"Daddy wouldn’t buy me a bow-wow!"

(In case you don’t know, that’s the title of a song written in the late 1800’s which now features in a lot of “sing-a-longs”. So there you go!)

The kids have been wanting a puppy for a while.

The kids won’t be getting a puppy.

The kids keep asking.

We say “No.”.

They ask again.

We say “No!”.

They forget about it for a while.

Then one of them remembers and then they all ask again.

We say… “No!”.

This morning it looked like they’d given up asking and decided to use their initiative.

Their initiative and their 11 month old baby brother.

Their 11 month old baby brother who underwent an intensive course of learning to pant like a puppy and follow on command.

Now Eddie and Sid are running around the living room, calling “Come on, Pup!” while Oliver is crawling behind them frantically trying to keep up, all the while panting with his little pink tongue hanging out.

He’s the cutest little pup I’ve ever seen.

And doesn’t poop on the floor.

(Unless I’ve left his nappy off.)

  1. Thank god it's not just my little one who does that!!! He's almost 3 now and still does it. lol. And we have a dog. He just likes to pretend. Some days he's a cat too. Such an imagination!

  2. Too Funny.
    Leave it to the little ones to get what they want one way or another.

    Hope you had a great Mother's Day


  3. STAY STRONG!! After years of saying "no" to a new puppy, we finally gave in… and ended up regretting it!!! We just recently had to give ours to a new family- it was a nightmare!!! I agree, "kid puppies" are much better 😉

  4. when I was a little girl, I always gather all the homeless cats and dogs and brought them in my house, cos I loved them so much!:) My parents were furious:)
