I am really bad at saying no sometimes….Free puppies is one of the hardest times for me to hold the line and say no.
How does a mom say no to this….
Or worse yet….say no to this?!?!
Look at that cute little puppy…look at that face on my begging daughter.
When we came back down the hill from visiting the Rendezvous event there was a man and lady with four puppies for free. All of the puppies came from the same litter of nine. Each of the puppies was so different. They were a cross between Rottweiler, Collie and Black Lab. One looked very Rottweiler, one a long haired completely black collie type, one the tan puppy in the first photo and the one in the second photo which was the cutest in my opinion. It looked like a black lab but had a white patch on it’s chest and all four paws were white.
Kelli was holding the black one then put it down so we could go. The puppy started whimpering. Then Kalissa started saying…”see mom, the puppy wants us.” Then she went back to hold it.
I admit…I can’t say no. I know that no is the right answer but I just can’t say it. So what do I say….”You can have one if Dad says yes…” The rational part of me is begging my hubby to say no. The compassionate part of me is saying oh say yes….
So Kalissa calls my hubby and says….”Dad? Mom says we can get a puppy if you say yes. Can we? Can we get a puppy?”
Dad hasn’t seen the puppies…Dad hasn’t seen that face…so what does he say….NO! We don’t need another dog!
Part of me was thankful he said no…Part of me was screaming WHY NOT?!?! I guess I’m still a kid at heart.
Today I hooked up with Dandelion House.
