Amazon works very nicely for me, however: they provide a nice catalog 
that I can search and then contact my local bookstore / pet store / 
whatever with the proper product specifications. I have been talking to 
some friends about this: get out of the You Need This Now (TM) mentality 
and use Amazon as a global catalog for your local purchases; make sure 
some of your buck ends up on the local coffee shop, or it may close.
