Micah Wants a Dog

Micah really wants a dog. I DO NOT. NOT AT ALL.

Yesterday, we were driving on center street and passed the pet store. Micah promptly shouted, "Mom! Let's go there. I want a dog!" I told him that dog's are a lot of responsibility and someone has to take care of them. He calmly told me that he would be glad to do that. I said, "What would you do if the dog went poopie on the grass?" His reply? "I would just scoop it up with the shovel and put it in the mud."

Unfortunately, he's still not getting a dog. :)

You have to give him some credit for knowing the right answer though. Most kids don't figure it out until they are 10 or so. Micah is just ahead of the learning curve!

We don't have a dog, but if Micah likes cats at all, he's more than welcome to come see ours. Nathan didn't grow up with pets, but now that we have one he's occasionally tempted to bring another one home. (They're just so cute.) To stop himself from getting another one, he reminds himself of the hard work it is to have a pet. It's seriously like having another child. I feel like Isabelle already has another sibling because of our cat. They fight over toys, attention, etc. We love our kitty, but it's definitely hard work.

We have a dog now, so when Micah wants to play with a dog you just let us know! :) Definitely a lot of work... that's why this dog is "Joe's dog".

I don't want a dog. Ever.

I don't want to have to bathe it.

I don't want to have to clean up after it.

I don't want to have to walk it.

Yes, they're adorable, but they're a ton of work. Maybe we'll just come visit yours. :)

I feel the same way about dogs, and Alex feels the same way as Micah - he told me the other way that he's going to get a dog when he's 12. We'll see. :)
