The subject line pretty much sums it up. I work from home & make a nice salary. I also homeschool and keep a decent home. I have my chickens and an adult dog that is really well-mannered - very sweet. AND I WANT A PUPPY!!!! For me, for my DD, for my dog (who loves other dogs). Anyway, DH says "nope", like that's the end of the story. So annoying. And the whole thing becomes aweful, cuz a friend of a friend wants to give me a lab puppy. How do I even bring up the topic? Anyone have experience forcing a pet on the unwilling?
