Bel Air Pet Store shut down!

This was all over the news tonight. While it is a temporary shut down, it is drawing a lot of news in the wealthy areas of LA!

Okay I just watched the 11pm news and they interviewed another pet store to say they guarantee their pups for 2 weeks

News like this makes me so happy. I hope they put many many more out of business.

I have been to that pet store. It is in a small, but very upscale enclave of stores and sells pricey pet accessories as well.

Another pet store in LA that sells dogs with loads of health problems (and presumably from puppy mills) is the one in Beverly Center. I had a friend who bought a puppy from that store (I was shocked anyone would actually buy a puppy at a mall, but it was too late for me to educate her as she already had the puppy before I knew she was getting it). That dog had tons of health problems.

So sad for the dogs!

My daughter got her first Dachsie from a pet store. They gave her a 1 yr health guarantee. She got free vet check-up at their vet. He said she was fine. Two days later, she developed a real bad case of kennel cough.

Thank goodness she is fine and my DD lucked out with her. Her second one she went to a breeder.

I'm sitting here with tears in my eyes as I read about that poor female whose leg had to be amputated. The perpetrators of this misery should be forced to live in these deplorable conditions, in cages, without comfort of heat or cooling, exposed to the elements.

This makes me so angry. All for the almighty dollar. Thank goodness that got this one. Now on to all the rest.
