"My girlfriend doesn't like my dog, so I appeal to you," began a Craigslist ad, titled "Free to good home."
She is a purebred from a wealthy area and I have had her 4 years. She likes to play games. Not totally trained. Has long hair so she's a little high maintenance, especially the nails, but she loves having them done. Stays up all night yapping but sleeps while I work. Only eats the best, most expensive food. Will NEVER greet you at the door after a long day or give you unconditional love when you're down. Does not bite but she can be mean as hell!
The appeal would make any dog lover's heart totally sink. Who would want to give up this beautiful and loyal dog?
