Anyway, if you'd do my puppy a favor and head over there and look for Casey's picture and vote to let the world know he's a FIVE-STAR dog!
To add, I say that PSP is my favorite pet store for a variety of reasons:
- They don't sell dogs or cats. This is huge, as the overpopulation problem should convict ALL pet stores to never sell dogs or cats. Also, pet store puppies come from puppy mills, most often with inhumane conditions. Not at all what I want to support- Even if I'm not buying a puppy, I won't shop at a store that sells them. Period.
- They sell good food. Grocery stores and big chains sell the national brand name dog foods that are usually junk. Casey came to us eating some of that food- and horribly overweight and itchy because he was allergic to the sub-par ingredients. PSP has a great selection of good foods and pet supplies, and I get excited about that.
- They host community events. There's this photo contest, sure, but I have also participated in the low-cost well-pet clinics that come to my store every month or two, and the $5 nail clipping every Wednesday. They encourage good, healthy pet ownership and make it affordable. This is in addition, of course, to the weekly adoption events that happen at the store. We looked seriously at some of the rescue dogs at the store on the weekends before finding Casey.
Now, Go Vote!
If you haven't noticed, I've been in a blogging funk as of late. I have a list of things I need to blog about, but haven't been in a writing mood- as the days get shorter and colder, all I want to do is bake and hibernate. Muffins, pizza crust, and a good amount of sleep are what came of the weather this weekend. I will hopefully be back soon!
