As cute and fluffy as dogs are, taking care of them requires time, money, and attention. So if you really want a dog, but you’re living at your parents’ house, then you’ll have to run it by them first… and that process is not so easy.
Trying to convince your parents to let you have a pet at the house is not always easy… especially when they start to give you a million reasons as to why they won’t allow it.
The first thing your parents probably said was “los perros traen toda tierra y mugre de la calle.”
The last thing they want in their impeccable plastic-covered couches is a stinky dog covered in germs and their pet fleas.
The next thing they point out is that dogs shed too much.
When has a little fur ever hurt someone?
But if they don’t complain to you about the shedding and the odor, then they’ll make a fuss about how the dog will bark all night long and disturb their sleep.
But hearing the dog bark when there’s intruders would be a good thing, right?
Then they start insulting you like when they say, “You know dogs shit everywhere right? Are you going to pick up all of their mess? You can’t even keep your own room clean.”
Ouch. It’s almost as if asking your parents for a dog actually means you’re asking to be insulted, but it doesn’t stop there.
Next up: “So who’s going to feed the dog? Ni tienes trabajo. Aquí estás en la casa de huevon. With what money are you even going to buy the food, huh?”
Burn after burn… 😬
But after countless times of begging your parents to pleeeeease let you have a dog…
For every birthday and every Christmas, this was the only thing you would ask for.
And after trying to convince them time and time again, that dogs are the best pets in the world…
How can you not like dogs?!
Eventually, they give in. And say, YES.
And the funny thing is… even though your parents were the ones that were completely against the idea of having a dog in the first place, at the end of the day, they end up loving the dog way more than they love you.
Your parents will deny that they’re deeply in love with your new dog, but you know for sure that they’ve found their new BFF.
