I’ve recently acquired a job and have been saving up the checks I’ve been getting. Ever since my dog died (I have another, but she’s so sad without a companion) my house feels a little empty. I’ve been looking at dogs online (on animal shelter sites) and I have found this dog that is absolutely perfect, I can’t get him out of my mind. How would I go about letting my mom let ME get a dog? I know for a fact that I’d be able to pay for food, a collar, a leash, treats, and everything he’d need. The only thing that would be a problem is that I wouldn’t have as much free time as I’d like, though I don’t work much and have some free time. He isn’t a puppy, he’s an adult so he wouldn’t need a constant 24/7 watch. I would take a week off from work to get him used to me and the home. So… How can I get my mom to let me get this dog?
If this were me, I would first bring up how lonely your other dog is without a friend, then ease into how you found this awesome dog online, but don't say your gonna get it yet. Start talking about how you can pay for everything, THEN say how your gonna buy her. If you make it sound like your begging, it won't be as effective, but if you don't sound willing enough either it won't help. Maybe you can "rehearse" with a friend of what you are going to say. Good luck! :D
Thank you guys! I decided to write a letter, because I read somewhere that makes people think you're more responsible and also... I'm not very good at talking,so hopefully she'll be in a good mood tomorrow and will let me get that pup! :)
