I always had a dog growing up, and often I feel bad about not having one now. I want my kids to know that loyal canine companionship.
But I don’t want to vacuum pet hair.
My kids periodically beg and plead and promise to walk, feed, brush, scoop etc. They are sure that having a dog would be the BEST THING EVER. Kind of like this:
A dog would prevent them from ever feeling lonely, or sad…
And who could ever be bored, as long as they have a pet dog to amuse them?
Only a pet dog would scratch that itch…
There’s no end to the games they could play together.
And imagine the surprise, if I ever caved to their request?
Before you know it, we’d be THAT family.
Who needs friends why you have a dog, right?
I dedicate this post to Francois, the cutest pug in the world, who belongs to my niece Nicole. If Hello Kitty (our cat) didn’t hate dogs so much, I’d kidnap Francois.
