    That could not happen....under money laundering laws you have to have proof were the money goes or comes from you cannot gift a house without paying massive taxes...only way is if someone dies and leaves a property to family...most family homes would be in a trust which protects you from losing it .

    Hound Fan got a reaction from Emotive in $2000 Import Fee   
    My main point here and as a example which is fact.....one of my owners bred a litter payed to get it reared .broken in at a cost of 30k to 2yrs of age...not one has won a race and 2 have been rehomed through gap with the rest being put on gap list now......before they had imported 3 dogs at a cost off 15k which of none have gone to gap ...so now they have just imported another one at a cost of 6k so they can still enjoy racing dogs.....they have tryed to buy a nz dog but the quality offered is not there all they are getting is cast offs for 6k.....i believe it should be there right to a equal playing field and have the choice....if you want to put a fee on imports do it when they go to gap and then we know were the money has gone........and the bitch breed from won 3 group races over the middle distance...

    Just read on another site....greg kerr is going to put a $2000 charge on imported dogs....have to ask were are we going to get race dogs up north greg ? You spoke to me last week asking why we are struggling for noms at waikato ? i explained 2 points one there selection policy 2 the lack of breeding in the north......now you are within 3mnths going to charge $2000 to bring dogs in....it takes 2yrs to breed and race again.....tell you that will make me call it quits...it will be the nail in the coffin....sometimes wonder wether grnz under the latest managment is trying to save the sport or kill it?

    Hound Fan reacted to Jape in Auckland cup   
    On a positive note, I thought the triumvirate of Andy/Mark and Philippa ( I hope Philippa does not mind being included in a triumVIRate) did a splendid job on Dogzone this week and gave us all plenty of "ammunition" to like our own selections. 
    I would love to see Ringside win the Cup for Ray Adcock but he must lead and that may not be possible in this quality field. Pinny Mack has been a favourite of mine for some time and I think that is where my dollars will go on Sunday.
    Sir Duggie is out-and-out the best sprinter in NZ and the Railway is his presuming he makes his usual speedy beginning. If not, who knows. 
    The beauty of racing is that there is no such thing as a certainty.
    I hope I have not jinxed Winx with that remark!!!
     
    PS I was saddened to hear that Dangle The Carat had succumbed to cancer. She was my favourite greyhound throughout her outstanding career. The combination of sheer brilliance and staying strength was remarkable.

    I have travelled dogs between islands many times.....have found interislander staff very accommodating....on hot days i ask to be on the open deck and on cold and wet days i  ask to be under cover...never have i been refused.....human era is a bad thing and we are ultimately responsible for our dogs welfare.....ive always when travelling have a motto.......rather have a cold dog than a dead dog......

    Hound Fan reacted to Emotive in Whanganui   
    There are very simple solutions, listen carefully, repeat the instruction back. Use the radio when relaying instructions to the driver, allow the trainer time to correct the relayed message if necessary. Don't start up the lure until everyone is on the same page. If staff are not capable of following any part of that process, then they should consider early retirement. Waving your arm at passing seagulls who are not trialing dogs at the track is not appropriate behaviour. This is a welfare issue. How can you not care what happens to the dogs?

    Agree the track water problem is unbelievable..2 of my 4 dogs did pads...why put water on the track and then put the pads around 5 times after on the tractor which drys out the track....unfortunate we have robert roberts running things and no management...track staff dont want to be told what to do by a robot in the office...i was told when i scratched 13 dogs 3yrs ago by the riu that someone has to be at the track the day before racing.....this has not happened ...bow your heads again auckland your a disgrace..

    Time wasters. People have nothing better to do with their time. If you didn't hear it with your own ears, see it with your own eyes then don't repeat it with your big mouth. Keep on keeping on buddy.
