Poll: Should dogs be allowed in cafes?

The team from Neighbourly.co.nz

Dogs lolling beneath cafe tables while their owners sip lattes or glasses of pinot would have been unthinkable 30 years ago.

Now it is just the way Kiwis roll, with a raft of dog-friendly dining options available throughout the country. What do you think? Should dogs be allowed in cafes?

Probably the Russian variety with pale violet flowers.
Comfrey is a must have in any garden. Easy to grow and a great source of natural fertiliser. Their very long tap roots draw up nutrients from deep down.
Just 'chop and drop' around the garden. Or steep the leaves in water in a covered container - as it will smell- for a few weeks. Then use the resulting liquid as liquid fertiliser - diluted till the mixture looks like weak tea.
They are great planted around fruit trees, about a metre from the trunk. They will slowly spread over the years so best planted away from the vege garden.
I have lots of other plants, herbs, ground covers and FRESH EGGS for sale.
Pick up on Newell road, Tamahere.
Please text 027-6566223.
