Two years ago, at the pet event, my mom had been upset with me for preventing a dog from getting adopted about 3 times. I responded with, “well then, I’ll adopt him.” She laughed at that idea, but I was serious. All day I asked her if I could adopt the dog, and she kept saying no. Hoping she would just give up and say yes I persisted in asking about the dog and showed her a picture, she responded with “go ask your father.”
That night when I got home I asked my dad if I could adopt the dog and his response was the same – “absolutely not”. With that answer I said, “Okay, but would you like to see a picture of him?” He said yes, and when I showed him the picture he looked at it for about 6 or 7 seconds without saying anything and then all the sudden he sighed and said,
“Just go get the dog.” And that’s how I got Jett, aka “Puppo”. - Cody
