Dear Dish-It: My Mom's Giving Up My Dog

Dear Dish-It,


I’m trying to convince my mom not to give my dog away. We’ve had her for a year. Please help me – I don’t know what to do.

Dear BBM,


I’m so sorry – this is a tough situation. I have a dog and I would never give him away! I think what you need to do is ask your mom if you can sit down and talk to her about her decision to give your dog up. Don’t get mad and don’t get upset when you talk to her – just stay calm. You need to show her you’ve given it a lot of thought and you feel really strongly about wanting to keep your dog.


You could also try telling your mom that you will take care of the dog and take on all the responsibilities of having a pet. That means you need to walk your dog at least twice a day, even if you have to get up extra early before school. You’ll have to be in charge of feeding her and making sure she always has clean water to drink. You’ll also have to train her so she behaves well around the house and so your mom has no reason to get frustrated with her.


If you promise your mom that you’ll take care of the dog, you’ll have to stick to your word and keep it up. You won’t be able to let even one single walk slip by. If you really want to keep your dog, it’s time to act very mature and grown up and show your mom you’re old enough to take care of a pet and to help out around the house.

    I have frizzy hair also. Normally I just put anything that says Anti-Volume in it, or Anti- Friz :p Normally that calms it down, I also have thick hair. xD

Report them to the principal. Tell them how you feel. If it gets worse contact the police ( I've had to do this )
