1.15 Gisborne Drought Risk

The weather conditions are dry, dry and getting dire in the Gisborne District. It has recorded the driest January in 112 years - with just 4mm measured at the airport's rain gauge. Federated Farmers is looking to seek a drought declaration, unless there's some meaningful rain. Gisborne District Council has enforced a level two water restriction today, meaning a ban on the use of sprinklers. Charlie Reynolds is the provincial president of Federated Farmers Gisborne/Wairoa.

1:25 Dog Owner Lookalikes

Do dogs look like their owners? This seems to be a commonly-held belief. We had a quick look online for famous people and their dogs and found Will Smith with a bull-dog also with a German Shepherd, Lady Gaga with a French bull-dog, Elizabeth Taylor with a white fluffy dog, Liam Gallagher with a British bull-dog, Leonardo Di Caprio with a French bull-dog, Jackie Chan has Golden Retrievers, the Obama's have their spaniels, and of course there was Paris Hilton and her handbag Chihuahua.

Susie Brown decided to put the theory of dogs looking like their owners to the test, she is holding an exhibition in Wellington, and wants those attending to vote on whether the owners look like their dogs.
