Please help... I know this sounds stupid but I only just found out that my dog needs to be microchipped. I'm panicking so much. I have social anxiety so I literally never go out unless it's to walk my dog. I take him out in the morning and then late at night so I don't bump into anyone. I have paranoia too. I play on my PlayStation a lot to get away from the real world...so I haven't had any news updates for a very long time. Half the time I find out something major happened months after it happens. So I looked up microchipping to see how much it costs and it says it's illegal for a dog not to be microchipped. I'm literally having a panic attack. My dog doesn't let me put a muzzle on him and he doesn't like strangers touching him. He doesn't even let me put a harness on him. I have to use a leash that has a collar attached. He's a lovely dog with so much joy and personality...But I don't know what to do. Will I get fined if I take him to get chipped? I'm in such a panic. What if I called the vets and explained this all? I won't even know how to take him to the vets since he does not even let me put a muzzle on him. He's 5 years old. I know...I'm not sounding like a good owner. I love him though and he's saved my life many times. He is my best friend... I can't lose him. I'm really trying here.
