First off i would like to simply state how much i adore boxers and after coveting them for years while i worked at a kennels, i finally found myself in a situation where i could get my own. Jeeves, my dark brindle is now just over a year and a half old now and a real cuddle monster. He loves to curl up and doze with me on the sofa or play outside, rarely seeming to leave my side unless he is basking in the garden.
Anyway my husband has been mulling over getting a second boxer to help keep Jeeves company while we work (i am only part time regardless) and because he has also fallen madly in love with the breed, particularly some of the white ones. However part of me is concerned that a second dog would lessen my bond with Jeeves, although the social situation with another boxer would no doubt do him the world of good.
I guess i'm just curious what experiences other people have had when introducing a second dog or boxer into their home. Does the 'puppy love' fade or are two dogs simply twice the loving?
Rest assured it is not a decision i intend to take likely as Jeeves is a real mama's boy.
