Dog and sheep buildings, Tirau
Tirau was Oxford before I went to Singapore. It has reinvented itself as a town of antique and collectible shop.
On our way between Taupo and Rotorua, I was attracted by these two corrugated iron buildings. The sheep is the souvenirs shop and the sheep dog is the tourist information centre. The sheep industry is very important to New Zealand. The sheep farmer needs his dog to round up his sheep.
It was raining heavily when we were there with Sister Rose.
