    Default IF THIS DOESN'T MAKE YOU SMILE... ( Dog story)

    Iím suspicious of people who don't like dogs, but I trust a dog who doesn't like a person.

    Wonderful story. I lost a dog who never to be seen again - full I.D./microchipped so someone probably stole her. That story brought back memories for me of that dear dog too.

    (Hope you had a good vacation Terry.)

    One of the first things we do with a new dog is get a chip. We have had to look for dogs up the Spanish River, over in the Upper Peninsula and downtown Whitby, all before chips came along. We learned their value but have never needed one since.

    Yup. My dog is chipped too. They only work if someone is trying to help though.

    All of our dogs are also, but that only helps if the Vets are on the ball.

    A number of years ago , a friend of ours, ESP Breeder , had one of his females stolen from his kennel, totally lost for 4 years , where did he finally find her, at his own vets office , when he noticed her in a kennel in the back of the vets office when he went to pick up one of his other dogs after it had an overnight stay from minor surgery.

    Four years, and the vet had never bothered to use the scanner on the dog even though it had been there before numerous times , as this dog was one of my friends breeders and was constantly checked for it's health,and was easily recognized for its color pattern.
    Makes you wonder ?.

    Right on jaycee and Terry.
    Microchip matters to naught if the dog is stolen . Collar I.D will disappear as will trips to the vet to see if there is a microchip.

    I also think vets should check all new clients' dogs for a microchip. Takes 5 minutes.

    Story #2:

    My setter got out of the backyard as someone left the gate open. Full I.D.

    I wandered the streets , advertised in the local newspaper, reward etc.

    2 weeks later I got a call saying, "My neighbour has your dog."

    I drove over there and there was my dog on the lawn. The homeowner gave me a hard time.

    homeowner:" How do I know it is your dog? Anyone who lets their dog escape shouldn't have a dog."

    I showed pics. I had brought. I tempted him saying there was a reward available.

    homeowner: " I would never take a reward ,but I did have to take the dog to the vet."

    "What happened ?" I asked.

    homeowner: "He had a scrape on his foot. I would like the money back that I paid to the vet."

    "How much was that ?" I asked.

    homeowner: It was $500.00 ( Also happened to be the amount of the reward.)

    I paid and got out of there with my dog.

    ( I sent flowers to the Lady who called me. )
