Veterinarian Ben Cunneen and vet nurse Natalie Beohm were good friends through their work at the Redlands Veterinary Clinic, near Brisbane.

As one half of famed media duo 'Jono & Dano', Ian 'Dano' Rogerson enjoyed a decade-long run in the 1980s with top-rating radio shows and a string of national television programs.
