Bumper & Great Neighbors

As you all know, I LOVE living in a small town. This is just another example of why it's so great. A friend of mine (Bumper--a dog) got turned around during a rain storm and ended up at the wrong house. Having super neighbors as we do in Prattsville, they helped to get Bumper back home safe and sound. It was not an easy task because he did not have on a collar or tags. They drove around the neighborhood and asked the other neighbors if he belonged to them. No one knew where he belonged. They took Bumper back to their home and decided they would try again the next day. About 30 minutes later the phone rang. It was one of the neighbors who had spoken with Bumper's parents and had let them know where he was.

This made me think how important a tag with name and phone number is to have on your pet. If Bumper would have had his tag on, the family would have only had to make a quick phone call, and Bumper would have been home safe and sound. Tell your friends the importance of an ID tag. These can be purchased at your vet's office, pet stores, or even online.

Well, until next time, have a WOOFaful day---Scout!!!
