We show dogs and also breed some. Over the years we have shown various breeds, and then retired them, so from the oldest to the youngest, we have two Irish Setters, two English cockers Spaniels, and three Golden Retrievers. We also have two additional English Cocker Spaniels who are visiting to be groomed and trimmed, making up the nine. We have council permission for seven dogs normally.I like Golden Retrievers, they're always happy aren't they. My friends who live outside of Ballarat were thinking about having boarding kennels at one stage but they got all sorts of grief from their neighbours about their idea which is fair enough - they're only on two acres and it's on the verge of a small hamlet so not as well suited to it as when your neighbours are a few hundred metres away. I gather that your nearest neighbours are a fair distance away?
I notice Nicola Roxon has furthered the cause of Labor dis-unity yet again overnight by referring to Kevin as a 'bastard'. Will they ever learn?
Nicola used to be my local member when I lived on that side of town - she's not an MP any more so she can say what she likes. Maybe she felt it needed to be said. Personally I think people should just forget about Kevin now he's a backbencher - he'll probably leave at some stage before the next election anyway. He's worth millions (or at least Therese Rein is) so why should he bother with playing in the sand-pit any more?
