I posted this 116 days ago about the safety of our pet rabbit. Pancake is now dead, killed by this very same dog, according to workers who were on a roof close by. We are devastated by the loss of our beloved 5 year old Pancake. The workers also said that a neighbour came to see the scene, but did not inform us of anything (we could make have tried to resuscitate her. I don't know if the person who came was the owner of the dog who was let to wonder freely and is a true danger to small pets.
I want the owner to hear this: Having a dog comes with responsibility and respect for others. Don't have one if you are not capable of doing this.
We have a 4 years old Bichon Shih Tzu cross breed male dog in our care. Very playful, kids friendly and lovely companion.
We are planing an overseas travel. Duration will be from first week of March 2022 for about 3 (minimum) to 6 (maximum) months.
Are you willing to look after our four legged friend in our absence?
We are happy to pay a fee if required. He has insurance cover for medical expenses. We are also happy to bear any extra costs and cost of his food. We can discuss more details.
I am sure you will definitely enjoy his company as we do.
Happy to answer any messages or calls to my mobile number 021022 64174 or 044787465. We are based in Paparangi.
This week we feature a picture from Louise Thomas, who has been to Stewart Island.
"You shall not pass!" she said defiantly standing her ground in the middle of the track. "You can however, sidle past while I stand on this stump." How can something so small be so completely unafraid of the world? South Island robin/kakaruwai (Petroica australis), Ulva Island, 7 January. I guess that makes it P. a. rakiura.
