New twist on the "We are having a BABY- we HAVE to place our dog"

HELP NEEDED ASAP: Please help!!!!

After two long years of being on a waiting list for an agility dog, we have been notified by the breeder that, at long last, our number has come up and ... WE ARE HAVING A PUPPY!!!

We must get rid of our children IMMEDIATELY because we just know how time consuming our new little puppy is going to be and it just wouldn't be fair to the children. Since our little puppy will be arriving on Monday we MUST place the children into rescue this weekend!

They are described as:

One male - His name is Tommy, Caucasian (English/Irish mix), light blonde hair, blue eyes. Four years old. Excellent disposition. He doesn't bite. Temperament tested. Does have problems with peeing directly in the toilet. Has had chicken pox and is current on all shots. Tonsils have already been removed.
Tommy eats everything, is very clean, house trained & gets along well with others. Does not run with scissors and with a little training he should be able to read soon.

One female - Her name is Lexie, Caucasian (English/Irish mix),strawberry blonde hair, green eyes, quite freckled. Two years old. Can be surly at times. Non-biter, thumb sucker. Has been temperament tested but needs a little attitude adjusting occasionally. She is current on all shots, tonsils out, and is very healthy & can be affectionate. Gets along well with other little girls & little boys but does not like to share her toys and therefore would do best in a one-child household. She is a very quick learner and is currently working on her house training -- shouldn't take long at all.

We really do LOVE our children so much and want to do what's right for
them; that is why we contacted a rescue group. But we simply can no longer keep them. Also, we are afraid that they may hurt our new puppy.

I hope you understand that ours is a UNIQUE situation and we have a real emergency here!!!

They MUST be placed into your rescue by Sunday night at the latest or we will be forced to drop them off at the orphanage or along some dark, country road.

Our priority now has to be our new puppy.

Bet the title make you go "WTF? OMG They're expecting!" LOL Honestly though, it bothers me to hear so many people say that about their pets. All too often they're discarded instead of blended in with the family as it grows. I know so many people who's animals have turned out to be their little ones best friend.....a lot of these dogs and cats were the only 'fur' babies in the home and accepted the new baby with no problems.

Alibi (our dog) is the best baby sitter ever!!!!! Kali would be lost without him!! I would never get rid of my pet unless it was going to harm my child.... but you have to see first how they interact. Alibi was a stress case whenever Kali would cry...he'd run around until i did something to comfort her. His her big brother!!!
