Attention Japan: This is not a poodle

This is downright hilarious. A scam in Japan resulted in hundreds of Japanese people buying sheep because they thought they were poodles. The story contains this incredible line: One couple said they became suspicious when they took their “dog” to have its claws trimmed and were told it had hooves.
What? The Japanese, who are known for their technological prowess, are only “suspicious” when they discover that their pet dog has hooves? And did the vet they took the “poodle” to not recognize that it was a sheep? Of course, the best part is that poodles totally suck and sheep are kind of funny, so these people were better off with sheep anyway.
