Poll: Are we crazy?

We are thinking of getting a puppy. We've been talking about this for awhile, since Sean's dog, Shadow is getting on in her years (she's 10). We know we would get another dog when there's no more Shadow... (although she is in decent health right now). And we've thought about different breeds and done some research- deciding a Bernese Mountain Dog is one of the top contenders. And NOW our local Humane Society has a new litter of 6 Bernese Mountain Dog pups. They are mixed and look like they may be mixed with lab (the pics are labernese). It's a long story about how I ended up at the Humane Society and stumbled upon them, but the question at hand now is.... do we get one??
Two dogs... a puppy... the house... a wedding....
are we crazy for even considering it?

Yes, you are crazy, but also, yes, it will be worth it! We got a puppy a couple of months ago, and though she is lots of work (and our two cats still haven't fully adjusted), she is worth every minute!

Sometimes crazy ideas are right. Just make sure you agree and that you are both willing to make a 12 or more year commitment. Sometimes things just happen to fall into place. You could wait 20 years for the Humane Society to have another litter of these puppies. If you have a good home for one of these puppies and really want one, then you can find a way to plan around a wedding if you want.

I think you should get two puppies and send one to me. :)
