We have two new additions to our family, the white one is Buster Truman and the tan one is Libby Mae.
We only planned on getting this sweet girl, but on the way to my parent's I mentioned to my husband that it might be better to get two puppies if the breeder had two left. He didn't shut me down immediately so that meant there was a chance! Haha!
My logic: We would be going through the puppy phase with one dog and it wouldn't be that much more work with two at the same time. Two puppies might minimize the whining and crying and separation anxiety that comes with taking a puppy away from its mother. They are little, how much work could it be?
I'm not sure if my logic was correct! It's like having twin babies that just learned to crawl! They are both so little, there are many hazards that could hurt them right now. Buster almost slipped through my back fence the other day. They do keep each other company though and play together and cuddle together when they sleep. There's lots of shenanigans going on! Anything that dangles is something to play with, pant legs, ruffly socks, laptop cords...the skirt of my sofa! I may be getting rid of my sofa sooner than I planned! Yippee! I don't like what I have and have been wanting a new sofa for years! Haha!
This guy. He is so sweet. I'm glad we got him. Libby is a little more independent and somewhat standoffish, which is fine, she stays out of trouble that way! Buster is curious and loving and he likes to eat. He lets Sutton hold him like a baby and put him in a baby carrier. He just goes with the flow. Libby is going to be easier to potty train I think. This guy is going to take awhile. Libby will sit in one place if she is unsure. Buster follows his sniffer where ever it takes him.
These two will definitely be keeping me on my toes for awhile!
