Parents Buy Puppy For Their Kids After They Get Million Likes On Facebook
"A pair of Massachusetts parents said they are making good on a wager and getting a new puppy after their children tallied more than a million likes on Facebook.
The Cordells said the girls read about a family who bought a new cat for their children when they received more than 10,000 likes for a Facebook picture, so they convinced their father to promise them a puppy if their page could top 1 million likes.
The girls took a picture of them holding a sign with their younger brothers and had their mother create a page for people to like.
'Hi World, We want a puppy. Our dad said we can get one if we get 1 million Likes! So LIKE this! He doesn't think we can do it!' the sign read."
Incredibly, the page received more than 1.2 million likes in less than 24 hours. I guess I shouldn't be too surprised, who doesn't like little kids and puppies?
If my niece asked me, "will you buy me a new car if I can get a million likes for my Facebook page?", I would reply "sure kid, what the hell I will buy you a Ferrari, if you get that many likes."
The Cordells are lucky they promised the kids a puppy, and not a lion or a giraffe. The parents are looking for a puppy to adopt from an animal shelter.
The Cordells should be commended for keeping their word, and for doing the right thing by adopting a pooch from an animal shelter.
Maybe I can get a million likes on Facebook, if I promise to buy a puppy or a kitten for every kid in my town.
