HAVAN TWO!

SO ...It's been 9 days now - and let me tell you gang...it has been great. I had such reservations getting # 2. I thought it would be double the work - but it has actually been easier!!! And not only that - my shoes love it!! They are so busy playing that Ollie no longer gets my shoes - doesn't shred as much TP but last nite they did get in a bit of a serious altercation over my panties - so some things didn't change!!
They love each other already - share a crate - share a 3 bowl food dish that works great - food-water-food layout and share mommy and daddy just fine!!

GO FOR IT!!!

I am sooooo glad that things are working out so well for you, Ollie and Austin. Maybe I would consider a 2nd if I could get the perfect older puppy, like you did. (Perhaps at some point I'll ask you how you got so lucky!) Since Brutus is not totally potty trained yet, I can't see myself going through that again anytime too soon.

Boy Catherine I was just starting to fall asleep at work but that one woke me right up. What is it with these guys and undies?? You can hide them at the bottom of the laundry pile and they will jump in and find them LOL..
I agree 2 is much more easier and a lot more fun. Glad to hear everything is going great.

Thats wonderful to hear Catherine!! I am actually looking for my 3rd. I really need a playmate for Tripp. He tries so hard to play with Dream, but she just wont give him the time of day(most times). And we just cant play the way he wants to! He loves to roll & wrestle. We just applied to a Hav rescue, so we will see how that goes. I am not sure if it matters if its a boy or girl-whoever can keep up with Tripp is fine with us!!!

I was concerned about them being so close in age but it works as they have the same energy level...Ollis actually is the playing instigator (SP?) Austin is the cuddle bunny and would choose to be wrapped around your feet sleeping most of the time but Ollie comes up with a bone and you can almost hear him say.....OK time to chase me and try to get my bone!!!

Then the games begin - I leave for work around 730 - we get up at 6 and they play for an hour inside and out and are exhausted when I leave - they are ready for the first nap of the day!!

Cheryl - I would love to say there was a trick to finding Austin...I did search him out however quite frankly I just think I was really blessed and maybe a large part of dumb blonde luck!!!!!

We get up at 4:45(yes, a.m!) so we have time to play with them before we leave for work & Tripp is ready to play but Dreamer goes back to sleep. We try & chase him around & play but then he tries to get Dreamer up-NOPE!! Unless there is a lap for her to sit on or i leave the room-she's not coming out! I wish i can say he's exhausted when we leave but he isnt.I feel bad about that. We do tire him out in the p.m..
How old is Ollie & Austin & did you purposely look for a boy?

Ollie was 10 months on the 7th...Austin will be 5 months on the 24th...And YES! I wanted another boy....one moody female in the house is enough - and boys ALWAYS love mommy!!

So glad everything is working out for you guys. I had the same feelings when we got Shelby. The whole 3 hr drive hime, I kept wanting to turn around and bring her back. But now, I can't imagine not having her. She is my snuggle puppy. And it is easier, because they keep each other company.

Catherine - I love the boys too and prefer them to females any time. Don't get me wrong I love Brandy (by red standard female), but she is a female.

I am so glad to hear things are working out wonderfully for your boys, knew they would.

About the undies, I can totally relate. Bugsy is a total underwear hound!! My other dogs could care less. I wonder if it's a Hav thing.
