Flawless Women ad posted by Dove on Craigslist

Dove had been known for their campaign for Real beauty featuring real women with their real curves but their good image had been under threat when an ad for “Flawless Women” were posted on Craigslist purportedly by Dove. The ad seeks for women with flawless skin that is well groomed with nice bodies that are naturally fit and not too athletic or curvy. This is a bit too strict of a requirement from Dove and the ad had been scrutinized.

Dove’s spokesperson said that the casting notice hasn’t been approved by their team and they will take the necessary steps to prevent something like this from happening again. They appreciate that the ad was brought to their attention. The spokesperson also added that they believe that the images for Dove demonstrates that real beauty comes in different shapes, color and size as well as age and they remain with their commitment to keep this image in all of their advertising.

A media commentator also said that since the ad was written in almost all caps with exclamation marks, which is quite inappropriate and unprofessional, shouldn’t have been taken seriously.


Elusive dog tracked down thanks to Craigslist

Linda McDowell doesn’t know where to start looking for her 5 year old dog named Bo. He ran away when he got treated in a veterinary hospital after he was bitten by a pit bull. For some reason, he just bolted out of there and this devastated Linda.

She started putting up fliers around the clinic but had no luck, she even posted an ad on Craigslist on its lost and found section but didn’t have much luck until a woman named April Daily saw the dog as her own dog started barking so she looked out the window and saw this cute dog. He hides a lot so they couldn’t catch him and they couldn’t check his name tag.

They tried searching for lost dogs on Craigslist but thought there was no listing until at the last moment, there it was a picture of Bo. Her husband Shane started crying out this is the dog as it looks exactly like the dog that was hiding on the bushes. They immediately called up Linda and she went to their house and camped out waiting for Bo. Bo didn’t come back so she’s still looking for her dog who she said is totally devoted to her. The Daily family lives in Stetson Hills so he might be just near the area. Email Linda if you find him at [email protected]
