We will be walking from Galway City to Bubbles and Barks (about 7.5kms) and we would like to invite you and your dogs to join us. I have set a goal to raise €1000, don’t aim high, and you won’t get close!
This is a challenge guys so I will be doing the walk in fancy dress! You are all invited to join in the theme but the main goal is to raise money.
I have set up an official donation page through Today FM which I will ask you to donate to and I would ask that you tell your friends to donate there as well. If we all raised even €20 each we would be at the goal in no time.
I have provisionally booked Sunday 24th from 2pm as our walk day. Leaving from The Swamp. We will have tea and coffee waiting for us at Bubbles and Barks and we can let all the dogs have a little social at the beach afterward. Please join the Facebook Event linked below as the dates and times may change.
Thanks for reading and I hope you can join us on the day and help us to raise as much money as possible.

Thanks everyone for coming to Gráinnes PAWty!
We had a ball. It was so great to see all the pups together again and meeting all the new faces was PAWsome too.
We had a lovely day hanging out and talking dog. Not to mention the amazingly talented photographer Maisie who was busy taking portraits for the guests.
I have just uploaded an album of snapshots taken by Maisie HERE which you are free to download or share. Maisie will be emailing all the portrait clients individually and directly.
Thank you all for coming! See you next year!

We want your dog to be happy and healthy so in future we will only include anal gland expression if requested and deemed necessary. A service charge of €10 will apply.
After having discussed this topic with our local veterinary offices we think this is the best policy going forward. We would recommend only requesting that the glands be checked if your dog has been dragging its bottom or if it’s been licking the area. This would be a sign of a bit of difficulty in releasing the fluids from the glands. Expressing glands unnecessarily can cause weakness of the muscles meaning continued intervention may be required. It can also lead to inflammation and infection.
We will be happy to check and express anal glands on request and if the right circumstances apply for the fee of €10. Please request the add on service at check in.
I will be on holiday from the 4th February to the 3rd March 2017.
Jemma my very talented assisant will be at the shop, tail wagging, 3 days per week while I am away. She will yappilly bathe your dog in luxury, providing “Mini Pampers”, our new very pupulour “Wash and Fluffs”, and maintenance grooms while I am gone. ——— Read more about Jemma.
That’s just under 6 weeks to get your dog booked in with me. Those non shed breeds groomed before Christmas wiil be due before I go and if we haven’t seen you since November then your pooch may be overdue their pampering.
As a little treat for coming we will even bump up the luxury with a complimentary Blueberry Facial for every furtastic client, that’s for January AND Febuary!
All full pampers in January will be entered into a draw to win a FREE “Wash and Fluff” with Jemma, in the month February!
