Ben always wanted a dog as a kid but wasn't allowed to have one ... awww!
Affleck's mom told People mag in 1998 that when Ben was a kid, he asked her for a dog and she made him walk an imaginary one for a week. "When he came up two days' short, he didn't get a dog," she said. "That was harsh. It was wise, but harsh."
Well now that he's a big boy, Ben makes his own decisions and, apparently, has stepped up to the task of walking his doggie. Don't forget to teach your girls to take responsibility too!
