Parking lot puppies

A woman was selling a litter of 6-week-old Shih-tzu puppies in a movie theater parking lot.

After I purchased my super-awesome caffeine supplement from the local coffee establishment, I meandered over. Of course there was a crowd ohhing and ahhing over the puppies.

I asked, "Do you have a permit to sell these puppies?"

"No. You need one?"

"Yes."

*suspicious look* "Are you from the law?"

"No, I'm just a person who cares about the millions of dogs and cats killed in shelters each year."

"Oh."

"So, are you going to get them spayed and neutered?"

"No. I'm selling 'em. Once they're gone, people can do whatever they want with them."

Nice. I left after that and promptly reported her to authorities.

Who are these people?

I felt better, even if the cop I talked to said "Well, I mean, if you followed the EXACT letter of the law TO THE EXTREME, then yeah, it's illegal to sell puppies in a parking lot." WTF?

Still, even if shows up, that might be enough to deter some "buyers" from an impulse purchase. Doubt it will deter breeder-lady, but still. *sigh*

I have no idea, but we have a plague of them here. I've always wondered what to say to them when I find them, and your response is great. I'll have to remember it.
