Stood along with Regional and City Council staff and business folk watching the Hutt River hurtle down to the sea.

Meet Olive, a three year-old mixed female.
"I am an awesome girl who just needs an awesome family! I can be a bit nervous of new situations, so I am looking for a quiet and predictable home with teenagers or adults that can build my confidence and play with me. I would love to spend my days exploring the garden, going on adventures, and after a day of playing with my doggy friends, have a comfy bed to rest up in with lots of cuddles and treats. I am very strong so an experienced owner would suit me best. I would love to go to training classes and work on loose lead walking. If this sounds like you then please contact the canine team."

"Here is a photo of Nell from Waikanae - playing in the sea here. She is seven. Three quarters miniature poodle and one quarter springer spaniel. She has a wonderful nature - rarely barks, never fusses and adores all humans."
