Ban introduced in NY on drunk puppy-buying

275x250.jpg
Pet stores in New York say they've been forced to introduce a ban on drunk puppy-buying, because of the number of inebriated animal-lovers.

Bosses at Le Petit Puppy say the move to refuse the sale of puppies to drunks is a response to the number of people they've had come out of nearby bars and take an interest in their pups.

The problem comes from the fact the pet store is surrounded by bars and that after happy hour, drinkers are taken by the cute dogs in the window.

In the past, drunk dog buyers have even been known to return the next day with the puppy and ask the store to take it back.

So now, even if they have got the $1,200 to $3,000 to buy a puppy, inebriated dog fans will be turned away and asked to come back when sober… alternatively they could log into the live-stream of the puppy window



THE TRULY STUPID ARE AMONG US AND THEY ARE ABOUT TO BREED



This couple clearly wanted to make an big impression at their wedding reception by arriving on a zip line… but maybe not like this.The bride had led the way by flying along on the zip wire over a lake and wedding guests towards the reception, and the intention was she'd be joined by the groom.

But the parachute effect of her dress meant she slowed down too quickly and didn't quite reach the end of the line.

Unfortunately the groom had already set off by this point and ploughed into the back of her before falling to the floor. There's nothing like starting a marriage as you mean to go on.
Speaking on YouTube the couple said: "We actually did practice this earlier in the day, it's just that we didn't take into consideration the parachute effect...whoops :) lol."
