A gorgeous young Kilkenny dog is crossing his paws in anticipation of being crowned the next Nose of Tralee.
Frankie is a cross between a sheepdog and a Burmese Mountain Dog and is the lastest member of the Walsh family in Jenkinstown.
Last March Corrina Walsh decided to give eight-week-old Frankie a home for life.
“My heart was broken after losing my 13-year-old dog Charlie. My family, other dog and four cats missed him so much life was very tough. I wanted another rescue animal as all my others are but, could not find ‘the one’. I wanted a young dog to make sure he grew up and was ok with my cats. Then I saw Frankie and he melted my heart. The whole house was turned upside down and everyone loved Frankie! He has helped us like you would not believe - my little hero - and Charlie would have loved him,” she said. Corrina is urging the people of Kilkenny to get behind Frankie and vote for him.
“Frankie should be the 2015 nose of Tralee simply because he is the cutest boy. He loves everyone especially kids and apples, blueberries, strawberries and and occasional bit of banana and orange.
“Frankie loves to play and loves water, he is a very special boy and is too cute not to be ‘ The Nose of Tralee’
This is the second year of the Nose of Tralee, where animal lovers in the 32 counties can enter their pets to become the ‘Nose’ for the their county and go on to win the title of 2015 Nose of Tralee.
The competition gives pet lovers a chance to show off their pets and their love for them.It’s also very much a community event where people can get behind the pet that they would like to represent their county.
