This is a cool new idea from the good folks at Dog Tag Art. It allows you to create a website just for your dog, which is really nothing new. Their twist on it, however, is that you put the website URL on your dog’s tag, allowing anyone who finds your dog when it is lost to log on and find out contact information not only for you, but for whomever might be more accessible at the time.

This story grabbed my attention because the dog is originally from Texas (where my dad was raised), but was found in Hamilton, Ohio (where my mom now lives). Weird, huh?
Corbin, a Chiweenie from Killeen, Texas apparently tunneled out of his back yard on March 25th. No one knows what happened between then and when the dog was found tied to a bench outside the Butler County Animal Friends Humane Society in Hamilton, Ohio on March 28th, but what happened next is truly a tale of fate and Good Samaritanism.

When hikers found this mess of a dog on a cliff behind Lambert Castle at Garrett Mountain Park in northern New Jersey, they never dreamed it would take more than 20 people and over 3 hours to get her down. She was subsequently named Clover, and she apparently does have the luck of the Irish. Continue reading Must be a FOUR LEAF Clover→
I know that divorce isn’t a happy time for anyone, but this just goes beyond the pale. When Jamie Carpentier and his wife split up, she got custody of the dog AND GAVE HER AWAY! I can’t tell you how angry that makes me, but I digress. Continue reading Reunited and it feels so good…→
I wanted to share the story of Rocky. Rocky moved to Massachusetts last winter with his family from Maine. Shortly after his move, Rocky had gotten loose from his owners, and quickly got lost. For months Rocky’s family has been searching for him. Last night Rocky’s owners received a call from one of their old neighbors in Maine, saying he just saw a dog near his house that looked just like Rocky. With little hope that this was their dog, as Rocky is actually an elder gentleman at 13 years old, Rocky’s family headed to Maine. When they arrived they went to a walking path near where they used to live that they used to frequent with their beloved hound, and began to call out his name. To their shock and amazement, Rocky came walking up to them from the woods. Rocky had been missing for 7 months and had traveled over 100 miles from Massachusetts to Maine. And to a house that the owners had not actually lived in for more than 4 years (as they had moved once to another house in Maine before going to Massachusetts). Rocky does have some healing to do from his journey, and we wish him a speedy recovery, and we are overwhelmed with joy for him and his family. I asked Rocky’s family if I may share his story, to help everyone out there searching for their missing pet not to give up hope.
The dog definitely has the right name – can’t you just see “Rocky” dancing at the top of the steps in Philadelphia? Best wishes to Rocky and his family from the doggies.com family.
Imagine driving across the desert in Arizona and being involved in a car accident so bad that both you and your dog are thrown through the windshield of your car. Then imagine you are airlifted to the nearest hospital, but no one can find your dog, who ran off in fear after the crash.
That’s what happened to Rose and her dog ILY (“I Love You”) Thanks to some dedicated friends, family members, and even strangers, the dog was found two months later and reunited with Rose in this touching video. Look at that tail go when they finally get ILY out of the cage and she tries to climb onto Rose’s lap!
Just a moment on my soapbox: I don’t know the circumstances of this crash, but PLEASE everybody, use seatbelts for both yourself and your dog when you travel!
This time, I’m not asking for your money, just for you to keep your eyes open. When Brandon Harker returned from Afghanistan in July, he was so looking forward to being greeted by his yellow Lab, Oakley. However, he soon found out that his “friends” had either sold or given away the dog through social media site CraigsList.
Seven months is a long time to be separated from your best friend. For the bargain basement price of an implanted microchip, reunification was possible.
Make sure your dogs ALWAYS have an ID tag and / or a microchip! I recommend both because the average person on the street won’t have the capability to scan for a chip, but can easily contact you from the ID tags when your dog is found.
Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
