We have a cat. A BIG cat. A BIG, NASTY cat. She is mine. I love her but she doesn't love anyone, well, maybe me from time to time. Usually only for her long enough to like me then bite me but she sleeps with me. The kids try to love her but she wants no part of it and Hubby - he does not like her.
We sort of made an agreement years ago. My hubby always says he needs to have some time without a pet (I had Lola before I met him so she has always been with us). So, I said to the kids, when Lola dies we will wait 6 months and then we will get a dog. He doesn't agree but last week when a friend's mom was fostering a puppy and I jokingly said, "meet our new dog." He said, "we have an agreement." So I made sure people recognized his commitment to our agreement.
We can't wait until the cat is gone. We want a dog now. We need a dog now. Who doesn't want a dog?
How do we get dad/hubby on board? I brought the kids to our local pet shop and they played with the puppies Maya loves all dogs and Sam decided he wants a small dog, a Yorkie. Just like his mom.
Now to work on dad/hubby.
