That's reminded me of a sad story. I took these two chums last year. They lived in a rural location here in NZ, and they were sadly both shot by a farmer when they were worrying sheep. The farmer was within his rights, but it is a sad story all the same.
The dogs belonged to Will and Rose Parsons who run Driftwood Eco Tours in Marlborough. Next to running, their favourite thing was going out on the Kayaks.
