Message sent to rescue organization.

"MUST REHOME due to new addition to family. After two long years of being on a waiting list for a schutzhund dog, we have been notified by the breeder 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 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, is 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 & 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. She can be surly at times, is a 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 & can be
affectionate. Gets along well with other little girls & 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 nolonger 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 areal emergency here!!! They MUST be placed in 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."

Quite right too, that's all as it should be. But I'm still not offering to take the kids.
Just dump them.

I hope that's tongue in cheek, although I can't tell. Sounds like the people who gave up the cats we have now because they wanted to raise dogs. They had had the cats for 2 years, had neutered and de-clawed them, and then just gave them to a rescue agency. I don't know how you can give away good pets you have (presumably) loved for 2 years.

Too funny and a cute twist on pet adoptions. Also what Friko said.

How funny and telling of our times. It's good to hear from you. Hope all is well in Dani Land.

This is a joke...Right? Although I can certainly believe two young children and a puppy would be way too much for most people to handle.

Smart folks! As a mother of 3, I have often pondered on the fact that a dog is always happy to see you, gives unconditional love and will listen to you for hours on end.
