British Author Wins Prestigious American Writing Award
In Search of the Truth About Dogs, a DVD written by Catherine O’Driscoll, has received the prestigious Award of Best DVD of 2008 by the Dog Writers’ Association of America. Winners will receive Maxwells – the Oscars of the dog world.
In the film, Catherine O’Driscoll interviews a number of leading vets, including Richard Allport, Michael Fox and Christopher Day, the scientist Gary Smith, and professional dog trainer Keith Dickinson. The heart of the film is provided by enthusiastic dog lovers from the UK, America and Canada, who express their joy at the health of their friends since changing their dogs to raw, biologically appropriate food, and saying ‘no’ to unnecessary and potentially harmful vaccines.
In Search of the Truth About Dogs was funded by Canine Health Concern (CHC) members, a group of dog lovers who, since1994, have been campaigning to prevent unnecessary suffering in Man’s Best Friend. The group’s remit is to promote real food for dogs (not processed junk food) and to see the end of unnecessary annual vaccination. None of the members have received any return for their generous donations, and the funds are being re-invested in further outreach programmes.
Award-winning author Catherine O’Driscoll says, “Over the years, we’ve produced newsletters, written articles and books, developed a website, circulated leaflets, held seminars and workshops – anything we could think of to get information to dog lovers that might save their dogs’ lives. But people are busy, and it’s hard to influence them when corporate marketing machines are telling a different story. We felt that a DVD might make a difference – people can sit down in front of the TV and relax, and hear the truth for themselves.”
Despite its controversial subject matter, In Search of the Truth About Dogs beat off stiff competition from the best in the international dog world. “We’re delighted,” adds Catherine O’Driscoll. “We hope the Award will mean that even more dog lovers will get to see the DVD, and even more dogs’ lives will be saved as a result.”
Although Catherine, as the writer, is the recipient of this prestigious Award, its success is very much a team effort. A strong production team included producer Brian James, editor Nick Bunting, cameraman Andrew Dishman, and executive producer Rob Ellis, (Catherine’s husband and fellow CHC director), who also composed and performed the soundtrack, and – not least – the CHC members whose love for dogs prompted them to fund the film.
Dr Kim Bloomer, Aspenbloom Pet Care, comments: “I knew this DVD would be good, but it’s better than good. I’d recommend this video to anyone desiring a more natural, healthy way of caring for their dogs. Catherine has an elegant style and a non-confrontational way of presenting the facts about canine vaccines and proper nutrition for our carnivorous canines. If every breeder was able to hand this DVD out with each new puppy we’d begin to see a lot healthier dogs all over the world.”
