Dear Rosa,

You're in luck. We still have one golden retriever puppy waiting to be adopted. Fluffums is an irresistable little bundle of love who has melted the hearts of all who have met him. He loves to be held and cuddled while he covers our faces with wet, sloppy kisses. I have no doubt that this adorable little furball will charm his way into your heart, as well. When would you like to come and pick him up?

Well I can quite see the problem. See, there it says in a green box that he's dead. Then further down the page that he's not. How terribly confusing. If only there was some way to determine the status of this claim...

The dogs are free to a good home. All we ask is that the new owner pay for the shipping. Send one stamped self-addressed envelope per dog (size A4). Please allow 6 - 8 weeks for delivery.
