Sam here. Mom came home GRUMPY today. She's been spending days trying to figure out what to feed us and finally decided so she had hunted down where to buy the Evangers canned food and the Evo dry. There's not a lot of places around her that have it in stock. Soooo...she drives the 25 minutes to this store she's never heard of and is pretty excited cause they have all the food she wanted to get for us plus some other goodies. Her whole cart is loaded up and she was ready to drop some major bones (that's dollars for you humans) when she went around the corner to the back of the store.
There's a whole wall of little puppies in glass boxes, Boxers, Pugs, JRTs, Labs, Schnauzers, you name it with BIG price tags of $499 to almost a thousand bones. She got up close to the little Pug puppy that reminded her EXACTLY of Suki and saw that he had gunk coming out of his eyes and nose. The store manager was standing there so she asked him where he got his puppies from but he wouldn't tell her except to say "a reputable local breeder". She told him that the Pug puppy was sick and needed help and he kept insisting he was fine and that he comes with a vet visit and a 30 day guarantee. I guess she kept getting angrier (she has a little temper sometimes) and he kept getting meaner until she told him what he could do with her basket full of stuff. She never was able to get close enough to the other puppies to see if they were sick but she's making phone calls and writing letters to important people to let them know what's going on in there.
We're sad for these dogs and we're sad for us cause we didn't get all our new food. Mom's going to find a reputable place to get us everything we need tomorrow so that's ok. Hopefully someone will help those pups too.
Hope everydog out there is doing ok. We have a busy weekend planned around here so maybe our blog won't be so boring anymore. :)
Kisses - Samantha
