We now interrupt your very important and very relevant tech news for some very important and only tangibly relevant dog news that is sure to make your day if you’ll be heading to PAX Australia this weekend.

That’s right – there will be puppies. Because of Destiny. The video game, not the fate-fuelled way this has all come together. Let me explain.

You see, there’s an iconic line in the live-action trailer for Destiny 2: “For The Puppies”. So Bungie and Activision decided to take it literally, and raise awareness the Australian Working Dog Rescue.

By bringing puppies to PAX.

So from 27 to 29 October, at the Melbourne Convention Centre, you can meet and greet very good dogs including Nimble (who has starred in a short film, graced the front cover of Woman’s Day and is even a world record holder in the dog
high jump and current Australian record holder for a distance catch with a frisbee and my current record holder for the very goodest dog).

AWDRI is staffed by volunteers, working to find new homes for working dog breeds to rescue them from being euthanased in council pounds and shelters. The AWDRI’s motto is Adopt! Foster! Sponsor! – and at the event, volunteers will be handing out limited edition Destiny 2 dog biscuits – available exclusively at PAX in exchange for a gold coin donation to help raise charity funds.
