Dog mapping

Postby Ice.Maiden » 18 Jan 2015, 19:26

Have you got one of these in the country where you live? In the UK, dog chipping's enabled a map of the most popular breeds to be devised, so that you can see which dogs're most popular in your particular area.

Mongrel or not, if pets're well loved and they get lost or stolen, chipping might help to retrieve them.

What's your dog crossed with T? They often make hardier pets actually.

ours is chipped and resembles mostly a hay stack.... she's a golden doodle with a serious need for a trim.

Yep. It's so un-natural. The owners constantly groom them before each show. I'd love to know how the poor animals feel about that. It's repetitive and just not right.
