Doggy biscuit for tea

Marlborough Lines clerical assistant Rachel Giddy last week took dog biscuits to work to sell to her colleagues during their tea break.

But rather than a crude practical joke, Rachel, 20, was in fact raising money for the Royal New Zealand Foundation for the Blind, baking her dog-shaped treats with the help of one of the charity's biscuit cutters.

The money raised by participants throughout the country will go predominantly towards retraining guide dogs in Christchurch due to the dramatic changes in their usual routes and routines after the February 22 earthquake.

Rachel made five batches of the biscuits, raising nearly $100.

"I usually give money for the guide dogs but there was a newsletter on the table at work about this and I thought it would be a nice thing to do," said Rachel. "And the puppies are so cute."
