If your dog spends most of their time outside, take proper precautions during the colder months. Make sure your dog has a warm, well-ventilated and cosy shelter with plenty of access to fresh, clean water.
Never leave your dog outside during inclement weather including sleet, ice, snow, wind, or extreme cold. If it’s too cold for you, it’s too cold for your dog.
Airlines Break Their Own Rules So Pets Can Escape Fires! More than 80,000 Fort McMurray’s residents in Canada were forced to flee their homes because of the massive wildfires in recent days. Thankfully, West Jet and Canadian North airlines have been making the evacuation process easier by letting people fly with their pets in the cabin. “It’s definitely unusual to carry pets in the cabin, but due to the unusual circumstances we were able to bend the rules to accommodate these animals during this crisis said Canadian North’s Kelly Lewis. Normally, animals traveling by plane should be kept in the cargo hold. However, in the current circumstances the residents are not allowed to return home for crates so it’s wonderful that they can take their beloved animals with them.
"We’re actually on our honeymoon. We chose New Zealand because both of us had been to other countries and this was the only country neither of us had been to. So far we’ve been to Auckland, Rotorua and now we’re going to Paihia. After the North Island we’ll be visiting Queenstown, Franz Josef and Christchurch. So far we’ve had a good time, just strolling around and exploring. He loved the geysers. It’s nice to relax - we are so tired after all our wedding functions, so this is a much-needed break!"

I'm Ginny, a member of the SPCA team in Auckland. I'm writing to you today after I read the Government's proposed action plan for dogs in New Zealand last week.
A couple of years ago I worked in an animal shelter in the UK. Every Thursday, an enforcement agency would come into the shelter and round up all the dogs they thought looked like a pit bull type and order them to be euthanised.
I know the heartbreak that breed-specific legislation causes, because I've seen it first hand.
Saying goodbye to innocent dogs and knowing we were powerless to help them is something that will stay with me for life.
The scary thing is, this is the future for our dogs if they look a certain way.
So I'm urging you all - act now while you still can: http://chn.ge/2cxbsk7
The UK introduced breed-specific legislation 25 years ago, and it has not led to a reduction in dog bites. The casualties of this law are the thousands of innocent dogs who were denied a chance to grow up, and have a family, and learn how wonderful the world can be for a dog.
All because of the way they looked.
Studies from the UK show us that breed-specific legislation does not work and we need to do everything possible to ensure New Zealand doesn't make the same mistake. Our focus should be on responsible dog ownership and public education.
The good news is there's still time to make a difference for the lives of dogs in New Zealand. Right now we're setting up meetings with important decision makers to get our voice heard.
But we can't do it without you. Please sign our petition and share it with everyone you can.
Sometimes timing is everything. As a fireball meteor flashed across the sky on Tuesday night, Jono Malta was out capturing a night sky panorama on his Canon EOS 6D on Waikanae Beach. He was lucky enough to capture this amazing shot of such a rare phenomenon!

“My mother, a palagi, accepts the gift of the malu. A tatau to match her husband. A magnificent pair. A woman who married Samoa 25 years ago, a country that embraced her with open arms. A land that chose her bones to bear it’s children. Some will argue that a palagi is not fit to wear it, but who are they to question her heart for Samoa, her heart for her husband, her heart for her children? The right to wear a malu is not indicative of blood or skin tone, it is a matter of spirit, and the spirit of Samoa dwells within her, always.” - Timena Apa (Tessa's daughter)
