    I did get a good counter dose of fluffiness today, though: Went to get bird food and in the pet shop was a young girl being cuted out by 2 freshly goomed puppies. The whole place was on the verge of exploding into candyfloss.

    Came home and tortured my lodgers to regain some balance.
    The crowd: "Yes! We are all individuals!"
    Lone voice: "I'm not."

    As you do on a good day .
    You guys still sell puppies and kittens in pet stores? Not allowed to anymore in Australia. I think birds and gold fish are still sold.

    Most pet shops in England mostly sell rodents and fish.

    So the RSPCA hasnt put a total ban yet? Anything with fur will eventually be banned. Which means the average puppy now is between 1 and 4 grand. I kid you not. If uou dont believe me look up buying a dog in australia. Trading post, dog sites etc.

    Not sure if it actually banned but I don't recall seeing a puppy or kitten for sale in a pet shop for ages. No: this pet shop did pet grooming (see typo above, "gooming") and the puppies were there for that.

    mostly banned here as well, we do see the pet stores set up "events" where they have "adoption days" which is fantastic. They will bring in a few cats or dogs (mostly cats) and kind of feature them with hopes of getting them into good homes.
    We have the SPCA and the animal shelters here screaming for people to adopt pets.
    And yes there are the breeders.... and the wannabe breeders here and a purebred is available if you want to put a second mortgage on your home.

    Re: "a counter dose of fluffiness... "

    I can never understand why some people spend small fortunes on a particular breed of dog for just a house pet, or burglar deterrent, when there are thousands of mixed breed dogs, and even some discarded pure bred dogs that make lovely house pets. We have always had a rescue dog except our very first, which we were given as it was the offspring of my mother's lovely mixed-breed dog.

    What amazes me is the cost of a rescue dog. Between $300 and$800 . Unless you get an older dog but then youre left with vet bills of an aging dog.

    When we got our first rescue dog back in 1978, it cost us around £30 and that included all his injections and a name tag for his collar. Prices increased and it cost a lot more each time we got a rescue dog, but they were still a hellova lot cheaper than buying a pedigree animal, and you were giving an abandoned dog a 'forever family'. Our latest dog, Jessica, a German Shepherd/collie cross cost us around £160 and that included all injections, identity chip (since made a legal requirement), a name tag for her collar and a first installment in a 'lost dog, search' club membership. We have carried on with that membership and also have Jessie insured and we also pay a monthly subscription for a vet club (pays for all her monthly worm and tick/flea tablets and twice yearly M.O.T. inspection). It costs us quite a bit each month one way or another, we are pensioners so we have to be careful with our money but she is worth every penny, bless her heart. She is a lovely dog, full of personality, character and always ready for fun - she also 'talks', which is hilarious.
