Dog license rant

Ok, since I am a woman, I can say this: somewhere a woman had a hand in this!

I went to the courthouse today to get my kennel license. $55 for a kennel license and ten tags -- five at $10 each and 5 at $1 each, which is fine, really. But I get them, and they are green and in the shape of...

The STATE OF OHIO!!!

Do you know, the state of Ohio is kind of pointy!!!

And, The middle of the top of the state, is kind of down from the two edges where lake Erie is. THAT is where they put the teeny tiny hole for you to find something small enough to affix the pointy nasty thing to the collar!

So even if you FIND a key ring small enough to fit through the hole, it will get all tangled with the rabies tags etc -- that is when it is not poking holes in your dog.

I said, "uhm, they will hurt my dogs."

She said, "because it is pointy, yeah, someone else was saying that."

I said, "I have no idea how I will affix these to the collar, do you have any hooks?"

She said, "no, this is all we got, we did not get the hooks this year.

NICE!

Just nice. I will have to spend the next six months trying to find miniature key rings!!! And for what, so I can dangle a pointy state of Ohio cutesy license on my dogs' collars.

Forget it. I am leaving them in the envelope in my dog-papers. I will produce them when asked.

I think I am safe in saying that no guy (in his right mind) would buy the tag that looked like our state -- not unless it was half the price of the other tags.

I don't think it had to be a woman, I think it was just a moron.

and they didn't even give you hooks ?? CHEAP CHEAP!

I never put the tags on my dogs, they sit in an envelope, I don't recall ever getting one in the shape of our state either,,it's been hearts, bones, circles, rectangles,,nothing pointy thank god !

The only tags on my dogs are their personnel ones, and chip tags, which they wear if off property, good luck finding small rings for those things!

I NEVER put the tags on my dog, they ALWAYS fall off during his play times so they are kept on my key chain which is with me/us at all times (I live in an apartment so I need them to get in and out).

I've lost so many tags in the past year with Stark that now I just don't bother. I have had the by-law ask for my tags once before when a bunch of dogs were at the park playing (really nice guy too, which I was surprised about! I guess it helps that all of our dogs are well trained, socialized and have great re-call) and I showed him Stark's tags, I told them why they were on my key chain and not on the dog, his response, "good thinking, I seem to loose mine all the time too".

Thats just dumb! Did they not think it would hurt the dogs? My dogs wear tags but they are shaped as bones.

New York kindly provides dog licenses that are oblong in shape and have two holes, so they can be riveted to the collar. Or Zipstripped, if you prefer.

Why not just Zip-tie the Ohio ones to the collar? You can move them up so they're flat against the collar and won't poke any of the dogs.

That woud be a good idea, the ones we get here in KW, ON Canada are too small with writting on them so you can't do that. Good idea though, might be worth trying Selzer!
