How come we can't... rant/vent

How come we can't have as many as we want all at once?

Mace's breeder sent an email about the other pup that we were looking at and seems that nobody else wants him. They are willing to give him to us for less since he is the last. They just HAD to fill in how he looks like a good potential for Schutzdienst. They know that is what we wanted.
Why oh why! We can't have 3 pups in the house. Just no way! We aren't staying in Germany past these next 2 years. And to try and transport 2 big dogs is going to be hard enough. None of my friends are looking for a pup. It would have been cool to have a friend have a sibling and watch them grow up. Ah but he is so cute!!! But NO! I will not clean up after 3 puppies! Somebody shoot my heart out. I know I can't but I so want him.

Re: How come we can't... rant/vent

Mace comes home Saturday... so I just have one right now.

And why would I want another? Cause they are cute and fluffy and do you know anyone who can resist puppy breath?

That is what I am thinking. I have a hard time just devoting enough time to Rocky with everything else going on. There is no way I could do 2 puppies at once.

Re: How come we can't... rant/vent

LOL... we got 2 puppies a couple of weeks ago now.

They are beautiful, wonderful, smart and awesome. BUT! I've seriously thought about how wise that decision was at least a dozen times since then. It's difficult, very difficult, to raise two. I couldn't imagine having a 3rd!

Re: How come we can't... rant/vent

I have a two year old and a puppy right now. PLENTY enough to do with both of them. I could NEVER in million years imagine having two of the puppies that I have now together as puppies...
I can resist puppy breath when I think of the responsibility that goes along with it... the puppy breath only lasts for so long.. and then you have two of them eating your couch...
I have also heard when you get two puppies at the same time, they tend to bond with each other rather than with the human... obviously you wanna devote time for both...
Good for you if you can do it with two, or three... I know I never could.

Re: How come we can't... rant/vent

With three you would have a pack unto themselves. With two you will have to separate them most of the time in order to get them bonded to you (as someone pointed out above) and in order to train them and ensure they accept you as pack leader. I would think it's almost impossible with three to give them each the time they need to develop and train, both physically and mentally.

Re: How come we can't... rant/vent

think this way
two puppies or three? well for one, puppies dont stay puppies, and then you would have 3 huge dogs to transport on a plane, thats alot of work, money and time. they stay pups for about a second and then 3 pups all at once eating furniture, shoes, digging holes, etc etc ALL AT ONCE.
then look at them all, hug them close and try to blind yourself and heart to it all. dont forget they stay pups for 3 yrs at least most do. i know with bearla being 2 1/2 and with us full time then i have her sister who is under a yr for visits and that is chaos unto itself, so 3 at once? unless you have unlimited strengh, resources and Czar mallone living with you. think about it, and then think again. that is also 3 times the vet bills. have i talked you out of it yet

I'd rather be hated for who i am than loved for who im not. An old shoshoni saying about loosing someone you love, MY HEART IS ON THE GROUND, NOW I MUST PICK IT UP AND MOVE ON

Re: How come we can't... rant/vent

As a single person with 3 dogs I find myself leaving one home at times when I go out. I only have 2 arms. LOL! Usually, it's Balto who is left home as he's still a little hellion.
