So I'm already crying because I am thinking about the Swiss Air Tragedy, and then I click on an email and find out that September 20th is Puppy Mill Awareness Day - and I watch the below video that's associated with the website that's been built to draw momentum around the day:
It is of course centred in Pennsylvania, USA - the centre of puppy mills in the US - but it would be nice if we could get some press up here seeing as how we've had some news stories about the ill effects of their product in the news lately. We'll see what we can come up with. Press about it might change one or two more people's minds about where is a good place to find their next companion animal, anyway.
The website for the Puppy Mill Awareness day can be found here - "awarenessday.org" - spread the word - and it's September 20th, 2008
