here’s a saying “It’s a dog’s life.” Well it was on Saturday when the Sydney Opera House came alive to the sound of high-pitched music and howling dogs.K-9 lovers walked their pets to an open-air concert for dogs.
Organizers estimated about 1,000 dogs showed up to enjoy the free music concert.Acclaimed American musician Laurie Anderson wrote a 20 minute piece for the occasion.
Dogs of all shapes and sizes were there.”I’m a music lover and I go to lots and lots of concerts and I thought he might as well too.”Anderson performed with fellow musicians at the free concert as part of the Vivid Live festival in Sydney.While dog owners could hear the music, some of the strange tones and high pitches were certainly geared for the dogs to appreciate rather than their two legged owners.
[Dr. Geoff Golovsky, Veterinarian]:”It’s fantastic, it’s great! It’s a testament to Laurie and her reputation and the organizers of the event. It’s fantastic and there’s been no problem with the dogs. Everyone’s been responsible.”
Anderson appeared to enjoy the day and was very happy with the turn out, especially as it was a special occasion – her birthday.
