One of my doggies is deaf, but the other one can't talk, either :-)

If they got lost ONCE, I would die of a broken heart.

This is a great idea especially if it's waterproof as our dog loves water. Our Jack Russell (Ernie) is never off the leash or out of our site when camping, but if he ever got loose we too would die of a broken heart!

He is currently recovering from surgery (a rare condition called Legg Perthes) so no camping for awhile but that is the worse thought imaginable. Hopefully someone will design a tiny tracking device that could be implanted as a lost dog in the woods would be as terrified as the owners, especially at night!

Another way.....with more and more people carrying a laptop these days you could purchase a low volume USB storage media stick and store a lot more information for a lot less money. Most come with a "hole" for a fob ring.

Good idea, I have a flash drive that powers by USB. I also have a laptop. But most people do NOT have a laptop while camping, and MANY people are not computer liiterate, anyway.

LOTS of people go camping to get away from their puter!

OOOOPS!! Forgot to mention!

I had enclosed this info in the original post (the one that refused to launch) but L.L.Bean online has these E-tags for half price, on close-out. They're 18.00, plus shipping.

Dilly and Dephanise's tags arrived yesterday. They are WAY COOL.

The only thing "wrong" with them is that they have the L.L.Bean (as well as the E-tag) logo on them, but who cares?

I can't spell my own doggie's name!

It was supposed to be "Dephanie"

Cool.. here's the tag

This is what the tag looks like.

On Deph's, I have entered :

I am deaf
Please call Mom
Please call Dad
Please call home
Please call my doc.
If I'm loose, I'm lost.
get ne home, Mom will give you a reward

Plus, all the corresponding numbers.

I'm thinking about adding my email, but that's a BIT nutty.

Talking Cat Person

Cats, especially Miss Kitty can slip any collar made. She's a company cat and "negotiates" her way in and out at will. With 25 to 30 employees, keeping her strictly indoors is a lost cause. She also functions as our corporate greeter and psychiatrist. More than one client has become a cat purrson after meeting Miss Kitty!

Another hazard is that cats can get hung up on a branch or fence by their collars and strangle or get a paw hung in the collar and be helpless to flee or defend themselves from other animals.

Our vet implants ID tags under the skin of the inside thigh of both cats and dogs for about $65. The tags are registered back to the owner nationwide. Most vets, Animal Control, the SPCA and most shelters have a tag reader device and routinely check for these implanted devices in found animals. Cheap insurance if you ask me.

Tin Lizzie - dogs have owners, cats have staff

You are SO RIGHT, and Deph has an Avid Microchip, between her shoulders. But a fellow camper or, neighbor, can't read it, so, because of her deafness, I am probably over-doing it.

But neither a Microchip OR an E-tag will help in case of theft.
That's my nightmare # 47.

Correct about collars, too!

You are rigth about collars, too.. I REALLY prefer a body harness because both of my dogs are wiry little critters (terriers) and can slip a collar, just exactly like you said.

Dilly doesn't run off, but Deph is going to be transitioning into our family for a long time.

She's been abused, and is confused. And I'm a poet and don't know it.
(Sorry... coudln't help myself.)


But really, she's had it rough and is a dear little dog that needs special needs considerations.

We also keep the pooches on leash all the time, but just in case they get away, they have chips and tags. The tags have our cell number, and mention a reward "If I'm alone, I'm lost". We're pretty vigilant about not losing them, so far so good.

However, funny story. We were setting up camp at a state park, and had just checked in, where the ranger gave me a stern warning about not letting the dogs run loose. No problem, says I! We go to our camping spot which is right across the road from the ranger shack. Dave and I are behind the truck trying to unhook the trailer (this is early in our camping experience, it took both of us to figure it out), and I hear a jingle and look over and say "Hi, Alki" to my pooch, who is sitting in the grass beside my feet. Then it dawns on me that isn't right - Alki? What are you doing out of the truck?!? Turns out I'd left the window down a crack and she wriggled out, dropping all the way to the ground! I'm surprised she didn't get hurt! So she wanders back to see what we're doing, all the while the ranger's like 50 feet away, probably fuming about these stupid campers and their dogs!
