puppy farm background information
I've added a new section which includes a piece I wrote for the Irish Times on the puppy farm problem here -- which arose from information that came up as I began to research the cavalier breed and breeders. I had no idea that Ireland was the source for so many cavalier puppies, reared in these horrific environments then sent abroad, typically to the US and UK but also sold in Ireland in places like the Buy&Sell and newspaper ads.
Also I added in the story of Mitzy and Grace the rescue breeding bitches, as this is a particularly moving story and real example of how these dogs are treated.
The new section is here: http://www.cavaliertalk.com/phpBB2/viewforum.php?f=31
