A while back we talked about pet-shops selling kittens and puppys,I proudly said we have none in Oakville.
Well,I was wrong,In our Home-Depot plaza,there is a big pet-store called Pets&More and displayed on their window is a big sign,kittens and puppys for sale :mad:
I did not go inside,can't deal with it,just wanted to let you know I was wrong :mad:

OMG really Anita I WOULD have gone inside and asked them where they get them from!! Jerks!!

I never go into any pet stores. It makes me ill.:(
I have asked where the puppies come from. "Private breeders" was the answer. Translation: Backyard breeders and puppymills.

I say that now, that I would have gone inside but you know...maybe I wouldn't have! I'm all brave her right now because it upset me.

Yes Luba,I am not able to,it's makes me too upset.The last time a few years back,I was in a Pet-Shop seeing large puppies in small cages,I cried all the way home.That particualr store HS shut down,but I have a feeling these are the same owners,they just moved.But it is a HUGE store,maybe the conditions are better,the puppies and kittens are probably still from BYB and Mills :mad:

Well ladies,I had to go to the mall....... :D
Guess where I made a stop in??????LOL
Yup,the pet store.It wasn't crowded at all..And Kyra was not with me... :D
A young woman was asking about the Shih Tzus....Well she asked how much.Of course the price is $988...She asked what's included in the price.
2 sets of shots and a vet visit.
So I had to ask a few questions.
Are they not s/n before they go.Or do you have a coupon or something you give out?..Answer,NO...Me,well that's just great.I said at least when you adopt from the SPCA,they are s/n before they go to new homes.He had nothing to say...Figures... :rolleyes:
So I ask another question....The purebred pups,do they come registered....Answer,NO....So I made a comment to that...I said do you know it is against the law to sell a purebred without papers....He had a dumb look on his face.....
This woman was just watching me.....LOL
Then I said that the majority of these puppies were way to young to be away from their mom...That's when I made my most famous comment.... :D
I said,oh yeah,I almost forgot,these puppies come from puppy mills.The womans mouth dropped.And the young lad who works there said no they are not....So I had to argue with him for a bit...Ok,alot.....
Lets just say the woman walked out of the store with me...... :D :D

The only problem is,what happens to these poor little guys when they are not sold,when they get too big for their cages? :(
Through no fault of theirs,they would be doomed if noone buys them :(
