Do you think Bronte knows that she's getting implanted with an AKC Microchip on Saturday?

If you are a pet owner living in the Texas panhandle I hope you will consider doing the same thing for your sweet canine on Saturday, September 15 at Hastings Entertainment on Georgia Street. The Panhandle Kennel Club will be on hand from 11:00-1:00, offering this special service. And if you stick around, I'll be reading SKINNY BROWN DOG at story-time, followed by a signing. What a great tie-in!

Kaurie Jones happens to be the President of the Panhandle Kennel Club and the book manager at the Georgia Street Hastings store in Amarillo. Today she told me a heart-tugging story of an owner recently being reunited with her pet after two years. This victory happened because the pet owner cared enough to have their pet implanted with a microchip. The American Kennel Club says, "Lost pets implanted with AKC CAR's modern microchip can be easily identified." And they claim, "More than 320,000 pets have already been recovered to date." That is incredible. I'm proud to be a part of this event. Thank you Kaurie and Hastings for letting Saturday go to the dogs!
