Answering pet questions in Cork & Strictly Dancing in Bray: Pete the Vet’s busiest ever Saturday is coming up

I’m looking forward to this coming Saturday, but it’s going to be a busy one.

I’ll be starting off at Mahon Point Shopping Centre in Cork where I’ll be joining Suzi Walsh from Positive Dog Training as part of the Pedigree Pawsitive Living campaign. We’ll be meeting pet owners, helping to deal with veterinary and behavioural issues. Please come along to meet us if you live in the area – we’ll be there from 10am to 6pm.  If you can’t make it along, visit the Pedigree Ireland Facebook Page to find out more about the campaign, and to enter the competition.

As soon as we’re finished up in Cork, I’ll be rushing back to Bray for an event that has kept me busy for the the past month; the finals of the Strictly St Patricks dancing competition.

I am not a natural dancer – I may be able to memorise scientific facts easily, but if you ask me to remember a sequence of complicated dance moves, I’m struggling. But I liked the idea of helping a local primary school raise much needed funds, and the challenge of stepping out of my comfort zone. So I have been practising with my partner three times a week for the past six weeks, and the results will be frighteningly visible to the public on Saturday evening in the finals of the competition.

Every sum donated increases our chances of success. The winners on the night will be the couple who have gained the most of 33% for pledges online, plus, 33% from votes from panel judges plus 33% for public ratings for their dance performance on the night.

Due to the main venue on the night selling out, a live video link to The Koo at the Martello on the seafront in Bray has been set up. Tickets for this are only €10.00, with all proceeds going directly to the school. Tickets are available by emailing If you’re looking for an enjoyable, entertaining way to spend this coming Saturday evening with a few friends, why not come along to this?
