Posted on March 15, 2016 by Ella Wallace | 1 comment

Welcome to the Pupp treasure hunt! With Paddy's Day and Easter falling so close together, we thought we'd celebrate the two with a riddle-filled treasure hunt along Grand Canal.

It's a lovely walk whether you have a dog or not, so see if you can find the answers as you stroll from the first loch of Grand Canal all the way to Pupp. Come in with the answers to all 9 clues and enjoy a coffee on the house! Bring your pooch in with you for a free dog treat as well :)

What passes over the bridge?

 

5. A boat that never moves, a raft that never strays, on your right a place to wash your sorrows away.

What's the name of the bar?

 

6. Some contemporary art, just over the stream, an important message to all:

"Only the river runs _____________".

 

7. Cyclists rejoice, for just on the right, is the final stop to pick up a bike.

What is the stop number?

 

At the bridge, take a right by Ken Lawford Motors onto Clanbrassil St.

Sizing Guide

Dogs come in all shapes and sizes, and we want whatever you buy to be comfortable and well fitted for your pooch. Sizing can often be confusing, with manufacturers using different standards and metrics. At Pupp we list all our sizes in cm's so you can find the perfect fit.

How to measure your dog:

Collars

Neck: Measure right around the neck, allowing enough room to slide 2 fingers in for comfort

Harnesses

Chest: Measure right around the body around the deepest part of your dog's chest, usually just behind the dog's front legs.

Neck: Measure right around the neck, allowing enough room to slide 2 fingers in for comfort
