The Art of Negotiation

|
After a long negotiation with my eldest daughter who really wanted a dog, we agreed on a suitable pet for her. So from this pup...

...we bought her this dog instead:


She took these pictures. I found them after uploading my camera pictures.

Love the one with the dog looking out the window.

And tell her that a stuffed dog never leaves any dog sausages to step in.

Not easy owning pets. It's a huge responsibility that many people don't realize..especially kids.

You've got mad negotiating skills since you managed to convince your daughter to go from wanting a real puppy to a cute puppy stuff animal :)

This puppy is adorable! And no mess to clean up, no walking it, and this one won't shed all over the place!

Dora said...

yes I remember you blogged about your daughter wanted a dog when she came across one at the pet shop. So it's settled with having Penelope at home finally! Guess it's the darling for your daughter everyday now :-)

Uncle Lee said...

Hi Rosebelle, love your humour. And this the best, no going out for walks 5 times a day, bending and scooping, waking up at 3am, whatever....
All kids love dogs, but its the mom or dad who has to care for it.

Have fun and keep well, Lee.

You are such a good negotiator! So happened my elder boy is begging me for a pet too lately and I was wondering what should I do. Puppy is definitely out due to his allergic. Maybe I can try my negotiation skills too yeah.

Jen said...

Well it looks like she's taking good care of him.
