This has been a very difficult week for my family and me. Last Friday morning, our beloved dog of 10 years, Squeekerz, decided to go for a walk without his leash or his humans. Those of you who are long time readers know that Squeekerz has become quite a fixture in my photography. He’s a first class photo bomber! And often likes to pose for pictures (this after spending many months getting over his fear of the camera sounds).
I’ve never been a big proponent of pet chipping, honestly, the thought of putting something inside my dog sort made me feel all Big Brotherish… But after this past week, I would tell anyone, if you love your pet, chip it. Make sure that your dog is licensed. Keep current photos. And never ever take it for granted that your dog will not run off.
Squeekers is a short haired Chihuahua/Jack Russell Terrier mix. His eyes range from dark brown to light brown almost hazel depending on his mood. He’s partial to bread and Girl Scout Cookies (short bread, thankyouverymuch). He was lost in Jackson, Missouri near HWY W around 7:30 AM. on Friday, 24 August. If you see him, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. He’s missed terribly by his family.
