Dog Whisperer Puppy Mill episode

This Friday Cesar is doing a new show with a couple dogs rescued from puppy mills this Friday, May 8, 9 PM Eastern.
He helps with the rehabilitation of a couple dogs with human aggression issues and obsessive licking, something my Maltese has. He then goes on a ride-a-long with a group as they work to shut down a "kennel" AKA puppymill.

I think it will be interesting to see his point of view, as he always preaches of dogs living in the moment.

I agree Beverly, it will be interesting to see his perspective. Thanks for the info. I wonder why so many shows lately on puppymills?

Our local pet store selling puppie closes down...

One of the positive aspects of the recession is that the biggest seller of puppies at a pet store is going out of business. Alana and I were planning on protesting that place...and now our wish came true. I hope they turn the place into a pet spa or something positive. Its a huge piece of land on very expensive real estate in Hermosa Beach...so it will probably be something like a hotel.

I'm looking forward to this upcoming show. I watch Cesar regularly,unless I am working,then I try to catch it late or in re-runs. I'll be really sad if I miss this.

In the city that I live in, Lincoln, 250,000 people, we are very lucky that there are very few dogs in our shelter and no small or medium dogs. When they do get a small dog in, it is adopted before the pictures are posted on the website. Unfortunately this keeps our single pet store that sells puppies in business, the Pet Doctor (can you believe that name?).

Today while Beth and I were at the small dog, dog park with the 6 dogs, I heard 3 different groups of people reference this place as to where their dogs came from.
It is so frustrating and infuriating to me. I know that many of these people, if not all of them, would not buy their puppies there or shop there if they knew they were supporting puppy mills, they just need to be educated, but it sure can get discouraging sometimes.
There were actually 2 different families there with "Scottie-doodles" from this place that they figured were from 2 different litters. "Oh I bet they are brothers from the same breeder!" the women squealed with delight, as if there was some nice old man sitting in a nice warm house raising "Scottie-doodles" to take on over to the Pet Doctor for strangers to buy.

I have decided I want a shirt that I can wear whenever I go there that has a simple message about not buying puppies from a pet store. Pet shops puppies = puppy mill puppies, something like that...has anyone seen anything like that?

I already look like that crazy dog lady, now I'll be sounding like the crazy dog lady too so I think a nice tee shirt might get the message across best.

Beverly-You can probably make your own shirt on Cafe Press. That's a great idea especially if you wear it to places like the park where you know people are that have puppies from a store.

It's wonderful, hopefully more people will be informed so less people will buy from pet stores.

I hope so, I didn't know about puppy mills either. Luckily we didn't go to a pet store but I'm sure most people don't have any idea about the mills.

I want a car magnet that says that.
Cesar was on Fox News this morning talking about the episode, so I'm really happy it's getting some exposure.
