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...
