15 Dads Who Were Totally Against Having “That Damn Dog“ in the House

Let’s be honest — we all wanted our own dog when we were kids. Some of us even asked Santa Claus for one. But only the most responsible and convincing among us were lucky enough to persuade our parents to buy us a beloved pet.

We at LikeAble have been studying the following photographs and realized that kids should never surrender in their pleading, for it’s clear that even the strictest dads actually really love dogs.
