I was wrong..

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
I did not go inside,can't deal with it,just wanted to let you know I was wrong

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.

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

Well ladies,I had to go to the mall.......

Guess where I made a stop in??????LOL

Yup,the pet store.It wasn't crowded at all..And Kyra was not with me...

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...

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....

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......

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
