When my business partner at Wags on Willow told me I was going to “get a chip” I thought “Oh Boy, another treat from Mary.”
“But why are we going to the veterinarian to get a treat?” I asked my canine self.
“You’ll like this chip,” Mary said. “Because with it you will never be lost.”
That sounded great because if I got lost or dognapped who would give me treats? And I would be so sad if I was ever separated from Mary. I’d worry who would help her run the business.
And that is a good reason to celebrate National Check the Chip Day on August 15—or any day. Microchips are security for dogs. They are like invisible electronic leashes that keep us attached to our owners.
Right after treats I love technology.
If you are not certain your pet has one of these identity tags implanted ask your veterinarian to check. He can also tell you if the records are up-to-date.
Veterinarians, pet shelters, some dog pounds automatically look for the chip and the information it yields when they meet a new furry four-ped.
And if you love your dog and haven’t yet had your favorite pet chipped, ask your veterinarian.
Being a curious Pug I wondered about the “Dog Days” of summer.
Exciting news from Wags on Willow!
A big Ernie tail wag for dads.
It is their special day this month (June 18 Mary says) and I salute them for all they do.
They step in to feed the family four paws when others are too busy.
They take us on walks after dark when stinky skunks lurk in the bushes.
They pick up after us and they sometimes even hide our “mistakes” from mom. Sometimes they “accidentally” drop popcorn on the floor when they are watching movies or sneak a little food under the dinner table.
Just so you know in case you are invited for dinner, I like bacon.
They drive us to the doctor because nobody else wants to watch us get our shots or when we are really sick in the middle of the night.
And if we get lost (usually because they moved the house when we were sniffing around the neighborhood) they stay out all night calling our name until they find us.
Hooray for dads!
Happy two-legged Father’s Day.
That is this Pug’s advice to my dog friends as we observe National Dog Bite Prevention Week.
Biting can get you and your human owner into a dog pile of trouble. Plus biting can get your owner into the legal dog house.
In Illinois all dog bites have to be reported to the dog police, the local animal control officer, within 24 hours. A biting dog also must see a veterinarian within 24 hours of the biting incident. If you haven’t had your rabies shot you’ll have too stay there for 10 days. If you did get your shots you can go home but have to stay in the house and yard for 10 days and then visit the vet again.
And while you might get out of the legal dog house your human owner might still face big legal troubles. So just don’t bite – be nice. That’s Ernie’s advice!
