Dexter Nose Of Tralee 2016 Winner
How did Dexter come into your life? What’s his story?

My mam and nanny got Dexter for me when he was 6 months old. I always wanted a husky and to call him Dexter so they finally gave in. He was a very scared little puppy when we got him but with a little patience and a lot of love he has grown into a fabulous boy.

What makes Dexter the most pawtastic pet EVER!

Everyone thinks their pet is the greatest and none of them are wrong, but I suppose for us, what makes Dexter great is his personality. He’s has such a funny character and can bring a smile to anyone’s face.

Why did you decide to enter the Nose of Tralee?

We decided to enter Dexter into the Nose of Tralee as we thought he would make a fantastic ambassador for his county and especially his breed.

How did you prepare for the contest and get votes?

We set up a Facebook page for Dexter and we informed all our friends and family. The local paper also contacted us. We let everyone know who was in the husky groups which we were part off.

What advice would you give to the next Nose of your county?

Be prepared and don’t take it too seriously. It’s a bit of fun and most importantly it’s about having fun and showing off your pet to the rest of the country

How is Dexter handling his new found fame?

Dexter is taking it all in and loving life. We were on holidays in France with Dexter, my boyfriend and his parents when we found out he won needless to say we celebrated well and Dexter definitely took it all in.
