A day at the Nashville Humane Shelter

I took my grand doggie "Diggy" to the micro chipping special at the Nashville Humane Association where for $20.00 a Avid MicroChip ID is injected deeply under the skin. The wait was a bit long - 90 minutes - but for the most part, all the forty plus dogs present were on their best behavior, although some owners made the conscious choice to allow their dogs to leave "souvenirs" on the premises.

So I just found a good place to park ourselves free from landmines in the shade and waited our turn. Once our name was called, it only took five minutes and we were on our way back home.

The lady in line next to me (with her dogs pictured above) told me the procedure is normally a $70.00 to $100.00 cost, so that made the wait worth our time.

If you wanted to make the trip out but didn't, there's another session October 14, at Centennial Park; 11:00am-1:00pm taking place during the Dog Day Festival and Music City Mutt Strutt Dog Walk.

By the way, here's Sam & Lynette's story how you can share the love by adopting an unwanted pet and bring home some much-wanted love. Also read Brittney's story of adopting Cooper here.

We had our dogs chipped. I can't tell you how much peace of mind it's brought me over the years.

Kerry, Katherine, how does that work? It sounds like a great idea.
