I think our society needs a huge "Wake-up" call. As a shelter manager, I am going to share a little insight with you all...a view from the inside if you will.First off, all of you breeders/sellers should be made to work in the "back" of an animal shelter for just one day. Maybe if you saw the life drain from a few sad, lost, confused eyes, you would change your mind about breeding and selling to people you don't even know.That puppy you just sold will most likely end up in my shelter when it's not a cute little puppy anymore.

U.S. blood and treasure are spentpropping up
oil-soaked totalitarian regimes in the Middle East, but no one ever
