For the past several weeks my wifes friend has been asking us if we’d like one of the puppies her dog had. I’m not a dog person, and considering we just landscaped our backyard, I work 6 days a week often, and my wife is about to start back in grad school, I feel like our household is not a good fit for a puppy (not to mention these puppies’ parents are the size of monster trucks.
I politely explained this to my wife’s friend, but she was very persistent, trying to wear me down. Last friday she even brought the puppy to our house, trying to get my wife to talk me into keeping it. I was at work, but told my wife to please have her friend come get the dog before I came home. When I got home, there was no dog, and asked my wife if her friend took it back. She said yes, and dropped it off at a shelter on the way home
Now I feel guilty…but this is exactly why I didnt want to see or interact with the puppy. I’m not a dog person, but I’m sentimental, and its easy for me to get attatched to people/animals.
