You heard me. This is the second time this has happened to me. Did I mention a few months ago I was the victim of fraud? That the totally cute black puggle puppy I spent over a thousand dollars on never arrived?
Well it happened again, but this time it wasn’t fraud. I was searching the online classified ads for puppies like I usually do once a week or so. I found the CUTEST PUPPY IN THE WHOLE WIDE FUCKING WORLD! Excuse the cursing. I mean, puppies don’t get cuter than this. The ad was posted THAT very day and I was browsing it at midnight. There were pictures of the pups labeled with their names: Slater, Steele, Sabra, and Sawyer. I made a point to call the very next day. I wanted him and I’d pay for him up front.
The woman answered. “Which puppies are you calling about? I have boston terriers and puggles.”
“Oh, I didn’t know you had puggles. Anyhow, I was calling about one of the boston terriers.”
“Yes, I have three puppies out of that litter left. Two boys and one girl.”
I gulped. “I have a feeling the one I want has been taken. Slater. I have to have him.”
“A couple just scooped him up, yesterday, hours after I posted the ad. They’d been looking for a year, saw my ad, and said they had to have him. Just like you.”
“NO! You don’t understand. I have to have him. Did they call you back? Maybe they’ll want to return him.”
She laughed. “Oh no, they really loved that one. I do have three left, though. Let me know.”
And so my question is…do I get Steele who is not that cute, but cute enough? I had my heart set on his brother and just don’t feel the same way about the other pups in the litter.
