And, by the way, his name is Rascal.
Like we figured, the owners had no idea Rascal slipped out of their house for an unsupervised Sunday night stroll. Luckily, Rascal had only been out for a couple of hours — if that, according to the owners — before we found him.
And like many dog owners (including us), the owners didn’t know they had to register the microchip with the Hawaiian Humane Society. It’s something all of you with pets should do today.
Skin allergies are surprisingly common with dogs, and Cavalier King Charles are no exception. The owners have been trying to figure out what’s wrong with Rascal, and changing his diet was one of their many attempts. (If anyone has suggestions or tips I can pass along to the owner, post ’em here.)
Pet ownership isn’t easy, especially if you’re trying to provide a safe, healthy and fun-filled life for your animals. And it’s particularly difficult when your pet is suffering from a disease, injury or condition like Rascal.
By this afternoon, he should be reunited with his family and sleeping in his comfortable bed. Thanks to everyone for your help in tracking down his owners — for the re-tweeting and Facebook posts — and sending your happy thoughts to Rascal. He’s going home!
