The Purest Love: Grumpy Dads and the Pets They Didn’t Want

 A dad's mind works in mysterious ways, and sometimes, the sentence "I don't want this dirty dog in my house, and most certainly not on my favorite armchair" is actually an invitation for the pet to join him on that very same armchair. We've all been there: first, you beg your dad to let you have a pet, and after years of convincing, you're finally given the green light; but the moment the pet meets him, they click instantly and YOUR pet becomes your dad's best friend, and they become inseparable. Don't believe us that this scenario is so common? Well, here's some hilarious and adorable proof from 19 real-life stories of dads who said they "didn't want the darn pet".
 

1. "He’s never been a dog person. Ever. And now my dad takes Yuki sailing and talks to her wherever they go. “Shall we garden today? Ooh, let’s dig a hole. Where shall we dig it? Over there! That’s good digging. Would you like a carrot? Some water? Shall we get the paper and do the crossword?”
