    "“I dont want anything to do with your dog” proceeded to buy a bike with a basket"

    you must not question it. Don't ruin the moment. Let him believe that you believe him. That is the only way to make sure that this bike trip continues - without shame and without arguments, and you know that there is nothing more wholesome and adorable that you want to see today than this trip coming to fruition . And many more trips like these later.

    "Begged my husband for months to let me get a dog, he reluctantly let us get her because “she really seems to like you”."


    Of course. You must not question this line either. The moment is fragile. Allow him to believe that the only reason that pup is sitting on his lap is because the pup really seems to like you, not him, never him. Shhh… Just let it happen, let him live his dream.

    '"i don't like cats and cats don't like me"'


    This was, of course, said before this dad got a cat. Since it is a known fact that the only people who don't like cats and think cats don't like them back are people who have never properly spent time in the company of a cat. Really, should have seen this one coming. No one can withstand a cute kitty belly.
