Well i have finally got Konas papers from the SPCA where he was before beagle paws took him.
Well according to his surrender papers his name is Cona and he was 5 years old at surrender time(which would make him about 6 now)Which is what i always thought his age was.
He is also microchipped so i got the chip #(which was on the surrender papers too) and went on to EIDAP site and according to that he is 2.5 years old (DOB Oct.31/2006),name Rocky.according to the surrender info and microchip info it was same owner so you would suspect she would have known the date differences.
I actually like the name Rocky and if his birthday is Oct.31/2006 he is younger than Kass DOB May 10/2006.
Hmmmmm

Can the vet give you any indication of his age? That's a real big discrepancy!

Wow, that is interesting. I wonder if the SPCA got their records messed up when he came in. I would think the info. on the micro chip is the most accurate.

Try going into another room and call Rocky and see if he comes. But don't do it in an overly animated tone, you want him to come by name not by the sound of someone calling him. Does that make sense?

Wow that is a huge difference! I think the vet could probably give you an idea as to which is more accurate.

Very strange. Hope you get to the bottom of this. The microchip is usually accurate and a vet would have filled out the form. Have you tried reading the microchip with a machine? Maybe you got the microchip details for the wrong dog.

Don't know how much a vet can really tell, all the three vets who looked at the Bagel when I first rescued him could estimate was he was at least 3, probably not more than 5 or so. Now if indeed you have a possible B-day of Oct.31/2006 then even if you ain't sure, go ahead and celebrate, the Bagel kinda thinks October 31 might be his B-day as we always do some special on that day, after all it is a Holiday for us and not because it is All Saints Day or Halloween.

It kind of fits that he is younger than we were told....alot of people always assume he was the youngest and were surprised when i said no he was the oldest....
I am planing on keeping his birthday Oct 31/2006.
