Real, Live Miniature Dog
The Promise: A true yapper, like Paris Hilton's chihuahua Tinkerbell, this dog apparently was small enough to fit in a tea cup. You could also request a monkey if you weren't a dog person. One feature is that the dog will fit in a box. (way to suck the life out of it)
The Truth: You would only get a pet if you got 20 of your friends to order hand-coloured photo enlargements and send them in to the ad's sponsor Dean Studios. I'm sure that was a hard road to hoe, but I wonder if anyone ever actually pulled it off and if they did, what kind of sickly half-dead animals arrived at their door?
