I’ve had some impressively dumb ass puppy inquiry phone calls this year, but the one I got just minutes ago (on Christmas eve) wins.
Caller, in desperate voice – “You sell Frenchies?”
Me – “umm, I breed them, yes.”
Caller – “I need a Frenchie puppy, right away. Can you get it shipped overnight, by courier? I’ll pay extra. I heard that UPS is doing last minute shipping for Christmas day.”
Me – “Uh, we don’t do that. We don’t ship at all, and we don’t sell Christmas puppies.”
Caller – “Oh dear, can you tell me someone who does? My daughter REALLY wants a Frenchie for Christmas.”
Me – “Apparently FAO Schwartz has some lovely Frenchie puppies for sale, and they ship. Try them.”
Caller – “Thanks!”
Who the heck thinks you can ship a puppy overnight in a box, like fruitcake?
Happy Holidays, everyone. Peace on earth to you, your family and your dogs (live or stuffed).
