Puppy mills have been my strongest pet peeve lately. It seems that I have read so many articles in the paper and on the internet about puppy mills and surprisingly so many have been close to us in Indiana. We watch animal cops on tv and it is so sad to see these things happen to innocent animals.
While standing and talking to Samantha, I could see tables where she and her employes work on the animals. Along the walls were carriers, small and big, to hold the dogs until their owners came back for them. If there was a well behave dog, she would let it out, and the animal could roam around.
As you are watching, you are probably tempted to remove the collar from the puppy. Well, even if it pains your heart, don’t do that. Resist that temptation. The collar is not going to hurt your puppy in anyway.
After two miserable social work jobs and about eight years later, I started writing. First it was public relations on my own, and then on to articles for local Boston weeklies. I wrote after the birth of my first child and kept just going. I loved working on my own terms, the satisfaction of turning in a piece and the delight of seeing my by-line.

As if to prove him wrong, my daughter grabbed the kite and ran with it. The kite sailed into the air as she ran in circles on the sand. A tiny smile made it’s way to Joseph’s face. Then he stomped off the beach and headed toward the bay to catch minnows and hermit crabs.
Constant supervision is required as you figure out what will work best for your dog. Crate training is a great way to house train your puppy if you actively participate and rapidly enforce good behavior. You dog’s crate will also become his sanctuary and help keep him out of mischief.
