The Nose of Tralee, Robodog, A Travelling Cat & More: Pawtime Press


It has been a busy week here at Pet Sitters Ireland as we kick off the 3rd year of the Nose Of Tralee Pet Competition. It’s probably one of my favourite times of the year as we get ready to celebrate the love that people in Ireland have for their pets.

The Nose of Tralee is an online competition for pet lovers in the 32 counties of Ireland. You enter your pet and then compete with other pets in your county to win your Nose Title. The 32 Noses then go on to compete for the title of 2016 Nose Of Tralee.

You can enter the nose of Tralee using the Nose Of Tralee Competition Entry Link.

Britain’s first ‘robo-dog’ given bionic legs after rare disease ravages pooch’s paws

Robbie the 11 year old sheepdog has been given a new lease of life after suffering with Cushing’s disease, which left him in severe pain and unable to walk.

His bionic legs have allowed him a better quality of life meaning he can return to his normal walks. A revolutionary new treatment which I hope will be made available to other dogs with similar conditions.

Britain’s Got Talent: Trip Hazard.

I must admit I was hoping that I would be sat here Sunday morning writing that another dog won Britain’s got talent! I know we’ve had 2 dog acts win now, but it’s so hard to train dogs and the acts always amaze me.

The final performance was great and I loved that despite them being a last minute wild card they were able to put so much effort in their performance.

Big congratulations to Richard Jones the magician who won the 10 Yeah Anniversary show. I can’t wait to see what he does for the Queen at the Royal Variety!
