Out daughter has been asking for a puppy for about a year now. Well, she wants both a dog and a unicorn.

Some friends have puppies available, and they would give us a really good deal on one. Plus, we know the parents of the puppies are calm, child friendly dogs.

To be honest, I hadn't really considered getting a dog until much later when DD could totally take care of it herself. But she wants one so badly, and I think she's a little lonely (her sister is only a baby, and we live in the middle of no where without other kids nearby). What would you do?
