Shadow, Jake, Buddy, Murphy ???
This is a friendly stray dog that found me this morning. I do not know his name or where he belongs because he has no tags. So what is your favorite excuse for not tagging a dog?
Here is a list of some of the dumbest excuses I have heard:
"He never goes outside without me"
"He takes his collar off, can't keep one on him"
"Oh I took his collar off to give him a bath and forgot to put it back on"
"I don't like to hear the tags clinking around"
Tag your dogs people! Put your phone number on the tag. Tag your dogs, tag your dogs, please tag your dogs ... and do it today.
If you do not want to tag your dog then microchip them. Sorry for the rant ... I know that all my readers are devoted pet lovers that tag their dogs ... I just needed to vent.
So Now what ....
Tomorrow, we paper the neighborhood, we visit the pound to place a notice and we wait. We try hard to not get too attached to Shadow ( that is what I am going to call him). We try not to get attached because 4 dogs is our crazy person line that we will be crossing some day when we go from 3 to 4 dogs. Dan and I are both 100% in agreement that 4 dogs is not going to be a good number for us unless one if us is retired, and that is way way down the road. If we can not find his people we will have to try to get him into rescue, or get on the waiting list for a no-kill shelter. He is a really great dog. You can see it in his eyes can't you?
