A year ago, Peter Miles and his husband Pete Chang found themselves in a strange and very, very strange situation.
The pair had just moved into a small home in the heart of the Canadian Rockies in a remote part of the country.
They were looking for a pet, and they couldn’t find one.
“We were just looking for pets that we had not seen in years,” said Miles.
Peter and Pete knew they were looking at a house. “
Then we started looking around and it just started coming together.”
Peter and Pete knew they were looking at a house.
And they were, for a few days at least.
But then things went awry.
As the couple started to investigate, they discovered a few unusual things.
One of the most strange things they discovered was that their house was actually a pet shop.
In fact, the shop had been open for over 10 years, and it had been operating for nearly that long.
“It was a very odd situation,” said Peter.
“There was a dog shop, there was a cat shop, and there was also a couple of other little things that were odd.”
The couple decided to start a petition, which would get their message out to the public.
They also decided to ask for some assistance.
“So we put the petition out on our Facebook page and it was pretty much 100,000 signatures by the time we got to our second post,” said Pete.
“That’s when it got really scary.”
The petition went viral, garnering thousands of signatures.
A few weeks later, the couple received a phone call from someone who told them the store had closed down.
“The phone rang and the caller said, ‘This is Peter Chang and Pete Chang, and the PETA has contacted us and told us that we’re no longer able to operate our shop.'”
“We didn’t believe it,” said Chiappet.
“This is when I knew, ‘You know what? “
We’ve got to do something about this,'” said Chiang. “
This is when I knew, ‘You know what?
We’ve got to do something about this,'” said Chiang.
“PETA has come out and said, We’re taking over the business.”
And they’ve come out with a plan.
They have hired an agent to buy the house and start the business.
But what does that mean for the Pekingese?
Peter Chang is not a typical owner.
He owns a home in Seattle, where he’s a partner in a real estate development company.
His real estate partner is an animal lover who was very concerned about the safety of the birds in the house.
He said that when he saw the petition, he was very upset.
“And I remember going home and crying,” said Chang.
“As soon as I saw it on the TV, I said, I’m going to do everything in my power to get the house shut down.
And I think the first thing I did was go to the local animal shelter and I brought them the petition and they said, Yeah, we’re going to take the petition.”
So they did.
And within days, the petition had been posted online.
Within weeks, the store was selling out.
It was not long before the local news and the media picked up on the story, and a petition was starting to be circulated on Facebook.
And it was quickly picked up by many other animal-lovers across Canada.
“All of a sudden, people were talking about this and there’s just a sense of panic,” said Lisa Smith.
“People were getting together and saying, ‘It’s happening here.
It’s happening everywhere.
I can’t believe this is happening here.'”
So when the Peketeres got a phone message from PETA, they were very excited.
They immediately knew that they needed to take action.
“After that first phone call, we just thought, I need to take some action,” said Chandler.
“Because I didn’t want to go to sleep and wake up to the news that it’s happening.
We need to do this.”
And so they did it.
The first thing they did was contact the PTA and the City of Regina.
They contacted the Regina Humane Society, which sent out a letter to the shelter.
They got a response that said, “The shelter has been informed that the PKE-TV sign and its associated images are not allowed in their shelter,” and they sent the letter back to the owner.
But the owners didn’t seem to mind.
“When we got the letter, the owners were so gracious, they took it very well, and I was very happy,” said Rachel Smith.
But they didn’t just accept the letter.
