I sometimes really HATE the area I'm in. :angry: I'm in the middle of PuppyMill He$$. The Amish look at dogs as livestock, even if they aren't a puppymill. I just had an Amish lady come in who was looking for something to kill fleas in their house. Her FOURTEEN year old toy poodle is at the groomer, who will treat her for fleas while she's there, and wanted to breed her! So the lady left her with the groomer! Now the groomer is NOT Amish. I was just speechless. I told the lady to please check with her vet before letting this woman breed her. This poodle has been a family pet in their home her whole life. She said the groomer 'looked her over' and said she would be fine. Yeah right, like a groomer is a vet and really knows...let alone has the poodles best interest at heart. I'm so mad right now I want to call this groomer and rake her over the coals!!! I let this woman know how dangerous I felt this would be for her poodle and at what age most reputable breeders retire their dogs. I even went so far as to say "shame on your groomer!". Needless to say, I don't think this lady or the groomer will ever step foot in my store again.
