No dog unless it's this one

On the way home from the gym:
Mom: Oh Beren look at those cute little doggies! They have sweaters on.
Beren: Awwwww . . .they are cuties. Oh, don't even talk about it. I want a dog so bad I can't take it!
Mom: We're not getting a dog until you are old enough to help take care of it in a serious way and I don't mean just feeding it. Dogs have to be bathed and taken for walks and you have to pick up their poop . . .
Beren: Ew! No way! That's your job. I'm not going anywhere near poop.
Mom: And that is why we're not ready to have a dog.


  1. ...and you often wonder how so much "stuff" comes out of one animal!
    Enjoy the clean yard, and visit someone elses dog!

  2. You wont ever be sorry you didnt get one, but you may: regret it
    curse it, and just over all be annoyed you fell into the wanting a dog kind of trap!

  3. You guys are ally really lame. I just want you to know that.

  4. UGH! I have this conversation at least 3 times a week with my kiddos. I'm not getting a dog until they are genetically engineered to stay adorable little puppies, and they don't poo or pee on anything, and I don't have to walk them even when it's sub-zero out, and they don't shed, or chew/slobber on anything, and their food doesn't stink like barf. Ugh!

  5. Have you thought a puppy might not be your only option... maybe a house trained something that won't chew up your shoes? I must say that my dog was my best friend when I was Beren's age. But I don't have the guts to get my kids a dog.... just more poop to deal with hahaha!
