We've got a dog!
Candy, that's the name of our gold-yellow two months old mixed breed Labrador/Japanese spitch.
Why did we agree to finally buy a dog?
Well, after two break-in attempts in our house, I guess, we really have to do something, right?
The best bodyguard would still be a dog!
IC wouldnt want to know anything about buying a dog. She simply refuses to even talk about it.
MC is very enthusiastic; and in fact, has agreed to take care of the dog. From waking up early for a walk; until before bedtime activities. She has proved, with the birds, that she could already take a responsibility seriously; so we agreed.
But... IC should also agree.
We drove to the pet store. IC wont go; and when she did, was very reluctant. In fact, arriving at the pet store; she decided, nothing looks good. So she point blank refused to even look around. Actually, I had to carry her because she's so afraid of the different pets around her.
Meanwhile, MC cant contain her excitement. She found one; and she wont let go.
Trying to get IC to be a part of the decision-making was hard. Until we talked about the name of the dog.
Anyway, because we wanted to feel secure at home; we got Candy.
And because we got Candy, IC, who used to hate dogs; seems to be changing her mind. She has started petting Candy.
As for MC, she's taken her responsibility to heart. Waking up at 6 am, because she heard the dog barking and as she said 'it might be hungry!'.
I am glad to have Candy. For our security and for the kids to learn to be more responsible.
