40 Dads Who Didn’t Want A Pet In Their Lives But Ended Up Having One

Dads are so cool, loving, and everything good you can imagine, UNTIL you want a pet in your house. While there is no justification for this behavior, the only reasonable explanation is that Dad’s logic is a tricky business. The fun part is that in one second our dads will be strictly against keeping pets, and in the other second, they will be playing with them. In this post, we have compiled photos of 40 dads who didn’t want the damn pet in their lives. Scroll on and enjoy, peeps. These photos will surely make more sense if you have a similar experience. Share with all the cool dads out there.
