    If one of you is home as you said you work diferent shifts, that is a plus. Are you financially ok to care for them?? (vet bill for EB can run pretty high). I would say , do it!!!!

    I have 2 EB puppies. They are great companions. They do quite well learning together. I think it is easier to train 2 puppies at once, than to have to go through everything twice. Luckily for us one favors me and the other favors my husband.

    Those of you who took on two puppies at once, I am forever in awe of how brave you are! Mine are a year apart - which has worked really well for us. The older one (Bea) has taught the puppy (Bo) a great deal. Because I had the entire first year to focus on Bea, she really was a model big sister for Bo.

    I did the same thing as @Vicaroo1000 and waited until Chelsea was 1 to get her a baby brother, Chuy. Although I don't know if I would call her a model big sister... unless teaching the puppy her lazy trick of putting her front paws on the couch and looking at me to lift her and stealing all the toys and hoarding them on a couch is has trouble getting up on is model behavior. Lol she is doing really great with him besides that. Both are in training which is hard and for us because it is just more things to add to our busy schedules.

    I would suggest having one for awhile before taking on a second. At a young age they do great with the addition and have a great time playing. I couldn't imagine having 2 to house train at the same time. But this has been real hard with my second so maybe it wouldn't be that bad.
    Please excuse any spelling or grammatical errors... I probably have both bulldogs laying on me or fighting for attention...

    @wautersa - had it been the reverse - Bo first, Bea second - it would have been a nightmare! hahahahahaha Bo is a wild thing!
