FRAMINGHAM (10/06/2003) - A few weeks ago I broke down and RFIDed my dog, Mrs. Beasley. She'd released herself on her own recognizance from others' care twice, and after the last episode--involving four days at large in Woburn, Mass., and a close encounter with a commuter train--it seemed entirely fitting to inject a radio frequency identification chip the size of a grain of rice under her skin. The chip contains a unique serial number that will match Mrs. Beasley back up to me should she be turned in to a shelter or vet that uses an RFID scanner.
