Pet options? Is a dog irresponsible?

Me previously and previously. Sadly, the surgery wasn't successful-- the cancer returned, and I'm saying my goodbyes this week. Yesterday I was asked if I could adopt two bonded senior dogs. Obviously, I can't for the foreseeable future, but now I'm thinking about possibly getting a dog as a next pet. Looking for opinions or relevant experience. [more inside]

Interested in adopting a dog that will be nice to my cats. Advice?

We have two awesome indoor-only cats. Both of them are rescues - one of them grew up with dogs and LOVES DOGS and the other one doesn't know what dogs are. Both are very large ragdolls (a breed that tends to like dogs). We're interested in considering adding a dog to our home and would be grateful on advice regarding breeds and the age of the incoming dog. Thanks! [more inside]
