My good friends live in Phoenix, and recently a strange dog wandered into their yard. They live on the side of mountain, so I am sure they were a surprised! They took her to their family vet, Moon Valley Animal Hospital, http://www.moonvalleyvet.com/homepage.pml and scanned her for a microchip. There it was… a readable chip that traced “Coco” back to a city and a phone number. Just one little problem. The owner moved and changed her phone number. UGGH!
People, please be sure to update your info when you move. Usually you have advance notice that you are moving. Seriously, you have no idea how important this is. Your pets are moving with you, only they aren’t exactly aware of it until they get to the new location. The smells are different, everything is strange and the routine is in shambles. If they get lost, they get REALLY lost. Take just a bit of time.
Now luckily Coco was a sweet old girl, who loved my friends’ 2 other dogs. My friends went the old fashioned way of postering the neighborhood. I am happy to report that within 24 hours of my friends finding her, Coco was reunited with her family.
