In what surely has to be one of the worst commercials created, the new GoDaddy commercial for Super Bowl XLIX promotes puppy mills. After backlash from viewers, it has now been pulled.
The video which shows an adorable golden retriever falling from an opened truck traveling down the road. Other than the puppy taking a spill, it starts off innocently enough. They then show him walking the roads, running alongside cars, following train tracks, and braving thunderstorms until he finally reaches a barn....his home. A woman looks delighted and says, "Look it's Buddy, I'm so glad you made it home". She scoops him up and looks at him lovingly and then says, "I just sold you on this website I bought with GoDaddy.

My mother’s Schnauzer mix, Sha Sha, eats just about anything. I didn’t quite believe just how often she would quickly snap up everything in her sight until a few weeks ago when she swallowed a quarter and a nickel in the blink of an eye. The vet advised my mother to watch her for the next few days as the coins would likely pass.
It’s a very common issue among dog owners and it doesn’t only happen with puppies. The majority of dogs do grow out of the need to eat inedible objects. It can be difficult to pinpoint exactly what a puppy would eat so it’s best to be vigilant about where you dog is allowed to freely roam.
Many dogs and puppies have been known to swallow seemingly unsuitable items, which you might not find in any way enticing or preferable, but they do.
