My mom Cathy woke me up from my nap today. “Look what I just read in an Examiner column,” she yelled, pointing to her laptop. I refused to budge so she told me what she read. And then I see why she got so mad.
You can read the whole thing for yourself, right here.
Accoding to my mom, some Examiner.com columnist praised the best Craiglist Ad of the Week. The ad was headlined: “Wanted: Someone To Make My Kids Cry.” Here’s the story:
A single dad was looking for an actor to pretend to be a dog walker. The dad had found a new home for the dog which was a “terror” who couldn’t be trained. This actor would take their cocker spaniel for a walk and return, pretending the dog had run away. In fact the dog would supposedly go to a new home. The actor would be there when the kids started crying. The actor would be pad $500 for about two hours of work.
Can you believe this? A cocker spaniel who’s terrorizing the family?
I’m a dog and I can tell this whole thing is sick. No wonder nice dogs like me end up in rescue.
Here’s what my mom wrote as a comment:
- Sorry, I don’t think this ad is funny. If the dad would invest the $500 in a dog trainer, the kids would have their dog and no reason to cry. Has the dog been tested for health problems? Was it abused? If the kids grow up into terrors (not surprising, with this parenting) will he give them away too?
