I think most of the threads are referring to getting two pups very close in age to eachother (like mcdanfam). You will need to make the commitment to make sure they get time away from each other. The 8wk old can become too dependent on the older dog and not learn on its own how to deal with situations. On the other hand, the older dog can help immensely with potty training (monkey see, monkey do). If your older dog doesnt have any anxiety issues, aggression issues and the like, then it can help bring the pup along. Just make sure they are getting their own time and not always together.
