Couldn't resist, we are getting another doodle. He is cream and was born on 3/31. we may drive down to get him tomorrow, waiting to hear from the breeder. My daughter is about ready to bust a gut!! She has picked out the name Pongo from 101 Dalmations, we'll see if it fits! Lani will have a brother!! Lisa

We are getting the puppy they named "Sully" he is the first one on the left. My sister called from Iraq this morning and she also liked the look of "Sully". Julie says they are fluffier than Lani, I'm so excited and think I'm a little crazy at the same time! :lol:

Congrats, Lisa - Sully/Pongo is so cute. I've been very tempted lately to add to our brood but we need more space first (best reason I can think of to move!). Can't wait to meet your new guy.

Holy cow!!! I'm so excited for you! You will have a blast having two! We keep Summer and Duke's crates next to each other, but with about two or three inches of space in between them. Oh Lani is going to love having another pup! Congrats!

Bridget, Summer, and Duke

Here are pictures of Toby,we decided not to name him Pongo I can't get them to post otherwise. Lani is being a pain!!! How do I deal with her not leaving him alone? She is relentless, he does snap and growl to get her to back off. HELP!!!! :cry:

LOVE the pictures- he's adorable! He absolutely looks like a Toby! As far as getting her to leave him alone- welcome to the world of having two!! LOL! It will stop... after about 3 months! LOL! I do recommend spending time with them separately. Take Lani for a nice walk alone, and have someone else play with Toby by himself. I think it helps to teach them that its okay to be separate, and it lets them have a break from each other. I'm so happy for you guys!

Bridget, thanks for the suggestions, they will help to make sure that Lani doesn't get too jealous and that Toby gets some alone time. He is very sweet but can tell Lani to back off very effectively!!

You're going to love having two! It is a little nuts for a while, though, but you'll all figure it out. What cuties!

I agree, give them a break from each other now and then. He still needs a lot of sleep anyway, so maybe he can have a quiet spot somewhere for his crate for a while. Maybe Lani can be with you (tethered?) when he naps. Plus he still has those really SHARP puppy teeth, doesn't he?

You are right it is crazy right now. Luckily Lani still sleeps quite a bit dutring the day. We have his crate in my daughter's room right now and I put him in there today for a nap. I know it will be great right now I'm thinking about the sanity of an 11 week old and 6 month old puppy at the same time. They are playing tug/keep away/chase me right now. I am suffering sleep depravation already!! I started this over an hour ago and forgot about it!!! :shock:

Congratulations!!! Chester will make a great big brother! It will be great to have another brother around. Do you live up in the Wauconda area, I can't remember? I emailed Julie and asked of she could email picts of the year old doodle from the same parents so my husband can see what Toby will probably look like since he looks so different from Lani.

Things are a little less wild today, more sleeping, less frenzied play and less inside potty accidents. Here is a picture.
:lol:



Toby's first night.
