Today, Rory and I visited the Animaleries on le Quai de la Mégisserie, along the Seine. The Animaleries are Pet shops, but not just any pet shops as they also sell dogs! Most are puppies and quite small, but there are some who are fully grown and kept in tiny cages. It’s heartbreaking. And they’re not cheap either, ranging from about 600 to 1700 euros!! They obviously had other animals from ferrets to baby hamsters – which were very cute, but these animals don’t need the space to exercise like a dog does. It was difficult to see them cooped up and pawing at each other through the glass and I wish I could have taken one home!
