We're currently campground hosts in an Idaho state park and had a campers' dog bite someone.  The owner of the dog did not have vacination records for the dog with him which caused him considerable problems.  Eventually, their vet faxed partial information which kept the sheriff from taking the dog, but they had to complete a lot of extra paper work.  Word to the wise: tags are good, but copies of current records for your pet are vital.

This is a great reminder for all of us who travel with our fur-kids.  I know we usually have current records in the glove compartment, but occasionally these things slip thru and get put last on our checklist. 

Also, I am careful when walking our dogs thru the campgrounds and have collars that they won't slip off and get away.  But last week in Wisconsin I had a fellow come up and want to "pet" my dog proclaiming himself a dog lover.  He ended up trying to "play" with her like she was his own dog, roughing up her fur and trying to hold her around her head.  This fellow could easily have provoked a quick bite to back him off before I could (back him off, not bite him!)  I will be checking our records before the next outing.  Thanks for the reminder!

Thanks for a good reminder.  This is especially true if you plan to cross over into Canada.  They will ask to see the papers at most entry points, so don't ruin your trip by not having them.
