First time it happened to me...

So I went to Petsmart to buy the puppies some balls to play with. Outside the store on the bench was a lady with 2 gorgeous beagle pups. I couldn't resist the urge to get a puppy-fix. But I was also intensly curious. See, my good friend is on a mission to find her boys a beagle pup (and since I am dog-crazy, I am doing everything in my power to help!). I know every beagle pup in rescue in the surrounding towns and the 2 males that are available from one of the local breeders. LOL. These two pups were not on my radar, so to speak.
"They're adorable. Did you just get them? How old? They're littermates, yes?"
She told me 12 weeks old and they were brother and sister.
Now I'm all confused.
"Wait, where did you get them??"
"Animal Kingdom."
Oh God. I had to excuse myself so not to speak. I felt sick and my heart hurt. Sure, they may not be puppy mill pups, but they *might*. I just couldn't believe there was a person out there who didn't know not to buy at a puppy store.

There are far too many people who don't know, or don't care. Otherwise, this wouldn't be allowed. Why doesn't PETA work on making it illegal to sell pups in pet stores?

What a worthy cause this would be!
