A Chip on Her Shoulder

The Family thought it was a good idea when I got microchipped. In fact, they decided that all three of us could use a chip on our shoulder, so Mom gathered up Glynn next and took her to see Doc.

They sure got a surprise when they did. When he scanned Glynn's shoulders, she already had a chip! They wrote the number down and talked to Mom about it, and she brought Glynn home to decide what to do next.

If someone gave Glynn a microchip, that probably meant that she has a home somewhere. Is there a family out there wondering what happened to their little dog? Mom and Dad and My Kids talked about it alot. They came up with about a bazillion reasons that Glynn should stay with us. The main reason seems to be that we love her and don't want to let her go.

But they finally decided, hard as it was, to do the right thing. Mom said if one of us got lost, she would want us back and would be worried sick until we were home safe. Painful as it was to do, Dad called the microchip company and told them about Glynn.

It only took less than a minute to find out that no one had reported Glynn missing. In fact, her number had never been entered into the database. Who would go to the trouble to chip a dog, then not pay the few extra dollars to make sure they keep her safe? Since Glynn never talks about her past, we have no way of knowing.

Mom went ahead and told them to register Glynn with our family, so now she's here to stay. We're all very happy about it, and relieved! We didn't want to let her go. Cap and I love our little Sis.

Sometimes Glynn sits out on the grass, looks up and closes her eyes, and just soaks up the sun. Mom thinks she makes a very pretty little yard ornament when she sits still like that, but I wonder if it's because she's happy in our home.
I know we're all happy to have her here to stay.

I think the moral of the story is that if you always do the right thing, you reap big rewards! You are so lucky to have Glynn as your forever sister. How did she find you in the beginning? I must have missed that story....

Tell, tell Glynn she is quite the looker too! Maybe she would consider being my Guinevere!

But alas, I guess it would never work out. Long-distance relationships never seem to last. -puppy sigh-

Well I am very glad Glynn has a permanent home now! She's one very lucky pup. It seemed destined!

Cheers for now!

Hi Tell,

We've been meaning to come around since we saw you dressed up for Jackson's mustache contest- we didn't win either :(

Chips are important. JH jad one when we got him, but we knew his owner had abandoned him, so we weren't too worried. And now, Like your Glynn, he is ours (that's for better and for worse, I guess).

Do come visit.
