Dog competition

Vote for Fluffy in the Nose of Tralee contest

Fluffy is a 10 year old bichon frize from Mullingar and she represents her county in the Pet Sitters Ireland Nose of Tralee Competition.

Pet Sitters Ireland is Ireland’s largest pet sitting and dog walking company and has run the Nose of Tralee competition for nine years.

The competition aims to find the cutest, funniest and most adorable pet in the country.

There are 32 finalists in the competition, one from each county, including Fluffy IN Westmeath.

Fluffy owner Paula Glennon said: “I decided to enter Fluffy into the contest when I saw an ad on Facebook.

“She was in competition last year and reached the semi-finals so I decided to give her another chance. I had to submit a picture of her and told them we represent Westmeath.

“We waited for the public vote to decide who was in the semi-finals, to my delight she made it to the semi-finals again.”

Paula encourages everyone to vote for Fluffy to be crowned Nose of Tralee 2022.

Voting is open August 3-22, when the winner will be chosen. Voting is free and everyone has one vote per day.

“I need everyone in Westmeath to vote every day so Fluffy can bring the crown back to his lovely county.”

When voting opens on August 3, you can vote for Fluffy on the Pet Sitters Website. (At the time of writing (Monday August 1), voting was not open.)
