Doggie Tags – Dog ID Tag

Today we went for a family walk at Knole Park in Sevenoaks in Kent. It was raining as we left, but I am nothing if not an optimist. Sure enough as we drove, the rain stopped and the sun came out. As we parked the car we were treated to a beautiful rainbow above.  The National Trust allow dogs in the park so long as they are on a lead. Jyp isn’t reliable enough yet in any case not to be. He will come back so long as there aren’t any other distractions like people, dogs, cats etc. There are lots of deer at Knole, so any lead mishaps would doubtless result in an embarrassing ‘Fenton’ incident! Although he doesn’t go off the lead when he is out yet, I thought it would be a great idea if he had a name-tag with my mobile number on it. He is micro chipped but hopefully this will make it quicker to reunite us in the event of an escape. I decided to make him a bone shaped, enamelled one with his name in gold lustre on the front. I have engraved my phone number on the reverse. Here he completely exhausted after his walk, wearing his new tag. Perhaps I will make cat ID tags in the shape of a fish. They would make great Christmas Tree presents for pets.
