This show looks at domestic animal welfare and primary health care through the relationship between humans and their domestic animals.

This highly entertaining, interactive and informative show looks at the issues of basic domestic animal welfare and primary health care through the eyes of a young child.

The child is thrown out of home and meets a stray dog, Wafi, who is in the same predicament. The two form a special friendship and discover new ways to take care of each other. A villainous man, Mr Jacobs, takes them in and puts them to work stealing for him to cover their food and board. They attend an Animal Welfare meeting at the local community centre to steal as much as they can, but end up getting so involved in all that is being taught that they forget to steal. Mr Jacobs is so angry that he accompanies them to the next meeting.

The show looks at the development of these relationships and compares the various attitudes towards domestic animal welfare.

With songs, actions, interesting characters and a life like puppet of a dog, this show has proven to be a hit with all who see it.
