Dog by­laws dig­ging up dis­cus­sion

Kapi-Mana News - - FRONT PAGE -

With al­most a quar­ter of homes in Porirua hav­ing a dog as part of the fam­ily, we asked Neighbourly users if it was time the coun­cil started look­ing at mak­ing a dog ex­er­cise park. dogs that run away when gates are open so a full fenced area would be great for them.

DE­BRA ASH­TON, WHITBY

Yes it does. There are great ones in both Feather­ston and Grey­town. They are huge - guessti­mate, about an acre. Great for peace of mind and ‘‘an­i­mal con­trol’’ when out ex­er­cis­ing the dog, PCC. Dogs love it!

KEEP YOUR DOG ON A LEAD

There once was a lit­tle boy called Timmy.

He just loved the birds who lived around his house.

Timmy was sur­rounded by birds in this beau­ti­ful place, but se­cretly he wished he had some chick­ens of his very own to look af­ter. Some­times he dreamed they lived in his gar­den.

Christ­mas morn­ing came and he woke early. He couldn’t be­lieve his ears. It was chick­ens.

Ev­ery night, they went to bed in their spe­cial chicken house.

Timmy thought he’d be happy for­ever. But one aw­ful day, a big dog came and took them away.

BOND LOOK-ALIKE

The pass­ing of Sir Roger Moore came as a blast from the past for our fam­ily, a blast trig­gered by NZ broad­caster Brian Hud­son’s ac­ci­den­tal look-alike ca­reer try­ing not to be James Bond or The Saint. Dur­ing the 60s and 70s Brian was a BBC news reader in Lon­don, and was of­ten mis­taken for Moore.

It could have been said that James Bond was re­ally from Ti­tahi Bay and be­gan his ca­reer per­form­ing in Porirua Lit­tle The­atre’s now con­demned his­toric the­atre venue.
