16 Dads Who Definitely Didn’t Want That Pet

It seems a universal truth that whoever claims they don’t want a pet becomes the pet’s favorite person in the home, and vice versa. My partner definitely did not want the puppy we got, who I now find spooning him in his sleep on a regular basis.

There’s no way to fight a puppy, y’all.

Here are 16 other dads who were adamantly against a pet, only to find themselves deeply in love a short time later.

16. The face of a man who has totally capitulated.

And a cat who knows he rules the roost.

My dad: CAN WE RETURN IT??? IF WE KEEP IT, IT CAN’T GO ON THE FURNITURE AND I WANT NOTHING TO DO WITH IT. My dad, out loud, mere days later: “Let’s move this pillow to give you more room. Are you comfy? Do you want some pets? Let’s read together.”

15. He got right down on the floor.

Because the baby can’t jump up right now.

14. Spoiled for the rest of her life.

Exactly how it should be, really.

13. I mean you can’t call him a bad dog.

That’s just not true and dad will not stand for it.

12. The dog’s posture is like “I knew it would come to this.”

Who doesn’t have a personalized song for their dog? Monsters, that’s who.

Caught him hugging the giant dog he didn’t want, he was also singing the dog his own personal song.

11. Well he solved that problem.

That’s what dads do, after all.

“He’s only going to be in the way, I’ll step on him”

10. This is too pure for words.

I want to do this for all the feral babies, now.

Dad: We are not feeding that feral cat. Also Dad: I set up a heated cat house in the backward and put a camera so we can make sure she’s home safe every night.

9. Y’all I am absolutely dead.

This might be the sweetest thing I have ever seen.

8. Just two good boys chilling in their jammies.

Well, the dog isn’t wearing jammies, but that can be rectified.

7. Do you see how they’re looking at each other?

You cannot separate those two sweeties.

Dad went from “You’re taking him with you when you leave.” to “Are you really gonna take him with you??”

6. This is an activity everyone can enjoy.

And of course it’s better with friends.

5. I was not prepared for those t-shirts.

I might never get over it, actually.

4. This dog’s selfie game looks strong.

His yoga game is better than mine, too. Rude.

3. When you find your soulmate…

Even though it wasn’t what you thought you wanted.

My dad hated my previous cat Goldie because my dad worked away so Goldie wasn’t used to him. He’s also “dog person” and really wanted a dog. Reluctantly we got Soldier when Goldie passed away. They’ve been besties ever since.

2. A look of love.

No words necessary.

1. That dog needs a haircut!

But the man looks pretty darn happy.

It’s inevitable, my friends.

Just admit that you’re going to love the crap out of that pet from the beginning and then no one has to say ‘I told you so’ later.
