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!
With baby number three on the way, Ben will have his hands full helping wife Jennifer Garner with the family's new addition. Let's hope the housekeeper doesn't forget to take out the pup!
