Many of us enjoy walking the dog but and while most of us are great at being responsible pet owners there are a few people that may need reminding to please be mindful of others while out walking your dogs in particular if you are walking your dog off leash.

If your dog is off leash it must be under control at all times, if you cannot ensure your dog will obey then please keep your dog on leash.

It is your job as a responsible dog owner to ensure your dog is under control at all times, dogs should not be chasing and terrifying the wildlife at anytime remember you are a visitor to their environment and should be respectful of this.

Also please be mindful and do not allow your dog to approach others uninvited ( particularly of leash ) as not everyone or their pets may be comfortable around dogs and we should most definitely be respectful of this at all.

Mobile vaccination buses will be rolled out in Auckland from Thursday, in the style of Mr Whippy ice cream vans.

A similar initiative was launched in Australia at the start of the month, and buses became known as “Jabba the Bus”.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has challenged the public to come up with a better name, but has ruled out “Busey McBusface”.

What do you think the vaccination buses should be called?

Two Cats (1 Male/1 Female) requiring a forever home
Ginge (Male) and Blackie (Female)
Both cats have been well loved and spoilt and as such deserve to find the same in their new forever home. My Uncle has recently gone into care therefore re-homing them into loving homes either together or seperate of one another is my priority. Blackie is the elder of the two and is very affectionate with an adorable personality and a cute squeak when she greets you. Ginge is a bit more independent however still enjoys a cuddle and pat. Their home is currently in Army Bay, Whangaparaoa and each kitty will come with a supply of food, flea treatment and a vet check (in Level 3). I would love to take them however we have two dogs and they are on the timid side in new situations. My thoughts and preference would be a home that has no dogs unless they are ambivalent towards cats.
