Friday 11th May 2012 – IMPORTANT for all dogs

It isn’t every day there is a new really important phone application and internet service especially for dogs so this is for all of you and I really want every dog and dog owner to take a look. This is in case you ever get lost. Thousands of us do get lost for all sorts of reasons and we know from our own personal painful experience that when it happens it is a nightmare. For all of you with microchips you can now register for a special service that will contact all the agencies and key parties in a 30 mile radius of where you get lost. Please take a look at http://www.petlog.org.uk/lostpetalert Of course your microchip should be registered anyway, but this takes it all a whole stage further and takes some of the strain out of things for you and your owners if ever you lose your bearings.

The cool bit is that you can also download an application to many smartphones so that all your details can be set up ready to fire off at a moments’ notice. I either need to change phone or wait until they produce the right app for my phone, but that isn’t the point. I’d like you all to sign up. Well all of you in the UK anyway. That way I can be sure my friends are as well provided for as possible. Losing a friend is a nightmare. When it happened to us it didn’t have a happy ending and this website could really help to stop things happening as they did to Bella four years ago. If you don’t do it for me, then do it in memory of Bella and in the hope that if you get lost you will be returned safely.

I promise tomorrow I’ll be a little less serious and tell you why I peed on the dining room carpet…and sideboard…and cowhide rug…
