Just to put things straight i never said we were collecting pups in three and a half weeks i said we were picking them (choosing our pups!!) These are not our first dogs and as for two from the same litter we have two sets of friends who have done this and they would not do it any other way. We dont bring our pups home till second week in August making them nine weeks old. Its each to there own ideas and views. This is not something as a family we have rushed into we have put a great deal of thought into having two pups and we cant wait!!
