If you're in any way emotionally fragile or feeling a bit weepy, we really recommend you flick over to something a little less emotional.

We can't stress this enough and we're basically indemnifying ourselves right now if you burst into tears.

Here's a few stats, really quickly.

Approximately 29 dogs are sent to pounds EVERY DAY in Ireland. That's strays, unwanted dogs and ones that are found wandering the streets and roads.

If you're considering a dog for your family, please consider using a pound before buying a pup or any of the adoption services in Ireland.

No animal - dog, cat, whatever - deserves to be abandoned.
