Too funny. I used to own a ferret and he was a lot of fun, but definitely un-dog-like, so I'd be pretty p'd off if someone sold me a "dog" and it turned out to be a weasel. LOL!

Then again, if the urban legend and photo is true, then maybe the poodle buyers need their eyes checked....


My poodle is also versed in science and math.


Goodness sakes alive...you would think they could tell the difference. Can you imagine the Vet when the 'poodle' came in for it's check up!?



My understanding is that ferrets are cunning little beasts.....but they're still not poodles!

Darwin is laughing AGAIN ;-)


I wonder if a ferret on steroids would have roid rage?

All I can think of is the Fawlty Towers episode where Manuel is convinced a white rat is a "Siberian hamster" LOL http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VPP4P3gKGss


Wow, just when you think you've heard everything Jan comes along with another "I can't believe it" post.

Who thinks this stuff up?


Poodles and ferrets are quite smart... smarter than Dobermans, but then most creatures are smarter than Dobermans *sigh*

Anyway, I could tell that ferret isn't a dog by its nose. Duh!


Man, why do you have to hate on ferrets? :)

They maybe would've had me if they'd called it a Maltese.

Thanks for stopping by my similar post. Love the graphic! I'd forgotten about that urban legend of the woman buying the rat!

Too funny.


I hate to point this out (not really but you always have to say it that way (OOOPS did I type that out loud?)) but ferrets are members of the weasel family and are not rodents. Ferrets eat rodents, and I've always heard it said that you are what you eat. So maybe....


gotta be pretty fecking dumb to fall for that.


humm... actually ferrets are NOT rodents they are related to weasels


I I was that vet...I would have had a hard time not laughing at the customer LOL
