We've heard it all before. Dads who claim they don't want any pets and when one does make it into the house, they protest loudly that they want nothing to do with it.

Well, we're not buying it dads! We see what happens when you think we're not looking — those tender cuddles, those loving pats and those secret treats.

Dogs have a way of working their way into our hearts. Just ask these dads who told everyone that they didn't want a dog...

1. This dad didn't want a dog. But he did want a napping buddy.

6. These two who are clearly inseperable.

7. This guy who is the master of reverse psychology.

8. This dad who told his kids that the dog wasn't allowed on the couch. (Or maybe he meant to say that the kids weren't allowed on the couch.

9. This dad who needs to password protect his phone.

10. This snuggler dad.

11. Or how about this dad who clearly wants nothing to do with this dog?

12. Oh yeah, he really hates that dog, can't you tell?

13. This dad who is letting his soft side show.

14. This dad who is all about the fashion statement.
