Hi everyone,
We're looking for a new addition for our small family, and would love to have a puppy as we have two cats.
We have been looking around and meeting a few pups recently, but would like to find one suitable for our family as it will be a long term commitment (not too boisterous or loud), our little girl is a very gentle person, sensitive to certain louder dogs and totally fine with some (usually quieter types)
We have been to huha. Will call spca waikanae tomorrow.
If anyone knows of someone with a litter to adopt or purchase, please let us know.
Also, are greyhounds good with cats? Was considering adopting greyhounds too.
Thank you all.
Have a lovely weekend!

Managed isolation breaches sound worse than they are - expert

A high-profile expert says letting people leave managed isolation early sounds worse than it is.

Two of New Zealand's three active cases were granted an exemption to visit a dying relative before being tested for COVID-19.

Managed isolation breaches sound worse than they are - expert

A high-profile expert says letting people leave managed isolation early sounds worse than it is.

Two of New Zealand's three active cases were granted an exemption to visit a dying relative before being tested for COVID-19.

Microbiologist Siouxsie Wiles says ramped-up testing of people in managed isolation is a great move because it will pick up cases in asymptomatic people. Up to 45 percent of people infected with the SARS-CoV-2 virus - which causes the disease - don't show symptoms, the latest research suggests.

It has been deleted from the thread and think it may be helpful for a friend who doesnt want to take prescription meds. Also deleted was my post re access to health services. This is a legitimate public health concern and I'd really like to talk to the person who decided it should be deleted. If you are deleting messages that are in the public interest, perhaps you have a conflict of interest?
