Im not sure what mama would do honestly. I think she would look at it as very dis-respectful of me and get really hurt/angry. They have wanted a dog for a while now, and waited till one came along they wanted so it wasn't spur of moment type decision - which makes it more frustrating to me, prehaps im too highly strung and expect too much -?
I think I will print out some text and let her read over it. She really likes Cesar Milan too...I will record some and play it back when she is in the room.
Thanks for your honesty everyone, its appreciated.
