This week’s pet: Four-month-old Fleet.
Fleet’s real neat
‘‘She learns so quickly
and loves to learn,’’ my
friend Ani said. ‘‘I’ve
taught her ‘sit’, ‘down’,
She’s starting to learn
‘weave through the
legs’ and she has a
grin from ear to ear
while we’re practising.
She’s such a cool pup!’’
I was so chuffed to
hear that I wanted to
jump up and lick Ani’s
face all over but I
know that’s bad
manners so instead I
sat by her feet and
looked up lovingly into
I’m Fleet, a four-
month-old cattle dog x
maybe German shep-
herd, and I would be a
lovely family pet. I’ve
been here since Xmas
and now’s my special
chance to ask: Could
my new home be with
you? You won’t regret
it, I promise.

A hidden valley in a geothermal
area near Kaikohe is being opened

Debbie says the valley has been
virtually undisturbed by human
activity for more than 100 years.
‘‘It’s got no conservation or
Queen Elizabeth II Trust protec-
tion. Basically, it’s just been pres-
erved by our family.’’
The Taylor family is keen to
allow the public to visit the valley
under controlled conditions.
‘‘It’s very unique and fragile.
That’s why we’re limiting the
number of people we take through
to eight and tours to one to two a
Four British tourists were
impressed by their visit to the val-
overwhelmed by what they saw.’’
The Taylors are optimistic that
Paihia-based tour operators will
also be impressed and plan to
invite them to an open day at the
valley to put the guided walks on
the tourist map.
‘‘We’ve done the brochures and
website,’’ Debbie says.
They’re already thinking about
new tourism products, including
outdoor concerts and wine and
dine evenings in the mercury
