Default Adding a 2nd dog/puppy Qs

(Because Cleo, the old lady miniature poodle 'family dog', does not count as a dog).

So, what with adding zepuppeh to the mix this late August/early September, this is the first time we'll actually have two dogs, or dogs that interact anyway (see above fine print). Wesley is nuts about most all other dogs, and especially loves puppies, and does not mind new dogs coming into his house at all, so that's not a problem I don't think (you never know). But I worry that he'll be too rambunctious for a 7-8 week old puppy and be overwhelming when said baby BC first gets home, did you guys keep them apart until the puppy was not as breakable? How did you go about introductions/getting them used to being with each other? How old should puppy be before they can be left alone together? Should I be concerned about the puppy forming attachments with dogs over people? *insert other paranoid questions here*?

Will Wesley develop a complex from not being the baby anymore?

Ahhhhh, this is the one area of puppydom I am actually dorking out about. First-time-dog-owneritis, what can I say.
I JUST WANT THEM TO FALL IN LOVE (but not too much lol), and the puppy to not break a leg/get the shiz scared out of it thanks to Marmalade Moonpie, king of puppy squishing. Cleo and Wesley were just kind of thrown together, and that turned out great; As in she snarks at him every time he walks past. So basically tell me all your soothing stories about adding a puppy and it all turning out fine and dandy, thank you.

And yes, I know this thread is useless without pictures, but you must wait.
