My husband and I have two precious cats and have been wanting to get a puppy for some time. Because I am a SAHW at the moment, we figure I could put the time into training one before Little Boy gets here. I'll be honest. I really really want a puppy. I don't care if it is purebred or whatnot and I would really like to adopt one from a shelter. Sure, purebreds are cute and all, but that isn't a big deal to me.
DH, on the other hand, is very picky about getting a dog. He wants specific breeds and he wants them from a certified breeder. I understand that he wants to know what we are getting and how it was "raised." But, to me, plenty of animals are "mutts" and didn't come from great homes and are still good pets.
The whole horrible pet store thing, I understand, but that doesn't mean those poor puppies don't deserve homes.
Anyways, we found out that the Navy Exchange Pet Store is getting Golden Retriever puppies from their "breeder" in March(which is around the time we wanted to get a pup if we could find one). I would love to give one a home, but DH sat me down and read an article to me about "Pet Store Puppies" and told me he didn't want to buy one of their puppies.
I'm really sad, but I think I may over reacting... Someone talk to me.
