What's That Smell?

Last weekend's protest had a couple of good wins. One local woman and her daughter thought better of going into the store after hearing a little about where the dogs come from. It's always nice when someone listens to what we have to say and understands that it is founded in fact with supporting documentation.

The other win was when a young couple went into the store only to emerge a couple of minutes later looking to hear our side of the story. They said the smell in the store was overwhelming and that they felt uncomfortable just being inside. They swore they'd steer clear of pet stores in the future...especially after seeing some of the USDA reports on breeders used by Puppies of Westport.

Prominent Westport Blogger Probes Puppy Store

Dan Woog, author of 16 books, award winning columnist and an everyday blogger in the area stopped by the weekly protest outside Westport's shameful outlet for puppy mill dogs this month.

He asked smart questions of the protesters and hopefully shines a light on why Puppies of Westport is nothing more than a store perpetuating a cycle of animal cruelty beyond belief.

Thanks for stopping by Dan. And thanks for covering the community in a way so many local newspapers have forgotten!

And check out the posts on the piece he wrote.
