Joe, ditto on what Julie said! Both boys prefer us over each other.
I have to say that Lincoln was not thrilled when we brought home Scout, since Lincoln is way more submissive. Scout drove him crazy a bit with the puppy energy and just his more dominant behavior. After about a year, they seemed to accept each other more - Scout behaves better, and Lincoln has learned to stand up for himself a tiny bit more.
They just had a 12-day vacation from each other (they stayed with different friends when we went on our trip) and they actually seemed happy to see each other when we brought them back home! So, like an old married couple, they irritate each other some, they play some, and they are used to each other's companionship. I feel better when I have to leave the house. The ironic thing is that Lincoln is very happy being alone but Scout is not. So I guess the benefit of the second one has been primarily for us humans!
