I never heard of it and I probably couldn't watch it.
I can't even watch Bambi...and that's a cartoon...

People who run puppy mills should be locked in the small places for many many years without any parole.

I have heard about this one, but not sure I can watch it... I broke down during "One Nation Under Dog"... it haunted me for awhile. But I will probably look for it on interlibrary loan...

I am grateful that almost all of my friends are educated and know about puppy mills and many of them rescue their pets. However, I saw recently that two of my sorority sisters both purchased their bulldogs from likely puppy mills/BYB... although they did not realize/find out until afterwards, it INFURIATED me that they did not do the research to buy from a reputable breeder or rescued a bulldog.

I almost got on my soapbox and scolded them about their foolishness and the fact that their ignorance killed a dog that they could have saved, but they are both intelligent women who I believe just made a mistake and now know to do thorough research before adopting another dog. One of them rescued a mixed breed soon after buying her bulldog pup.

What infuriates me even more are the people who 'roll their eyes' at these statistics. I posted a picture of a gas chamber on my Facebook page and a college friend actually commented: "eye roll" and I immediately defriended him. He was angry because he bought his goldendoodle from a breeder because the rescue group asked an "insensitive" question (why don't you have children? their infant died when she was only a month old) and felt that my posting on important statistics was directed at people like him who chose not to rescue.

All of my friends, family, colleagues, etc know about the Puppy Mills/BYB - used to have long speeches, that bored some of them, but nobody ever complained in my house. I honestly think they are afraid I would go on forever.
The thing is I really cannot watch these things on TV. It's not that I close eyes before reality or that I ignore the problems....it's just too upsetting for me.
I do volunteer in the local no-kill shelter. I'm having a hard time sometimes, but at least there the doggies are taken care of and not abused.
I don't know, if I'm making any sense here.....I just don't want people here to think I'm weird or childish or that I ignore the problem.
