My entry for this weeks Friday theme is from the recent 'Graduation' of four dogs from ADA, (Assistance Dogs Australia).
ADA dogs aren't like guide dogs for the blind but I find it hard not to say that they are similar, in that they help their companion.
ADA dogs know over 100 commands, like turning on lights, assisting in answering the phone or picking objects up that are asked for.

Thanks Lossieloon; they do and they do deserve the graduation, and the publicity that goes with it; not to mention the opportunity to fund-raise.
You have a good weekend.

They are aren't they? These guys seem equally as clever. I lucked in coming across this ceremony happening in Forrest Place, which is like Dunedins Octagon, the centre focal point of the city. And as always I was armed with my camera, when I went to get some lunch, in this case.
