a BMW but couldn't spare the money to chip their dog
Yes so true! But people always think it isn;t an issue. Then don;t even put a collar and tags, as they are LEGALLY required to do, on their dogs either...

I also think irish vets charge *ridiculous* prices for chipping -- on average around €45 in Dublin! Chips cost just a few euro. Why vets cannot chip for €10 is beyond me.
