Dog debate continues: Just do it?
While we here on Whoa, Momma! last week were hashing over one mother's wish to get her man and her kids to heel over their fervent wish to adopt a dog, (at least for now) our friends over at the Orlando Sentinel's Mothers at Work blog were giving readers five reason you SHOULD get a dog.
Writer Lisa Cianci acknowledges they are a lot of work, but her *just do it* manifesto points out the unconditional love, exercise, responsibility (and one I hadn't thought of), the convenient excuse they give you for getting out of unwanted social commitments.
I have a dog, but I still stand by my belief that it's a decision that has to made with a lot of thought beforehand. I have no doubt there's room in your heart, but answer these 5 questions first before considering if you room in your life for another creature to depend on you.
