For every person born in the U.S., nine dogs are born and 45 cats. Rescue! Do not buy pet store dogs. If you want a purebred dog, check the AKC for a reputable breeder.

There's no need to make people of dubious reputation rich.  I'm not talking about reputable breeders who allow their dogs to have pups every few years.  I'm talking about the beastly, horrific conditions of dogs bred constantly in puppy mills, kept in abhorrent cages, with no freedom and no life to live.

Yesterday for Mother's Day, I took my cockerpoo with me to see if we could make a match at HeartsforHounds, a non-profit rescue group in Long Beach, California.

While we walked many dogs we saw on their Internet page, the one who surprised us as stealing our hearts is a tiny little thing (10 pounds), a spaniel-terrier mix.

She's about a year old and bounces around the house.  She is so happy to have a home and to be loved.

I had seen an ad for a Goldendoodle, a dog I am very interested in. But the area it was coming from told me "puppy mill," and I will not pay $1000 for a dog whose mama has been mistreated. 

We love our new girl.  We hope the states will take action to shut down puppy mills.

Bouncing is misleading. More like jump, jump, squirm, squirm, run, run, play, play, zzzzzzzzzzzz p
