Chip Chip Hooray!

Me: “Boys, May is almost over, and we have not done our annual Chip Your Pets Month reminder post!”
Bentley Basset Hound: “An entire month devoted to giving your pets some chips. I love when you accidentally drop a chip on the floor for us. The nacho cheese ones are exceptionally tasty.”
Pierre Westie: “Chips are good, but I prefer her to drop some cake.”
Me: “I am talking about microchips.”
Bentley: “I don’t care how big they are as long as you share. It is Chip Your Pet month after all.”
Pierre: “Do you mean those tiny chips the veterinarian put in us in case we ever get lost?”
Me: “Exactly, Pierre. It is so important that pets are microchipped. The procedure only takes a minute and neither of you acted like it bothered you one bit.”
Bentley: “We are a manly duo. The truth is, it didn’t hurt at all. If it means the difference in being returned to home or ending up in a shelter, the choice is obvious.”
Pierre: “That’s the truth! Of course, a microchip needs to be checked at your annual wellness checkup to make sure they can find it. They use a wand like in this photo to see it. That is the same thing a shelter would do if you were ever lost.”
Me: “The first thing I did when we moved was put you both new id tags on your collars and update your microchip information. Dogs are more likely to get lost after moving to a new location during the first few weeks. Isn’t that right, Pierre?”
Pierre: “Sheesh! I accidentally darted out of the garage door and hightailed it down the street one time. Do you have to bring that up? It was embarrassing!”
Me: “You almost gave me a heart attack! Luckily, you ran along the sidewalk to where our new neighbors were sitting, and they caught you. What did you think you were doing?”
Bentley: “Hahaha! You were so busted! Mom came bringing you home in her arms like a wayward puppy. I haven’t laughed so hard in weeks!”
Me: “The point is that you could have gotten lost and if I hadn’t updated your microchip information, you might have spent some time in the local shelter. You would have been traumatized. That is worse than a little embarrassment.”
Pierre: “The point is that microchipping your pet is very important. It doesn’t matter if your pet stays indoors or outside, they need to have a microchip. We are always sharing amazing reunion stories on BFTB NETWoof News where the microchip made the difference.”
Bentley: “So get your pet a chip and why don’t you drop a tater chip on the floor to celebrate?”

Buggy Over goDog Caterpillars

Pierre Westie: “Let me just say that I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE goDog® toys. They are some of our favorites and Mom is not afraid to play tug super hard with them. I don’t think I’ve been able to kill one yet. This is our newest plush squeaky toy, The Caterpillar. I can’t wait to get a hold of him. Look at his eyes and tiny fangs. This fella is going to put up a good fight.

We received our goDog toy as influencers with Propel Communications in exchange for an honest review. We only share products that believe our readers would benefit from knowing about. GoDog and Propel Communications are not responsible for the contents of this article.
 Drat! This one is made with Chew Guard Technology™ and has a super tough and durable lining. This may take some work.
What do you mean to be easy? Do I look like I'd try to harm one purple felt ear on this adorable little squeaking bug? Your lack of faith is disheartening, Mom. Just sayin'.
Ha! She knows that I am going to try my best to dead this caterpillar. Its bright colors and funny face are endearing though. Perhaps, I'll let him live so we can play catch with him. He is the perfect size for a Westie's mouth. Do you hear that, Bentley?"
Bentley Basset Hound: "Oh, I hear ya alright. But you will fall asleep or go off barking at something and then 
Mr. Blue Caterpillar will be mine! It fits your mouth but it is fine for mine too. No hurry, I'm an expert at waiting.
In the meantime, let me tell our friends that they can find goDog toys on our Amazon Influencer page. We highly recommend their entire line including the Fuzzball."
Pierre: "Y'all should also follow them on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. They have fabulous giveaways every week! GoDog is tough for fun!"

Our top story is a new one for us…lava rescues. The eruption of Kilauea volcano on Hawaii’s Big Island has forced families to evacuate. Many without their animals.
