DOGS ESCAPE FROM RESCUE CENTRE

The mystery of the unlocked cages at a rescue center for dogs had the staff scratching their heads as much as the dogs scratch themselves.

 Just how were up to nine dogs at a time getting out of their locked cages at night and helping themselves to food and treats from the kitchen?

 Some of the staff even wondered if they had a ghost living at the rescue centre who was letting the dogs out. To solve the mystery they placed a camera in the building to see what went on at night. An hour after the staff had left, a friendly, wily dog of mainly greyhound descent named Red, was caught on camera opening his cage, then going to the other dogs’ cages and opening them.

 Red was a very clever dog, after watching the staff unlock and open his cage each day to take him for walks and to feed him, he soon worked out how to open it himself. It wasn’t long before Red was able to open the cages of his ‘friends’ so that each night they could all feast and play together while the staff was at home asleep.

Choose the word that best fits each blank space in the following passage.

Ca trù, the genre widely to be Vietnam’s most revered traditional form of music, was inscribed on the UNESCO List of Cultural Heritage in 2009.

Ca trù’s unique sound has roots that stretch back as far as the 11th century. First gaining popularity as for the aristocracy of Vietnam’s royal palaces, it later made its way into the inns and communal spaces of what is now modern-day Hanoi.

The ensemble is composed of at least three , including one female singing intricate poetry while tapping a phach (a small bamboo box), two musicians playing traditional , a long-necked lute and a praise drum. Ca trù is now found in cities across Vietnam.

New observers to the art often comment on how strikingly odd the vocal technique sounds, but it is the vocals themselves that are essential in Ca trù.
