I browse Craigslist every so often, mostly looking for dog training equipment, or chicken things. While I’m browsing, I also like to scout the Pet section for Shibas and lost dogs in my area. I follow that by searching generically for “dog”, which has become a form of self torture for me. Here is why: If the d-bags that are flipping puppies, or “looking for a femail to breed with lab/gsd mix with papers” isn’t enough to give me indigestion, surely all the 7 week old teacup designer puppies for “adoption”, adolescent pit puppies that “sadly are not allowed in the new house”, and 11 year old “we love him very much and hate to see him go but he needs more time and attention and is too jealous of the baby” dogs, are. Also, what’s with all the Hissing Cockroaches and Dumbo Rats for sale? Do people really keep these as pets? The least CL could do is mandate pictures of the skeevy owners along with their wares, just for grins, otherwise it’s like a really uncomfortable blind date (which is synonymous I realize).
