    My 2 cents.
    agreed on the Ark. Heard some straight up awful stories about their treatment of animals from people who used to work there.

    IIRC Dyvig's was selling puppy mill puppies. I only went in there once and wasn't very impressed.

    When you get holes in the knees, then you can cut them off, realllll short. Just like coaches shorts from the 80s. I'd link a picture, but I'd worry about copy write infringement.

    The last time I went into the Ark I watched the employees take rats/mice out of a cart, hold them by the tail, and whack them on the floor to "stun/kill" them before they put them in with the snakes. I realize they are going to die, but there has to be a better way than that. Didn't seem to bother them that the store was full of customers watching them in amazement.

    The Ark has always just left a sour taste in my mouth.


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

    This whole Getty picture dustup has only inspired me to redouble my efforts in posting random pics.

    Re: What are they building?

    Sports store is much needed.
    Man.....Too bad they couldn't have put Kohls, JC Penny, Younkers, Sears, Best Buy, Petsmart, Sports Authority etc etc. into its only shopping mecca or mall setting. But that wouldn't be smart growth now would it?

    Speaking of Sports Authority, I see Seneca Wallace is going to be at their West Des Moines store this Saturday from 1-2:30 for their "Grand Reopening" (they have been doing some remodeling).

    This. We get most our pet supplies from Brekke's. You get the same dog food at PetSmart in Ankeny for $10 more then you can at Brekkes.
