We have a fenced in yard and I just got Ruthie micro chipped the other day at the pet fair in our county. My biggest fear is someone stealing her cause I know I would never get her back. We don't leave her outside if we aren't home and if she wants to be outside we keep an eye on her. Luckily I walk her so much, she knows everyone and everyone knows her or me in our neighborhood. They all know her name. So if anything did happen, I at least know if people see her with the wrong people, they will know. Ruthie isn't a roamer either, she's not going anywhere without me or her dad.
