Mom, can we get a puppy? Can we name him after Dad? Do you think that would be confusing to have two Dads in the same house? I know you don’t think I’ll walk him, but I will, I swear I will. Larissa has two puppies. And she says they’re no problem at all. Well, except that the new one, Morgan, pees on the rug a lot, but her Mom says that’s normal. And he chewed her new sneakers, which made her Dad mad cuz he paid for them. And he ate the corner off the coffee table - not the Dad, the dog. But it’s OK because he ate the opposite corner the next week, so now they match. And then the big puppy, who’s actually a dog now, he accidentally stepped on the little one and broke his leg. Now little Morgan has a cute little pink cast. He looks adorable in his pictures! See? (holds up cell phone) And tomorrow after school, Larissa said I can come over and sign his cast if I want to and I really, really want to, so can I go, Mom? Please! Can I? It won’t take long.....
