Mine were given a coke and a puppy last time I left them! It was only for a few hours but it didn't matter the dog was theirs to keep. Tell me how do you tell your kids and husband no more pets.
We now have another dog, a 4 month old mix named Butter Cup. She is very cute, but not completely potty trained. Funny thing Taffy (our other dog) was smitten from the very first time she seen Butter and now will not leave her side, she loves having a play mate.
