    Won't shop at a big box pet store, especially when we have such great local treasures like The Ark.

    Sweet I love Petco. My wife and dogs will be happy, but my bank account won't be.

    Great treasures? Even in the new location The Ark is a horrible pet store. I've never been in there without the tanks just full of dead fish. Meanwhile all the employees are sitting behind the front counter.

    Don't get me wrong I hate box pet stores too, but calling The Ark a treasure is something else. I spend my money at Dyvig's Pet Shoppe in Ames. A place that actually takes care of everything they have for sale. Hell at least Petco will be clean.

    My 2 cents.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    Ames really was in need of a sporting goods store so that is great.

    Just because you graduated doesn't mean you can't walk around in baseball pants whenever you want.

    How is that place? I've seen people picket it before so I've been afraid to go in. I think they were unhappy that puppies are sold there.

    They put it like this so it should clear it up for you: PetSmart

    It's kind of like my user name - caps are there to help you out.

    They also have a logo now that has PET in red and SMART in blue. That should be another clue.

    I like the place personally. I get the whole "puppy mill" thing, but if it isn't illegal I don't know why you would try to hurt a small, local business that really loves animals. Most of the workers there are vet students that truly love and take good care of all the pets. I prefer shopping there over any other pet store.

    Puppy mills are going to be a thing until it is illegal and I'd rather have the animals be in a store like this than somewhere else.

    Ames doesn't have any good sports equipment stores, Sports Page barely counts, Jax has some but not a lot.

    Brekke's on 30 east of town is my favorite pet/farm feed supply store in the area. High quality, reasonable prices, and great people!
