To commemorate the return of nation Calendar to TVNZ1, Alex Casey tracks along the show’s biggest canine fan.
This Sunday evening at seven o’clock, Suki will set you back the tv screen and need that her parents switch on TVNZ1 so she will hear her favourite theme track.

She’ll be hoping there are pigs, maybe some farm dogs, but won’t be as enthusiastic about viewing bees. Suki is a 12 yr old edge collie, and she’s enjoyed Country Calendar her whole life that is doggone.
“She started initially to get enthusiastic about television whenever she ended up being simply a puppy, ” Suki’s owner and Greytown resident Maura Marron claims. “During the soccer globe cup we’d be waking up in the center of the evening to view games. There’d be food and clapping and plenty of sound, thus I think she linked TV with having a little bit of party. ” Even with New Zealand had been booted through the globe glass, Suki proceeded to get up for it to be turned on at 2am and run to the TV, whining.
From the time then, Suki’s appetite for screentime happens to be insatiable. “After the entire world glass she got actually into viewing any such thing with animals, ” Marron remembers. “One we were channel surfing and the movie Babe was on TV night. She especially likes pigs, therefore she simply sat here and viewed the entire film, she ended up being simply fascinated. ” Marron has since purchased Babe on DVD for Suki, whom she states happens to be acquainted with the storyline and “cries into the unfortunate bits.
