A personal ad seen in the Atlanta Journal:
"SINGLE BLACK FEMALE seeks male companionship, ethnicity unimportant. I'm very good looking and LOVE to play. I love long walks in the woods, riding in your pickup truck, hunting, camping and fishing trips, cozy winter nights lying by the fire. Candlelight dinners will have me eating out of your hand. I'll be at the front door when you get home from work, wearing only what nature gave me. Call (404) 875-6420 and ask for Daisy. I'll be waiting..."
Reportedly over 15,000 men found themselves calling the Atlanta Humane Society about an 8-week old black Labrador Retriever puppy...named Daisy.
I can relate (to the dog part, not the mentality of calling a singles ad)! We adopted a puppy in March of 2004, a Black Lab / Border Collie mix, that fits this description perfectly. Midnight welcomes me at the door everyday, often beating my two kids to get the first hug. He's a first-class member of the family.
