Great Craigslist posting!!!

Love it

Help Urgently Required! Please help! After two long years of being on a waiting list for an exotic rare breed dog, we were finally notified by the breeder that at long last, our number has come up, and... WE'RE HAVING A PUPPY! We must IMMEDIATELY get rid of our children now, because we just KNOW how time consuming our new little puppy is going to be! Since our puppy will be arriving on Monday, we MUST place the children in new homes this weekend!!!

They are described as: One male, white, blonde hair, blue eyes. Four years old. Excellent disposition. He doesn't bite. Name is Tommy. Temperament tested. Current on all shots. Tonsils removed already and very healthy condition! Tommy eats everything, is very clean, house trained and eats along well with others. Does not run with scissors and with a little time and training, he will do well in a new home.

One female, strawberry blonde hair, green eyes. Three years old. Can be surly at times. Non-biter, thumb sucker. Her name is Mary. Temperament tested, but needs a little attitude adjusting occasionally. She is current on all shots, tonsils out, and is very healthy and happy (mostly.) Gets along well with little boys, but does not like to share toys. She is house trained, and would do best in a one child household.

We really LOVE our children, and want to do what is best for them. I hope you understand, that ours is a UNIQUE situation, and we have a real emergency here! They MUST be placed by Sunday night at the latest. I hear that in California there are bins where you can leave off strays...does anyone know if there is something like that around here for children?

Well, as they say down here in Dallas: "Kids! You can't live with them, and you can't trade them on Corvettes."

Yes, someone down here many years ago (1985 or so) actually tried to trade their kid for a Corvette. The dealer called the police. They told him to go ahead with the deal. When the folks drove off the lot with their new Corvette, they were arrested.

But obviously this person on Craigslist has a great sense of humor.

I wonder if they're really getting a puppy, or are just poking fun at some previous listings?

There had been a funny response to the posting, and I just tried to search for it but it looks like the original ad and the reply have been taken down - that's a shame!!!

I've seen that several times, always makes me laugh.

I hope it makes people re-think giving up their pets.

I've seen it before too, and it always gets flagged

We have a sign up in the adoption center at petsmart. It has a persian kitten on it and says "We had to get rid of the kids, the cat was allergic"

We get a lot of comments on it
