Now available to the public are microchips at a cost of only $15 each.  A microchip is a permanent form of identification for your pet.  It's a tiny electronic device, about the size of a grain of rice, that is placed below the animal's skin, usually between the shoulder
blades, and can be detected by any veterinarian or animal shelter in the country.  Don't let your pet stay away from home any longer than necessary.  Get it chipped!

"Hello,

We recently celebrated Dirty Harry's 4th rebirth day, marking four years since i brought him home from the shelter.  Harry was a crazy, energetic, large pup when i got him.  A whopping 63 lbs. at 6 months old.  Harry grew to be a majestic 85 lbs of pure cuddly dog!  When i first brought Harry home, he knew nothing about being a dog.  That has rapidly changed, as our other dog quickly showed him the ropes.  He now enjoys long walks, playing ball, wrestling with his doggie brother, and running laps at the dog park.  Harry has also decided that despite his weight, he is a lap dog.  He really enjoys laying in my lap for a belly rub!

Since adopting Harry, we also welcomed my first child into our lives.  Harry adjusted splendidly!  He now has a little person who is willing to throw a ball, brush him, and dole out treats (and table scraps).  There's nothing more endearing than watching a massive dog take orders from a three year old.  It just goes to show how far a little time and a little love go!

I'm so glad we found such an amazing dog.  Thank you!

Amanda"
