From father to son. Rotorua tattoo artist Trinity Ropiha has given his boy a moko for his 15th birthday. Is there such a thing as too young for moko or is age irrelevant? Aroha Awarau reports tonight on Te Kāea at 5.30pm.
Epic closing ceremony last night with the Yugambeh mob coming to wrap our shoot and send us on our way. These people welcomed us to the country back in July and yesterday we completed the circle. It's because of them that our shoot was so peaceful and blessed with love and laughter. Even had a couple of sea eagles circling overhead to wish us luck. Thanks for having us! Mauri Ora!

Calling all builders, we need your help at the Village!
We are building a specialised Dog Training Course in the village to help enrich the lives of all the dogs here SPCA Auckland. The purpose of this area is to develop dogs' confidence and give them new experiences and help prepare them for the outside world.
The area will include different surfaces, levels and items from every day life that our dogs may have not come across before, such as signs, flags and gates. It will also include areas where they can practice their agility with features such as platforms, seesaws and tunnels. Overall, a big doggy playground!
To get our dogs and puppies on the training course ASAP we are starting the build next Thursday 2nd February. Work will continue every day for 3 weeks.
We are looking for volunteers who can come into the Village at least 3 days over that 3-week period to help our contractor build the training course!
Of course, if you can only commit one or two days during that period we will certainly still appreciate the help.
Volunteers would need to be fit and able to do physical labour, and ideally have building/construction experience!
This is a very exciting project that we are undertaking for the welfare of our dogs and puppies, and we hope to find some volunteers who want to be a part of it all. We know this would mean so much to our canine friends and the rest of the Village, so if you can make it let us know and everybody would be absolutely thrilled to have you on board!
If you can help, please fill in the application form on our website here: http://bitly.com/2ky7iJV. If you have any questions, please phone us on 09 256 7304 or email Wenna or Meital at VolunteerInfo@spca.org.nz
