This is not a secret to anyone that knows me. My animal loving friends find it amusing when their pet snuggles up to me for attention or licks my face for attention as I stay still and awkward. Turns out Husband is an animal lover. His face lights up at the sight of just about any animal. He even got excited at the jellyfish at the Aquarium (my non-loving nature covers sea creatures too).
Husband desperately wanted a dog. He begged, pleaded, and attempted a persuasive lists of reasons to add a dog to our family. I did not find his reasons persuasive. I am a softy when it comes to him and gave in simply because I knew how happy it would make him. My lists of reasons not to get a dog seemed more logical.
- Daily work taking the dog out, walking it, and feeding it.
- Where will it stay when we go out of town?
- Extra unnecessary expenses for dog food, vet bills, boarding costs and the list goes on.
