True, but I feel that those people that would actually stop to pick up a stray dog are most likely animal people themselves. And I'd bet that those people will know about microchips. Of course that won't always be the case but I think that would be the most probable scenario.

I found a border collie a few weeks ago. He had tags with the home phone and name only, plus a microchip tag. I called the home number multiple times. I called the microchip and they called the home number too. Even the microchip company only had the home phone. About an hour later the guy called me back, he'd been out looking that whole time. Just think of the peace of mind he could have had an hour sooner if he'd had his cell listed on the collar or with the microchip company! I mentioned that to him!

Address would have been nice too. Would have saved you a lot of time. Not everyone would have been as patient as you.

If someone finds my dog roaming around, I would rather they know where I live.

I only have our home phone number, it says I am lost please cal my parents. The entire neighborhood already knows Rose. But I don;t want another stranger to know what name she actually responds to in case she does get lost. Since it is a home phone number my address is pretty easy to find nowadays. I am not scared of a stranger knowing where we live but I am scared of a stranger trying to keep her if they know her name. I have split feelings about the microchip. I have not done it yet. We are constantly with her and she does not stay alone for more that 2 to 3 hours a day. My stepson lives close by so there is always someone watching her and the house; sorry Rose - I forgot that you are the one watching the house.

Diesel kept getting his tags hooked up on stuff and losing them. These are the best tags I think! www.boomerangtags.com/page.php?...
I have his name , my name and my cell # on it.

We got the microchip in case Max slipped his collar off. While he is pretty much always with us, you never know what might happen . . . just thought it was a good idea for a back-up. He has managed to get his collar off a couple of times, and we do not always have it on him.

We had the chip inserted at Max's first vet visit when he was a puppy. He did not even notice.

Yes, that's your daily plan but microchips are for those instances when unplanned things happen...
