We caved and got a puppy. Our daughter has been asking for a while and we considered it. Neither my husband nor I has had a dog before, but we both thought it would be nice. We decided to surprise her for her birthday, and had a puppy waiting for her when she got home from school. She couldn't have been happier. We named her Lucy, and she has been with us for 6 days now. It's a lot more work than I prepared myself for. Luckily, she is cute enough to make up for the lack of sleep. It's a bit like having a new baby, but thankfully they grow up a lot faster.
