Why Did You Decide To Enter The Nose Of Tralee? I had a rough start to 2021. The vet diagnosed me with a portosystemic shunt in February and I had to have life saving surgery. Entering the Nose of Tralee was a really happy and pawsitive experience for me in a tough year.

How Did You Prepare For The Contest And Get Votes? My person got in touch with the Nationalist Newspaper and a couple of radio stations in Tipperary. They were all really happy to feature my story. Hopefully it might help other pups that face a portosystemic shunt to know that there is hope.
