THE MAN is on to me...

All this week Mom and Dad have been talking about going on vacation. We aren't even going to PRETEND that we thought WE were going because I know better than that by now. And hey, we get to stay with Gram and Gramps and they are TREAT DISPENSING MACHINES. Crap, I am yelling like Tanner.

So in addition to the vacation talk, they have been talking about getting Tanner and I chips. I thought, cool Gram and Gramps will be giving us lots of tasty chips as treats.

Tanner was trying to figure out which chips he liked best, I definitely like the Lays.

Then this morning Mom dragged me out of bed into the FREEZING cold truck (Note from Mom, it was about 50 degrees) and said, lets go get your chips! MORE chips?? PAWESOME.

Then, somehow we were at the VET. We were whisked into the back and INJECTED with some kind of tracking device big brother is watching mark of the beast MICRO CHIP. WTF?!?!?!?

We are now part of 'the system'. omdog. If the Yankees lose today, this might go down as the worst possible day ever.

Hey Joey, TN Bull TerrOrs' DawgMom here, Pappy is in *time out* AGAIN (big surprise huh) but he begged me to please send this to you so you & Tanner can remember to put tin foil on your heads to stay safe. He says *Trust me Joey, you don't want this to happen, it's scaryful!*

I am being watched too. Do you think it means Obama is watching you? Maybe that's what Bo does at the White House. Maybe he gets to hang out in a big cushy ball bed and watch YOU. Makes me wish I was an American, because here, it is just big puffy Steven Harper and he is no where near as cute or smart as Bo.

Hey Joey,
So far, I have been able to avoid the microchip, but all three of my sisters got 'em.
I am trying to talk Mama & Dad into tattooing our phone number on the inside of my ears instead, cause it would look totally badass and way cooler than some big brother microchip.

I have a sneaking suspicion that your mom's been reading your blog and knows about the cool trips you guys take and stuff. Now she's got you on GPS or something. This just can't be good!

Well, at least you still have the trip to the grandparents to look forward to. Those chips are really a good thing even if you can't taste them. We have them and we keep hearing it is to keep us safe. - whatever.

Cool...were chipped too. Did you cry? Bobo did ... But I am a big girl and didn't.

Tell your momma to keep on the company as it took almost 6 months for us to get registered. Don't want to have gone through all that lying and ouchies for nothing.

Happy Howl-o-ween!

I wear tinfoil under my collar to block the signals. Teka thinks her electric fence collar protects her. In Azrizona, you might try ice packs. Can't hurt.

It must be big brother. Maybe, if you don't really do much, he will forgot about you.

I can't imagine Big Brother forgetting about you and Tanner considering all the flights you make out of the Country, all the funky people you know (your Mom, Dad, Lacie, etc). No, Joe, Big Brother is going to be following you everywhere from now on. Your only chance is to move to Northern Minnesota and hole up in a little cabin somewhere. Start cutting wood right away. Good luck, boys, I wish I could help you.

Chips injected from the vet! What a mean trick. I hope it didn't hurt a lot. Were you planning to run away?

I don't want this to be your worst day... But I hope the Phillies beat the poop out of the Yankees.

Hi, Joey!

I have everything possible crossed for the Yankees tonight!

Hey there Joey,
THose micro-chips are amazing gadgets. Here in SA they are widely used because dogs often get lost. All the vets, SPCA's and rescue sites have facilities which scan dogs immediately (for the microchips) when they arrive. So many animals are reunited in this way.
Enjoy your baseball and I am sure you are going to have a wonderful time with your Granny and Gramps.

I have a chip. Too bad it doesn't come with a GPS for my great escapes.

We didn't even try to watch the baseball last night. Did it ever stop raining?

Ahh, Joey, I have a chip too. Got it when I was just a wee pup. Always wanted to go to the supermarket and have them scan me to see if it works!

TWO DOWN for the Yankees!!! Now how's that for a Halloween TREAT!!!

Yep. We've got those chips too. Got 'em when we got sprung from the Puppy Mills. Too bad they don't have a strong magnetic force in them that draws us home when (yeah, right - how about IF) we roam too far from home. We've got a good feeling we may never get to test their effectiveness (other than at the VET's office when they scan us). But that's okay. We get notified all the time about dogs lost in our area, and we can all go on Lost Dog Watch and try to help in their return. One time there was even a WFT only a couple miles from our home. We went driving around looking for that chip bearing wire.

You know what? The more we think about this, the more we wonder. They have GPS bracelets for kids who don't bark too clearly. Do they have 'em for dogs?

Wag more. Bark less.

Lilly has one of those chips in her, but I don't think she has a big brother that watches over her. I'm just glad that they didn't put one of those things in me.
Peace out!
