A puppy store is opening by my house
I didn't even think pet stores existed except NYC and Los Angeles, but someone told me that there is one in San Francisco... I thought that was one good thing that PETA had eliminated around here.
The other day, my husband came home and asked me to get in the car because he wanted to show me something. The store isn't even set up, but they had a pen of small puppies by the doorway that they were selling anyway. There was a Yorkie, a Poodle, and definitely one Havanese in there, as well as a couple of others. I couldn't get out of the car to go look closer because the whole thing surprised me.
The place is being set up in a very cute, frou-frou look as if it was going to be some upscale boutique. I'll go back after the store is ready for visitors (even though they welcomed my husband to come inside when he first stopped by) and ask some questions.
Knowing the likelihood of where those puppies came from, it makes me sad, but I can sure see why people go bonkers for pet store puppies. They were adorable. I'm bummed to see them there because of the crates, cages & conditions and lack of socialization they represent.
