I never realized just how different “three dogs” would be from “two dogs.”
When we started fostering, we knew we’d be in for an adjustment period when we doubled the number of four-legged critters in the house. It’d be more chaotic, there’d be more noise and more mess. We also knew it’d mean double the puppy love, double the snuggles and double the hilarity.
Now that we have three, the differences have been compounded. In addition to those things I mentioned above, walks and meal times have become way more involved. But for us, nothing can compare to the atmosphere of just plain FUN there is at Foster House right now.
The biggest and most apparent thing we’ve noticed is that now with three dogs, we have become a bone-afied (ha!) pack. We never get tired of watching them interact with each other. There’s a hierarchy. They snuggle together. They trust each other. Sometimes two will gang up on the third. Sometimes a third will referee if play gets too rough between the other two.
Most of all, they all have their own distinct and unique personalities.
We never intended on being a three-dog household. And once one of them gets adopted, we may not be again – at least not anytime soon. This pack came together purely by accident – but what a happy accident it is!
Yep, three dogs sure makes for a crazy household, and we know this won’t last forever – But for now, we’re lovin’ every minute of it.
