Nine monologues by dogs, performed by three to nine actors, all male. Some are comic, some tragic -- all are ultimately about humans and men in particular. Themes include violence, revenge, love, loss, mateship, bigotry, crime, sex, competition and vanity. The actors do not act "like dogs".

'This is an engaging and clever piece of writing. Some of the monologues are hilarious and others will put a lump in the throat of even the most cynical.' Drum Media, March 8 2005.
'The monologue themselves vary in length from about a minute to ten minutes, but each one is exactly its right length. They're just perfect; the writing is terrific, by turns witty, very emotionally engaging at times, almost poetically structured in some cases; sad, tragic, funny: in short a really super show.' Geoffrey Milne, ABC FM Melbourne
