Hi neighbours,

An Auckland dog owner is warning of the dangers rat bait can cause after her beloved pet nearly died after ingesting it twice.

Tracy Leach said her 8-year-old golden retriever Daisy first got sick about four weeks ago on their rural property in Glenbrook, south of Auckland.

She bounced back pretty quickly but Leach started to notice she was vomiting constantly and consuming a lot of water - causing her to take Daisy back to the vet.

Teachers' one-off $1500 payment will come through on the July 31 pay run, but the actual increase won't until September 11, eight weeks from now.

Brian from New Lynn

Delays updating teachers' pay to reflect their recently won pay rise has put unions' relationship with the Ministry of Education on thin ice once again. An update from Novopay announced staff have to wait another month before their hard-fought backdated pay increase kicks in. New Zealand … View moreDelays updating teachers' pay to reflect their recently won pay rise has put unions' relationship with the Ministry of Education on thin ice once again. An update from Novopay announced staff have to wait another month before their hard-fought backdated pay increase kicks in. New Zealand Educational Institute (NZEI) spokesperson Paul Goulter told members feel defeated. "This is just another blow in an already elongated dispute, to have the Ministry turn around at late notice and just say 'you're gonna have to wait' has just destroyed any trust that has been built up." Minister Chris Hipkins said on Twitter it's not good enough, and he will be following up. "A couple of teachers have sent messages asking why it takes so long to get their pay rises. It's the first time anyone has told me it could take this long and I'm not happy about it. "I'll be following up first thing [Wednesday] morning. It's just not good enough."

My partner and I are looking for a labradoodle puppy to kickstart our plans of starting a family. We are both dog lovers and have previously owned pets before. We are aware that there are good breeders out there but it’s just too expensive especially considering there is a need to put in a non-refundable deposit of up to $400 to secure your spot on the waiting list—I researched and contacted a few of them. We are hoping to not spend more than $800 or $1,000 for one, and would be better if we can adopt for free. We specifically want a labradoodle because it low to nonshedding and this is important because I have allergic rhinitis. Any suggestions or recommendations are welcome. Thanks! 😊
