    If we stayed away from everything that could cause cancer we'd have to live in a bubble (presuming the actual bubble didn't cause cancer)

    My dogs will always be microchipped. I'd rather risk potentially losing them to cancer instead of losing them and never knowing what happened. (does that even make sense??)
    Damn night duty!!!!

    Hopefully it will not cause cancer maye that some dogs got a virus in there at chipping time? goodness knows, but we have to do it and it does reunite dogs with owners so should be done I think.
    Since we started doing it we have been able to reunite at least 6 lost dogs we had sold, and I was able to send some one in another state around to get one of our dogs which had landed in a shelter, if she had not been chipped we would not have known she was even there, the owner had dissapeared and had never changed over details so we were contacted, in future I think breeder details will be on chip info automatically which will allow us to rescue any of our dogs that do land in a bad situation.

    Well I have always asked my ph details at least be left on m/c reg records as a back up if owners can not be found. I have had a dog return from across the country that I had breed & the only phone nuber that was still available was mine when she was scanned. But I could only ask & many don't do it so I like the idea of the dog m/c deatails to always have breeders info as well as owners, it give me extra peace of mind. Great idea.

    Did you read their mission statement

    THEDOGPLACE MISSION STATEMENT, FOUNDED 1998, THIS IS WHO WE ARE
    opposes any entity which would adversely affect nature's most remarkable and inexplicable bond; that of the human and the dog. ... we recognize the dog as a gift from the Creator. ... share life with the dog of our choice, unimpeded by the laws of Man.


    That reads like they are essentially anarchists. Based on their desire to have no laws about dogs at all... I could argue they would oppose desexing dogs, approve of dog fighting and training dogs to attack people, and approve of treating dogs in a cruel way.

    Microchipping dogs for proof of ownership is one way to prevent the dog's usefulness to puppy mills and dog fights - ie it's much easier to prove a dog is stolen if it has a microchip that allows the original owners to be found or connect the dog to a stolen dog police report. So why would an organisation present an article about why not to microchip and no balanced article on the benefits of microchipping? Makes you wonder.

    And yes - the alcohol in mouthwash increases the risk of mouth cancer. The same as the alcohol in any other drink. Personally - I still drink alcohol - in moderation.

    Living in the city increases the chance of cancer. Living on farms and using toxic chemicals increases the risk of cancer. The stuff that comes out the back of most cars, trucks and buses - including the gas ones - causes cancer. The stuff that comes out of power stations run on coal, gas or uranium causes cancer.

    Breast implants cause cancer. I imagine the technology has improved substantially, as will the microchip technology.

    Best thing about the article? Remember when you are at the vet to check where the microchip is, and what the number is - that it matches the one you and the vet have on your records - it shouldn't change but it would pay to check nobody has copied the number wrong, and then check that your contact details on the registry website are correct.
