Me and my husband are going back and fourth on getting two male littermates. I am concerned about How they will bond with us. We understand the financial weight of multiple puppies. I stay at home and have plenty of time to work with them, I know it will be challenging. We just want opinions. We don't want to do anything we will regret.

getting two DS pups is going to be a huge commitment on time and sanity. How much alcohol do you drink now? That will be the first thing you want to be ready for [jk, well, sort of]

What are your goals with the dogs?

Well we decided to just go with one pup for now. We have had our little guy for almost a week now and I am so happy we didn't bring two home! He is an amazing pup!

Tell us about yourself: DS and Mal foster newly approved aug'12 by NADSR and ABMCR. high-functioning Autistic in nyc/hamptons in my 60's. Rescued the smartest dog i had ever seen off nyc street in 2000. Tracedog's intelligence exceeded by multiples my judgement that day. My first [and only as of 10/2012] dog turned out to be a DS, perhaps with a touch of something else, but attention to detail, behavioral traits, and physical habits, movement, and skill identical to DS. But MUCH more intellectual ability. supremely confident in all settings, fearless, very outgoing and social with people and friendly with dogs. Seldom apart in over 12 years, Trace Dog was the most important relationship of my adult life; he was my partner. He died july17,2012. i am dying without him. www.youtube.com/tracesobaka www.dogster.com/dogs/637612
