contest to guess the
date, number and time
for the birth of the puppies,
we met a new friend.
He has such an incredible true story
about his life that
we are turning our blog over
to him today.
He has no blog.
This is his life story
as told to us
Sweet William the Scot.
Yes you can tell our story. If it could help just one puppy or human from being hurt it would be an honor.
To think that Puppy Mills are now in cahoots with what you would consider high end neighborhoods is just another low blow for animal lovers.
eBay directs you to eBay Classified ads.
Tonight there are five Scottish Terrier ads.
I am sure some of those are honorable people,
but in my case it ended with a terrible Puppy Mill.
Where Sweet William was purchased you were able to look at the adult male, but the female was created. They said she did not like people looking at her puppies and that her milk had dried up early. I got Sweet William two days short of six weeks. When he was given to me by a friend, I noticed his gait was off, and when I inquired I was hung up on. There in began my search, which I finished the telling of in our e-mail to you.
I was glad to see on your side bar abolish puppy mills. My Lee was so so lost and sad when she lost her other two Scots that a friend bought me to try and help her. Lee knew right away something was wrong. Even though I came from a wonderful $300,000 home with two beautiful Scots at six weeks that was not my true story. A puppy mill was my background. They took me there to sell me. My Lee sent for my AKC papers and she found out I was inbred. I sadly have dysplasia of both front legs. Lee has taken me to two specialist, but they can't fix me.
My Lee had a hard time getting their exact address till she found the worse sick puppy for sale on e-bay in Ohio and acted like she was really interested in buying. She took the pictures to the local Humane Society and wrote and called for three months. The AKC took away their right to register Scotties and the Humane Society cleaned them up and checks on them. So please tell people to stay alert to puppy mill scams!
to do your research
when searching for a puppy or dog.
When our Mom was looking for a black female,
she had a lady who wanted
to meet her at a service station
and sell her the dog,
even though our Mom
wanted to go to the lady's home
to get it.
This threw up a "red flag"
and our Dad said
for Mom to keep searching,
even if she had to wait.
We are so happy that she did,
because we love our sweet Lilly so much.
We know you all will join us in encouraging
Sweet William and his peep, Lee,
to start a blog.
They have a voice
we will all support them.
