AVA New Ruling

Daddy saw this article on The Straits Times yesterday. It's about a new ruling that requires all canines to be microchipped to curb irresponsible ownership here in Singapore. Pawsonally, Bond and i are all for it cos close to 10,000 unwanted animals are abandoned each year and canines make up more than 25% of it.

Daddy says that some irresponsible people buy a puppy on impulse, only to realise later that we need more than just food and water. Some are so taken by us when we are puppies as we are sooo... cute at that stage, not thinking that one day we will grow up and become like hooman adults, not sooo cute anymore. And of cos there is our teething stage, where we don't have pacifiers to soothe our irritated gums. There are so many reasons they get us in the first place, but some fail to realise that pets are for life. So sad... Luckily I've got Daddy and Mummy who care and love us so much.

Well, let us keep our paws crossed that this new ruling will really keep such sad irresponsible acts at bay.

Hi, Jose.
That is a good thing.
The same happens here in Mexico but we don't have laws to protect us! Like you said here people get dogs on impulse and later they just open their doors to let them go away and don't care what happens to those poor doggies. The microships don't work because there is no way to track them!
I don't have a microship but my mom and my grandparents never let me go out by myself, I am always with them.
Have a nice day

I think that is a great idea. Mom always makes sure I have my collar tags on & I have a microchip just in case.

Some hoomans are very stoopid.
