Hi Tim,
I was just reading the article about "Sai", the dog who was reunited with his owner after a year thanks to a microchip. I work in an animal shelter and recently had a lady come in to reclaim her dog who had come into us after an amazing two years! Thanks to a microchip, we were able to reunite them and everyone involved was very touched by the whole story. Just proves how effective and worthwhile microchips can be!!!!

Hi pup_87

Wow! Two years! That's amazing. Makes you wonder the stories he'd be able to tell about all his adventures during those missing couple of years! If only dogs could talk...
