A Beautiful Giveaway: Suki & Dolly! (CLOSED)

GiveawayWe're both super excited and emotional about this giveaway! Jeremy and I have been trying to find new homes for our beautiful dachshund and pug for a few weeks now, because they just aren't really fitting our lifestyle anymore. We love them, but we just can't handle the dog hair and accidents anymore. We think they would be better off in new a home!

So we thought about it, and what better place for Dolly and Suki than one of our readers' homes?! So it's the ultimate giveaway! I know you're probably wondering two things: (1) Are you giving them away as a pair? and (2) Can I still enter if I live outside the US?

1. We'd prefer to give them away as a pair. But if the first winner only wants one, we'll choose a second winner.
2. Yes!SukiDolly TO ENTER: Just leave us a comment telling us which pup would be your favorite and why. The giveaway is open until April 8, and the winner will be contacted shortly thereafter. Good luck!

Dolly   xo! Elsie 


  • I didn’t forget it was April fools day ๐Ÿ˜‰ but I’d still love to enter. Haha dolly and suki are the cutest!

  • I almost had a heart attack! I almost felt a little mad that you were giving up your puppies that you love because of dog hair and accidents, haha. So glad that you’re not! ๐Ÿ˜›

  • Dolly in the bath – awwwwwwwww! Thank you for making me smile on my birthday, guys!

  • hahaโ€ฆ I was feeling a little sad at first. The funny thing is I was thinking about what April fools joke you would pull this year. Good One!

  • Cute!! Haha! As a fellow dog owner, I can say that we’d do anything for our fur babies. My 9-year-old German Shepard recently got diagnosed with Addison’s disease, so it’s been a struggle to get her back to “normal.” Finally getting there ๐Ÿ™‚

  • I read and could not believe it, “that strange!” thought … haha

  • woahhhh! I felt my blood boiling for a minute!!! /steps away from soapbox! Good joke, gang!

  • I was waiting for your April Fool’s joke to be posted today! Nice try!

  • Omg this so got me! I certainly breathed a sigh of relief when I read April fools, best one I’ve seen all day!!

  • This is a sad, sad joke. I tell my husband on a daily basis how much I want a dog just like Dolly! ๐Ÿ™

  • Well, at first I was shocked and pretty angry about this… and then I saw it… April fools… Well done, you got me ๐Ÿ™‚

  • At first I thought you must have lost your mind! Then I wanted to enter of course, because Suki and Dolly are the cutest and WHO wouldn’t want them?! Great April Fool’s joke!

  • Reading this was a roller coaster of emotions. Being a dog person, I was shocked that you’d think to do this, angry about it because of your reasoning, sad for the pups, and then relieved when I realized it was all a joke. You got me!!

  • You got me! I was ready to stop reading your blog! Who gives dogs away in a drawing? Good one.

  • Oh my goodness! I was about to leave a disgusted comment about giving up dogs because of ‘not fitting into your lifestyle’ and giving them away ๐Ÿ™ So glad this is an april fools joke. Phew!!

  • Hahaha! That was the best so far today! I was thinking, “Ummm… who the frick gives their dogs away via BLOG GIVEAWAY?!” I thought you were just awful for a sec lol.

  • I’m seriously way too gullible! Until I reached the comments, I thought this post was true! I thought, how could someone get rid of their dogs just because of dog hair?! My dog would be long gone if that was a main concern for someone. Haha. Great prank! Thanks for the laugh. Although you did tug at my heartstrings thinking maybe I could win one!!

  • I didn’t forget it was April fools day ๐Ÿ˜‰ Great April fools idea though!

  • omGGGGGG you almost GOT ME! but to be honest, i’d totally adopt both of these sweetie pies… ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Oh my gosh I was so relieved when I saw the April Fools PS. Phew! I felt bad for those cute babies!

  • You totally got me! I was seriously thinking I’d have to stop reading A Beautiful Mess because I can’t IMAGINE giving up my pup! LOL The best April Fool’s I’ve seen in a LONG time!!! Nice work!

  • I almost started crying when I began reading this and then realized what day it was. HAHAHAHA! You got me!

  • I was about to write would you give your kids away if they were messy but then got to the bottom–u got me. Happy April.

  • I actually got a bit mad reading this and then I saw the comments LOL ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Oh my gosh! Totally fell for it! I was so broken hearted for them :(((( so glad they are staying in their loving home <3

  • Oh, I’d love to have your doggies. My favourite would be the one that can run the longest, as I am currently building a small-dog-powered jetpack. I hope to eventually move on to husky-driven hovercars.


  • OMG! I almost unsubscribed right then and there!! This is by far the best one I’ve seen yet! Comparable to healthytippingpoint’s last year about adopting a mini pony!!

  • OMG – good one! As a fellow dog lover/obsessor, I was about to boycott ABM! Holy moly – you had me!! Soooo glad this was just a joke, I wasn’t ready to break up with you ๐Ÿ˜›

  • Me too!! I was getting all agitated then when I scrolled to the bottom I started laughing.

  • Omg — my heart stopped — I thought: no way could they be that horrid — COULD THEY????!!??? Excellent April Fool’s — hats off! ha ha ha!

  • Hahaha you really almost had me going! Great April Fools. I was about to cry a bit that you would actually go through with giving them away.

  • You guys get me every year. I even reminded my hubby what day it was before he left work work…duh! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Ha you got me today! I was so mad especially when it said anyone outside US can enter because there is no way someone would ship their pets like that.
    That’s a good one, Elsie! :))

  • OHMYGAWD I almost sat down and wrote the most horrible feedback ever. As a doglover i almost died now,like WTF doesnt fit your lifestyle HAHAHA wow,man Im glad it was aprils fools.

    I have adopted a small street Diva, a Chiahuahua mix from Spain as she was tossed into the street to die. I have two other wonderful mutts aswell, one Italian Greyhound and a gorgeos one of a kind Chinese Crested/Pug mix
    They are my treasures and have cost a pretty penny in vetcare and accidenst,men but ill never give them away, I rather give the guy whom Im living with up first. Come to think of it I trade him for a new pup or a cool sofa anyday hahaha ๐Ÿ˜€

  • Oh my gosh….you totally got me. I was so surprised! It didn’t seem like you ๐Ÿ™‚

  • I did something similar like this with my pug and lost a friend over it. If they really knew me they’d know I’d give up my right arm first lol

  • haha. This is a great one! I was reading it and thinking how sad and strange this was, and then I totally laughed out loud at the end. One of the best April Fool’s jokes I’ve ever seen!

  • Oh man. You guys got me big time! I was just about to compose an angry tweet, and then I saw your last sentence. For a second there I lost all hope for ABM. Mad props.

    xx A

  • ahhh i was about to write the crankiest comment about how irresponsible and out of character this was…thank god it’s not true wheww!!

  • The worst!!!! You totally had me, and I was thinking, ‘what kind of blog am I following!?’


  • OH-MY-GOSH!! I was so confused, sad, wondering why you would go about it this way, starting to think of the letter I’d write you to see if I could just have a conversation with you to make arrangements to get them. Then I realized I couldn’t take two dogs!! OH the emotional roller coaster you just took me on!!!



  • This is such a great April Fools joke. I was sitting here trying to figure out what in the world you were talking about – because I knew there was no way ever you would do this. Hahaha you defiantly got me.

  • I almost unfollowed you until i got to the bottom and saw the April Fool’s joke.. i’m an animal lover and was just getting so pissed reading this…. i hate april fool’s!!

  • You guys got me so good….tears in my eyes turned to giggles… I have a puggy and I understand the hair and peepee come with the package of never ending love and snorts. Doggies just make life so much better! โ™ฅ

  • ohhh i hate you guys!!! i was scrolling down just to curse you and tell you bad words hahahahahaa then i read the comments. I almost buy tickets to USA and bring that cuties with me to Chile :’)

  • omfreakingosh!!!!

    i was having a heartattack just reading this!

    i was thinking no!!!!

    how could you!


    and then i was going to say, im on my way!

    let me get an oil change and ill be there in 2 days!!!!

    i love your puppies.

    thanks, for giving me a heart attack at 845 am!!!


  • How is it possible to experience all of the following emotions in a span of 30 seconds – sorrow, anger, grief, more sadness, relief, LAUGHING OUT LOUD IN STARBUCKS!? You so got me, you naughty girl! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Just for one moment i thought…. “This is impossible” Elsie and Jeremy are going crazy…!!!!! Hahaha take a deep breath when I realized it was just a joke…!!! I love both dogs …. if someday change their minds ….. (joke) ๐Ÿ˜‰ haha kisses

  • I was pretty amazed when I started reading this because it didn’t sound like you at all. I don’t know why but I just couldn’t picture you giving away your puppies like this, because ‘we just can’t handle the dog hair and accidents anymore’. Thank God it was just a prank. And an awfully good one :p

  • I was shaking my head the whole time, I nearly cried!!! You got us good! ๐Ÿ™‚ They are adorable!!! Together and in your loving home; with you all!!! lol

  • I was trying to figure out how shipping would work! Lol
    I’m sad to say.. you totally got me.. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Elsie!! You almost had me there, I was like “Okay, I am flying up there tomorrow to take those doggies back to Jamaica with me!!” – then I realised, what a good joke. April Fool’s. I only thought that for a fleeting second, but I was laughing my head off when I realised how hysterical it was!

  • Ha! I was totally going to write a mean comment and tell you that I would be unsubscribing from your blog. Glad I kept on reading the post. ๐Ÿ™‚ This is the best April Fool’s I’ve seen so far!

  • I am extremely relieved this was simply an April fools joke! As a doggy mommy myself, I would have been inclined to stop reading ABM (which would not be easy for me) ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Hmm, this is a tough one! The pug might snore and I like my sleep. Does your pug snore? Would your pug be willing to wear Breathe Right Strips to reduce the snoring? I bet so! If not, maybe some doggy hypnosis to get rid of that puggy snoring habit! Are you planning a doggy hypnosis giveaway soon?!
    What about the doxy? Will your doxy race? How fast is your doxy? I think some important facts have been left out of this giveaway!
    But I suppose these pups are pretty cute! Iโ€™ll take both. I plan on entering 200 more times.

  • OMG. I was almost in tears until I saw the April Fools. haha. I was like ” SHE CAN’T SPLIT THEM UP!!!” April Fools gets me every time!

  • OH MY GOSH. Elsie you TOTALLY got me for a second! I have to admit I started getting a little peeved/sad….gosh I am so gullible.

    I do feel your pain re: the dog hair. I have a Great Pyrenees (he looks like a polar bear) and dog hair has pretty much consumed my life. It’s the balance of loving a dog so much I guess ๐Ÿ™‚ Any tips on stain removal or hair removal? ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Ahhh, I’m so glad this is an April Fools! I was reading along thinking, surely not..! Extremely glad you wouldn’t give your pups away in a blog giveaway! ๐Ÿ™‚ x

  • Omg great April Fool’s joke!! You guys totally got me and I was starting to get upset that you were just giving them away to any crazy and I was going to stop reading. LOL good one ๐Ÿ™‚

  • My heart was crushed that you were going to give your beloved dogs away!! Until I realized it was April 1st…:) Well played.

  • Oh my God, I saw this and was like, “Wow, I don’t know if I can read this any more…” You actually got me! Well done. (Don’t worry, I’ll keep reading!)

  • OMG! I was so fooled! I thought “what kind of awful people are you? and awful things” hahaha, glad it only was first april!

  • oh my GAWD. as a dog person whose dogs are my children – this was shocking and heartbreaking and i hated you! i almost just unsubscribed!!!!! ACKKKKK!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DANGEROUS! i had COMPLETELY forgotten a.f. was todaY! HEART ATTACK!!! HHAHAHAHAAAAA

  • WOW, Im really glad that last line was there, I was gearing up for the most nasty comment. That was a good one!

  • “We love them, but we just couldn’t handle the dog hair and accidents anymore” hahaha. Good one! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • hahaha shipping a dog to Europe then? Good joke. I believed it until I read the comments below. Genius one.

  • I’ll have Dolly please; she’ll be the perfect mate for my little Daxi, Pickle ๐Ÿ˜‰
    hehe! x

  • Wow, that was a really good one. I’m relieved that you’re not giving them away!

  • Hahaha very cute post! I loooove pugs ๐Ÿ™‚

    My blog is Happinesslovestrength.weebly.com I post inspiration and motivation & would feel honored if you checked it out ๐Ÿ™‚

  • I always forget it’s April Fools Day, so I was so confused and sad for a second (especially when you said you were willing to ship the doggies out of the country!). So funny. Loved this April Fools joke. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • OMG, you TOTALLY got me! I was all, “whaaaa? That’s so irresponsible! They really seemed to love their dogs! You can’t just give up a dog to a stranger!?!?!” I literally felt my heart relax in my chest when I read the “April Fool’s” at the end. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • HA! I was slightly horrified by this post until I got to the end!!! : )

  • Shit, you totally got me! I just came from walk with my and neighbours dogs, and reading this made me feel like you must be out of your mind, I mean, you can’t do a giveaway with a dog!! Thanks god it’s a joke or that wouldn’t be my favourite blog anymore ๐Ÿ˜€

  • I thought this was rather odd. Then I laughed out loud! Great April Fools joke!

  • I actually fell for this. I was so sad that you were giving them away. Glad it was a joke. Good one.

  • This literally brought me to tears! SO HAPPY it was a joke…but that was mean!

  • I have been reading your blog for several years, and gosh, it was the first time I was about to comment to say ‘I want them both, they melt my heart whenever I see their cute little faces’! Anyway, I did get fooled, and I am still in love with your blog after all this time!

  • I completely forgot it was April 1st! Sheesh, you almost gave me a heart attack!

  • I was about to become VERY VERY SAD!! Thank goodness it’s just April Fool’s….how could you say no to those sweet faces.

    i totally fell HAHA
    my heart broke while reading that you were willing to give them away!
    i was like “no… out of everyone, not her…”
    kudos, girl. didn’t see that one coming haha

  • Holy Hell. I was so ready to never visit this site again. I am a damn bleeding heart for baby pups… And now I feel like a jerk for thinking you guys were serious!

  • I was definitely really mad for the two minutes before I realized it was April Fool’s Day.

  • You almost had me!! Of course I would take them both in a minute (even though I’m allergic hehe) but they’ve already got the best parents around!! So cute!! Put a smile on my face ๐Ÿ™‚

  • AAHHH .. i was so so glad this was a joke. If that was true โ€ฆ the world would be square!

  • Ha. got me! So cute your doggies. I love the shot in the bathtub.

  • Holy smokes – I was already composing an angry “how dare you / where are your morals” comment to post. I am so thankful this was a joke! Dolly & Suki foreva.

  • I was just so sad and thinking, “Wow, these lovely women would never DO something like this! Would they? They write one of my very favorite blogs! How could they?!”

    You got me. You got me GOOD. ๐Ÿ™‚ Your dogs are beautiful; I hope they’re with you for many years to come!

  • Omg I was literally thinking to stop following the blog… I just don’t understand how people can give away pets that are so attached to them lol you got me!

  • omg I was about to un-favorite you for your babies not fitting your lifestyle! Okay fine, that was a total exaggeration. But still! I was shocked you could just give away your pups! Nicely done ABM, nicely done ๐Ÿ™‚

  • OMG I almost cried when I saw their little faces & was totally angry for a minute – thank God it was an April Fool’s joke! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • omg, this is a GREAT april’s fool joke, but also a little sad one! “they’re not fitting our life style” and a random give away? nooo. but congrats on this awesome idea! <3

  • Hahahaha good one!
    I was wondering ‘Who would give away their dogs?’ Then I realised it’s the first of April ๐Ÿ˜€

  • OMG I almost cried for this, we don’t celebrate april fools and couldn’t believe that you could be so cold about your puppies. Cruel prank! (but good one)

  • Holy crap. I read that and my heart dropped into my stomach…until I got to the comments and realized it was a joke. My level of respect for you guys was quickly plummeting- I mean you’re super stars so you can manage two dogs & a thriving business! … and then I got the joke. Thank goodness. LOl. Good one. You got me for sure.

  • omg! i was so confused lol! i was wondering how anyone could give up their babies ๐Ÿ™‚
    xo jac

  • Knew from the get-go that this was an April Fools post! Yea right – giving away your dogs – ha ha!

  • OMG I was so devastated that you were giving them away– best april fools.

  • BY FAAAAAAR the best April Fools ever, ladies. I l-i-t-e-r-a-l-l-y GASPED, put my hand over my mouth, and teared up. HA! I hope that’s the reaction you were going for… ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Okay, I seriously almost started crying. I was like “she is going way too far”. Hahaha I love how you guys play tricks like this. You guys are awesome.

    PS. I’d take both of them:)

  • I literally started crying then made a mental boycott of this website till I got to the end of the article. My goodness!

  • I’m so glad this was a prank, my heart was breaking for them. Though as the owner of two pugs, one who is blind and has IVDD, and a Chiweenie with Addison’s disease I get the temptation and joke. But as my h as they drive me crazy they fill my life with joy and love more.

  • hahha omg I really belived it…. and I was really worried for the puppies !!!!
    haha ๐Ÿ™‚ buon pesce d’aprile, greetings from italy

  • Omg!!! I died a little when I read that you shipped them internationally haha. Good April fools joke.


  • Oh my gosh, I actually believed it!! I was so sad until I read until the end. Hahaha I’m way too gullible!

    Nice prank ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Oh my…..that was a good one.
    Yeah, who would giveaway his/her dogs to somone who lives outside ?!
    or leaving a comment saying who’s your fav pup? lol


  • OMG! My eyes got so wide when I read this and then I almost started crying. I was thinking about how much I love your blog but how I don’t know how I could possibly have any respect for someone giving their dogs away like this. LOL. You SO got me!

  • This made me so sad at first. haha As a dog owner/lover myself, I could not imagine this.
    I forgot it was April 1st! I must say it was a very good April fools.

  • To start off with I was like “oh my god I cannot believe how horrible these people are, I thought they were the sweetest but obviously I am a bad judge of character” – so glad it was an April Fools ๐Ÿ™‚

  • OMG! I couldn’t believe what I was reading but I totally fell for it. You got me! You’re gonna think silly me but as a cat shelter volunteer I’ve heard/seen worse. One of our ex volunteers abandonned 4 of her cats at our door step last year. 1 is still with us but she is too old by most people’s standards (12 years old) to be adopted and has a chronic disease anyway. Poor Tama. And bad Elsie!

  • Sadly this would be a lot funnier if people didn’t ACTUALLY give up their pets for such stupid reasons ๐Ÿ™

    Such cuties though!!

  • best one ever…I was seriously mad and about to stop reading this blog!!!

  • Ohhh goodness I was incredibly confused and knew this could not even be possible!! And I was so sad about the seemingly flippant attitude about them ‘just not fitting your lifestyle’ … I almost didn’t see it at the bottom but then I got to breathe a giant sigh of relief!!!

  • HAHAHA I totally believed that! (Forgetting it was April Fool’s) Good one! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • I was so sad about this considering how much I love my babies (aka dogs), but I’m thrilled to know it’s an April fools joke.

  • Hi, I’m interested in adopting one of the dogs. I love both breeds! I can’t handle both sadly though. I live in Baltimore and have an apartment, so a smaller dog would be perfect. It would be great if you could let me know if thats a possibility or not? I do have a cat so if one of them gets along with cats and also other dogs that would be necessary. Emailing me would be fine.
    Sincerely, Chrissie

  • Ya got me! You should have seen the look on my face as I was reading this post!

  • You didn’t get me! I follow you and Jeremy on Instagram… those pups ARE your lifestyle :)xo LOL

  • I totally fell for that. My mouth was wide open as I read the post! XD

  • To add insult to injury you were willing to split them up………I was sick over that. I cannot believe I fell for this (especially since you are such a sweet girl). Good one, callous, but very good!

  • I was like no. freaking. way. this is not happening….hahah thank goodness!

  • Wow. I good one. I was super concerned for a second that you would give your dogs away so easily!

  • oh! the precious picture of the little red hoodie pup makes me so happy! i’m glad i experienced some april fools fun, too.

  • I actually started to get legitimately angry!! I’m so glad this is a joke, you love those lil guys! Haha

  • Oh my gosh, I just got way too mad about this!! PHEW!! I need to calm my heart!

  • Total heart stopping moment! gah! sadly, I see this everyyyyy single day in dog rescue land. every. day. and those reasons are spot on. “they don’t fit our lives” “hair everywhere” “she peed on the floor once in 7 years so she’s out!” etc. rips my guts out on the daily. BUT I have to say this is still hilarious. thank you for being amazing doggie parents <3 <3

  • Aww boo y’all suck lolโ€ฆ I was like how could they part with those cute little faces. good one.

  • I was getting really really angry!!! Like what kind of people would give away their dogs, crazy angry and then bum aprils fool. Im so glad it was just a joke

  • Can’t believe I almost fell for this hook, line and sinker
    I was even getting quite angry. Good one. Well done.

  • Wow! Best April Fools! Will take some beating. Totally sucked in and was so shocked I was even going to stop following you.. So glad you wouldn’t part with your cuties ๐Ÿ™‚
    Ps: Haven’t been following you long, love your blog x

  • I was horrified!! I thought you were the worst and was going to dump your blog! Totally fooled me!! Dang…

  • Hahaha I am in Australia so a day ahead, the April Fools thing didn’t even occur to me. I was just thinking how could anyone give up their gorgeous puppies and be excited about it! Good one!

  • Before I got to the “joke” part I was thinking I’d delete your blog from my Feedly, was so mad! I just couldn’t imagine anyone giving their dogs away to total strangers in a competition. Guess you got me!

  • Gosh, I almost had a hissy fit! Was about to jump off this blog….. thank goodness it was 1st of April madness.

  • I’m so glad this was a joke! I was just about to go off on you for being a bad mom and dad giving away your babies. We have two Shih-Tzu’s and would never dream of giving them away!

    So glad Suki and Dolly will never be separated from each other or mom and dad!

  • OMG!!!! I almost cried!!! you couldn’t give away these sweety pup faces with their big eyes !! Good one, really! I’m soooo lucky it was just an Aprils fools ๐Ÿ˜€ Lol good that Suki and Dolly don’t know about.

  • Love it!!!! I was about the call a pet preservation agency because I couldn’t believe you would actually offer dogs as a giveway…Best joke of the year!!! By the way, how did you intend to send the dogs to an international winner????

  • Wow! You actually made me cry… Until I realise it was a joke… Then I cried even harder!

  • HA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was feeling so down and so sad at first! Geez,that was a good one!BAHAHA!!

  • The most legit April’s fools i’ve ever seen. In. My. Entire. Life.
    I was so concerned, I scrolled down to the comments just to make sure someone offered to take both!

    *Internet High Five* Good one.

  • I was ready to banish this blog (one of my all time favorites) right off my Favorites list. You so had me… ( – :

  • Ha. I was so angry. Good April Fools! I’m glad I finished reading the post or I might have never come to this blog again.

  • Okay, so it was an April Fools’ Day joke. The problem is that there are entirely too many people who get puppies and then a few years later decide that the dog no longer matches their lifestyle. There are way too many dogs (or other pets) dumped or left at an animal shelter (and later euthanized) by inhumane humans. While others may believe this to have been a good joke, those who truly care about their pets should find it a repulsive thought.

  • ha ha! you totally got me. i couldn’t believe the lovely people i’ve come to ‘know’ could suddently do something so distasteful!

  • I can’t believe I fell for that! My emotions went from alarm (that you were giving them away) and the confusion and then slight excitement and contemplation.

  • Oh my gosh I was so sad! I started wondering while reading and rereading the first paragraph if I could even follow the blog anymore. So happy you you are keeping the little ones!

  • OMG! i was just thinking “HOW COULD THEY DO THIS?!” and then… phew! you really got me ๐Ÿ™‚


  • I can’t believe I fell for that!! My heart broke into a million pieces I’m so glad you’re kidding!!!!!

  • Wow I was glad to read that is was a joke. I was really close to write some seriously mad stuff ๐Ÿ˜‰ Good one.

  • Oh my gosh!!! At first I got so sad reading this! Ha! Ha! I was about ready to say I would take Dolly because she looks like my little Ruby’s identical twin. Thank god you aren’t getting rid of your precious little loves! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • I was so sad and angry in the same time, I couldยดn believe what I read it. In Argentina is December fools, so until I read the comments I was ready to stop reading my favourite blog. Now my heart is beating again.




  • This is not funny at all :[ I’ve been thinking about this post since yesterday because it was so disturbing to me! How could you think about your dogs as things to give away, even as a joke? I adore this blog, but after this post I’ll be taking an ABM break. What a shame!

  • Oh my, you had me too… I was about ready to leave a comment telling you off! LOL! I’m so glad you aren’t giving away those precious babies! :o)


  • So funny. Reading this on 4/2, you really did have me fooled because I’d already forgotten all about April Fool’s Day.

  • Omg!!! You got me! I was ready to stop reading, I was a little emotional as it didn’t make sense, I thought you loved them, and I was like, that’s it, I’m done with this blog, how could they. Ho you!!! That was a fantastic April fools prank?

  • WOW I almost started crying. To think about someone giving away their pets, their partners in crime, /their best friends/! I’m glad it was a prank!!!


  • OH my gosh. Just catching up on posts and I almost got tearyeyed! This was a good one!

  • omgosh, you totally got me!!! i was so upset and angry that i was about to cast y’all off forever! LMAO!!! so glad i don’t have to. ๐Ÿ™‚ xo

  • omg I was ready to write some serious hate that I didn’t know I had in me!!!! hahaha good one! and yay for dolly + suki getting to keep their home!!

  • i very nearly stopped followig your blog and left a comment with a million swear words… starting with cold hearted…. you had me! well done… but you very nearly lost me!!

  • I almost hit DELETE to this blog. Thank goodness for April Fools. You had me there.

  • You really had me! I was thinking what an awful thing to do to your cute puppies!! And also womdering how you would ship them internationally!!

  • I love it!! I think I would have been horrified if I hadn’t already known this was a joke when I came over here.

    Hop over to my blog and check out my April Fool’s Day post!

  • hah. omg I was having a heart attack reading this…I was in complete shock and couldn’t believe it. I’m also reading it a few days late so YOU GOT ME GOOOOOOOD!

  • omg i nearly had a heart attack and this was like 4 days ago. *breathe*

  • OMG i just believed the whole thing I was screaming in my house thanx god it’s a joke I was so sad !!

  • ๐Ÿ˜ฎ I was just about to leave a nasty comment! They’re so adorable…God bless you for being dog lovers and loyal because yes they are so much work right? Xxoo mary s.

  • HA!!! These dogs are so precious…I am sooooooooooo happy this is an April Fools Joke!!!!

  • OMG, I am a NEWbie reader and I believed it. SEND them BOTH to us immediately you scum bags!

  • I thought you had gone crazy and was about to blast you for saying your dogs “didn’t fit your lifestyle anymore”. I cleaned up middle of the night poop from my 13+ year old blind terrier (with Cushings and heart problems) just last night Wasn’t fun, but it wouldn’t make me want to give her up either. Great April fools joke, but it made me angry at first:) You got me!

  • OMG… Saw it at the 8 April and therefor i have no idea off a April “fun” I was almost clear to take the plane from Denmark to US to relieve these beautiful dogies from so pour owners who have animals as a give away and for poor reasons as hair and accidents, WOOW i was glad to read all the other readers who saw this one at the first of April, i love Doxies but was willing to take boat just so they not vere in the live of so poor owners..
