Someone once said that’s it’s a dog’s world. And if this week’s new is anything to go by, they just might’ve been right. From TV stars to video games, to keeping dogs and their owners well socialised – catch up with this week’s news in our weekly pupdate – The Scoop!
Gary Fisher the Frenchie… coming soon a TV screen near you!
After the news of Carrie Fisher’s tragic death last December, we shared the news that Gary, her French Bulldog, was being adopted by Carrie’s daughter, Billie. We’re now looking forward to seeing some of the last work she completed, hitting the small screens at the end of February. If Carrie Fisher’s parting gift to the world is a new series of Catastrophe, it’s a gift that keeps giving because Gary the Frenchie plays a starring role, too.
Channel 4 sitcom Catastrophe was one of the last pieces of acting work Carrie Fisher completed before she tragically died last year. Apparently, Carrie Fisher’s comic character plays a bigger part in this season, so hopefully we’ll get to see more of Gary, too!
The third series of Catastrophe starts on Channel 4 at 10pm on 28th February.
Thanks to a new mobile application game anyone can take a good dog for a walk without leaving the comfort of their sofa.
The game Good Dogs has been created by people who brought the world the WeRateDogs Twitter account – a Twitter feed of the best doggos and puppers – rated. Good Dogs is an infinite runner game, so the objective is to keep the dog walking for long a walk as possible, avoiding obstacles and collecting bones as you go.
If you want to keep your dog well-exercised in real life, why not book some extra walks in with your DogBuddy dog sitter. And, with our new Walkies feature in the DogBuddy mobile apps, you can ask your dog sitter to send you a tracked walk when your dog gets taken for a walk.
Is Tel Aviv the world’s best city for dogs?
Citizens of Tel Aviv, Israel are tail-wagging-enthusiastic, chasing-squirrel-crazy and barking-mad for dogs. Not only did the city celebrate its first-ever Dog Day back in 2016, featuring a dog-friendly film screening of The Secret Life of Pets, the city has found a technology-enabled way to keep their dog loving inhabitants up to speed about all things dog-friendly.
The service is called ‘Digi-Dog’ and provides a card for dog owners giving access to special offers, reminders about vaccinations, lists of local vets, and of course, dog-friendly locations, such as beaches and parks in and around Tel Aviv.
