A week ago, February 19, 2012 marks one year when I picked up Chloe and took her home. I never mentioned this before, but I bought Chloe from a pet shop in a mall near my place. I kept this story from this blog to encourage readers and future pet owners to purchase puppies from authorized breeders and not from pet stores who gets their puppies mostly from puppy mills. At that time, I still lack the knowledge of the situation regarding these pet stores and puppy mills. In any case, for my second dog Maru, I got him from a trustful shiba inu breeder.
