4. Get it and say, "Honey, I woke up in the gutter and this pup was next to me."

 

That's assuming you drink. If not, go with, "Hey, he was in the driver's seat and wouldn't get out!" or "How was I supposed to know that 'buy one get one free' meant that if I got a watermellon a St. Bernard was the 'free one'?"

7. As the late Commodore Grace Hopper famously said...

 

"It's easier to apologize than it is to get permission."

If you aren't familiar with her, she was the driving force behind the development of COBOL and the one who coined the term "bug" with respect to computing. A moth got into one of the relay switches and jammed up the whole machine. She taped the dead moth into her log book and hence the term was born.

Go get the dog. Tell Honey "I'm sorry, I just couldn't resist" and then take her out for dinner or something. You know she'll melt just by seeing the dog, but the apology and dinner can't hurt.

Not only will you need a forklift for the food.......you'll also need one for the other stuff!

I think you will love your new Bernard pup!

12. you need to come up with something other than "stay warm in the cold months" because

it doesn't really get that cold near Charleston.

Wow. Hope you can adopt him. You need to be very nice to your wife for ... ever, I think.

Edited to add: a friend of mine rescued a Great Dane and a truly massive Mastiff ... he ended up buying a minivan to lug the big ole slobbery loves around.

13. If it makes you happy, go for it!

Promise your wife something wonderful and I'll bet when she gets that first puppy smooch she'll love him, too.

And then post lots of pix - can't wait to see the two of them together!

14. Awww, they'll grow up together

and up and up and up...

Hey, as long as you're not overly attached to the idea of groceries, it's all good. Cause we know where the food budget will be going from here on in. I think it's great. I know you and your very understanding wife will come to a successful negotiation. She does not sound like an obstructionist at all.

17. We need pictures

and I think this would be great.

If we were a little younger there would be some of the great big ones in our future. We now just have an Old English Sheepdog. Husband always wanted a St. Bernard and a Mastiff, I wanted a Newfy.

19. They'll be wonderful.

We've had two Great Pyrenees for years. They don't need much floor space, since they seldom frolic.
And even when they do ram around a bit, it doesn't last long. I always introduce them as the family rug impersonators. Most of the time they snooze and allow the cats to adore them. And once in a while we go for a stately walk. And when they sit in the backyard (fenced) they just SIT in the backyard.

20. yeah Junior already has the rug thing down :)

He can sleep through a nuclear bomb

Junior is fun.He just wanders along through life with his tongue hanging out bumbling along.He's a blast.He spends half his waking time staring at nothing,slobbering away.
Katie loves him now.She teases him relentlessly.She will lay chewtoys in front of him then take them away.She makes sure early the bigger dogs understand who is boss

Gonna take him fishing next weekend...will see...may take two .Junior hasn't been near water yet...should be interesting

For your sake...and for the huge goggie's sake. We all need all the love we can get these days.

Wishing you, and the puppehs the best!

23. thanks

have the *growing* junior and the wonder terrier...the bernard would just be icing on the cake.

Katies the real baby...she's a trip.8 million tons of energy in a 22 pound dog.If she's wound up and no one is in the mood to play with her she plays solo frisbee.....she's pretty good at it...she can get a good twenty foot toss sometimes.
Katie rules..she sleeps between us on the pillows...everyone else lays where she allows it

on earth.

Nothing better for our pets, than a loving home.

Wishing you the best of luck...and prosperity, too. Those giant goggies will need lots to eat.

Won't that leave one dog out of the "best buds" club?
