Wife Replaces Hubby With Dog In Family Photos
Kathy Leffler has been on a mission to grow her family by adopting a dog her husband Michael, has been resistant to the idea getting of a new pet. So Leffler decided to get creative.
Leffler opted for a more discreet approach — one that would hopefully plant the idea in her husband’s mind without her saying a word. Leffler grabbed some scissors and cut pictures of dogs faces and pasted over her husband’s.
“I thought it would be funny to replace my husband’s face in all the photos throughout the house to get his attention,” Leffler said.
In each and every one of those cherished family photos, Michael was now a pup. The effect is subtle, but profound — giving the impression that the dog of Leffler’s dreams has always been a part of their family, and a part of her husband. But would it convince him? Michael soon arrived home.
Leffler greeted her husband and acted like nothing was amiss. “He didn’t notice the pictures right away,” she said.
However, they eventually did catch Michael’s eye. He was surprised, no doubt, but also delighted by his wife’s tenacity.
“He couldn’t stop laughing that my mom had actually gone that far,” Alyssa, the couple’s daughter, told The Dodo. (She’s eager for a new dog, too.) “My mom’s very funny!”
Leffler’s husband has yet to commit to her pro-pup plan entirely — though, thanks to this adorable ploy, he may be one step closer to caving.
His wife is clearly determined, managing to make her case in a way that put a smile on his face. Like a new dog surely would, too.
Michael has plenty of reminders of that now.
