In the heart of winter on November 12, 2008, a spunky, one year, 4 month old Lab/Husky mix entered Joy Marie's family. Datsyuk enjoys running with the family and chewing on anything and everything. But one day Datsyuk ran a little too far and escaped past his boundary, when the kids left the gate open. Joy says, "He got out of the back gate and we didn't even know it. You [] called us at 9:30 PM before we even knew. He was at a neighbor's house, but they didn't know where we lived."

Their pet was out for the day and they were so worried that something might happen to him. Joy is very grateful that Datsyuk was wearing an Smarttag from

" saved us a lot of stress because we got him back before we even knew he was missing! They even called us back the next day to make sure everything was okay."

Datsyuk is doing great today, and has a lot to be thankful for, thanks to his Smarttag.
