Vancouver Sun highlights puppy issues

I’ve always enjoyed the “Puppy Love” column by Kim Pemberton in the Vancouver Sun.  Here is a great article — part of a series — about the better option to ‘adopt don’t shop’. See here.

    Hi Christie,

    Let me first start by saying how much I enjoy your blog and love the advocacy work you do! On June 29th, Kim Pemberton wrote, as part of her series, a story on the pros and cons of pet insurance. In response to the article, I wrote the following letter to the Editor http://p4hanimalfdn.wordpress.com/2011/06/30/puppy-love-the-issue-should-not-be-about-pet-insurance-the-issue-should-be-about-buying-puppies-in-pet-stores/. I did not receive a response, nor was my letter published…but rather, this very brief story was published by Pemberton the following day.

    In the past, I had sent her an e-mail asking her to highlight the issue of buying puppies and pet stores and she did not respond and, other than this ‘rushed’ article, she has not given it much attention.

    Needless to say, I am frustrated as I believe she has the platform to really bring attention to the issue and she does not.
