Always nice to get a pup when you still have the old dog . The old dog helps train the young dog by the puppy see puppy do method & the puppy gives a companion to the old dog & brings back a little life if done right . Unless really bonded both need a rest from each other now & then tho . Luck

Go for it Kenya. And if you can, try to get one about three months instead of the legal two months. They are more socialized with other dogs and have a lot greater muscle control for housetraining etc. All the breeders want them gone the day they are two months, make more money, feed less, less nuisance etc. But if you can get one just that little older, its easier for you and for them.
Farrier is right on that! you want a pup 12 weeks old ideally.

I saw a dog show - the trainer was in the family's house to help train the dog/family and help behaviour issues. The dog was big and nasty aggressive - the trainer took the dog away permanently - he said dogs that are taken away too early as pups have confidence (aggressive) issues that might not be fixable.

the show was At The End of my Leash - Brad Pattison

FYI : it could also be a side effect of winter "blahs" - "mine is chicken on the brain" the desire to acquire birds I don't need - also has me endlessly researching things I don't actually need or by or do - gardening, greenhouses, kijiji searches of birds for sale, snowmobiles for sale, etc.

I've been looking for a LGD and found the perfect one, 2 years old, with livestock currently, needing a new home....all that....and she's in sault ste marie! argh!
anyways, we ARE getting a puppy this spring, a lab....yellow or red or chocolate....as a new hunting buddy for my hubby. skeet is just too old and wobbly and well, most days just holds down the bed in front of the fireplace. so i'm going through the puppy thing too, sigh. but we'll wait till spring....and then after that one is trained hopefully i'll find me a LGD somewhere.

and i found some vorwerk.....argh. like i have room (NOT) but.....but but....

My female dog died in mid-April. I got a new puppy in mid-May. I wasn't going to get another one right away, but my male dog was depressed. My older dogs were only 6 months apart in age and had been very close. I also thought he would be able to help train the puppy. The male is a very good house dog. Well, he doesn't love her. He tolerates her sometimes, but sometimes I have to separate them because she's bugging him and he's growling at her. She jumps all over him and he's not a fan of that. When she was small she would bite his legs with her lovely pointy teeth. He's 9 and she's 10 months. I seriously considered getting an adult dog, but was worried that there might be personality conflicts. The older dog can teach the puppy what he'll put up with. Puppies are a lot of work, but she does make the house more lively and less "old". :)

Well I still have the puppy blues but my husband does not and said NO.
I have him all picked out, just have to go see him if I can get hubby to agree. If I can't I guess its for the best but I still want him and hope he doesn't get sold. As you can see he is not an enabler like the rest of you.
