Age means nothing to either man or dog at championships

Dog-trialling duo Les Roughan and Prince are 100 not out. Mr Roughan, of Gore, and Prince have been competing at the South Island and New Zealand sheep dog trial championships at Alpha Burn Station near Wanaka this week.

 "We're a good old pair. There wouldn't be many 12-year-old dogs [here]. I think I would definitely be the oldest competitor here. It doesn't worry me, anyway," the spritely octogenarian said. While Prince was being retired from trialling after this week's competition, there were no such plans for Mr Roughan to relinquish the sport.
