Having two dogs is an experience that is worth all the trouble. There will be times that just seem so hectic that you want to be like an ostrich and bury your head in the sand, but those troubles will never amount to the joy you will receive once you learn to laugh about them. They’re like any experience in life;with a joke here & there, they can make a great story.
Young pups are the cutest damn things you will ever squeal over. It’s terrible what they can get away with while putting on that innocent puppy look. They will though, and until the hole in the wall becomes larger than anything that can hide it, you’ll just have to deal with it. Sure you’re going to have to deal with double the responsibility & double the problems, but hey, it’s worth it. You’ll get to meet different people who you never would have before. You see things in a different way. The path you decide to walk on isn’t chosen for no reason, it goes back to our instincts. We want the path of least resistance, and if that means planning ahead to avoid the walkers or just to have the most fun, we’ll do it.
We go through some satisfying times as we have dogs. That first walk, on which you stop every 100 feet to listen to the crazy ladies & their silly voices. Those first tricks that make you feel like Cesar Millan. With two dogs I’ve heard it’s easier to train. Psh, yeah right! It’s constant sibling rivalry, jumping, pushing, & dying for your attention on every move you make. They say it’s easy, but really, I think that was just all the dog whisperers’ jokes on everyday dog owners. We must treat them that way as well, just jokes, because really, there’s no right way to training your dog into being that all-star. There will be bumps, and you’re going to have both high & low moments, but in the end, you’re going to favor the choice you made, even after all the renovations you’ve had to make.
