Maryanne wants a free trained dog, and food.

By johnboy - 26 July 2011 55

All Classifieds have a listing from Maryanne which seems, well, optimistic:

Pet Dog Or Puppy For Apartment

Price: $1 – $10
Posted: 26 July 2011

Location: Turner, ACT, 2612
Contact: Maryanne

Details

Hi, I’m looking for a companion dog or puppy suited for an apartment. Potty and house trained, to indicate when to go outside to poop and pee would be good. Also the basic commands, sit, come and down. Also to not chew cables or my papers or anything it is not supposed to chew.

Do not mind, whether it comes with food. If it has favourite toys or bedding, I would appreciate you giving it to me as it would save me money. I would have no trouble picking it up as I have a car so I can drive anywhere in the ACT or Quenbeyan.

Would prefer cheap or free as I’m broke!! Please contact by mobile or email if my phone is off, in case I’m driving.

Regards,

Maryanne

Moving beyond the fact as a 24 year old, she demands a free trained puppy (or companion dog, yikes!) complete with accessories, admits she can’t afford to maintain its health, feed it, or keep it entertained, and answers her phone while driving so is a magnet for a recurrent traffic infringement cost…

It would be irresponsible to give a dog to a person so out of touch with reality that they want Hey Hey its Saturday back on tv.

After all pets are not toys.

On this topic, how does “Toy Puppies R Us”? still exist? and who on earth thought that was a good name?

Every time I hear their bubbly excuse for an infomercial on the radio in the car I want to drive my fist through the center console.

It seriously bothers me how irresponsible these people are in their marketing.. ‘toy puppies’.

Especially when the message from RSPCA is the exact opposite:

Honey if you are broke you cant afford a dog – or any pet for that matter.

+1. Highly irresponsible. Maybe she is the crazy dog woman who used to hang around the city begging for money to feed her dog?

I agree if you can’t look after yourself and your existing bills, you can’t look after a pet properly. I hope for an animals sake that someone more suitable will be available.

christ, a dog can live for over 15 years. This lady needs a plant, not a dog

maryanne – you could adopt an untrained puppy or dog and do it yourself. That’s what most of us do. The nicely behaved dogs aren’t like dial a pizza where you just ask for what you want – you have to put in some hard yards early.

– or you just read them a book the way you do little kids. Fine to chew – shoes, bones, sticks. Not fine to chew, show him a picture of power coards, furniture and the like.

So do you work Maryanne – or is this dog destined to spend hours a day alone in your apartment…?

Irresponsible, yes.
But imagine if we all lived in Maryanne’s world, where Lake Burley Griffin was made of chocolate and all the trees tasted like lollipops and the roads were made of rainbows?

<straight face>Well she can’t be completely irresponsible. After all, she does not answer her mobile while driving…</straight face>

You stupid woman. Believe me lady, it costs more than a tin of Chum a week to keep a dog in good health. If you can’t afford to ‘buy’ a pet then you can’t afford to ‘keep’ a pet. END OF STORY!!

But, but… she has a CAR and can drive ANYWHERE! She obviously feels very grown-up because of that achievement.

Would be an awesome joke to react to her ad, meet up with her and then give her one of those toy dogs that bark and wag their tails when you press a button. That’s exactly what she needs!
