Last summer, Kip the Cardigan disappeared from the yard of his owners’ home in Pecos NM. Because the property is gated — no road nearby, and because Kip has suffered IVDD and was not as fast as a Cardigan can be, we surmised he had been snatched by a lynx (seen prowling the area). His heartbroken people walked miles looking and calling, but never found him.
Today the Santa Fe Animal Control people called his owners because they had Kip, had scanned his microchip, and determined his owners’ phone number. The owners are driving to Santa Fe tomorrow to claim him. I don’t know any details — his condition — I don’t know. What I do know is WE MUST ALL MICROCHIP OUR PUPPIES. Kip is coming home because he was microchipped. Six months — and Kip is coming home!
