Quick question - I think Booker's microchip has moved - I can feel and can also see a bit of a lump (like a bit of rice) on one of his shoulder blades. I use to be able to feel it in the middle just the slightest but now it's totally to one side and I worry that if he was to escape and then get scanned it might not be found?
What should I do? And can it annoy them? It seems like an awkward spot at the moment, not that it seems to be bothering him....

As for ID - if it's still over the neck/shoulder area they do scan a fairly wide area for chips so it should be OK. If it's easily felt you could talk to your vet about how difficult it would be to remove it and replace it, but you'd have to change the chip number with the CCCQ so get a good paper trail if you do that

He hasn't ever attempted to get out and he has a collar with tag and phone numbers on but I can't help but worry just in case...

As for a coat - our dogs had PJ's which covered their tummies and came a long way down over their tails for night time and a water-resistant fleece lined coat for walking/day time - always found this worked better than trying to get one to do both jobs. Weatherbeata, the horse cover people, make really tough weather resistant coats, most good pet supply places will have a selection though. For PJ's there's lots of people who make them to measure - search on here for some before you go
