So FI’s aunt runs a dog rescue. She posted on FB a week ago that there are a lot of dogs that need foster homes, and I told FI we should take one. Originally we were getting a dog right after the wedding as my wedding gift, but…it’s just a foster dog (until I fall in love, right??). So…he thought about it and kept saying “I don’t know”, “I don’t think we should right now” (we are planning a move sometime soon), etc.
Today we got home, and were just sitting there watching TV and I didn’t even bring it up and he goes “I think we should get a dog”. I can’t even imagine my face. I was like “What? Now? For real?” He goes, “ya…I petted a dog today and realized I miss it.”

Can I just say how jealous I am?!?! I have been dying for a dog and I am afraid if I bring it up one more time FI will ban me from dogs forever!

@Mrs Hedgehog: interesting story- I stopped badgering my then SI for a ring and started badgering him for a dog, so he proposed! Then for my birthday the next year, I got a puppy!
@soon2bhis: Sounds like this is going to be a great dog!
