Puppies for sale!  Are you looking for a puppy to bring home? 

Did you do a google search and find a thousand websites with cute cuddly puppies running in a field of flowers?  Did that website impress you?  They had pictures of the family holding the puppies and sometimes they had the puppies sitting on velvet blankets.  They must be really loving and caring people.  And oh look, you can just give them a visa number, pick out the dog and they will have it shipped to you!  Wow!  

The pretty pictures are … (8 comments)
