7 Days with 7 Dogs – a Dog-umentary

Mik got a movie recently from an Australian production company, Laughing Owl Productions.  The name of the movie/DVD is titled “7 Days with 7 Dogs“.   We just finished watching it and I must say . . . I was impressed.

7-days-with-7-dogs

At first, I was just lying on the floor by Mik’s feet … I mean, what did I care about 7 other dogs running around in Australia?  But then my ears perked up a bit when I heard that these were all Rescue Dogs.  And many of them were pretty old but they seemed to be having a really great time.  We were all shocked when the family took off with all 7 dogs to go on Holiday.   We call it vacation here, but Holiday sounds like a lot more fun!

It was an entertaining dog-umentary and we would certainly recommend it, especially if you are interested in seeing the wonderful life these people provided for a crew of Rescue dogs.  And the scenery and music was well worth the watch.   For more information about this movie and others filmed by Laughing Owl Productions, go to http://www.laughingowl.com.au

We are giving away 1 DVD copy of “7 Days for 7 Dogs”.  Please leave a comment here and one random winner will be chosen from the comments.  Giveaway will end February 12, 2009.

Rescue Dogs at Hearts United Animal Sanctuary

While I was looking around on the internet while Mik was outside this morning, I came across this place that all Dogs and people should know about.  It’s called Hearts United for Animals and they take in animals … lots of dogs … that were abandoned or mistreated.   What a wonderful place this is.  There are NO cages, just big fields of grass to run around and play.  Hey, that sounds pretty good to me.
