This guy’s daughter employed very savvy tactics in an attempt to get him to buy her a puppy
And it looks like people on Twitter are on her side, too.
Persuading your parents to get you a puppy is a tall order, but certain tactics might increase your chances.
That’s what one Twitter user’s child is hoping, anyway. Brendan Greeley, an economics writer, posted the following image to his Twitter feed which demonstrated that, while his daughter still might not get a puppy, she knows how and where to get her message across.
Having studied my habits and preferences, my daughter hacked my attention this morning for her political agenda pic.twitter.com/GPlS3gSj5S— Brendan Greeley (@bhgreeley) March 21, 2018
“CAN I PLEASE GET A PUPPY?!” the message read, with “a real one!” added underneath.
The message was written above a story regarding data analytics firm Cambridge Analytica, which has become embroiled in a storm over Facebook data.
And while Brendan appeared reluctant to give in, those on Twitter felt her actions warranted a new pooch.
You have to get her one for being so smart and even specifying “a real one”.— Aditi Juneja (@AditiJuneja3) March 22, 2018
I heartily endorse this message, although I have not been paid to do so nor will I benefit from this in any way financially or reputationally.— Simoney Kyriakou (@MoorgateMermaid) March 22, 2018
I do not have any links, political or economic, with your daughter or her need for a doggo.
That said, puppies. pic.twitter.com/7Khry2Fh4n
Best HACK of a political agenda EVER! This girl DESERVERS a REAL puppy!— C Fig (@figc001) March 22, 2018
Even JK Rowling retweeted the picture, which had something of an effect.
Me: Well now we have to get her a puppy— Brendan Greeley (@bhgreeley) March 22, 2018

Part of Brendan’s Twitter profile now reads: “Wife, children, dog AND NOW EVIDENTLY A DAMN PUPPY, TOO”.
Bad luck, Brendan.
