The lovefest between me and the hounds continues unabated and has left me thinking about the puppies quite a bit. Mr. CC and I had just moved in together and were contemplating getting a puppy. I always knew I wanted more than one dog, I just wasn’t sure if I wanted to get them at the same time or stagger them – that is, get one, let him/her grow up and then get another. So, I did what I usually do whenever I am caught in a dilemna – go into research mode. I talked/emailed dog trainers, consulted the interwebs, and talked to people with dogs.
