Smart move, Jane. It angers me to see how callous the people are in the video.

For as frustrating HSUS & PETA are, I'm glad they do produce videos like this to enlighten people as to the truth of the origin of the puppies in the cribs & lace in the puppy store windows.

They are. They're going nuts and want to take away breeding rights from everyone....even reputable breeders instead of enforcing the laws they already have on the books.

I feel as you do, Jane, and can't watch many of the videos "out there". I was emotional all morning and sometimes I get so passionate and that I just have to stop and leave this stuff alone for a bit.

I mean, there are worse crimes out there, I know. There are children in worse situations, women used and sold across the world, slavery, genocides....... all that and more. Some may say "Why bother with dogs? They're just animals!" The Amish consider them as livestock so see no wrong in these auctions and the treatment of the dogs. I mean, I'm sure there are many, many causes out there that need all kinds of attention. I dunno........ there's just something about pet shops and mills that really, really get to me.

Maybe it's because somewhere deep inside, I have the tiniest hope that things CAN change!

I couldn't watch the video because I just ate and didn't want to . I had to stop in town tonight and against my better judgement, I walked past Shake-A-Paw. All those poor furbabies . As I walked past one cage (I was outside the store looking in the window) one adorable little pup saw me and just looked at me with the saddest eyes. I had to leave then, because it just made me so upset. If HSUS and PETA are making these videos, why aren't they going after these people? Why are they devoting their time to do away with reputable breeders?

Jill, I had no idea about Tess being a puppy mill breeder. Poor little baby. I'm so glad you rescued her!!!!!

Marj, thanks for sharing the pictures and video, although it was heartbreaking. It really makes you think about the poor parents of these pet shop puppies. I really hope things will change. I was shocked to learn how the Amish treat these dogs. I had this image of them being such peaceful, wholesome people. I knew absolutely nothing about puppy mills before joining this forum, and I have really learned so much.

Marj, I'm glad you keep on top of this and keep us in touch, too. I couldn't stand to watch the's just too awful, and I can't bear it.

Thank you Marj for posting this----there is not a person on this planet who doesn't need to see this,as sad as it is. Just think how wonderful it would be if we could just make everyone view it and finally "get it". We could put those nasty millers out of business.

Michele, I don't understand the full motive for HSUS, but I know PETA wants to get rid of all animals as companions. They are going after ALL breeders, not just the ones who have ethics.

As for the Amish, I believe they hold firmly to the Bibical phrase of having "dominion over the animals."
