    Puppy Purchasing When Drunk, a Common City Scourge
    By MATT FLEGENHEIMER

    New York City pet shop ownership has its challenges: Pushy customers. Yapping pooches. And, it seems, drunken puppy purchasing.

    On Tuesday, the news Web site DNAinfo.com reported that two Greenwich Village pet shops had policies barring visibly intoxicated patrons from buying, playing with, or even cradling puppies.

    It turns out that the phenomenon is even more widespread. Of seven city pet store owners or employees interviewed by The New York Times, some with multiple shops, all but one said the store had explicit guidelines for dealing with intoxicated customers.

    Hey Stacie,

    I'm sorry, but I have to ask. Are you a paid poster? I only ask because of the number of threads you open and you always seem to have a link to refer to.

    Please indulge, I am only curious. hmm
