Among the things universally found irresistible: bacon sandwiches, a free pass of wacky tobaccy, and cute-ass puppies. We're talking the teacup kind that you find at Petland — those little balls of fur that just about fit between your index finger and thumb. They're so precious that you just might fork down the thousand bucks for one without thinking about what you're supporting. According to the Humane Society of the United States, Petland's pups come straight from Midwest puppy mills. They get there, the Humane Society says, via pet brokers who ship them en masse to Petland stores, where they may live for months in solitary cages before some schlep comes along to buy one. Look away from their cuteness, friend, because your purchase just might support an industry that rivals Dick Cheney in evilness.

Thank you, for saying what I've been trying to tell my friends for a very long time!

I thought they'd banned these "puppy" stores, but I came to FL and found that they were still here. :(

Thank god! For a half a minute, I thought you guys were actually giving this sh*thole a real award. I was just about to drive down there and beat some sense into your entire staff. I accidentally walked into a petland one time not knowing they sold animals. It was like one of those nightmare dream sequences where everything starts spinning very slowly.....It took everything I had not to bash all of the windows in and free the puppies. That place is a pit of evil
