Don't buy a puppy on impulse

It's Farmers' Market season again. You expect to see tomatoes, tulips, asparagus, morels. You don't expect to see this:

This is terrible. Selling a puppy as if it were a sack of potatoes. To anyone who's willing to pay $45 for a dog he/she doesn't know anything about from a person he/she doesn't know anything about and all that on a whim.

If you're thinking of buying a puppy (rather than adopting an older dog from a rescue or a shelter), please read these notes by the Humane Society.
