Animals in cars

Andrea from Mission Bay

Hello everybody. Well we have had some very hot days and i find it upsetting to see dogs in cars at the supermarket with just a little bit of window open.When a dog is hot they will pant and this is to regulate the breathing,sometimes it works but if it doesnt pour some cold water along the back of there spine. A little bit of window wound down will still make your dog very hot and stressed and that is because dogs only have 2 places with pores that breath,that is there paws and nose,unlike humans who have pores all over ,so leave your dog at home because they will be more comfortable and dont forget to leave fresh water out and if having a barbecue dont give you pets hot food off the barbie,let it cool first.

Pohutukawas are in bloom

Amy Rope from Remuera Rise by LifeCare Residences

You may have noticed the beautiful Pohutukawa tree flowers are in full bloom 🌺🎄

We all know this iconic Kiwi Christmas tree is an important symbol for New Zealanders at home and abroad. But did you know "Pohutukawa and its cousin rata also hold a prominent place in Maori tradition. Legends tell of Tawhaki, a young Maori warrior, who attempted to find heaven to seek help in avenging the death of his father. He fell to earth and the crimson flowers are said to represent his blood."
