    Talking 5 hours left and counting!!....

    We go pick up our little girl tonight! Can't wait to see what big brother Lucky Day thinks of his new sister. I'll post pics soon! One question though, should they have their own toys or do they share??

    oooh how lovely id love another ,think i will wait till rubys about 1 yr or so. dont know about the toys but would think as long as theres plenty of them they would be happy to share?? maybe they will come to each have their own favourites but they dont seem a breed that would be possesive

    I have a 10 week old and a 14 month old...boy Blenheim boys. I bought seperate toys for Porthos as D'Artagnan had only had his toys for 6 weeks (we bought him in January)...so I didn't want to cause problems. They pretty much play with eachothers but D'Artagnan does like his chewed up stuffed elephant and so does Porthos, so sometimes there are meaningful, soulful looks from D'Artagnan if Porthos runs past dragging the elephant.

    My dogs always have their own toys BUT for the most part they share. Some may disagree but I watch and see how they are doing. If they are sharing and no one is agitated or hogging all the toys then I just let them sort it out among themselves. However, if it looks like one is starting to be selfish or obsessed such that I fear we might end up with toy aggression than I intervene. The key is to teach all of your dogs whether you think they need it or not the Leave It and Drop It commands. You can control almost anything if you have those down pat plus a reasonable recall (Come).

    Best of luck with you new puppy.
