I just went from one poodle to two. I can't lie, it is harder, but I would do it again. They love to play together and Carley is 8 years old ! They wait on each other when they go out to potty. It is very sweet, but the main reason is I love to see Stella LOVING her life and knowing I gave it to her...

We've had 2 dogs at a time and 1 dog at a time and I like have 2 better. The only parts that I think are more difficult are extra costs of food, grooming and kenneling. We've always had bigger dogs so it isn't as easy to go visiting but not impossible and if we can't take them with us, they have each other wherever they are. The 2 we have now aren't even best friends but they sure do miss each other if separated.

Fostering sounds like a good idea. Don't forget it's not just you and Beau, you need to make sure you offer Louie the best home environment too. He has already been left once, so it's the right thing to not commit unless certain

That said....he is adorable!!!! I want him for home with Harry !!!LOL

I thought of you today, when after 20 minutes waiting patiently in one bank while we sorted out a complex issue for my neighbour, my dogs found themselves waiting even longer while my own bank muddled up a fairly simple request. They were very quiet, and not pulling on the leash, but I was aware of subdued squeaking - I looked down and they were playing a wonderful game of mouth wresting at my feet, happily entertaining each other while the humans got on with whatever boring stuff it was that kept them busy ... sometimes two really are easier than one!

My Gibbs is also shy/afraid of other dogs as he has been attacked twice by dogs of irresponsible pet owners. I really wanted a companion for him. So, we got a pup. I was super nervous so I had my 18 year old daughter who is absolutely amazing with animals intoduce them (I didn't want my nerves to affect Gibbs) and now, 2 1/2 months later, Gibbs is the best big brother ever. I am so amazed at him (I know I shouldn't be, after all he is a poodle), he is extremely patient and I pretty much didn't even have to potty train the puppy, Gibbs did it for us (the puppy follows him and does everything he does). Whenever the puppy picks something up she is not suppose to, like a shoe, Gibbs snatches it from her and brings it to me. He knows what is allowed and what is not! Anyways, it could work and I defeinately think two is better than one! Good Luck.

I was also going to say that poodles seem to know their own breed somehow (my pom was the sam way with other poms too). Lily likes other dogs but seems to be more connected when she meets other poodles and poodle mixes. I think a "trial run" /foster home is a great idea. No pressure and see how things go. Let us know...

So we continue to mull over this big decision. I know I have to move fast, because pure-bred poodles like Louie get snapped up quick. I just spoke with Madeline, and she tells me he's chipped, neutered, and ready to go. She even has his AKC papers. She suggests I bring Beau over, and we let them have a chance to play together for an hour in a separate run. Then, if they get along, they ride home and enter the house together so Louie doesn't just "invade" Beau's turf. Only thing is, Beau get very anxious as we approach her house -- he recognizes where we are going pretty quickly. So I wonder if he will be himself, or too stressed to even pay attention to Louie. Guess there's only one way to find out.

Poodles must generate some sort of reality distortion field, cause I can't believe I'm seriously considering this.

MPS strikes again. I can't even tell you the joy multiples bring into your life. You have to experience it for yourself and you will never want an only child again.
