I've had several in my life, but I'm done with them inside. The messes they create and the money they cost me wasn't really worth it looking back, mostly had labs. Let's not even talk about the hair in the carpet, vents, blankets, food....etc! When this ones gone we are done with animals in the house, already making the switch to hard floors and sweeping / vacuuming daily in the new place. Here lately she decided to start smelling like Doritos? Been to the groomer for shampoo and shave, that helped for a week at best. I can't imagine what carpet holds.
But, sorry for your loss!
