Sometimes a radio show just needs to bask in the glory of dogs. Because dogs are great. Open your ears to stories of the unbreakable bond humans have with their four-legged pals, and the lengths some people will go to for an animal they love.

Eau d’Wet Dog
Meet David Capra. David is a performance artist from Fairfield in Sydney’s West, and Teena is his sausage dog muse. Together they have bottled her scent and made a doggie perfume. But the world may not be ready for David and Teena, as they blur the lines between performance art and real life.

Safe beds for Pets
Pets can make us feel safe and grounded. In many cases they’re integral to our sense of home and people will go to great lengths to protect them – even, in some cases, at their own risk. But it doesn’t have to be that way, sometimes people and their pets just need a little help with their exit strategy. In this story we visit a special shelter at the RSPCA that provides a safe bed for pets, only not in the usual way.
