I definitely would not suggest it. Especially from the same litter... there could be some sibling rivalry later on.
I have a 10.5 month old and a 16 week old. Let me tell you, IT IS WORK. Hard, hard work. The only reason we took this on is because my husband works from home and I'm a housewife... so we are both home all day. The breeder we chose would not be having another litter for a long while, when we'd likely be trying for children, so we decided to take on having two pups at once since we're in a good situation for it. Each of us has a pup with us at all time. Athena and Gotham only get to play together in the morning until Travis goes to work (the office, LOL) at 11am, and at night, after he gets off work at 8pm. It is extremely hard work, and I can't even imagine having two Gotham's age.
Believe me... after about a week of having your new pup, you won't even know what you were thinking! There are a ton of benefits to waiting... there are a ton of benefits AND negatives if you try to get two pups at once. I wouldn't take a chance, for your sake, and for the pups' sakes.
Hope this helps!
