The Team Reporter from Stuff

Hi neighbours,

We live in unusual times. It all gets a bit much some days. So we're bringing you a much-needed dose of positivity to remind you that there's inspiration, kindness and quirkiness out there too.

You can check out today's edition of The Antidote - which features a cute puppy, the UK's longest-married couple, and Stewart Island's "savage" New Year's Eve here. If you'd like the Antidote delivered direct to your inbox, sign up here.

SPCA Pet of the Day: Meet Poppi

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Poppi has found a new home courtesy of the SPCA.
"Poppi is having an amazing life with my partner and I, and her older brother in the Hutt Valley! Every night she sleeps on our bed curled up with her big brother Milo. Milo and Poppi are inseparable. They spend 100 per cent of their time together, whether its playing in the garden or cuddling together at night. She is a very happy and well treasured kid!"
