Should I get another dog...

Hi. I have a 13 month old dog named Jenny. Two weeks ago Jenny was wetting the bed at night so I took her to the vet and we thought it was just a urinary tract infection... but after a battery of tests with no positive results the diagnosis we are left with is congenital renal dysplasia. She isn't wetting the bed anymore and she hasn't shown any outward signs of feeling bad, that's why it took so long to diagnose her. I'm engaged and my fiance and i were planning to get Jenny a companion when we got married. But with her shortened life I'm wondering if i should get her a friend now, because I'm still in school and my fiance works full time. And I don't want her to be lonely. Jenny loves other dogs, I just don't want to put any undue stress on her, but I want to give her the life she deserves, even if it is short. Please, any advice on what we should do would help. She could have some good months left or she could live to maybe see 3 y/o. Thanks

I would wait with another dog. Give Jenny all your time and attention now.
