Talking Good Home Needed for Children-Funny

Good Home Needed For Two Children


Please help! After two long years of being on a waiting list for a 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:

1) 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 gets along well with others. Does not run with scissors and with a little time and training, he will do well in a new home.

2) 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 Tennessee there are bins where you can leave off strays...does anyone know if there is something like that around here for children?

That is very funny since I am sure you have read that is the one reason that drives me crazy for people getting rid of a pet. Especially when they put in there ad that they are good with kids. Thanks for making me smile on this miserable day.

Having tried, on numerous occasions, to get rid of my children, I can assure you that it is no easy thing. No, there is no drop off bin for them anywhere!









I am so kidding!

I like that. For a second I was like what? You got me. Just for one second. . You should show your kids this and let them know if they don't behave then your going to send them away.

Since I'm from Tennessee, I can say, yes there are drop-off bins (extremely inhumane IMHO). There are none that I personally know of here in Montreal, but I could be wrong.

I got a good chuckle out of this, thanks for sharing it!!
