Cody has asked for nearly a year (hasn't been home a whole year, yet, but close enough) for a puppy. I have repeatedly told him no. My main reasoning is that I do not want a dog unless we are in a forever home, as in he gets out of the Army.
You all remember Addy's thoughts on a dog, and now all three of the kiddos are asking for a REAL puppy.
Yesterday, Cody told me he would quit chewing nasty tobaccy for good if we could get a dog. He has been doing this nasty habit on and off for a good 10 years. He will quit for a year or more and then go back. He rarely does it around me and definitely not in front of the kids because it's disgusting and cancer ridden.
You know where I went this afternoon all by myself?
The animal shelter.
I never win, never!
