    Stop flogging a dead horse. It is obvious that you have no support here and trying to browbeat members is not helping your cause.

    Any posts made under the name of Di_dee1 one can be used by anyone as I do not give a rats.

    Deluded, it's cleary not working. I don't think anyone in here wouldn't ever CHOOSE to have their pets chipped anyway. So compulsory or not is not relevant.

    NoChip just likes making noise I think.

    no-chip - you're what I consider a nutter. Go away and stop pestering everyone with your irrational theories.

    I agree it is verging on spam. I think the Mods need to do something.

    OK,playing devils advocate here ......

    Now to begin with my dogs are chipped.
    I believe its more for my peace of mind than anything because I have little to no faith of the actual chip system actually working.
    Sure there are your handful of good stories where animals have been reunited with their families but they are a very small minority.

    I guess the big issue is the word 'compulsory'.
    It seems more and more that pet ownership is becoming compulsory something or other.
    We're already told what breed of dog we can and cannot own.....so whats next?

    I think this needs some considerable thought and awareness of the following repercussions before we all let the emotion take over the common sense that generally prevails amongst us.

    Yeah but Chop, it's already compulsory in QLD n NSW, Tasmania is just catching up. I see NO issue with it being compulsory.

    Do I think there needs to be improvement with the records, YES! There should be ONE national database and that's it.

    I agree 100 percent about one national data base Shel,but I still have a problem with the 'compulsory' part.

    As I said,what will be 'compulsory' next ?

    exactly what I was thinking, but I do think nochip is flogging a dead horse, being from Tassie originally I know it will happen one way or the other, there are always people against everything down there, but stuff like this will always go through - if they can put into place BSL(which was not in place when I was there - very disappointed when I got to QLD and found out I can't have a pitty) this is nothing

    Well I have picked up a quite a few dogs loose on the highway where I used to live which was a tourist town with people passing through and farmers coming in with dogs on utes etc.and the ones that were chipped were almost always returned and most times the ones that were not we either managed to find homes for or were euthanaised although most were euthanaised witin a week or whatever the obligatory holding period was, before our rescue group was started up.

    I remember everytime I picked up a dog running on the highway thinking I hope this one is chipped. The ranger would come round with his scanner and it was always a relief for both of us when it picked up a chip. However the details need to be kept up to date.
