Enjoy your poodle.
Why am I getting a poodle?
Can I have an iPod instead?
No. You can have a poodle. But, if you want, you can name it iPod, to remind you of the iPod you're not getting.
Or we could compromise, and you could name it iPood. Sort of a combination of "iPod" and "Poodle." Also, it's a complete sentence that describes what you may or may not have done today.
Good luck with that, though.
Could you at least get me another breed of dog?
No. What I have for you is a poodle. She's a fine bitch. She has gastric dilatation volvulus, thyroid issues, epilepsy, sebaceous adenitis, and cancer. Unlike most dogs, which have double coats, she has a single layer of dense, mangy fur.
Your poodle sounds diseased.
I think you mean your poodle.
