Mom is living way past what Drs thought Thanksgiving, I have wanted to get a puppy to help me cope but everyone tells me no. I am not doing well with her terminal illness after months of caring for her with the help of my brother and our local Hospice. I am so stressed out. I love the outdoors and having a dog with me, that has been not only a stress reliever for me but mostly having the companionship of a dog. Is this wrong?
