Sums up what I was going to say quite well

My only concern is they are the exact same age so you will be most likely dealing with two seniors and their health issues But it's manageable and years away

My Pack:

Jasmine - Female Miniature Poodle - born Aug 15, 2010
Loker Delgado Von Stalworth - Male GSD - born Jan 26, 2012
Koda & Zazu - 5 year old male cats
Alex - Male Cocker Spaniel (rescue) - RIP Cuddlebug 2007-2010
