Oh no!! Yes obviously it doesnt matter to me what you get with them as I would never entertain the buisness of buying a puppy out of a window like a loaf of bread :mad:

Totally agree with Sallymum as going back will only serve to make you even more concerned, so try to enjoy what is left of your honeymoon. Where are you if it is ok to ask as I must have missed your earlier post?

I went to a Pet Shop near my sister's house at the weekend and they had 3 little Westies in there. I asked where they were kept in the evenings & weekends and she said that they used to take them home with them but they were not allowed anymore and now they go into a large room so they have space to runaround, but are all alone! I felt so sad for them all, what happens when they only have 1 left. I could have cried.

To make matters worse, she said she had 3 little Cav's coming in next weekend and was charging £650 each.

Hasten to add I wont be using that Pet Shop again.

That is so distressing and can well understand how you feel. I came accross a similar situation once in a pet shop, was so distressed that I felt it should be brought to the attention of the RSPCA. Thank goodness I did and within a week the shop was forbidden to sell dogs and were threatened with closure if they didn't comply. I just could not sleep at the very thought of these creatures being neglected and left alone, so am glad I took action and could have the pleasure of seeing the results.

BTW, in case anyone is concerned, forgot to mention that the dogs in question were taken to a good shelter and found good homes. I called RSPCA to enquire about their welfare and to know what action had been taken. At least there was a happy ending. Why should these cruel people be allowed to get away with this kind of thing? Cruelty to animals in any form should not be tolerated and has to be stamped out at every given opportunity.Only last week I was left again with little option but to speak with a neighbour as tactfully as possible about the fact that her little dog was left out all day in freezing conditions and rain with little or no shelter. He cried all day long,so in the end I simply warned her that he could be taken from her if it was reported. He has since been brought indoors and I see he is now being taken for walks. What really makes such people have dogs if they either have no insight into their needs or are too cruel to care? Does it somehow make them feel powerful to be able to have such control over a defenceless creature's life or are they genuinely sick people? It is just so sad to see God's creatures treated so badly when they expect so little and give so much to humans if given the chance.

man is interested in one thing - man!

Man has evolved to be egotistical,self-centered and greedy.Man always wants more and has got to thinking he is superior.

I abhor the way the world is going.It shocks and astounds me every time I watch an advert about how bears are mistreated in some parts of europe.It kills me when I hear of puppies being dumped in a rubbish chute for instance.EVERY SINGLE TIME!!
You`d think Id have toughened up by now but no....every time I pass a deserted site I listen for pups cries.I know this sounds strange but Id hate to think there was a pup dumped and because I wasnt alert and couldnt hear him he wasnt found!Perhaps Im a little paranoid but I cant help it because I am aware it happens all the time :(
