My elderly Mom with slight dementia lives with me. She has had 2 dogs in that time and both got very ill and had to be put down. The last one had accidents in the house and Mom fed her several times a day because unless I was home she would forget if she had fed her and forget to let her out. I have explained that we are not getting another dog because her memory is slipping and I don't want "accidents" all over my home, and I get my heart broken when we have to put them down. Her last dog just got put down a week ago and all she does is cry and whine because I won't let her have another dog. It is seriously like having a small child. I need suggestions.
