A lot of our dogs we chip don't have an issue, most of the cats either. Though every now and then we got a dog or kitten that strongly objects to the whole process.

OTOH Microchipping skeeves me out! HEEBIES JEEBIES. So glad when unfixed animals come in and we can just get it done when they're under lol.

An additional $300 to pad our savings, thanks to some unexpected kindness.

I firmly believe they're worth the small amount of pain and invaluable if your dog gets lost or stolen... but the neeeeeedle is so biiiiiig.
Haha, if it soothes your further one of my coworkers was nearly microchipped. The gal chipping pushed right through the other side of the skin on a cat and stabbed her in the hand. She said for how big the needle was she didn't really feel any thing!

The first few times I did it it made my skin crawl but after a while of a vast majority of dogs/cats not reacting it got easier. To get AAHA certified I had to do my VERY first one in front of a vet to sign off and I gagged when I put the needle in.

Actually, that does soothe me further - well the top part. The bottom makes me laugh.

I actually do feel a lot less apprehensive. I'll definitely have it done when she's in for rabies.

I hate microchipping animals, whether they're awake or anesthetized. Wish I could shut my eyes during it.

They don't usually react much to it and I can't understand why lol. Completely sends shivers down my spine.

Yeah, I'm weirdly squeamish until I get used to something. It took me a while not to feel gaggy vaccinating then chipping and thankfully I don't have to directly watch caths.

A coworker of mine came over to study with me tonight. We are becoming pretty close. She's a super awesome and fun person who is fabulous to be around. I really enjoy her company and it's nice. Yay for making new friends!

Ran into an old friend today. I was in the gas station and he was the cashier. I was having issues with my card so he covered me. Super nice and we caught up on Facebook. Haven't seen him in years and looking forward to drinks to pay him back!

Some really, really great news from over the weekend.

1) I found my SB600 external flash and my two memory cards. Hadn't been able to find the former for months and thought I'd lost them both! Turns out everything was where they should have been - I just didn't think of it at the time.

2) I'm getting a car!! A friend got in an accident (he's fine) and the car suffered some rear damage. I spoke to a family friend about fixing it, and the friend/owner of the car told me I could have it after it's been repaired. It's a relatively new car so it was incredibly generous of him and his family.
