"Not My Dog": Tales from Puppy Raising

Wednesday, July 26, 2006

Like a bad Lifetime movie.....

When Murphy went in for his vet work, they scanned his microchip and made a shocking discovery.
He wasn't Murphy. He was Maddox.
My puppy was switched ... well, not at birth, but somewhere between GEB and Maine. We were supposed to get the puppy who wound up in Freeport.
So ... I asked the kennel manager slowly ... what exactly does this mean now?
"Oh, we switched their names in the computer," she said. "He's Murphy now in our records."
If only it were this easy for switched babies.

(For the record, we are glad we got this one, and this explains some things. I'd always wondered why the "runt" (6th of 8) Murphy outweighed his 'firstborn' brother by a good 20 pounds.)
