Can we get a dog?

One question, five words long with a question mark at the end is where this adventure begins.  For the past several (and I do mean several) years the wife, Vanessa (aka Mama), has been asking me (aka Dada) this question "Can we get a dog?”  While I was not against the idea, I did not want to get one until we had the space and money to afford an addition to the family.

For six long years she asked and asked.  She tried everything she could think of to get me to say yes.  For her birthday in March 2009 she wanted to go to Epcot, so we packed up the car made the 90 minute drive and spent the day at the park.  During dinner at the Mexican restaurant we love in the Mexico section of Epcot I finally told her, "We can get a dog now."

What happened next you ask?  She cried.
