Help Urgently Required!

Please help! After two long years of being on a waiting list
for an exotic rare breed 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:

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.

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?

Yes, folks, this was a tongue-in-cheek joke, of a sort. We hear all too often that the reason a dog is being placed for adoption is because a couple is having a baby (or has had one). I urge you to think about how changing your family will affect the family you now have, or plan to have. If you are planning to have a baby, please don't adopt a dog unless you are sure that you can commit to the attention that both will need.
Research the breed you will adopt.
