Oprah is supposed to be doing a show about puppy mills on April 4. I hate seeing stuff like that, but with her having such a huge fanbase, it might do some good.

I'm no fan of Oprah or her show, but it is true considering how many people watch it hopefully it'll help do some good. There are a lot of people out there who do not fully understand what a puppy mill is or why buying from stores is a bad thing. Even some people have astonished me with their lack of knowledge who work with me at a dog boarding/daycare place.. and the off-leash park.. :frustrated:

I saw the previews of the show when I was watching Oprah yesterday. Don't know if I can watch it. Oprah was disgusted and it looks like she had tears in her eyes. She loves dogs.

It is an eye opener for all those who purchase from pet stores and BYB.

Anyone know how I can see this episode now that it's already aired? There don't seem to be any videos available online.

Hi Dingo, you can watch some of the show on youtube.com just search for oprah puppy mills and you will get too many awful videos of this disgusting practice to watch. Rescued is the way to go.

There is going to be an encore presentation of this show on Thursday, May 29. I don't think I can watch again but anyone who has not seen it...it is worth the watch. Tell your friends too!

I watched this show when it was first on. I have to say that they hardly show you anything, when it comes to the puppy mill world. I have seen A HELL of ALOT worse when I am working.
