"My best friend and her husband have been married 3 years and are talking about having a baby soon. I have 2 very active boys - 5 and 8. My boys are awesome! Love them. My BF told me the other day that she and her husband want to get a puppy to "train them" on how to be a parent. Because the puppy will make them "less selfish" with their time. I lost it. I was fuming! A puppy is NOT the same thing as a baby. AT ALL! I mean - What an obnoxious remark, right?! We got in a big fight. She said I was rude & I owe her an apology and blah blah blah. I just think it's ignorant to think you can raise a puppy and have allll the knowledge on how to be parent. Nothing can prepare you. And if she gets a dog and then has a baby - the dog will be 2nd. That's just not fair. I refuse to apologize. Am I right ??! Thanks for reading."
