Oh No - Goodbye & goodluck Scooby

Hi Pups & GirlGirl,

You wouldn't believe what happened.
Mama rang Central Animal Records (CAR) to finally update Scooby's microchip details, only to be told that he had a registered owner who had reported him missing/stolen.
Oh no how could that be !!
By law here in Australia CAR is required to provide name and phone number of the person with the dog to the person who is the registered owner. Scoobys owner called mama staright away and said he wanted to come & collect Scooby asap, because he had a break-in at his place and his 3 dogs (Scooby was one) was either stolen or escaped because the fence was cut.

So sad but no choice but to return Scooby to his registered owner after he had been with us for 2 months and was finally settling in !!

We still don't know exactly how Scooby came to the private rescue person, but have since been told that some people opearate as rescue groups and re-home dogs illegally because they don't like how the dogs are being kept.

Scoobys registerd owner had pictures of Scooby who he had since he was a puppy and Scooby looked in very fit condition and is a naturally lean dog. Also when Scooby re-met his owner he obvious had a positive realtionship with him - so as much as we just want him to stay with us mama think what if that happened to one of us - we would want to come home.

So although we miss Scooby lots - at least we had some time with him and played a part in getting him back home.

Scoobys owner is now talking to the police about bringing charges to the 'bogus' rescue group.

Bye bye Scooby - love you & live well !!

Hi, Bella.
That is so sad for you and your family, but its good to know that Scobby is with his original family and I am sure they love him too!
You are so nice taking care of him and now giving him back to his family.
Have a nice day

Hi Bella...
Well I guess that's a good thing...Scooby found his real home. I know you are sad, but I'll bet he is real happy to be back with his family.

You took really good care of him!!! You should be very proud of yourself!

Lots of Licks, Ruby

We don't think that's nice at all. Sadissimo. Is it compulsory for the new owner to do a Scooby blog?

Master and mistress were sooo worried when they took me for my jabs and chip in case I had been registered, but the nice vet man said I wouldn't have had to go back because they had looked after me for so long.

Bye bye Scooby, ruffed ya lots.

Hope everyone in BellaPack is feeling as ok as you can. What a blow.


Ferndoggle said...

Bella, that's sad & happy at the same time. I would have wanted Scooby back if he had been lost from my house. But I wouldn't have wanted to give him back if I were your Mom.

Sending kisses to the crew!


coco said...

Ohmydogness that is very, very sad for your family. But you were so wonderful to check to see if Scooby had another family somewhere missing him. And as sad as you must be, can you imagine how horrifying it was for them to lose Scooby in the first place? That is the worst thing I could ever imagine, getting lost. Thank Dog you were there to love and care for Scoobs until his family found him. And now you are heros of the bestest kind!

G'day Bella,

Hi Bella! So sorry you had to say goodbye to Scooby, but so happy for Scooby that he was reunited with his other family again.

P.S. I couldn't find an e-mail for you so send me one about the doggy bracelet you saw on the Five Happy Hounds blog (elefanlisa@hotmail.com). :)

Oh, Bella. We're so sorry for you to loose your friend. How happy for Scooby to find her family, though.

Oh Bella!
I'm sorry that you had to give Scooby back to his owner, but you should feel happy knowing that you helped Scooby get reunited with his person! My, if I ever lost mum, I'd be damaged!

chiyo said...

i am glad for scooby to reunite with his owner. but it is strange that he got to a rescue group. *scratch head*

don't miss him too much. you still have kuki and billy bob


Toby said...

Bella, I know it's hard for you and the rest of your family to see Scooby go...but you are doing the right thing. I'm sure Scooby will miss all of you dearly too, but he probably misses his owner just as much.

You and your family took such great care of Scooby and I'm sure he will be furever greatful for that.


ToFFee said...

hey! i heard mum sniffing while looking over my furry shoulders!

I'm sure your mum and you are sad of what happened to Scooby.

I'm sure his owner is happy to have scooby back and maybe you could still visit him.


Snowball said...

Hi Bella,

I understand that you must be very sad and will miss Scooby very much but at least he can be back to the home that he has grew up in and I am really happy to know that he wasn't an abandoned dog.


Gaucho and Verdi said...

umekotyan said...

As for scooby, former owner may be found by the chip. However, it is happy though leaving is reluctant.

Hi Bella,
You must have formed a bonding with Scooby by now and it's too sad to see him go. But I'm sure Scooby is happy to see his family again.

Balboa said...

that is so sad but happy too. I'm glad Scooby found his parents, but I know how much you're gonna miss him.

Hopefully you'll get to keep in touch.

Girl Girl Hamster said...

Ume said...

Frasypoo said...

Glad they found the owner!But sad for you guys!You need to give your mom a big kiss to make up for the loss

Tigersan said...

Oh my... what news! And what a story!!!

Happy-sad-happy thing me thinks :)()

Pearly said...

O wow, that was unexpected...but knowing that scooby will be in good hands... and well care for is something to be happy about.

PreciOus said...

Scooby will be happy back with his own mama and papa. Your mama is a great lady!


Murphey said...

Wow, here in the US people can ignore the microchip information if they want to, the vet can give them the number to call, but nothing makes them do it. So many times people never get their lost dogs back, so sad.


Super Boy & Baby-Licious said...

I know you will miss Scooby but maybe he will come by to visit you.

Suki said...

Aw, Bella, that makes me so sad that you had to give Scooby back, but you're right, it was the right thing to do :)

Think about how happy your parents would be if you were ever lost and they found you!
