It is amazing that so much energy and effort has been made of one line to
Town Talk on Wednesday:
The good news is that Dan, of Old Town Pets in beautiful downtown Riverdale
Park, does have puppies coming in today. Pet 'em,' pick 'em, buy' em, love
In retrothink, I wonder if such compassion and emotion were invested in say,
humans, that WRC-TV/4's Barbara Harrison would not have to offer up children
for adoption -- "Wednesday's Child" -- as she does on Sunday mornings and
Wednesday evenings. Those "pets" need good, loving homes too and I wonder if
there is as much thought and emotion expended on them as there was in this
Just my observation...

I'm glad to hear that the pups and kittens are mostly rescues or
incidentals. It's not a real surprise because you usually have to "order in bulk" from
brokers/puppy dealers. If anyone is familiar with Just Puppies in Laurel,
they receive their puppy deliveries out of the back of 18-wheeler tractor
trailers and crates of 6, 7 and 8 week old babies are off loaded just like cases
of groceries. It's a seedy business IMHO.
To contrast, Dan is indeed providing a community service of sorts. I just
hope those animals are winding up in a good place. But as a retailer, and as
a animal business permitted by the county, it is actually his legally
regulated responsibility to ensure the constant good health of the animals in his
care, especially the puppies and kittens, and there are pages and pages of
county code devoted to retail pet establishments and those requirements. I have
no doubt that Dan would choose to anyway, but he is required to by law to be
a good caretaker of his animals.
Thanks for the info on Dan and the puppies; I know the
animals I've seen in his shop have appeared healthy
and happy; I DIDN'T know he was doing all of that
extra work to make sure that they remained that way.
Nice to hear!
