Do you love your dog? Do you love someone else’s dog? Do you just love dogs? SAT has two double-passes to the Sydney DogLover’s Show to giveaway.

All you need to do is post a photo on our Facebook page, tweet me @fawcettanne or, if you eschew all social media (good for you!) just send us a good old fashioned email with pic showing how much you love your dog BY MIDNIGHT AUGUST 9. For example, like the one below, provided by the Sydney Dog Lover's Show.

The Sydney Dog Lover’s Show will be held at the Royal Hall of Industries and the Hordern Pavillion at Moore Park on August 15 and 16 and with commercial and educational stalls all devoted to dogs.

Whilst it’s all about dogs it is important not to take your dog there for reasons explained on the site.

Do you breed dogs or know someone who does? Here’s your chance to participate in research that will influence the regulatory framework around breeding of dogs.

It is an anonymous online survey aiming to find out about breeding practices and the companion dog market. In order to conduct the survey you will need to have handy records of litters bred in the 2014 calendar year.

To participate visit here.

If you’re interested in saltwater crocodiles (who wouldn’t be?) there is a free webinar from the World Aquatic Veterinary Medicine Association on diseases of farmed saltwater crocodiles being given by Dr Cathy Shilton. Whether you’re for or against crocodile farming it is useful to appreciate the diseases associated with captive husbandry of this species. Register here.
