The reason that we couldn't license him was because of his age in relation to his rabies vaccine.
Here, at least, a dog must be a certain age to get a rabies vaccine. And, in order to have a license, a dog must have a current rabies vaccine.
Now that he's had his rabies vaccine, the vet has sent his papers to the county. So, the license, or the papers to get it/send more fees should be heading my way soon.
That's interesting about S.C. I can't remember licenses not being required here at any point in my life. In fact, I have a very cool, old, brass license tag for a dog from S. California. I think it's from the 40's. I've not seen it for a while.
When I was a child, I bought it from a collectibles show with my allowance. (A quarter per time only, back then.) Looking back, I laugh. Of course I bought an old dog tag, lol!
No on the game word, btw...not today!
