My family and I live on the beach front in Hawkes Bay, New Zealand.We have two children, age 12 and 3 years. We love to swim and walk down the beach. We mountain bike in the local forests in the weekend and ride the cycle ways along the rivers. I had a poodle when I was growing up and a foxy in my 20's. Both dogs gone now from old age, so I am looking forward to having a new poodle join my family.
