Default Top ten reasons to not get a second cockapoo

1. More room in the bed
2. Slow dancing with two cockapoos, while possible, might be tricky?
3..................

that's all I can muster, can anybody think of another?

They actually tend to snuggle each other making lots of room in bed.
Tricky is fun. It makes life interesting.
It is amazingly fun watching them play.
They keep each other company when you are busy.
You have a pair of poo slippers instead of just one.

I could go on....

Someone here wants a second but I don't

My reasons are:
1) My stress levels would go up.
2) I love Molly and can't share that love!
3) I'm getting older and my moods are up and down
4) I only have 2 hands and it's hard enough to control 1 poo.
5) Too many toys on the floor so major slipping hazzard for the humans
6) Salon visits would cost a fortune!
7) Laryngitis from saying "no" "off" "leave it" etc.......
8) Hard enough to brush one can't imagine having to do two


There are more but I can't think right now

1 poo slipper is enough for me ha! She is always on my feet it covers them both so if I had 2 of them my feet would go numb

Ok...
Double vet bills, food bills,poop pick up and grooming bills.
Twice as much hair brushing, tooth brushing and nail cutting.
If you don't see something happen, you don't know who to blame (well some people don't )

Of course to me it is all a wash because it is twice as much love!!! Oops not helping ...
to be honest, going form one to two was the best thing I have ever done. I don't and won't ever regret it.

Ok, here are my honest answers:

1. Food cost
2. Insurance cost
3. Flea/worm treatment costs
4. Inoculations/spay/neuter costs
5. Miscellaneous other vet visits
6. Toys, leads, clothing, bed/crate costs
7. Lead walking harder
8. One dog teaching the other bad habits
9. Being jealous of each other or not getting on
10. Double grooming and training

Would any of these, in triple, stop me getting another? Not on your nelly!

I would love another one way in the future. Probably like 4-5 years.... But that time Piper will be a "real" dog and fully grown and with all her manners... I can't think of having another one anytime soon.

Like others on here, there is double the cost and double the trouble... As least if you space them out it doesn't seem as bad... And by then I will have had more "poo" experience then I do know.

Ok, I finally have a reasonable solution. A massive human partner swap! I move in with Renees partner, she gets mine in return, the wannahavethrees all move in together, the happywithones get each other. Everybody happy, everybody wins! It might be tricky working out dog custody and visitation agreements, especially on an international basis, but it is worth a try!
