You're so little - about 10 weeks old we think - and in your short life you've had a tough time. You came in with a horrific injury that couldn't be repaired. And Kratos, you just happened to be born a breed that some people may call "menacing".
So Kratos, we wanted to publicly give you our promise.
We promise you that we'll do everything we can to make you better and find you the loving home you deserve.
We promise not to judge you based on the way you look (even though you're really cute!).
We promise to fight for you, and all the other dogs that the Government feel are not worthy to live just because of the shape of their head, or the color of their nose, or the way they look when they stand.
We promise to keep shouting that dogs should be judged on behaviour, not breed.
Kratos, we'll judge you based on your deep love and trust in people, and how you snuggle into our shoulder when we pick you up, and how in spite of everything you have been through you still wag your tiny tail when we greet you.
Kratos, we gave you your name because it means 'strength' in Greek. And it suits you! Because you'll need lots of strength to get through the next few weeks. And we'll need strength to fight for your right to live.
The team at SPCA

"We've got mums saying they opened up the The Warehouse catalogue and they cried." - That's the beautiful response the Kiwi company is receiving after it's latest models included their first ever in a wheelchair.
Sweet. We spent $26 million dollars to decide to keep our old flag. Pretty sure the 305,000 NZ kids living in poverty will appreciate that.
UPDATE: There are some people who are being petty and saying things like 26m divided by 300,000 kids isn't going to end poverty. Obviously! It's not about that, it's about the spending of a lot of money on something which distracts us from more important issues. Are new flags cool? Yes. Should we have one? Probably. Should we spend $26 million deciding to decide? I don't feel comfortable with that.
Saying "that's the price for living in a democracy" is not a fantastic argument. I don't see referendums on more important issues like the TPPA, taxation, asset sales, or whether we should be cloning Richie McCaw (I vote "yes"). People are talking about being able to vote on a flag design as if it's some sort of huge modern day social victory. We all lost! We lost our money and our minds over a flag colouring competition. We may as well have been voting on whether or not to bring out a Top Town DVD box set. Who cares?? It's not important right now!
Two years ago, Christchurch's Rape Crisis call centre was closed down because there was no more money in the $10 million we allocate to sexual violence services. They needed $30,000 to stay open. Luckily, after a lot of panic, the service was taken on by Aviva and still survives. But there are many other organisations and community initiatives who are struggling and will close down or disappear because there isn't enough money to allocate to schools, education, or social groups. So yes, $26 million is a "drop in the bucket" in the larger scheme of things, but saying it's insignificant is a bit of a f**k you to people who have nothing. Having come from an underprivileged community I still believe that money could have made a difference in other ways.
I do hope that one day we can have a new flag - personally, I am happy to keep the old one over the new designs which just looked like logos. And for those who think I'm pointing the finger at National, I'm not. I'd say the same thing if it were Labour or the Flagz R Cool Party. Now that's purely my opinion, it doesn't mean we can't all get along and be friends.
And now I realise I've written a really long thing to explain how much I don't care about flag debates, which makes it look as if I really care about flag debates.
