Tattoos NOT for dogs

I've got a story coming up on the PhilCast today about a guy in North Carolina taking some heat for getting his dog a tattoo.

I don't think a dog should have to be put through this for the pleasure of an owner who thinks it's cool.

Oh this guy is trying to say he did it for I-D purposes. Ya, right. That's what a micro-chip is for.

And I was somewhat surprised to read that even PETA is OK with doing this.

If a dog owner doesn't go micro-chip for an I-D then perhaps a small tattoo marking would be okay with me, although it is not something I would ever do to any dog I own.

Going to the extent that this guy did here is just wrong in my opinion. You like tattoos then keep 'em on your own body and leave the ink off your dog.
