I stopped for fuel in Oklahoma City a couple of months ago and heard over my CB radio something that just frosted my backside.
"Little AKC trucker buddies…we have Yorkies, Bostons and Shih Tzus for $XXX each, kick it on back to..."
Well, I called the guy out on it.I told him on no uncertain terms he was at best a BYB, at worst a for-profit puppy mill and probably had poor quality animals or he wouldn't have to be selling them over the CB to people he hasn't screened. I went into a litany of questions he either couldn't answer or answered wrong to. Like: Did he show his animals? Does he have a spay/neuter contract? What happens if it doesn't work out? Where are the dams and sires? Made him look like the jerk he was.
And he was selling them out of the CB shop across from the Pilot on Morgan road! Apparently, he didn't think there was a driver who knew a thing or two about the AKC and symptoms of puppy milling. Well, I doubt he made any sales that day, but unfortunately, one day isn't enough. I'll lay dollars to donuts he was right back at it the next day.
Well, they sure do get irritated when they catch the proper label! I think I was still being called names as his voice faded into the distance...:D
