Oh, no. Not for us, although my children have become quite the fans of these puppies.
My parents got two puppies recently. Their dog Molly was hit by a car and died, and my sister and I both encouraged them to get a new canine friend. They surprised us both by getting two puppies! The children visited for a couple of days last week, and Sass (of course) is in love with them.
They have been after me to get a puppy. Or two. I said no way.
I showed them. I bought a fish for them instead.
