Hello, dogless.

Hi
I'm Becca, I'm 15 years old and I've wanted a dog since I was about 5
Every single year I beg my parents but I'm still not allowed one, me and my little sister have even made a whole plan, about how much money we'd need to buy everything and do the vets bills and everything, really considering everything, and thought of every problem and reason that mum and dad could say no and solving it but still no
So many people I know are getting new dogs at the moment and its depressing me, mum knows what I'm like with them and she knows how much I love them.

I enjoy having a responsibility and I enjoy having something to look after that is affectionate with you, I love walking, and often go with my friends to walk their dogs and persuade them to let me hold the lead

But anyway, I wanted to join here so I can learn even more things about dogs and talk to people who have them, I will get my dog one day!
Nice to meet you all

Love Becca,x

Welcome,

Same name as one of my little sisters! I am also new. read up, browse around and ask questions. It's unfortunate that your parents won't allow you a pup, Hopefully they will concede eventually. And if not you arnt that far from adulthood, i know 3 years probably seems like a lifetime, but as you get older they move quicker

Welcome, and I to am very sorry to hear that your parents won't let you have a dog. Just a little story, When I moved into my first apartment I couldn't afford to live in the complexes in my area that allowed dogs so I went to my doctor and convinced him to write a letter for me stating that for my safety and health reasons I had to be able to have my dog living with me and long story short I got to keep my dog. So I know what it's like to be desperate to have a dog and try to do everything you can to keep them or get one. Hopefully sooner or later your parents will let you get one and if not like Peddler said your really not to far from being an adult and being able to get yourself one.

I got my first dog at 31, although I grew up in a house with lots of dogs so maybe it isn't the same struggle. I am sure your parents have their reasons, even if they don't make sense to you now.

I love the idea of volunteering at a shelter. You could show responsibility and really help out there too. You would just have to make sure that you didn't get too broken hearted in the end.

Hey Becca, another teen here. I agree with the above that say to work at a shelter. That way you could experience all sorts of different breeds and personalities and maybe it might convince your parents that you are REALLY serious. It took me 3 years to convince my mom that I was really serious about running sled dogs. She thought that it might be just a passing phase and that I would get over it or grow out of it. With time though she realized that I was serious and finally let me get some sled dogs of my own. Hopefully your parents, with time, will allow you to get a dog!!!!
