    You guys are so sweet, I will give them a special hug from you, busy fingers. For the most part they are pretty well behaved but once one of them gets excited the others feed off of it and we have a barking fest. And they love people soooo much, whenever anyone comes to the house, regardless who, they get so excited and wrap around the person wanting love. Unfortunately there is not pulling them off until they get some attention.

    And I thought two (as well as a cat) were a handful!

    Love your furballs and I do understand about needing attention before letting go of the new arrival. My 2 dogs do the same thing.
    I meant to behave......but there were too many other options

    I can relate. We have 4 dogs and a cat. People think we are crazy when we go camping with all of them. One of the reasons we got a bigger trailer was to accommodate the dogs.

    Oh my! I used to have two German Shepherds and one cat. That was enough hairballs for me.

    My husband told me the same thing for years. I love dogs and really wanted one or even two. We bought a house with a big yard and he kept saying no. Finally I sat him down and explained that for 17 years, he had his way and we had no pets. Now it was my turn, for the next 17 years. I got a female puppy and later, a male puppy. They are both wonderful, and she is now 15 and he is 4. There was another dog in between, who died of cancer, a massive male Akita (talk about hair all over!).

    Now hubby is a dog person, too. He walks them everyday, plays with them, talks to them. It's nice to watch. He said if he had known earlier how cute they are, he wouldn't have said no.

    Your dogs are so handsome, Retired Fire Chief! Your Oliver looks a lot like my Buddy.

    What a gorgeous bunch....I smiled when I read their names, I have a "human-child" named Elliott. I know what you mean about floors...we have 2 dogs, 2 cats and 2 budgies who mainly live inside. Love my hardwood floors, leather furniture and my Dyson. It's fur central here...no matter how much we keep up with the grooming.

And after raising them from seven weeks old to over a year how could I not take them back when they are career changed. I am also a cat lover, have 4, and love my 6 horses and 2 mini donkeys. As a matter of fact, I can't think of an animal I couldn't love.
    Your worse than me, we have a horse, a golden, and 25+ Rat Terriers and a siamese cat. Lost the other Siamese cat and old Golden this summer. Your doing the right thing and I know they adore you, hair and all. Girl after my own heart.

    Had to share my kids again

    I loved all the comments about my dogs, oops kids. Yes they are a lot of trouble and expense but the love the give is priceless. Earthwalker I also have a dyson but I have one better, a central vac. The motor is in the garage so it is pretty quite in the house when I run it. And the dyson blows air that tends to blow my hairballs around. And Decky, I hope you saw the funny comment Carol Wilson said - "trade in your husband"! I giggled out loud. You need to get together with Cricket_is cute's husband, she turned him around and now he too is a dog lover. So, especially for brunswickgirl who can't get her's to sit still I must show you the picture we used for our Christmas card last year.

    They are so cute. My Husband use to say no dogs in the house. When I decided to get a dog, I told him he could leave but the dog was staying. He may complain but he usually ends up liking them as much as I do. He never had a dog growing up.
    We have been married coming up on 52 years. He is not going anywhere, just wants to be bossy every so often.
    It doesn't work.
