I may be more attached to the land than I am already to dopty. and she already lead me to a good unexpected 15 minute cry after I found out she was already tagged (had a human counter part); so I had the vet call (it was the right thing to do. aggggh. the short of it is, I officially belong to her now. her records are in the mail to me. she is 9 months old, half lab, half border collie.
