Oh, Melbourne’s Dog Days of Summer!

Dog days?

Yes, Wikipedia defines these as the hottest, most uncomfortable, days of the Northern summer. That certainly fits some of Melbourne’s weather as we usher in 2017.

To kick start the year here are  four must-see short films about dogs  to help you survive the remainder of the school holidays, or those first days back at work, courtesy of Scientific American.

I particularly enjoyed Shelter Me, a 6 part American series about “rescue dogs” as we sometimes describe them here. Episode 1 Shelter Me: Hope and Redemption was lovely. It explores the journey of two strays from the streets to adoption, as well as the story of female prisoners training shelter dogs to become assistance dogs.

Be warned, however, you will want to rush out and adopt a dog or two.
