    So cute. I'm also surprised that most people don't like having two dogs. We've always had minimum 2 dogs my whole life other than that one year, wouldn't have it any other way!

    Hahahahaha you're gonna be sorry!!

    Good luck to you. Maybe buy a robot vacuum cleaner for all the hair. So much hair.

    Full disclosure: growing up I've always had two dogs. My mum had three dogs at one point. I love and have loved them all.

    There are times I'm glad of both dogs, like if I ever feel unsafe at home I know ain't nobody coming in our house with all the noise that two shepherd crosses make.

    But with a new baby, it really is a much harder chore that every day my day revolves around trying to get the two dogs, baby and pram to the off leash park for a run.

    Seriously. It goes:

    Get baby ready - feed, change
    Get pram in car - this is a struggle because where with one dog I could maybe fit the pram in the boot with the dog, with two that's the whole boot gone
    Get dogs in car
    Drive to park
    Assemble pram
    Baby in pram
    Let dogs out who explode out of the boot because with two of them it's instant chaos
    Fail to get baby to sleep with two dogs constantly running over to the pram and barking at each other
    Pick up poos - not one per dog but sometimes several per dog if they are in the mood. The most I've had to pick up is five poos in one park trip
    Everyone back in car
    Home
    Collapse, swear I'm not doing it tomorrow

    ...wake up, repeat.

    It would be so nice to just walk to the park with one dog on a leash but once you've got two and they form a pack if you leave one at home they howl and howl. It's worse than leaving a solo dog home.

    I'd love to go camping with DH and DS and even to a dog friendly place but those aren't really meant for two lunatic dogs... One well behaved one maybe...

    My advice is think about all the practicalities - how will you walk two dogs? Will you and your husband always be able to do the walks together?

    Is your car big enough for two dogs plus kids and prams?

    Are you planning anymore kids?

    Do you like to go on holidays?

    Do you rent or own? If renting, finding a place with one dog is hard enough but no sane landlord is renting to the two dog family...

    Can you afford the pet insurance?

    If all of this is not an issue then go for it, you'll have two lovely doggy personalities to love.

    We had one dog. She was great. Then I "had" to have another dog. They egged each other on in the worst exploits and helped each other escape from the yard to go on escapades lol. I'm firmly in the "one dog!" camp lol

    Yeah that's a thing. Of our two, the first one never barked, didn't chew or dig and only did poos in one corner in the back of the yard. So polite, so respectful.

    Then we got the terror! Her damage bill is several thousand dollars in shoes and sunglasses and trees believe it or not, and she's taught the good dog to dig!!

    Labs are nice though. Might be better behaved.
