Painted Guide dogs. These guide dogs, usually large, brown, plastic labradors with a coin slot in their head for donations, have been around for as long as I can remember. This year, several have been painted by celebrities to raise money for Guide Dogs Victoria. They are currently on display at The QV Centre here in the city of Melbourne. Anyone around the world can buy one of these as they are being auctioned on EBAY here. (I just placed a bid myself, but have already been outbid!) Get your bids in before they are sold on the 22nd April. Full information on the various celebrity artists and more information about the artworks can be found here at the Guide dogs website. This one is by Cam Bobi.
