This is something I’ve been thinking about lately. On my walks around town (and through the occasional email) I’ve been noticing a ton of lost dog posters. And I’m just wondering why there are so many lately? I know one dog slipped its collar but that seems rare to me. How do all these other dogs get lost. Do they run out of the house, jump fences? What’s the deal here? I’m also wondering about one poster that said the dog had a microchip. Can’t they put a GPS function in the microchip?

It’s actually quite sad. The effort that has been made with many of these posters (including rewards offered) clearly shows that the owners are terribly distraught. But I’m seriously curious – how do so many get loose? Have you guys noticed a lot of posters lately?
