The minute I saw there was a pet adoption our local Petsmart, I knew there would be trouble.
But I had no idea there would be you. Those hideous bug eyes. That intense underbite! I have no defenses against a dog as endearingly ugly as you. Wearing that red vest (it said ARF on it!) and shaking your little curly-q butt at me in the dog shampoo aisle.
You almost got me. I could just see you in our little apartment, Bam-Bam, snuggled in between the cats (I am sure they would learn to love you). You had me at ARF.
We had an intense few minutes there, Bam-Bam, and I'm sorry I couldn't take you home. You really would have fit well at the end of the bed (or, you know, as the small spoon in a cuddle pile).
See you around, Bam-Bam. Don't let the man get you down.
