Thread: Why Do I Do It to Myself???

  1. #1

    Default Why Do I Do It to Myself???

    I went to our local pet store today to get some shampoo, a new collar and some Advocate (ended up getting Sentinal Spectrum but thats a whole other thread!).

    Anyway, I couldn't help but go and look at the puppies...

    Labrador X Spaniel - Small, fluffy, ADORBALE!!!

    German Shephard - So sweet...in a box smaller than Poppy's crate!

    Maltese X ****-Zu - Again, cute and fluffy!!!

    Labrador X Poodle - Again, so sweet and curly!!!

    It makes me so sad to see them sitting in their glass boxes. I wish I could take them all home but know thats not logical nor a good idea!!!

    Do you ever feel that way?

    Know exactly how you feel Amy.

    Which is why I go to produce stores these days. Generally everything for the pet, at a better price and no puppies in the window.

    That way I can't get angry while I watch people impulse buy, paying, in a lot of instances more than I charge for a pure bred dog where you get to meet the parents, have life time support and a life time return.

    I wish we had something like that where we are. The only non-pet pet store is PGD and its SO exxy! This is a big warehouse type place so almost like a produce store but it has pets too!

    I won't go to pet shops where they sell pups and kittens, so it's either petbarn or similar, just as well coz I'd get thrown out otherwise!

    We go to the petshed that's here. They have fish, birds & mice but no pups or kittens.

    I don't think I could go near a petstore nowadays. Too heartbreaking to see those poor animals cooped up and knowing that they were most likely the result of people just in it for profit.

    definitely avoid shops that sell puppies and kittens

    except maybe to take a photo to send to shopping centre management and the RSPCA.

    Same here.. We got a huge Produce Store at Capalaba and it sells anything you can think of for pets and farm animals and it's way cheaper than any pet shop..
