Our dad’s logic is a tricky business. For whatever you ask them, they will find a way to go about it. But if you just try mentioning a pet and you’ve just served yourself a rant, because dads don’t want to see those paws in the house until they actually get one.
Every day on the internet you can see jokes about how much dads adore their new pets and how easily they forget that “never ever” that they swore, like, a day ago.
Below we have a list of dads who shouted the loudest but now love their little furballs more than they love their kids.

Chris Blazina, a psychologist, and professor at New Mexico State University College of Education researches the emotional and psychological connection between men and dogs. Also, Chris is the author of two books: “When Man Meets Dog,” and “Men And Their Dogs: A New Understanding of Man’s Best Friend.” He told that in Western culture, “there is a very rigid approach to what is considered ‘masculine’; these include being stoic, tough, and denying a need to emotionally bond with others.”
This results in a complex issue because for “all the rigid rules, men are still social creatures that are hardwired to make and sustain emotional bonds with others.” It explains why, in popular culture, depictions of “masculine” men bonding with cute little pets are so rare.
Chris explained: “their bond with their animal companions can take on a more complex and central role.” Also, he added that it happens due to men’s social networks that are usually smaller, “As males age, they shrink to the size of a postage stamp—a romantic partner and if they are lucky an animal companion.”
