Reluctant dad agrees to let his kids have a dog ONLY if they sign this amusing 'contract'

When one man’s kids pestered him for a dog, he decided to lay down a few important ground rules before agreeing to their demands.

A US dad is making waves after he shared the ludicrous details of a contract he let his children sign before he would get them a dog.

John Stone was being bothered to death by his three children that they wanted a dog. So whilst he finally agreed, he laid out a contract of their roles and responsibilities in caring for the dog if it eventually arrives.

Stones, for instance, wants to have nothing to do with the dog’s feaces, so that was the first condition. ‘Dad never has to pick up poop, ever.’ is the first commandment.

He lists several other conditions for the kids, (10, 11, and 13 years) who gleefully sign.

Check out the terms and conditions of Daddy’s doggy contract.

This brings me to the induction of the African print fabric into the work-sphere (work atmosphere).

In Nigeria culturally till date it is not  an "issue". What a tragedy.
