Thought those of you who missed it would like a chance to see the BBC Rogue Traders programme
and here's link to the programme. (Not sure about the safety of a terrier on a motorbike, but she DID seem to enjoy it!!??)

Awful wasnt it. But they got some important points across and viewers might now think twice about buying a pup unseen over the internet, and from places where the pups mums are not around. I think Mr J will have put a lot of people off the larger establishments with his rather strange behaviour.

Poor little puppies though, so terribly sad for them.

It was very sad, l was just willing them to walk through that door the one with no entry on but did you see how fast the fella came running across in case they went inside

One thing that confused me - why put a pup down from gastro? Parvo I understand ... but gastro? I know puppies can die from it, but I didn't know vets would put them down for having it!

I made Mark watch it as he couldnt get his head round the differance between someone who likes on a farm & breeds dogs & a puppy farm. He gets it now & now realises why I get so upset about these things!

I was very annoyed that the RSPCA woulnd go to that guys farm untill the following day - I think I would have said if they arent coming we'll just call in a local vet instead.
