Dewards from friends of animals

This is Dewards at the friends of animals. (www.friendsofanimals-nf.com/). You can walk there dogs and adopt them. They all are happy for a new home. And are such good dogs. Most of them just need a bit training to be the best companionship on your side. Dewards looks like a french hound. He is about 2 years old and living now for 1 year at the friends of animal center in Athens. He is funny and a good companion. He needs to run and have enough exercises. He jumps up on people but he is easily to train because Dewards is an easily trainable soul with tenderness.

Anna with Benji at Syntagma Square, Athens, Greece

I met Benji when I saw a man tying a camera around his neck. We are making a movie – “How to See Greece Through the Eyes of a Dog,” he told me and introduced himself as Magnus from Schadenfreude Films. This is Benji. Hes a stray and lives here in the square. But he also lives with me. Benji looks at me with his golden eyes.
How to see Greece through the eyes of a dog! Wow! What an exciting topic!
I told Magnus about the book of dog stories I had written, and thats how I ended up taking on a starring role in the film. My role is the stranger in Greece whos written a book about dogs. He and his colleagues filmed me in Syntagma Square in central Athens, where I drew a charcoal portrait of Benji and was interviewed about my book and about the role of dogs in Greece. Check out this short video on YouTube. With a little luck, we’ll be able to broadcast the whole movie with more actors on the Greek public broadcasting channel NERIT.
