    A Second Pap

    Well, Gizmo will be a year old on March 14. He is still very puppy-ish in many ways (interactions w/ other dogs, playing w/ me and my husband, etc) and I was just wondering when is the best time to add a second papillon? I really think Gizmo would love a live-in playmate b/c he loves to play with other dogs, big and small, and we are smitten with this breed. I don't want to wait til Mo gets too old (whatever age that may be) but I don't want to introduce another dog too early either. Any advice?

    Now is as good a time as any!!! I bet Gizmo would love company. Maybe you could start with a young dog, but something 16 weeks or something?? Good luck and keep us all posted!!! This is going to be fun!!

    I've always had multiples at one time (not obtained at the same time)....



    I'm already entertaining the thought of another one myself (but not just yet - B is still a baby!).

    Agreed, now is a good time. I've been told between 12-18 months.

    I think that's an awesome idea!

    He can help the new puppy learn how to behave...and misbehave

    Kicks, that's what I'm worried about! He can be such a sweetheart, turn around and be the biggest stinker!
