|Pet stores make me laugh! They THINK they are knowledgble on their mechandise, but I think, if it breathes, they are WAY OUT TO LUNCH! The should stick to selling accesories for your pet...not the pet!
It is certainly a sin that pet stores carry dogs, cats, exotic birds, etc. And like most people have stated, most of these aren't it good health to begin with, come from puppy mills, "bird mills", etc. These stores are soley out to make a buck. Person buys a unhealthy puppy...gets tired of caring for it, takes it to the pound, and the cycle starts again.
Just buying fish from a pet store can be interesting! Certain fish can't be in the same tank as other fish, but pet store people will constantly allow a person to buy...say a goldfish and put it in the same tank as a neon, or those little sharks. So why do people think that their $400 plus dog will be OK, if fish (at $15-$20 are far from OK). As far as I'm concerned, maybe the governments should spend their time and money to prevent the commercial sale of cats and dogs instead of trying to ban breeds.
