Best of Craigslist

Please help! After two long years of being on a waiting list for a dog, we have been notified by breed rescue that, at long last, our number has come up and ... WE ARE HAVING A PUPPY!

We must get rid of our children IMMEDIATELY because we just know how time consuming our new little puppy is going to be and it just wouldn't be fair to the children.

Since our little puppy will be arriving on Monday we MUST place the children up for adoption this weekend!

They are described as: One male -- his name is Tommy, Caucasian (English/Irish mix), light blonde hair, blue eyes. Four years old. Excellent disposition. He doesn't bite. Temperament tested. Does have problems with peeing directly in the toilet. Has had chicken Pox and is current on all shots. Tonsils have already been removed. Tommy eats everything, is very clean, house trained and gets along well with others. Does not run with scissors and with a little training he should be able to read soon.

One female -- her name is Lexie, Caucasian (English/Irish mix), strawberry blonde hair, green eyes quite freckled. Two years old. Can be surly at times. Non-biter, thumb sucker. Has been temperament tested but needs a little attitude adjusting occasionally. She is current on all shots, tonsils out, and is very healthy and can be affectionate. Gets along well with other little girls and little boys but does not like to share her toys and therefore would do best in a one child household. She is a very quick learner and is currently working on her house training. Shouldn't take long at all.

We really do LOVE our children so much and want to do what's right for them. That is why we contacted a rescue group. But we simply can no longer keep them. Also, we are afraid that they may hurt our new puppy.

I hope you understand that ours is a UNIQUE situation and we have a real emergency here! They MUST be placed into your rescue by Sunday night at the latest or we will be forced to drop them off at the orphanage or along some dark, country road. Our priority now has to be our new puppy.

This was seriously on Craigslist? I must admit that I had a good laugh!

OMG I freaking LOVE this. I am so so sick of seeing the listing for dogs who are being abandoned because it's just "too much" for people to deal with when they have a child.

Oh I laughed at this.

Thanks for visiting my blog, and yes... it's a big project! But my heart is really in design, so it's a blast for me! :)

Hilarious!!! I was different - when I had baby #3, I started writing the listings for kid #1 and #2 as I KNEW I couldn't keep all of them!

The puppy - that one was snuck in on my while I was in Africa. There should be a law against surprising mommies like that.

Go Pirates!!! (And why is it that drunk people can pee in the woods and not realize that there are other people who may not be quite as tanked, that can still SEE????)
