My wife wants a dog, help! in Footballguys Free For All Posted February 11, 2020 2 hours ago, Da Guru said: I have said that 3 times. When my Yellow Lab passed away 5 years ago I said that's it, I can`t take the pain because she was the best dog and I loved that dog to no end. A couple months later My wife and daughters go to Traverse City in Northern MI for what they said was a girls weekend. They walk in the house on Sunday night with an 8 week old Yellow Lab puppy. I was so pissed that I acted like I did not want or like the puppy. Within one day I was carrying her around like a child. As I type she is laying under my desk with her head on my foot. I don`t know what I would do without her. Now she is the best dog ever You’re right which is why I hope she doesn’t get one.
