This is the first time I've posted but I have been reading advice from this Forum ever since our wonderful pup walked into our lives! We have a good natured female Golden who is essentially a member of our family. She doesn't spend much time with other dogs, but absolutely loves people and is good with both adults and children. She's a typical velcro dog, following me from room to room, but doesn't have a problem entertaining herself (mostly sleeping I believe) when we are not around. We would like to get a second pup this summer or fall, and I was wondering if anyone here would share their experiences and thoughts on bringing a second dog into the house. I am afraid to rock the boat but we are so happy with one dog, that I am thinking that two can only be better! General thoughts welcome, and any specific comments on male vs female, and best age to introduce a new puppy to the house (she is 2.5 years now). Thanks!
