I have to admit that the past two years, as a member here, have been the most eye opening times. Prior to my friend getting a Havanese, I never heard of them. I only wanted one because of the friendly loving nature of the dog. I was just lucky enough (and I mean REALLY LUCKY) to have found a reasonable breeder who had wonderful dogs. Had I not been steered in her direction, I might have gone to a pet store and bought a Havanese! Years ago I would have thought that pet stores were the "good guys" vs the people who wanted to sell you pups at their house. Call it naive, but that was how I was "educated". It is all in the education. Thankfully Oprah is letting people know who the "good guys" are. Thankfully, the puppy mill issues are getting to the public - Thankfully some of the pet stores are "getting the message", but it will be a long road, and we just have to keep plugging to get the word out to the public that pet stores buy from Mills, and will use ANY means (cribs) to make a sale!!!!
