All we had to do was quickly cart past a wire tower of stuffed animals on the edge of the flower section. "Hey! Mommy, go back! There is a sad doggie over there!"
Two isles later, we had what we came for and he was still begging to go back to the puppy. So I caved and took him over. "That one right there." He pointed to a white and brown dog with gigantic eyes. "See how sad he looks? He is sad because he doesn't have a home. We need to adopt him. Can we please adopt that puppy so that he can have a home where I can love him?"
That's all it took. Off the rack came the puppy and into the cart with Daven it went. I asked him when we were getting in the car if his puppy was happy yet and he said, "No, he's still sad because he hasn't seem his new home yet. "
Now (another) Baby Puppy is hanging out with him, Deedee and Momo outside with his new family.
I hope Baby Puppy is happy now.
