We have our shih-tzu and our spoo and a 10 month old. What is it about poodles that make you just want more, more, more? I can't help myself from browsing through puppies and other dogs. Crazy because we are currently trying to conceive #2 and realistically can't handle a third dog! But it sure is fun to "window shop". Maybe some play time with a fellow poodle friend will help.

Haha- it really has! I really just want a bumper sticker that says, "I have standards" so I need at least one more to make the sticker true. LOL!

This girl is a 6-year-old apricot being retired from breeding. We shall see!

Uh, oh. Careful... It's kind of like kids. Two is a lot more than one and then there's three. We won't talk about three. (Actually, I am thoroughly enjoying three).

How old is dude? The only issue with two dogs close in age is that you will have two old dogs in the future.

Yep 2 dogs same age is how I ended up with 4. Was worried about losing omar and Lila close together. So we did lose Lila but we got Omar a new girlfriend. Lol. The cycle keeps on going.

I have no regrets about getting Stella, but it is harder. I find I don't have the time to groom like before, it takes so much more time to keep two mat free ect. You can't take two as easily as one when going somewhere. I have to watch stella about taking treats ect away from carley. Carley has wondered more now that she has someone to explore with, so I have to keep my eyes on them much more than I did. With one, Carley just stayed by my side, with Stella she has more confidence ... I am so happy that Stella needed a good home, had she already had one, I might feel differant about getting two.

Having two older dogs does concern me a bit, but then again, we had two older large dogs before and it worked out just fine. One was a lab and then the other a lab/chow mix. Granted, this was before we also had two kids, but still, we know what life with two big dogs can be like.

I am going to be very picky about #2, however. I don't want any regrets. We have one fabulous dog already, so I'm in no hurry and I'll only be bringing her home if she is a healthy, very well-behaved girl. That might sound too picky, but we just don't have the energy with two jobs, two kids and two dogs to put a ton of effort into lots of training right now (otherwise I'd get a puppy!).

I hear ya on not wanting to deal with a puppy. I have 3 dogs, and when we started looking for a boxer (my heart breed, sorry...), I contacted a rescue and gave them a ridiculously long must have/must not have list. I thought I'd be told that there is no such boxer on Earth, but...we got Dempsey! He's 5 years old, and we realize that he won't live more than probably 5 more years (in a perfect world), but at least they will be enjoyable years!

Good luck meeting this new girl! I hope she's everything you're looking for!!
