Pet-ophiles beware? Oh, bite me!

Before you pet that friendly-looking pup, you had better scan him first.

USA Today reports that a new Colorado state law "requires implanting a microchip in dogs that injure someone". Such dogs also are entered into a statewide registry.

That's all well and good, but unless there's a supermarket checkout counter really close by, how the hell am I supposed to know if this dog's a repeat offender? Will he wait around while I boot up my laptop?

In the old days, all you had to do was check for foam around the mouth.
