    Hi wonderful NSM’s
    Thank you for al the work you do for families.
    Just wanting to alert to the fact that “Show Dogs” which is one of the films you have featured has caused great concern about some of it’s subtle grooming style content. There has been much protest and concern raised and the “questionable” scenes have been edited and deleted – however it remains important that this should still be made aware to families that this content has been part of this film.
    Thank you again.
