Are they both yours, Nick ?
it's just that litter sisters can give you some problems later on. If they're both yours, I suggest that you enrol them in dog training/behavior classes before they get too old (right away !)

They're very affectionate and playful but spend most of the time fighting over toys. The only other problem so far is their tendency to chew everything and need to be housetrained. When they've had all their injections (one today and another next week) we're going to take them to obedience classes

I'll assume they're about tweve weeks old then. that's a good time to start training.
 
There are loads of doggy forums on the net, Nick. it's a good idea to join one which is related to your breed and has some connecetion with the Kennel club.
No matter how much you already know about dogs, these sites are full of knowledgable breeders including vets and they'll offer you all the advice you need...for free...

Lily seems to be better behaved and easier to train than Alice. She's learned to take herself outside and responds when called. However, she bites a lot more than her sister

Beer is actually a good natural mosquito repellant for dogs. In fact it's a good natural mosquito repellant in general. Just be careful not to give her too much at this age, she might become an alcoholic like my Irish Wolfhound Cool

Here's a recent photo of Lily. She's very similar to Emma: her nose is already turning pink and she has the same big dark eyes and facial expressions. She's the more affectionate of the two as she follows me everywhere and loves attention. Her favorite toys are tennis balls and her favorite food is raw carrot

Oh, they are so cute....!
I have 2 girls myself, but they are not sisters, I picked one from a shelter and the other a guy was giving away; mine are both mixed, one is Dalmatian/Blue Heeler, and the other Australian Shepherd/Pitbul/Shar Pei. I got them when they were couple of months old, now they are like 6 years and some months; but still have puppy faces, to me at least.

Sure, Nick, here they are:
They are relatively small - they were the runts in their respective families, that's why they ended up not wanted /I had seen their bothers and sisters too/. The black and white one is Choochoo, the mix of Blue Heeler and Dalmation, the brown one is Cat, the mix of Pitbul, Shar Pei and Australian Shepherd.

Choochoo is the goof - she runs very fast, like a little horse, and jumps like a kangaroo, almost twice her size form the ground. Unfortunately she has a benign growth of her right shoulder, which she had 2 surgeries from, but it appeared again and this time the whole leg has to be removed, I was told, because it is very deep and wide. I'm trying to postpone it some, because it's so heartbreaking to see the most active dog I had ever had with 3 legs. I'm afraid she will start hating me after that, since all she will see is that I brought her to a vet and now she doesn't have a leg. She likes to roll in all kinds of nasty stuff, so I have to give her a bath quite often - in fact, I just had to do that half an hour age.

Cat is the family protector and hunter - she catches snakes, chipmunks, squirrels, mice, even a rabbit once - then she tenderizes them by beating on the stones, and leaves them in the sun, from time to time going and beating them again, until they are ripe enough for her to eat; drags bones from the forest and chases coyotes from the property. She may be small, but she is fierce. She is the only dog I know of who throws sticks in the air herself and catches them - so she doesn't need  humans around to play "catch" and have a good time.

They both like to chomp on huckleberries strait from the bushes, and Cat eats old rotten wood from time to time - I have no idea what she gets out of it, but she likes to get a stick, and eat it just like ice-cream on a stick. So, here they are - my girls.

They're beautiful. I don't think she'll hate you if you take her to the vet (but may be scared of going back there). She must be aware that leg is causing her pain. Emma had several operations in the 12 years she was with me but remained loving and affectionate til the end

Thanks, Nick! I hope you are right...last time I took her there for the shoulder to be examined the vet said that we can wait some time, as she doesn't limp yet; but she rotates around the shoulder and bends a little over it when it runs,  I can see how she moves the leg around the growth; so he said that eventually it has to be done. I prefer we do in during the winter, so she has more incentive to stay in while the wound is healing.

She'll be OK Don. A three-legged dog can be as active as one with four legs. After an accident at the age of 10 Emma's back legs were paralysed but she learned to walk again by using different muscles and attending hydrotherapy sessions

great dogs and good photo!! I would love to take Boomer to the snow.

Tomorrow I take Boomer on a hike, possibly to the Chirichahua Mtns. But, with the afternoon monsoon thunder storms I will have to get there early- 2 hour drive to the trail by car. These monsoon thunder storms can be mean and wicked and I don't want to get caught in one.

Thanks, eagrlecap! I live north of Spokane, WA, in the mountains, so I have here more snow during the winter that I can possibly enjoy. The gilrs dig little paths through it, and run only in them.
Can you post a picture of Bloomer, so we see him?

They all have great eyes and to be a good cow dog they got to have good eyes.
 
As for a three leg....one of the best cow dogs I ever seen was missing her back left after getting into fence line. Infection got it.
 
But the dog lived for nine more years and ran calves into a pen with nary a prob... had three-four litters and went to sleep at my grandpa's feet one day, out back in the shed, and never work up.
 
Only time I ever saw him shed a tear over an animal.
 
In that business she earned her keep and more.

Here are my pups having fun on the beach. If they were human in a past life Lily was definitely a toddler. She's greedy, hyperactive but also very eager to please. Alice is more like a teenage girl: besides her love of booze she only responds to commands when she feels like it and doesn't care if people tell her off

She is so cute! Has a very female look, like a real lady, and so clean - is she an outside or inside dog? My dogs run all day long and roll in the dirt, mud, or snow, so when they get inside for their social time I don't let them sit on the furniture, even though I clean their feet and belies. But my dogs are rascals, not ladies like Alice.

She sleeps indoors, but loves doing the same things as your girls: digging holes, fetching sticks, going for long walks, chewing flowerpots, eating horse manure, and biting her sister's ears. We only let the pups into the living room in the evening after wiping their feet with an old towel

Thanks. Yes, she is s lover - and one dog that really talks to you - when I talk to her she imitates my voice, responding in long grunts. She is a mix between a Blue Heeler and a Dalmatian, I picked her from a family who wanted to get rid of their pups, for like 10 bucks. Kitten is even more mixed - her mother was a Pitbul/Shar-Pei, father Australian Shepherd, at least this is what they told me in the dog pound I got her from. I like muttsSmile, /myself being an ultimate Balkan mutt - with Romanians, Greeks, Albanians, Bulgarian is my family tree/.

Alice might be clean and ladylike, but Lily is scruffy and rarely washes herself after walks. This morning she went swimming in the pond and came out covered in mud

Poor Alice hasn't been well these past couple of days. She hurt her eye and has an appointment with the vet tomorrow

Thanks Don. The vet found some sort of splinter or seed in her eye and has given her some eyedrops to get rid of it

Yuck! Kitten had several years ago a seed of grass getting into one of her years, and she develop a heavy infection, even lost her sight for while - but survived it with antibiotics; so those seeds can be very dangerous.
Tell Alice I wish her speedy recovery!Smile

She's much better now and is back to her mischievous self. She's ripped her bed to shreds, dug a big hole in the flowerbed and (with help from her sister) raided the bin for leftovers

Yup, this shows healthy dog spirit in healthy dog's bodyLOL
My Kitten does the same digging stuff, but I was told that is one pours water in which cayenne pepper has been boiled around the flowerbeds they dog's don't get it, I have to try that.

Alice isn't always ladylike. She sleeps with all four feet in the air and often snores

Moderation only....I still need Alice to scout the Llano...and to do that she has to be lean and mean.

Alice is the fierce one, but Lily's the fastest runner (though they've never caught any of the deer, rabbits or foxes they've chased). I wouldn't be surprised if one of the pups' distant ancestors was a greyhound as it would explain their lean build and long legs

Alice is becoming quite the hunter. This morning she caught and killed a rabbit

Well, I miss them awfully. Last I heard Choochoo is still having a bad leg /she broke a tendon and my husband don't want to get her for a surgery/, but got used to it...which makes me very angry. She shouldn't have to ger used to it, she have to get a surgery and have a good leg, but I can't get it through. Hence I'm giving up on males.

Kitten is fine.

Lily's definitely got her father's working dog genes. When i brought in my shotgun for cleaning, she pricked up her ears and looked very interested in it. I think she's got potential as a gundog (though my own shooting skills need to improve a lot before i try wildfowling or game shooting)

Just got a new puppy today, and the older dog is not happy. My son and I are camping out with the menace while he is crated to try and stop anxiety whining, but oh-my-god.....have I forgotten how high-pitched a puppies whine is.

Don't forget to give the older dog lots of attention too. He's probably worried the pup will challenge his dominant position. What breed is the pup?

The older one is a Tibetan spaniel, and the pup is a English springer-spaniel/ Australian shepard mix.
 
The dominance displays have already taken place and were quite interesting. Seeing as how the Tibetan is 15 lbs and the pup is already 11 lbs at 8 weeks, it probably wil get even more interesting in the future.
