14 Pictures That Prove There Is No Bond Quite Like That Of A Pet And The Dad That Claimed He Didn't Want Said Pet

Dads and dogs basically have the same interests: naps, snacks, wandering the house...

It's a tale (tail? lol) as old as time — a dad claims he doesn't want a pet, the family inevitably gets a pet, and within a couple days, the dad and that cat or dog are inseparable.

It's basically science. Pets and dads have lots of things in common — falling asleep on the couch, wandering around the house, having a nice little snack. Literally, a match made in heaven. So, here are 16 dads who said they didn't want a dog or cat, but actually ended up having a new furry best friend:

1. This dad who lasted literally one day before he caved, made a new best friend, AND named him:

Día 1 mi padre: no quiero ningún gato! No me importa que se vaya usted de la casa Día 2 mi padre: entonces se va llamar Rocky porque yo quiero

2. This dad who could not have had a harder fall from "I hate cats" to "I bought my boy Elio a custom door mat so everyone knows he runs this house":

mi padre: no quiero un gato, en el momento en el que entre un animal aquí os vais los dos mi padre un mes después:

3. This dad who swearssss the dog asked him for some of his popsicle to cool down, and that he did not, in fact, offer to share his own popsicle with the dog:

Mi padre hace 4 años: no quiero saber nada del perro. Mi padre ahora: me ha pedido calypo que hace mucho calor.

4. This dad who went from "no dogs in the house" to "these are my babies, and I WILL feed them out of my hand":
