    This is so appalling. What really irks me is there seem to be so many people who do this sort of thing. I once met a man with a really cute little dog who he'd rescued--his was an adult animal, rather than pups like yours, but it was the same sort of story except in that case the dog had clearly been abused--and he said "You wouldn't believe anyone would do that to a dog, would you?" and I was forced to say "Unfortunately, I can believe it, because I've heard too many similar stories."

    Good on you, Gin. At least your puppies' story will have a happy ending. Obviously, you can't keep them all--or perhaps not even any--but at least they have some hope of finding someone who will appreciate them. Such cuties!

    Cheers,
    Rob

    Gin, how are our puppies today?

    Hmmmmmmmm.... we should name them. Let's see..... Phal, Paph, Van(da) and Catt (a dog named catt??)

    I hope they're doing well. Are you totally smitten with them yet, because I sure am.

    Gin, there is a place in heaven for gentle, kind people like you. I'm so glad you found good homes for them.

    hadn't seen this post before...good job Gin! I can never understand why these things happen either. There are shelters that can find pups homes.
