I win the dumb caller of the year award!
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).
Carol and the Frenchies
And a stuffed one is so much easier to housebreak in the dead of winter!
Wow! Just Wow!
And you just know the Daughter REALLY WANTS a Frenchie because Britney, Paris or some other equally vacuous prat has one and she wants to be just like them.
I’m so sorry to hear about Mae’s two pups. How is the little guy getting doing?
