For dog food and the like I go to the big box pet stores which invite you to bring along your dogs. More often than not Preston (my Border Terrier) comes along and something starts to strike me. These stores have clear non-abuse of animals policies and typically make you sign something effectively saying you won't use small animals as food items (think rats and snakes). These signs are typically located on top of the cages of weasels or rats which happen to have the animals near terrier nose level. I just know sometime I will be asked to leave after Preston has his paws on the front of the cage and his nose to the glass smiling at the little toy weasels. Anyone ever notice this too?
