        • Tell him this would be a great way to bond with your daughter when they take the puppy for walks. If that fails, put your husband in the doghouse   :)

        • I would not have been allowed to bring the responsibility of an animal into my parent’s home while I was underage....and this is why:  As the parents of the teen, you are ultimately responsible for the care and keep of that animal for the next 15 years or so. I have to take the tough love road here and say that if you and your husband are on the same page with it, OK. If not, your teen should not be allowed to make decisions of this magnitude on his/her own within your family structure.

        • Wow...I’m really sorry but I totally agree with Jenni.  It’s not your daughter’s place to make decisions like that in your house.  You should have been asked first and been able to have made the decision.  I know the puppy is cute and it’s hard to say no to your daughter, but I think your husband should have the final say as to whether the puppy stays or not.

        • I agree with Jenni but I can’t resist that puppy. And, the pup didn’t ask to be brought into the house so it’s a tough position to be in. Someone has to love it and take care of it.

          I don’t how he feels about animals in general but I’m a sucker for them. Unfortunately, when I married my husband I discovered later that he and I are not on the same page with pets. It’s been a real difficult thing for both of us. Our cat is forever the topic of uncomfortable conversation. But, the cat stays. I can’t turn away an animal onced I’ve made a commitment. Now as for the husband, hmmm....

        • I know, I know girls.....  

          I don’t usually let many people into my world of hurt, but I just gave away my 2 pups this week...hopefully, to a wonderful new home....because of the life changes going on with me now. It’s been a week and I think it is just starting to sink in. I would never have thought that I would even consider such a thing, but I feel it is in their best interest. So, I am at the point where all the love and cuteness does not overshadow the larger responsibility.....I am wracked with guilt and I can only pray that they will be safe and loved.  

          Enough with that....as a college student I got a cat that I left with my mom when I graduated and carried on with life....just feel a teen cannot nor should not be responsible for a living creature for the next 15+ years.

          Cuteness does not equal = I am able to provide. Sorry to be the hard Arssssss again.... estatic
