The Great Second Chance Dog Rescue Swap Party

Kathleen Crisley from The Balanced Dog Ltd

The Balanced Dog's fundraiser this year is to benefit Second Chance Dog Rescue. The entire event is built on "Second Chances" - bring a secondhand item in one of these categories to swap: toys, women's accessories, DIY, craft supplies, DVDs, books, CDs, or homeware.

Each ticket includes a fixed menu pizza lunch (cash bar) and a chance at winning a raffle prize. Additional raffle tickets may be purchased for $1 each. You must be present to win. We are also taking donations of used items for dogs which will be donated directly to the rescue.

Ticket sales finish on 17th May to allow us to order the food; $25 per adult; $15 for child under 12. Ph 03 354 0298 or email workshops@balanceddog.co.nz

🦮 💩💩💩

Toni from Kaiapoi

We all are enjoying walking around our neighborhood at the moment, it’s so nice to greet and be greeted by all the friendly faces in Mansfield Park neighborhood.
BUT!!!!!!!........Please, Please, Please, those of you with dogs could you pick up after them!!!!!
Left on the grass is one thing, but it dotted up the footpaths because you’ve dragged your dog whilst they are still doing their business is disgusting!
Have a little respect for your neighbors.
PICK IT UP!!

Trading/swapping/gifting during lockdown.

Gina from Swannanoa - Ohoka

Hi everyone, I hope everyone is staying safe and well in their 'bubbles' during this uncertain time.
Our grandparents and for some of you, parents, endured uncertain and far more dangerous times during WW2. Rationing of everything, the' make do and mend' mantra that one was constantly reminded to do, 'dig for victory' where flower gardens and grass in parks and private gardens was given over to produce veggies. We are by no means at any of those stages where we dont have access to food, its just the getting it thats the problem for some. Which brings me to my point, one which i struggle with personally but its in the best interests of everyone and that is trading, swapping, gifting , whatever you like to call it, of excess fruit and veggies, toys, puzzles, etc etc. While its a lovely kind thought to share with others, it also brings about the possibility of sharing the very thing we're trying to eliminate, the virus. We have been told to socially distance ourselves from others , to sanitise, wash our hands, practice good cough and sneeze etiquette. If we fail to isolate to minimise the transference of this virus we will be in lockdown for longer. So please, please please, stay at home in safety with your families, dont go out to pick up items from others, dont put essential service personnel in danger by having an accident while you're out and about because youre desperate for ping-pong balls or veggie seedlings. Those things can wait. Order online. There are many more websites that are opening up to provide essential items. Phone those who dont have the internet and place an order for what they need for them perhaps. Go home, stay home and do your bit by helping everyone else stay safe too. Together we can all beat this!

Tell us the story behind your bear

Anna Williams Reporter from The Press

We're going on a bear hunt! People across the country are popping bears in their windows. But what's the story behind the fuzzy faces? Tell us about your bear - what's their name, where did you get it, how far have they travelled? Post a photo and tell us their story! You can also email maddison.northcott@stuff.co.nz if you've seen any bears in Christchurch you think we should cover. (Please mark any posts you don't want to see published NFP).
