Following up on Suzanne’s fine post about puppy mills, it seems to me that the issue has pervaded both the traditional media and the blogosphere with increasing frequency of late (even Oprah did a show last year, as did NPR). Perhaps this upsurge stems partly from the new era in Washington although I am still (patiently) waiting for some concrete signal that the Obama administration will concern itself with the plight of nonhumans. In any event, there’s a good piece in the Daily Kos today about the fallout both from a particular puppy mill in Skagit County, Washington and from the larger industry. Another informative post about it here.
