I only have a 1/2 hav, he's 15 months old now... but I got sucked into the foster mom thing and I fostered a 9 wk old anatolian (my usual breed) pup - in August 2010, boy, named him Oz.
He hasn't left my side side. but him and Ollie (my little guy) they are inseparable. I was skeptical to have two boys, as I have always have a boy and a girl (I have a femal anatolian 6 yr old, she gets along great with my little guy, just ok with the male anatolian Oz), I'm so glad the boys have each other, as they play non-stop all day. and they are (moreso Oz) in the middle of eating my brand new leather couch. other than that, it's awesome and they will grow old together. it's good for both of them as they learn to share things and me, and all that good stuff.
I think if you can afford it, ppl should always have two dogs.
Oz was about the same size as Ollie when I got Oz, but now Oz is 65 lbs and still growing. I"m sure Ollie is thinking why are you so big? I love watching them play. it's hysterical. esp tug of war. Oz like to lay on top (chest, like a 'down' position) of Ollie so Ollie can't walk away or leave... Ollie isn't too hot on that.
anyway I digress... I feel even though I have three right now (never thought I would) two is ideal in my world. I've thought about getting another small dog for Ollie, but I love him so much I can't imagine loving another little one as much, it would seem unfair.
