Update on the Lost Dog

I wanted to give an update on our fluffy friend. We found his family! His name is Boss and he’s a 5 year old Shitzu and he crossed over the busy intersection from one half of our community to our side. So happy he made it across safely and that we were able to scoop him up and keep him safe for his owner. I left messages and filled out a Found Dog Report with Animal Management and when they opened on Monday his owner called and they connected us based on the description and location. It seems her friend left the garage open and a door open and he got out and we all think he was just wandering the neighborhood since they’re pretty new here. He was spinning in circles and so happy to see his mama and she was almost in tears. I just knew he had a home and I was determined we would find it. His owner tried to give us a reward and we asked her to buy him a new chew toy and get him microchipped with that money. I think that’s a much better use for the cash, don’t you?

If you have a pet, I highly recommend a microchip. Collars and tags can fall off but any vet can scan your pet for a microchip. And now that we’re back down to just one dog, I can totally get back to my normal knitting schedule. Priorities, folks.

  1. That’s so great. We have two rescue cats and while they’re not outdoor cats (yet?!), they both have a microchip. Part of me thinks it’s a little creepy (like, would I want to put a microchip in myself?), but who wants to lose their pet?

    1. I felt the same way but realize that my dog is so little and I’d be distraught if she got lost. Plus our cellphones are damn near trackers for us these days.

    2. Agree. I used to think the same way, until I saw the amount of missing pet flyers hanging in the vet’s waiting room.πŸ˜”
      I am relieved I don’t have to worry about her getting snagged on a collar somewhere in the woods and not getting loose or choking. Then I used to worry that without a collar, Folks would mistake her for a stray. That’s never happened, though because she never goes too far from home.
