After thinking about it and discussing it... We found a dog we are adopting.

And she has a brother. We couldn't separate them.

So Penny and Sheldon are coming home with us

6 month old shepherd mix.

penny is looking sideways.

Oh and Josie, our cat, is pretty darn pissed.

Since Steve passed we've been really feeling the gap.

Of course dh dangled chickens in front of me he said he wouldn't object to my getting three chickens if he could get a dog.

I can't believe we are turning in to one of those crazy animal families

I almost did not open this thread because I was afraid that it would be a sad thread. Instead it gave me reason to smile.

It is great that you are adopting both and they don't have to be separated. I know that they are going to bring your family lots of love and many rewards through the years. Bless you for getting both. Don't forget to come back and post a photo once they get home.

My Dachshund girls are littermates. They really enjoy being together.

Having 2 dogs takes some weight off of the people. The dogs entertain each other.

Congratulations to your family!! That is wonderful that you were able to bring the siblings into your home. Can't wait to see pictures!

One reason we have Hans (left in siggy) and Gretchen (right in siggy) is because the rescue group said they wanted to adopt them together but were willing to split them up. I looked at those two dogs (not litter mates but had always been together) all curled up together in a carrier and I knew they could NOT be split so I HAD to bring them home. They are two special family members!!

CUTIES! Hope they have found a forever home with dedicated people. Most people can't handle the high energy or have the patience for sibling dogs.

Ours are 9 this year and never calmed down

They will bring you a lot of love, though!
