Whoa, Momma!

Dog debate continues: Just do it?



Cutepuppy_3 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.
