"Pampering the Pooch" by Leonard Low
“Pampering the Pooch” by Leonard Low

Sarah Rogers wrote to me to tell me about a Free Dog Grooming Day for those affected by the bushfires around the Whittlesea Area.

So if you’re around there, why not go get your dog squeaky clean for free! Or if you know anyone nearby, let them know.

Here’s the Blurb:

We are a group of mobile groomers from around Victoria who have been saddened to hear of the human and animal suffering in the recent bushfires.

We would like to offer our services to groom your dogs at no cost.

Please bring your dog down for a free pamper!

When: Sunday 15th March 2009, 10am – 4pm

Where: Whittlesea Vet Clinic, 9 Laurel Street, Whittlesea

For further info call Barb on 0433 831 421

Could your dog be a university boffin?

Whew! We made it through our first “for TV” season of Hound TV.

It will now be repeated on Channel 31 Melbourne while we:

  • Work on our second season, which will air from June
  • Make up a DVD set of the first season
  • “Remix” some of the season stories for release here on our website / feed / podcast

A big thanks to all of you who helped out, whether personally or just by watching the show. Good on ya!


On a totally unrelated note, Tammie King e-mailed me to let me know that Monash University researcher and erstwhile Hound TV podcast guest Dr Jacqueline Ley is looking for dog owners to participate in questionnaires about their relationship with their dog(s).

To qualify, you need to have owned the dog for at least 12 months.

The questionnaires include a personality questionnaire for your dog, and a short one for yourself, a questionnaire about how attached you feel towards your dog and some questions about the activities you do with your dog. Ley advises that it takes about 30-45mins to complete all the questions.

Full details on the dog questionnaire page at Monash University.

Cheers,
Steven
