We are delighted to welcome you to our specially designated page for our furry friends who we can’t forget in these times, because in many ways they are keeping us active and sane. While many doggies think it’s Christmas with the amounts of walks they are being taken on, the pussycats seem to think everyone has been fired from their jobs and they want the house back to themselves again. We are running a competition each week to hear about your pets.

Edel Swords is a huge dog lover and supporter of many dog charities and has been judging our Dublin City Council Dog Shows for many years, will be introducing the competition, selecting the winners and helping us with tips for our pets each week.
