I've just took Aleu out for the toilet; and this gorgeous tri coloured; Parti-coloured/Bi-eyed female border collie comes running up to me with no collar or tag on her. I ask the neighbours if they know her and no one has ever seen her before. So I go with my instincts; Popped a slip lead on her; take my dog back in the house and take her for a walk around the whole village. I went all around the village, I asked everyone I came accross, I asked all the shops and the police station but no one had ever seen this dog before. I finally decide to come back home and plan to take her to work with me tomorrow to get her scanned for a microchip when I woman comes calling after her. Anyways; I walk the dog back to her house where this guy is nearly in floods after losing her. The woman apologises and said, I'm afraid she doesn't get walked, so she keeps trying to escape. The woman starts yelling at the guy saying that the dog needs a collar and he is refusing to put one on her. I then learn that this isn't her first escape and she's escaped tons of times before. I was getting tempted to say, "Do you know it's illegal for your dog to not be wearing a collar and tag?". I then said to him, "Is she microchipped?" And they told me she wasn't so I was like, "I'm not being funny, but I've just walked all around this village looking for this dogs owner, and I work at a vets. I was going to take her to the vets tomorrow to get scanned for a microchip. What would we have been thinking finding her with no collar, no tag and no microchip?" Do you think I was really harsh for saying that? XD. I felt like I needed to tell this people how in the wrong they were. The guy then starts saying that he can't understand how she keeps getting out, and they show me their garden, which has like, a 4ft high fence. And I was like "Have you ever thought she might just be jumping the fence?" I then found a bin up against the fence that she could quite easily be using as a hoist up and over the fence. I'm hoping I've made them wake up a bit; but hopefully I wasn't too harsh either XD. The woman said if he doesn't start taking more care of her then they're going to get rid of her. I was like; You can swing her round to me any time lol ! Gorgeous dog XD I just hope these owners start taking more care of her. Stacey xxx EDIT: Forgot to mention; When I was looking for her owners; I came accross one guy and asked him if he'd known any one that had lost her and his response was 'How much do you want for her? I'll have her' !!!. If I would have been the 'wrong' kind of person I could of made some extra cash lol.
