Dog lover, dog owner, or dog supporter in general? Well, the arrival of Dublin’s first canine devoted festival might delight your soul. The Doggie Do is a planned day-long, family-friendly event for this September 12th that will see Merrion Square home to various adorable Instagram opportunities, and little tied-up plastic bags.
Sounds pretty quirky and cool, right? Well, while we’re all nodding our heads like a bobble dog in the back of a car window, the Doggie Do is still in the hypothetical stages. While planned to a tee with vet Q&A’s, interviews with groomers and trainers, an open-air screening, a picnic and market garden area with dog-friendly produce, and a ?Doggie and Soul? area for you to show off your pooch’s skills with scent trails and slides, the festival needs money. The organisers Le Cool Dublin, Happenings & Mr & Mrs Stevens and Supporting Dogs Trust Ireland are currently hosting a crowdfunding page on Fund it, and they’re just a grand short of the €12500 the need to make this furry dream the cute reality it deserves to be.
