Can you see the subliminal message?
I found this photo from a couple of years ago while I was browsing through my photos. Can you see the word DOG in the grass? My son mowed it to show me how much he wanted a dog! He had just completed a power point presentation on which dogs were the best pets...hoping to convince me! Guess what? We still don't have one. I came a little closer to considering after his sweet gestures, but I didn't cave.
I did tell them that if they found an inexpensive one that didn't shed, wouldn't get sick or need vet visits, could take care of itself while we were away, stayed a cute little golden retriever puppy that didn't chew on things, didn't need to be fed or trained, or didn't poop or pee, then I would jump at the chance. So for now... they will just have to continue to pretend that their brother is their pet dog, and I will have to continue to remain the mean mom who won't let her kids have a dog. Some things will never change. ;(
