Everyone loves puppies. Their fuzzy fur and big feet are adorable. But alas, puppies grow up and become dogs; still nice, but not as cute. Enter Perpetual Puppies!

By using a simple and painless surgical procedure to remove a relatively unimportant gland, your puppy will stay cute and cuddly for the duration of its life! Those floppy ears and clumsy feet will continue to delight and amuse you and your family and friends! Women swoon over puppies! Kids adore them! Old people are revitalized!

Soon to Come: Perpetual Kitties!

Disclaimer: Puppies life-span may be shortened. Longterm psychological consequences of the Perpetual Puppy procedure are unknown. Puppy may develop medical problems as a result of the procedure. Perpetual Puppy Inc will not be held responsible for puppies health or wellbeing after surgery.

       Toy sized dogs are just like as they have been bred for the continuation of their neophyte stage. I saw this on a TV docuumentary about the variety of dogs that have been bred from wolves.

       If you take "puppies' life-span may be shortened" to its logical conclusion, this is already, unfortunately, Baked.

       How's about Bonsai Dogs?

       PeterSealy: the word you're thinking of is probably neoteny.

       -alx: You can't prune dogs! What you going to do? Take the secateurs to them. Dog's running about - well, actually hobbling about - with stumps in place of paws. And then there's the wiring.

       Ya ask me, them "Peekacockers" and "Miniature Pugaroos" (or whatever) are already pretty much bonsai. Twisted, runty, can't tell 'em apart from deformed rabbits anyways. Bah.

       Rant wrapped in a dumb idea wrapped in even dumber adspeak.

       Why don't you just get one of those robotic puppies?
mrkillboy, Jun 17 2001
  

       But Bubba, that's what ads do! They disclude (is that a word? Oh well. I'm not a Perpetual Puppy, but hey, I'm a puppy) relatively -important- information.

       It's really sad how many people don't want they're pets just because they don't look as cute. My dog used to be an adorable puppy too. Now that she's older, she can learn more and isn't as hyper. Plus, she's housetrained too, so that's a relief.

       I thinkn that a Dingo would make a better pet. After all, if the poor animal starts to have psychological defects, I think that you will be trying to housebreak that animal for a long, long time.
