It is very tempting..still is. My minimum is 2 dogs..but ever since I started having 3 I liked it because two can play together, while one has a break. Three is a little harder doing stuff with but then again if I have to take one (like to work) two are left behind so they arent lonely.

Also, I have met these dogs at work (i am a vet tech) and they have been nothing but awesome dogs. We usually see the worst come out in a dog and to me if they are great there they must be reallly good at home. I did reading up on them and talking to the owner of them and said they arent the really crazy hyper ones, they like to play and run (and hunt) but they do calm down in the house. They are pets foremost. He said they are very smart dogs, they pick on commands very easily. His wife taught the mom how to fetch a slipper in one session. He said I could come over to their house and meet them in their own enviroment. Which i may do.,just to have an excuse to go see the pups and their him!!

They are good dogs. My friends was hunting pheasants at five months like a pro. I've had three dogs for basically 12 years now (had an unfortunate break twice for about a month each). I really don't want to do it again. A lot more work. Although my dog who was the third is a difficult dog to deal with (he is so high maintenance). If you got three good ones it wouldn't be bad but there are no guarantees of course.
