Thank you Dr. Pam!

I was about ready to start worrying needlessly!  Since mine are all shelter dogs, they are always microchipped.  I know someone will point their finger at me, but I hate the clinging sounds of tags and I don't put them on.  My dogs are never off leash and never out of my sight even if they are outside in the blocked wall backyard.  If they are quiet while outside, I check on them after 2 minutes.  I'm a smothering pawrent.

And I really think I could outrun Comet even on a bad day (I'd be too embarrassed to admit it if I couldn't).

In answer to the question of migrating chips, it probably doesn't matter all that much when the chip is put in; some just tend to migrate!  Even breeds with lots of skin and wrinkle like Bulldogs tend to keep their chips where they belong.  The best place is high up on the scruff of the neck.  I think that more migrate if placed too far back between the shoulders.
