We got Kodi in Jan. 2006 and by the summer I was searching for another puppy. Kodi is very sweet and gentle. When he first meets a new puppy he likes the ones that are low key, not all up in his face. So we finally found the second puppy and picked her up the Fri. before New Year's Eve. When he saw Shelby, he hid behind me and wanted nothing to do with her. We were staying at a hotel, so I left to go get dinner. When I got back to the room, the two puppies and my husband were on the floor playing. The playing has not let up.
Shelby's personality is totally different from Kodi's and that makes life interesting. If she is overtired and doesn't want to play anymore, she lets him know it. She will growl at him until he leaves her alone. But she is the cuddly one who kisses you all day. Kodi will give hugs and kisses when he wants your attention.
Every waking moment they are playing, running, chasing. It is great. I finally have time to do some things around the house, because up until now, I was Kodi's playmate. I had to keep him occupied all the time, playing ball, taking walks, etc. I used to take him for 3 walks a day just to keep him busy. Now it's down to one walk (I'll add a 2nd walk when the days get longer).
I'm still active with both puppies, but now there is a diversion, and I wouldn't trade either of them. It's really great to have two. It's a good thing I don't have a bigger house. Oh, I also have 3 cats.
