Unbelievable - "buy one get one free" ad
« on: June 28, 2008, 02:52:25 pm »
This was on a local Yahoo group:

Purebred Cocker Spaniel for sale only $25 to a good home. She is nearly a year old and is up to date on her heartguard wormer. You're sure to love her.
Take advantage of this special.....bu y one get one
free offer.....mix breed under a year....very smart, part lab, perhaps part catahoula. Her name is Annie. Up to date on her monthly heartguard.


Wow. Some people are so heartless and clueless.

Absolutely unbelievable.  These are living creatures.  And did they really have to word it like it was a sale on tires or something?
