Amelia Dunbar lives at High Peak Station in Canterbury with her beekeeper husband, daughter, dog and deer, and runs winter ski hosting business The Neon Pompom.

She also paints (as Amelia Guild). Emma Newborn is a fourth generation actor, custodian of Old Government House in Auckland (home to the cat Governor Grey), and a marriage celebrant.

Together they created the hit show The Bitches' Box, which they have toured nationally and internationally since 2012.

They take up the roles of dogs again in their new show, Sons of a Bitch, which they will tour by horse truck to 19 woolsheds throughout the South Island between 30 March and 1 May, alongside singer-songwriter Mel Parsons.

The three women talk to Kim Hill about the show.
