We went to the Humane Society on Saturday and these two doggies were "bonded" and had to go as a set. This is TOTALLY and COMPLETELY out of character for me to bring home TWO dogs. We went looking for one but I couldn't leave without them. Meet Toffee and Shortcake!

They are adorable, I wouldn't have been able to resist those faces, either. Something similar happened to me - my husband told me to choose from the last two puppies of a litter and we ended up with both of them. They are my besties now! I'm so glad I chose them both. It's such a great thing that you didn't break their bond.

They’re adorable!

We have a pair from the same litter. DH couldn’t choose and brought home both.

Ah yes, the “bonded” ones will get you every time! That is how we got Gretchen and Zipper. Toffee and Short are precious!

Congrats! They are adorable.

When I was a teen my mom took my brother and I to choose a puppy out of the litter. End of the story we came home with the last two: a brother and sister. My brother and I were thrilled, my dad a bit surprised
