Remember when WasteWatch discovered that the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade had given $16,500 of your money to Guide Dogs Queensland, so that they could provide 10 Labrador Retriever puppies for Japan?
“DFAT: promoting Australia’s interests, one untrained Labrador puppy at a time,” we said then.
We thought perhaps there were better ways of fostering ties between Australia and Japan.
Unluckily, DFAT didn’t agree, and this year, Guide Dogs Queensland is back.
And it seems like the going rate for puppies is increasing.
See, the department recently gave away $17,050 of your money for the provision of only four guide dog puppies to Japan.
There must be a desperate dog shortage in Japan at the moment.
