People really will buy (and steal) anything…

I was surfing the web a couple of days ago and found this: Go ahead; check it out.
Ok, seriously? I kinda get people who want to do something to remember their pet. I’ve had friends have a dog creamated. My parents planned to do this until their dead dog was stolen. Yes, you read that correctly. I’ll get back to the stolen dead dog in a minute. People really collect their pet hair and send it away for someone else to spin into yarn? Any they pay money for this? I might even get someone spinning their own pets hair; roving gets expensive after a while… But paying someone to spin Fluffy into yarn? So, what, after your pet is gone you can wear him as a scarf? Maybe it’s just me, but that’s a little creepy.
My parents opted to have their dog creamated. Apparently the pet creamatorium comes to get the reamins from the vet. After they picked up the dog, the guy driving the brand new, unmarked van, stopped at Petco for some supplies. (This part of the story had my husband and I rolling on the floor laughing while we asked what kind of supplies a pet creamatorium would need from Petco. Did he think they needed treats? Toys? Food? We doubted that they sold matches at Petco…) While he was in the store, some unsuspecting fool stole his van that was full of dead animals. Talk about instant Karma: you steel a brand new van and a few miles down the road discover that it’s full of dead animals. As far as we know, they never discovered the van or the animals.
Spend a little time on ebay and you’re bound to find a few strange things. Happy shopping!

    That has got to be the weirdest thing I have ever heard! I wonder if I shave my FIL’s back, save the hair and send it to them, if they can turn it into some sparkly glitter yarn?

    OMG my in laws would have been devastated if that happened to their dog, giggle. The dog fibre thimg I can’t get past the point of why would you want to wear anything knit from dog fibre just in case you got caught in the rain, who wants to smell like a wet dog?
