Design #1 “A Delicious Doggy Diet” 狗狗的食物
What should our doggy friends eat and not eat? While we may think some things are delicious, they can easily upset our furry friends’ tummies. Some of these innocent items includes chocolate, grapes, and onions.
狗狗可以吃什麼，不可以吃什麼呢? 我們覺得好吃的東西也許會讓狗狗中毒或拉肚子，比如說巧克力，葡萄和洋蔥, 等等
Design #2 “Friendly Encounters of the Canine Kind” 和陌生狗狗的邂逅”
Coming across a dog we might not know, we should approach slowly because we might frighten our new friends. A smile, slow movement, having small treats or toys with the OK from the owner, are some ideas. The doggy friend pictured is actually a Bulldog not a cat!
遇見陌生狗狗時, 我們要溫柔有耐心。因為他們容易受到驚嚇。一個微笑，輕緩的動作. 如果對方主人允許，也可以給牠們玩具和零食.(圖畫裡小朋友畫的是鬥牛犬不是貓!)
Design #3 “Happy Dog = Happy Owner” 快樂狗派對 = 快樂狗主人
How will our furry friends be happy? Plenty of walks, exercise, games, healthy diet, regular checkups, and love are ways to ensure happiness. Pictured here is a party thrown for our friends that just came out of the doggy salon! Celebrated with music and a healthy treat!

All proceeds back to workshops and animal welfare organizations in Taiwan to assist our furry friends. The organization selected this time is Animals Taiwan. Adopt, don’t buy!
Teachers started off with a short story detailing the life of an abandoned dog and then broke into three small groups to discuss how, once a dog has been adopted, does one care for him. This included a healthy doggy diet, how to approach him, and also steps that should be taken to ensure a healthy environment. They drew out a few designs and the teachers began the first step of silkscreen printing to carefully transfer the kids designs onto transparent paper, then headed to the washroom (ad hoc dark room) to lay this under the exposure lamp to create the very specific mesh screen. Screens were stapled into the frames and ready for the T-shirts.
