Running of the dogs is a
fun day for beloved breed
It is the unmistakable breed that is the dogged
emblem of countless schools, universities,
football teams and even a nation.
The bulldog, like all dogs, is about to have
The ACT Bulldog Fun Day, also known as the
Running of the Bulldogs, takes place on
About 100 bulldogs will get together to
smile and slobber and raise money for ACT
Rescue and Foster.
An event spokeswoman said it was the second
year for the fun day.
She said it wasn't as organised as they would
like last year but it turned out fantastically.
"With every year we will progress and get
bigger,'' she said.
"Basically it is for the dogs. This is our
passion and that is what we do."
Bulldog Australia member Simone Angove
has owned bulldogs for five years and has fallen
in love with the breed.
"Their unconditional love for their owner and
family just doesn't compare with any other
breed,'' she said. They are great family pets.
Once you've had a bulldog, your home will
never be complete without one."
Meanwhile this Saturday's fun day will have
a bulldog photobooth, a kids table with a
colouring-in competition, face painting and a
dog sketch artist to draw panting pooches.
There will also be food available with stalls,
a barbecue and drinks available.
The day encourages breeders, owners and
enthusiasts to get together and talk about the
various aspects of their bulldogs.
All breeds -- such as Australian , British ,
French, American and Southern Cross bulldogs
-- are welcome to attend.
However no pit bulls will be allowed due to
the rules of the area where the event will
The second annual ACT Bulldog Fun Day

India trip provides deeper understanding
A small group of young leaders, including
20-year-old Siobhan Lineham from Canberra,
recently travelled to India on the trip of a
The three-week initiative known as the
International Youth Exchange was led by anti-
poverty organisation Oaktree. It was designed to
help youth from Australia collaborate and share
skills with young Indians passionate about
ending extreme poverty.
Siobhan said the trip was hard to sum up in
just a few words, but meeting young people who
wanted to make a difference was inspiring.
"They acknowledged there was a problem but
had the fighting spirit to keep going . . . they're
just really determined," Siobhan said.
"It changed my understanding of what they
term aid and development. It's just really about
empowering the people rather than just doing it
Siobhan, who works part-time with Oaktree
in Canberra, said the trip pushed the young
group to their mental and physical limits, but the
choice to undertake the adventure came easily.
"If I had gone to India as a tourist, I would
never have learnt so much or got so much out of
it. We were able to have honest and raw
discussions with youth and other individuals
from organisations. It gave me the capacity to
ask the hard questions and return with a very
honest understanding of India's context of social
change, and proved once again that empowered
youth can make an impact.''
Siobhan said she wants to empower her peers
in Australia to make a change in the world.
