Rattie Reality?

I spent a good deal of time the other day, upset about the way a woman was listing a rat terrier and her pup for adoption because she did not want the dog to get pregnant by her male dog again.  I was proud of the blog and it was quite therapeutic to share my feelings, thoughts, and concerns about it.

Here is the blog

The same day that I published the blog, I received an email from a reader. 

It stated, "actually, the gal was referring to a pet RAT..."

When I read that, I could NOT STOP LAUGHING!  The first thing that came to my mind viewing that listing with the word "rattie" was of course rat terriers.  To think I just gave a lecture about rat over population!  LOL!

To the person who posted the listing, my apologies for misinterpreting your ad.  I suspect that perhaps I was not the only one who did misinterpret it.  Have you considered getting another cage?  They sell them on craigslist!  LOL!

I am still proud of the blog, but let's all pretend it is about two rat terriers when we read it, and not two rats!

I will write another blog... as soon as I can stop laughing about this one!
