Surely this press release I received this morning has to be an early April Fool's joke?!!


Pasante introduces canine condom 
New condom to help combat unwanted pregnancy in dogs
In response to the growing problem of unwanted dogs in Britain, Pasante, the UK's fastest growing condom brand, is launching the 'Condog', the world's first condom designed specifically for dogs.
Since the start of the credit crunch, it has been reported that the UK's streets are awash with more abandoned and un-neutered dogs* than ever before. This new canine pregnancy aid hopes to turn the veterinary world on it head as an alternative to expensive castration costs.
Last year, animal re-homing centres reported a marked increase in the amount of abandoned dogs. The average cost of caring for a dog for life is estimated at £13,000** and, as belts tighten, dogs are set to be the latest credit crunch casualty.
Many of these animals arrive at animal centres pregnant due to their owners not being able to afford fees for essential operations such as castration or spaying.
As one of the market leaders in condom manufacture, Pasante identified a market for a product to help address this problem. The new Condog adheres to the same stringent standards as its human counterpart and meets all quality regulations holding both a CE and BSI Kite mark.
Pasante is confident the Condog will go a long way to calming a rising problem and greatly reduce unwanted pregnancies. It will provide several associations, such as the R.S.P.C.A. with stocks of the Condog from early April and will be on sale in most veterinary surgeries from the end of this month.
