A couple of years back, this pup was left in a car that was abandoned after a pursuit in Christchurch. Sadly, its owners never came back to claim her. She was placed at the pound and after the requisite time passed two of our officers adopted her. She was named 'Chase' and is thriving as a much loved family dog.
This drone footage from viewer Sam Thom, taken around sunrise today near Kohimarama Beach, is further proof that we have the privilege of living in the most breathtakingly beautiful place in the world. Thanks for sharing, Sam!

We got proof in Parliament today that putting up the price of cigarettes is all about money gathering, and not about health. If the government was honest, and truly cared about smokers’ health, they’d ban smoking.
They won’t. We asked Associate Minister of Health Peseta Sam Lotu-Iiga why the government wouldn’t ban smoking. He would not answer the question.
All they care about is money grabbing, and smokers are an easy target. Taxing smokes puts $1.62 billion a year in the public kitty and will rise to $1.857 billion in 2020. The price of a packet of cigarettes is made up of 80 per cent taxes.
This is just another PC attack on working people in particular.
They should have the freedom to enjoy something they get some pleasure from. After all, it’s legal.

a car pulls up in front of our driveway this morning, I'm shovelling almond hulls down the front & a lady gets out & asks for directions I pointed her in the right direction & prepared to get back to my shovelling & then I hear " oh you have cows how lovely, I'm a vegan" I'm thinking great this is all I need with 750kgs of almonds to shovel so I answer with " yes we run a dairy farm thank you they are lovely" thinking well that was quite polite of me "I think cows are lovely but they need to be free & I only drink almond milk & milking them is cruel" I'm thinking hmmm so I answer with "oh but our cows produce almond milk see here what I'm shovelling that's almond hulls we feed those to the cows & they give us almond milk" - surely I have gone to far with that one no one would believe that "My gosh" she squeals " how wonderful I'll have to tell my friends about this farm" Shit I'm hoping she has no idea how to find our place again. I throughly enjoyed shovelling the hulls this morning after that effort.
