This is a new one for me. I've heard all kinds of excuses to justify buying dogs in pet stores, from liberating them to "well what's it matter?" but I finally got my first one that actually left me speechless for a little while. She actually said, seriously now, that the breeder that supplied the dogs to Petland was FDA registered and sanctioned. These are the people we are allowing to vote, own live animals, and breed themselves. I know that may sound harsh, but I don't really care.
