Double the Pet Hair, Double the Fun

So what does it really mean to raise two yellow Labradors Retrievers together at the same time? Well here's my list:

  • double the opportunity to capture the cutest puppy pictures ever
  • double the puppy potty training accidents
  • double the sweet puppy kisses
  • double the walks during adolescence as each one was best walked separate
  • double the training time at home
  • double the joy greeting you at the door
  • double the Labrador hair "tumble weed" clumps collecting at the edges of the hard wood hallway, and everywhere else for that matter
  • double the warmth on a cold winter evening
  • double the food for the UPS man to deliver every month
  • double the poop to pick up
  • double the pull when you walk them together and they both catch the same sent
  • double the noise when a stranger comes to a door
  • double the bed size taking up valuable floor space for their beds in the kitchen, office, and bedroom
  • double the energy to burn, lucky they can tire each other out
  • double the security when you're home alone
  • double the leashes and any other equipment for that matter
  • double the laughs watching their silly little games
And last but not least ...
  • double the L O V E as only Labrador Retrievers can give!!!

You forgot double the vet bills, double the heart worm meds, double the kennel fees...Who am I kidding? DOUBLE is the only way to go when you are talking about retrievers. Cue the Double Mint commercial!
