How soon is too soon to suggest another Poodle once our beloved Poodle is gone?

My parents had two black standard Poodles, both of which were wonderful and pure joy. Sadly, both are now gone (with the second one, who was absolutely perfect in every respect, passing earlier this week).

Nobody can ever replace them, and we are all devastated.

I see a black standard Poodle up for adoption at a local rescue shelter. My parents have stated that one reason why they're so upset is that there is a huge void in their lives now.

Is it too soon to send the link to the rescue shelter (featuring the beautiful Poodle) to them? If it's appropriate to send it to them, how would you do it?

Thank you!

Only your parents can tell you the answer. Even though you're being very loving and thoughtful about it, it's possible that, in a way, they may not want another dog right away. It's also possible that they do (in time). There are certain liberties that come with no longer having to care for your pet, and there are many responsibilities that come with another.
