Another Puppy!!!

Well, it looks like I'm gonna find out what it's like to raise 2 puppies at once. Yikes!!!

Let me explain... Shadow's breeder called today and told me she has a puppy she wants to give me. You may remember she offered to give me one when we lost Shadow. Well, we haven't been in touch for awhile so, I wasn't sure she hadn't changed her mind. As a result of my uncertainty, I decided to look for one on my own. That's where Jan comes in with MyKee. He's coming to live here probably the 1st week of Oct. Guess when the other puppy will be ready to leave his mommy??? Yep, same week.

Boy, am I gonna need your support to get through this! I am excited about it, but at the same time, I'm very concerned about doing what's right for them both and being able to keep my sanity in the process.

I emailed Jan as soon as I knew. God bless her, she called me and offered to "step up" MyKee's training to make it easier for me. She is such an angel!

I'll post pics as soon as I decide which one of the pups I'll take that Shadow's breeder is offering.

OMG !!!!!!!!! Leslie, I don't know whether you should laugh or cry, but we WILL support you in any way we can!!! Of course, I could come over and help out and maybe even take one off your hands. You'll be so flustered and exhausted from lack of sleep, that you'll likely not even notice a thing. Hmmmmmm........ yup, sounds like a plan.

BTW ...... CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!

Tell us more, more, MORE!!!

Wow! Two pups! What does this do to the naming choices for the pups?

I think it is time for you to change your name from Havashadow to Havahandful!

Congrats!

Leslie, you have been through so much in such a short time. If you could get through what you did with Shadow, you can get through 2 little puppies. In fact, it will probably be easier to housebreak 2 the same age, because they will learn from each other. Good luck!!!! And just keep your computer on 24/7 and holler when you need us.

Maybe now MyKee can keep his name, and you can rename the 2nd one. Or, we have to start all over with names of "pairs" like...
Abbott and Costello
Dean and Jerry
Bud and Lou
Ben and Jerry

Oh, is the other pup a boy? If not...
Thelma and Louie
Antony and Cleo
Dharma and Greg


Michele
Kodi & Shelby's Mom and Julian's Grandma

Havahandful, is right!

Michele- Jan suggested that if MyKee is trained perhaps he can be the example for the other one. I sure hope so...

Leslie,

Wow, two puppies!!! That's pretty amazing, but you can do it. Just think of all the fun you are going to have bringing up babies.

Ohmygosh, Leslie! You really hit the jackpot! Yes, you will definitely have your hands full. But puppyhood doesn't last forever, and I'm sure you'll have 2 great dogs. How nice that Jan is stepping up MyKee's training. Hopefully, others on the Forum that have had 2 young dogs at the same time can give some good advice. Congratulations on getting 2 new furbabies!
