Date: Saturday 1st November 2014
Time: 10am
Meeting Place: Botanic Gardens car park

Auckland Botanic Gardens

Route:

The Auckland Botanic Gardens is situated right next to the Southern Motorway, on Hill Road, Manurewa.

From Auckland travelling south on SH1

If travelling south on the Southern Motorway (SH1), exit the motorway at the Manurewa/Hill Road exit (the exit after the Manukau City exit). Turn left onto Hill Road and the main entrance to the Gardens is the first driveway on the left.

From South of the Gardens Travelling north on SH1

If travelling north on the Southern Motorway (towards Auckland on SH1), exit the motorway at the Takanini exit, then turn left onto Great South Road and drive towards Manurewa. Turn right at the lights into Alfriston Road (Z petrol station will be on your right hand side). Follow Alfriston Road then turn left at Claude Road and continue until it connects with Hill Road. Turn right onto Hill Road and drive past the traffic lights, the entrance to the Gardens is 100m further on, on the left.

Walk Time:

Approximately 1½ to 2 Hours

Walk details:

We will congregate in the far west end of the car park and will travel down the left hand side of the Gardens (motorway side) to the large off leash area near the Puhinui Stream. We will walk through a small section of the Puhinui Stream forest trail that leads into the bottom boundary of the Gardens. From here the walk will wind itself through multiple tracks of your choice up the right-hand side of the Gardens back to the car park.  Some sections of the walk through the forest trail are on-leash areas.

There is a large café within the main information centre for those who wish to relax, eat & talk after the walk. They do a great brunch at Miko café and you can sit outside with your dogs.

Please advise Terry Humphries (0212749145 or 5365847) or Karen Staniland (8109516) by 9am on the day or simply turn up on time on the day

Note: It is advisable not to leave any valuables in vehicles, and to wear appropriate clothing and footwear for poor weather conditions and off road walking. Remember to bring water and poo bags for your dogs.

Beagle walks go ahead on the day, rain or shine!

Home Found- Lil

Lil has found a home who will love her and help her over her loss.  She’s heading off to live with three other very friendly beagles of a similar age group and two lovely humans who will take great care of her during her dotage.

If you are interested in re-homing Lil, please call Terry Humphries on 021 274 9145, or email at adaptablesigns@xtra.co.nz

Lil is a bitch that has been spayed. She was purchased a few years ago on TradeMe from a breeder in Thames. Her owner Sid passed away last week at the age of 92. He had been single with no immediate family, and dogs have been his companions all his life. Until 3 months ago Sid had been at home with Lil, and she moved with Sid to a rest home in West Auckland until last week. Lil is nearly 12 years old. She has been seen by the vet (Massey Heights Veterinary Hospital256 Don Buck Road, Massey 832 4895) a couple of times in recent months for checkups. I believe all vaccinations are up to date.
 
Lil is a classic couch potato. I suspect she isn’t to very lively due to arthritis. She doesn’t move with great ease but is mobile nonetheless. She does occasionally urinate inside. I suspect she wasn’t getting enough time outside due to the owner’s illness. The vet prescribed Incurin tablets last month for incontinence. I believe this has helped. She was also tested for suspected Cushings Disease without any conclusive results. She is a little overweight probably due the owner constantly overfeeding her. Her weight has come down over recent weeks as the owner’s health declined and others took on the responsibility of caring for her in the rest home.
 
Lil is currently being looked after in kennels in West Auckland.  She has a very calm, placid temperament, very good around people and other animals. She cohabitated with a cat at the rest home and visiting dogs created no problems.
 
The executors of Sid’s estate are seeking a home for Lil. Any help in finding her a suitable home to live out the rest of her days would be greatly appreciated.  We hope to be able to place her with someone within the next week if at all possible.
 
If you can give this beautiful girl a loving home please get in touch with Terry Humphries on 021 274 9145, or email at adaptablesigns@xtra.co.nz

Beagle Hunt Day – Saturday 13th Sept 2014

BeagleHunt1BeagleHunt2

Important Kennel Cough Notice

Kennel Cough is currently doing the rounds and because beagles enjoy interacting closely with each other it is easy for them to transfer contagious diseases.

Please don’t bring a dog you think might be ill on the Beagle Walks. 

Kennel cough is a particularly infectious disease and is characterised by a wheezing cough akin to choking.  It can last from 7 to ten days in a vaccinated dog and two to six weeks in an unvaccinated dog.  A vet can help with the treatment of symptoms.   The contagious period is 6-14 weeks depending upon the treatment options and vaccination schedule in place.  Please get advice from your vet about when it is safe for your dog to interact with others again.

Walk Details

Location: Muriwai Beach Woodhill Forestry
Date: Saturday 13th June 2014
Time: 8.30am – NOTE THE EARLIER THAN NORMAL START TIME
Meeting Place: Car park on Coast Road, just after golf course. Toilet facilities available.
Route: Travel on the North Western motorway (SH16) heading towards Helensville. Pass through Kumeu.  As you come to the intersection of Waimuku and Muriwai Road, turn left to Muriwai Beach.  Travel 9km to your next turn off.  As you come into Muriwai Beach, look for Coast Road & Golf Course signs on your right.  Turn into this road.  Approximately 300m after you pass the golf course you will come to the carpark. 
Walk Details: The intention of this Beagle Hunt is to allow our beagles to track rabbit & hare in this remote area of the southern end of Woodhill Forestry. Your beagle is going to be off lead for most of this trek. A brief of what we’ll be doing will be explained prior to the start. Please try to be on time as we need to be heading out as early as possible to allow our beagles to pick up on fresh scents. Rabbits return to their burrows at day break. This walk is planned to take approximately 2 hours.
Walk Time: Approximately 2 hours
Additional Info: For those of you with time to socialise after the walk (you will need the rest!), there is a lovely dog friendly cafe 2 minutes from the carpark called Sand Dunz Beach Cafe.  

Please advise Terry Humphries (0212749145 or 5365847) or Karen Staniland (8109516) by 9am on the day or simply turn up on time on the day
