National Puppy Day!

How can you let a face like this suffer?
(never mind the no fetching order)

Today is National Puppy Day.  

"Right now there are thousands of puppies in shelters and rescues all over the country that are in need of a forever home. National Puppy Day supports the ban of Puppy Mills!! 
Please don't buy from pet stores! 
These puppies come from cruel and horrid conditions!! If you're looking for a pure breed puppy, there are pure breed rescues all over the country filled with available young dogs for adoption."

I would like to add to this that if you don't adopt a dog, know your breeder.  Know where the puppies come from, how they are cared for and the practices of the breeder.  Our little puppy dog came from a breeder in hopes that she would be a prize hunting dog.  Or a least A hunting dog.  But until people eat tennis balls she's not going to be much help.  We love her so much!  You can bet that when it comes time to get her a little friend we will research the heck out of what kind of dog we want to get and where to get it from!  

If you have a puppy, give 'em and extra big hug and kiss tonight, so they know they are loved!
