll be horribly sad (god, not to mention how my son will feel about it - that'll be fun.) but I won't be in a hurry to get another dog. Lemmy's still young, and hopefully dumb enough that he'll forget Mojo relatively quickly and enjoy not sharing attention.
Fucking hell, what a fucking downer of a post.
