“It drives me crazy: People say they love dogs – and they do love their dog – but what are they thinking? When people purchase from a pet store, don’t they realize they’re perpetuating puppy mills? Look at the bigger picture! Or in New York City, blue French Bulldogs are now a trend, selling for $8000. Ok, really? Do you know how many shelter dogs can be saved with that kind of money?” – Andrea Arden, regular guest on the Today show, trainer, author of Barron’s Dog Training Bible. From USA Weekend, Dec. 23-25, 2011 by Steve Dale.
