Escape Artist

24 Nov

That confounded dog is a source of constant amazement.

How he can remove his tags without disturbing his collar totally bewilders me.  So far, he has managed to lose two ID tags, a rabies tag, and two licenses. We only get a new tag every five years, and the county sends us a certificate saying he’s covered. When he lost the first one, I had to pay $5 for a replacement.

He lost that, too.

I stopped at the pet store and had a tag engraved with his name, our phone number, and the fact that he is microchipped. And repeated the process a year later.  We’ve gone out with the metal detector, but when you have two acres. . . well, there’s a classic lost cause.

It’s a darned good thing he can’t misplace that chip. Although it wouldn’t surprise me if he managed that!

    Chips migrate.

    We gave up on Reserve Cat years ago — he lost every single make and model of collar we tried on him. Of the younger generation, Minnie has managed to shed hers twice.

      The weird thing is, he never takes off his collar. He just manages to lose the tags, AND the “S” hook that attaches them. I simply do NOT understand!

        That’s talent.
