We are very Sorry to hear that...We can only imagine!
We saw your ad and since we both have been thinking about putting our two doggies for adoption.....we think this might work...
[insert suggestion that we adopt their schnauzers]
WHY. IN GOD'S GOOD NAME. WOULD YOU THINK THAT "MIGHT WORK"?
DOGS ARE NOT INTERCHANGEABLE.
JUST BECAUSE WE ARE LOOKING FOR OURS. DOES NOT MEAN WE WILL TAKE ANY GODDAMN DOG.]
Granted, I think it's reasonably true that we've felt for and sort of wanted every similar dog at the shelter, and every schnauzer who's been posted on the schnauzer rescue listserves, but goddamn, really? Where does it become okay to advertise your similar dogs to someone who's lost theirs?
Hey, sorry your child is missing... Would you like to adopt a new one???
I'm so glad that there's just under 20 hours left in this day and I already feel shitty and fucked up. Clearly this is punishment for Internet-ing too early.
