    Ok so you all know my cousins are getting a toy poodle puppy in a few weeks time.

    My uncle, aunt and the girls went to see them on Tuesday - and have posted me pics...now i'm not sure if my uncle is being serious or not but he quotes 'went to see puppies today, so adorable. Maybe we should buy them both'.

    I'm sitting here shaking my head hoping to god he's not serious!

    i know! it'll be twice the work for them esp as new dog owners! I feel like asking him if he's serious but i don't want to sound like the interfering hag! Wonder if i should post a new copy of 'The Perfect puppy' to them lol!

    Would you not be able to explain to them abit about the troubles the pups will grow up with and the trouble they will have training them!? Or they not likely to listen!
    I hope there joking as imo two dogs from the same litter grow up to depend on each other witch isnt the best thing!

    About 20 years ago I really wanted a lurcher puppy, I had been training working lurchers for years and wanted one of my own, when I went to pick the pup up I found her in a sorry state and hiding behind a chair was her sister, they were the only two pups left out of a litter of 12, the house was covered in dog poo and the pups had massive pot bellies, smelled really bad and were covered in fleas,

    I bought both of them without even thinking about it, when I got home my ex OH went mad hahahaa

    those two were wonderful dogs, they listened to everything I said and were both really easy to train :)

    what I am saying is that sometimes it works out ok x

    My friend went to see a litter of white gsd pups with the intention of getting of getting one and came home with two...
    two pups, she wasn't allowed to meet the mother, they were being fed tesco dog food, and were told firstly they were family pets that were accidentally mated, then were told the woman was infact a breeder!

    I'd have walked away, not taken 2 of them!

    Wow two pups at the same time. That is a little nuts if you ask me. It is alot of work to train one pup let alone two at the same time. Hope they seriously think on the decision before making up their minds.

    Exactly :) I still have two pups here and they are both as good as gold, both sit when asked, come when called both are fully house trained (even though I didn't exactly train them, I think mum did) and both of them can climb the stairs to bed :D

    I am not sure of the downside yet but will keep you posted lol
