Where did you get that dog!!

From today’s headlines:  West Hollywood bans dog, cat sales

By CHRISTINA HOAG, Associated Press Writer – Tuesday, February 16, 2010

The city of West Hollywood has decided to put a leash on dog and cat sales.

Now can you imagine this. While walking your dog or carrying your cat, the West Hollywood police pull next to you.

“Where did you get that animal?”

“I bought from a breeder in Riverside.”

“Do you have proof of purchase?

“Yes, the sales slip and certificate are in my wallet”

After the public safety officer reviews, the material he says,

“I’m sorry [at least apologetic], but you’re under arrest. You can only have a cat or dog here that was conceived in an ally, no pedigreed animals permited in our town.”

The point of this article is obviously the fact that we need to be careful in our goal to right one wrong… just to cause another.  Puppy Mills and Kitty Factories are horrible , abusive and wrong, but there is always a balance in every situation.  Let us not create a black market of sick dogs and cats from even worse facilities or a shortage of purebred pets that people want.  Let us think the problems through and work toward sensible solutions.  Hmmm… I think that advice might work in Washington DC, as well!?! 😉
