Music for Dogs, a “high-frequency concert” for canines, will be held outside the Sydney Opera House during the Vivid Live festival. It’s being billed as “an inter-species social gathering on a scale never seen before in Australia,” the BBC reports.
The couple said they have experience making music for at least one dog- – their rat terrier, Lollabelle. “She likes things with a lot of smoothness but with beats in them,” Anderson said.
She said the inspiration for the performance came while she was backstage at an event and thought: “Wouldn’t it be great, if you were playing a concert and you look out and you see all dogs?”
The show will last for 20 minutes as she says “dogs don’t have a giant concentration span.”

Authorities are investigating a report that six dogs were stolen from a Missouri dog shelter by thieves who demanded a ransom for their safe return.
Anna Madsen, 64, who runs the Love a Dog Rescue and Sanctuary near Farmington, says she fears for her dogs, and for her own life.
Madsen says she arrived home Saturday night to find her house in disarray, with one of her old bank statements and a ransom note stuck to a wall with a knife.
The note said six of her dogs had been taken and demanded six figures in cash or the dogs would be killed.
“I guess they thought I had money,” Madsen told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
Madsen said the missing dogs are Gizmo, a Chihuahua and Yorkie mix that was the sanctuary’s mascot; Moses, a Maltese and poodle mix; Lizzi, a rat terrier; Jack, a black and tan Pincher; Jenna Marie, a white Chihuahua with brown spots; and Snickers, a black Chihuahua.

“He was just gone. He just disappeared,” said Krenn, who works for WDVE radio. “I’m just beside myself. As every pet owner knows, this is a worst nightmare.”
