Here is the January 23, 2012 Life with Dogs Post:
Normally I am a huge fan of Omaha business and anything dog.
Petland, at least here in Omaha, and in many other areas of the country, received its puppies from puppy mills. Their semi trucks came to deliver the puppies to 120th and Center during the night, I assume so as not to disturb the puppy lovers. Maybe just because it fit their schedule best though.
I am SO happy they are leaving.
I wrote about pet stores and puppy mills on Life with Dogs on August 22, 1011.

One of my “New Year’s Resolutions” last year was to shut down puppy mills everywhere. That, of course, is silly and overreaching and NOT a one person goal-not even something one person can decide or maybe even influence. So please join me in re-resolving this year…Silly, overreaching and group goals are three of my favorite things.
