How do i convince my mum to get a dog?

i no wat breed i want : toy poodle ( i even no wat i want to name her). ive researched everyhing about them and made a slideshow full of hundreds of things for example the annual cost and upkeep. i ve tried begging and that just annoys and angers my mum. and cleaning my room or high grades wont help the situation either. also my dad said he'd pay to buy the dog if my mum was happy with having a dog. my mum just recently told me her problems with getting a dog are the expense, damage, winter walks in the dark and being tied to the house if im else where ( but i only meet up with friends about twice a year). could someone plz help me come up with four solutions/ strong argues this means so much to me so any help is highly appreciated :) by the way i d appreciate it if no one commented accept ur not getting a dog or ur mums house ur mums rules only positive helpful comments please :)

Hi. Just try showing your mom that you are responsible enough for a pet :) I have been in this situation before, and sometimes nothing works because our parents are set in their ways and don't like to give in. I really hope it works out for you. Maybe you could talk to your dad? It seems that he is with you on getting... More
