Well, if I were you, I would change my plates right away. The gesture would be much appreciated, I believe, particularly by the law enforcement community

When we moved to Maine back in '87, I took 2 weeks to change my plates. I received my first ticket after 8 days prior to changing my plates.

Most states give you at least 30 days to switch plates. I am always dragging my feet on this issue and when I lived in Maine I think it took me at least a few months before I got around to it. Nobody bothered me.

So glad no one bothered you! You did not live in Gray ( as in Life is just ok in Gray, courtesy of the Wicked Good Band)

IMHO, I personally think it is a gesture of common courtesy to change your plates ASAP if you intend to reside in that state. You know all your neighbors are checking you and your vehicle out as you drive by

You paid to get a license for your dog?

Our town counsel decided that we do not need to require such a thing from pet owners. Ooops, no we don't have a town counsel. My bad

I like having Maine tags on our cars too

The money for the dog licences go directly to the humane shelters....so I don't mind paying it at all.

It was only about $6.00. One of my dogs was adopted from a humane society in California......they do good work. The dog shelters here in Maine do a very good job of finding homes for dogs.

I can identify. I don't plan on moving for quite some time, but already tried to become a member of Eastport's Stage East Theater Co. Alas, 'tis not meant to be. They require you to have been involved in a production first.

I always paid to license my dogs, money well spent just to keep the dog officer happy. $6 bucks is nothing. At least if one of them happened to get loose and run off and someone found them, they'd know who they belonged too. Call it insurance if you don't like the word tax.
