Microchips only work if people are responsible

Aloha, My pet is chipped when we brought it over some years ago. Obviously ours is tagged. Tagging allows a lost dog to be identified by someone finding it as they can contact the county or HS. A found chipped dog would require transport that many people would not want to do.

My two cents.

This woman needs help

I am writing this to raise awareness of an acutely-mentally-ill woman on Fuji beach in Kapa‘a. She has been sleeping on the beach, running naked, attacking people and defecating on the beach for weeks. She screams most of the night. This is bad PR for Kaua‘i. Many tourists enjoy walking along the bike path, however, when they come to Fuji beach they witness the sadness of a deeply-disturbed individual. Where can we get help for her?

    Put on more hula shows, put on more commercials on TV for Hawai’i, and just maybe you’ll turn that beach into a nude beach for people to sun bathe on.

    “Where can we get help for her?”
    How about an airline ticket to LA, Portland, or Seattle? Once there, she’ll have lots of company and will fit right in. Let the woke folks take care of her.

    Sounds like Nancy Pelosi is vacationing at Fuji Beach.

    Totally agree Rick, tagged animals can be returned right away to their owners; if you have to take them to the Humane Society to read the chip, you might as well leave them there. In that case the owner incurs the Humane Society fees. Much better to have your animal tagged.

    Wow. So much “aloha” on this thread. Nice reflection of our island (not).
