Lord, what I wouldn't give for a child who wanted a giraffe.

Little kid hearts are tough, go ahead and break.

A neighbor visited with a Chihuahua for a few hours last weekend and our boy cried for like half an hour straight when it was time for it to go home. Since then, he talks about Chihuahuas every day and (worst of all) my fiancé thinks it would be a good idea.

I am so not down for a Chihuahua. I am not a Chihuahua person. Never in my 30 years thought of owning one. Hell no.

how would you feel about another, more awesome, canine? maybe there's a compromise

at my house there is unanimous agreement you should get the chihuahua, the crying got to us.

i really wanted one when i was a kid and my parents were like "FUCK NAW," ultimately of course i am better off for this since i did not grow up to be someone who feels positively about chihuahuas - be strong dude, you'll be doing the kid a favor

What funky dudes; I'm voting for them. (cankles), Saturday, 25 April 2009 13:53 (twelve years ago) link
