When I came up with this idea, I had planned on telling of all the hardships Leda had in the puppy mill. I have since decided not to go into details. This page of the story will be a summary of what she went through in the puppy mill.

Lonely Life

Most of the time I was alone in my cage. I did not like that very much. There were other dogs all around me. We could not touch one another because of the cages. When they would put another dog in with me. I was very happy when he was there. He never stayed with me for long.

The best times were when I was going to have puppies. If you were going to have puppies, you were giving better food to eat and milk. You were put in a room that was much bigger than the cage. They were other mother dogs there, and we were gated off from one another.

The only problem was, once your puppies were old enough; they were taking away. I could not tell you how many puppies I had in all. There were many of them, though. I was in the mother room ten times. That is a lot of puppies. Sadly, I have no idea what happened to any of my children.

Old before my time

Living in a cage is not easy. You do not get much exercise when you live in a puppy mill. I was lucky if they took me out of the cage once a day. By the time I was four years old, I had already had so many puppies, it was hard to give milk anymore. I bully dragged on the ground when I walked.

I prayed for the day; I would no longer me bread. I know, what that meant, when you could not have puppies anymore they got rid of you. You were carried away in a box. At least it would be an end to all of my pain and loneliness.

To be continued….

Final note

[i]b]Please, do not buy your pets from puppy mills. Puppy Mills need to be closed down. They do not treat the animals well at all. They are bred to death and keep in horrible conditions.

Oh my goodness! This is so heart wrenching. Puppy mills should all be shut down. Peace to you today.

Puppies have to be looked after but one should be humane about the whole thing.

I feel so sad for all the animals who have suffered through such abuse.

We treat our fellow travelers less than fair, but are they not from the same source as us? Then again we are cruel to one another of our own species.

Thanks for bringing out the inconvenient truth that we close our eye on Brendamarie. We all carry a lot of guilt - siva
