I am trying to convince my Dad to call up a French bulldog rescue and get a new dog, and it seems to be working so far. My Mom keeps scowling at me and cutting me looks over her mystery novel while I say, "Daddy! Look at this one! His name is Butterball!" and show him lots of cloying, adorable pictures. Such as the one below.
We'll see who wins this round. All bets on me, folks.
