Ugh, puppy mills -- can they not?

Puppy mills are the reason we can't stop fighting ignorance with education. Yes, that puppy in the window looks cute, but when you look at where that puppy comes from, the story gets pretty ugly: Rows and rows of filthy wire cages crammed with dogs suffering from various levels of neglect, their paws and jaws mangled, some of them on the verge of death even as they're forced to produce more puppies. It's just horrible.
