Report Two dog or not two dog? in General Border Collie Discussion Posted March 29, 2008 Evidently, I got really lucky when I got Nick. I had him flown across the country, sight unseen, and he hit it right off with my somewhat-snarky, very alpha, I-like-being-an-only-child mutt. Of course, Nick is perfectly happy in his role as annoying younger brother, and having him around actually got the mutt to start playing more. At first, I really did not like having two dogs. I felt like I was always neglecting one, it made it even more crowded in the tiny house... Now, 15 months later, I love it! I don't think I'll ever go back to having just one. It's so much fun watching the dogs have the zoomies outside. They wrestle with each other in a way only two dogs can. Yeah, you can get those things at the dog park, but then you miss the cute moments like when both dogs squash into one crate, or when they lay there snerfling each others' eyes in front of the fire. The one thing that has gotten much tougher with two dogs is finding care for them when I travel. Despite my worries, it's actually the BC who is the easy one, but still, far fewer people are willing to look after multiple dogs than just one.
