Neil: Now that he’s at home, I admit, he
is pretty adorable. And you’re right, we did have enough room for a pet.

think we made a good choice.

a change of heart” means that someone changes his/her mind on a

heart” because he didn’t initially want a pet. But now that they have the
puppy, he’s happy about it.
