Sick of wearing pads or having to hunt for toilets all the time? There are ways to improve this without surgery if you start early enough. If you have certain types of leakage, a short operation may be suitable if other methods have failed. If you also have prolapse, the surgery is more major but not everyone has to have surgery. Riverside Women's Healthcare is a full-time private gynaecology clinic in Whangarei, based in the Town Basin, run by women for women. Dr Rachel Moss can asses your type of problem and give you your options. If you do wish surgery she can arrange the preliminary tests required and then perform the surgery at Kensington Hospital. Ring 09-438 2188 for an appointment, or to talk to Maureen, the practice nurse, if you want more information about what is available and the costs involved. A GP referral is preferred but not essential Warmer autumn Warmer than normal conditions are likely to continue into autumn, the NIWA National Cli- mate Centre says. The equatorial Pacific remains in a strong La Nina state, expected to persist into the start of autumn. February to April temperatures are likely to be above average in all regions and rainfall is expected to be normal or above normal in all North Island regions. Mean sea level pressures are likely to be below normal to the north of New Zealand, with weaker westerlies across the country. Trop- ical cyclone activity is likely to be near or above normal through to May. Top dog show returns after long absence Dog show: Hibiscus Coast Kennel Association president Davida Brown will be at Saturday's show, but not her and Elsie Rennie's national grand champion Shandau Rise 'N Shine. Top national bichon, toy and all breeds dog Shine represented New Zealand at the Eukanuba World Challenge in Long Beach, California. While there he also competed in four All Breeds Shows, taking Winners Dog and Best of Winners titles in his breed. Photo: LEO ROLFE www.supashots.com Orewa goes to the dogs this Saturday -- about 545 of them, in fact. They're here for two champion- ship shows on the day, hosted by the Hibiscus Coast Kennel Association at Victor Eaves Reserve. More than 350 people from throughout the North Island will be bringing dogs of all breeds and sizes to the event, open for free public viewing from 8.30am. The All Breeds Championship Show returns after many years' absence. Last held at Redvale, the event has been at Ardmore for the past few years. People have been asking when the show will return, and with the Vic- tor Eaves facilities available more will probably be held here, assistant show manager David Hardwick says. Seven show rings will be open for viewing. These include dogs in the toy category, such as pugs, pomeranians, pekingese and papil- lons. Others feature gundogs -- appro- priate with the duck shooting season in May, terriers, hounds, working dogs, non-sporting, and utility dogs like huskies and samoyeds. Seven of the judges are from over- seas, such as Brazil and Canada. One show will be judged in the morning and the other in the after- noon. Refreshments available. The reserve is on West Hoe Rd off Grand Drive, Orewa.
