My name is Lisa Hamilton and I live in Arklow. My dog Max is Wicklow’s representative for this years Nose of Tralee competition having been chosen from 1200 pets nationwide.

Max is my gorgeous three year old chocolate Labrador.  I received him as my fourteenth birthday present and he’s my best friend who rarely leaves my side.

He’s quite a lovable character who always seems to make everyone drop to their knees to give him a cuddle; which he never complains about; He loves to snuggle on top of you while you watch the TV and always perks up when we turn on  Mrs Brown’s Boys.

He has a shoe fetish and will always greet visitors with a special paw-picked offering.

He is always looking for a treat but his all time favourite is his 3pm Rich Tea biscuit which he cannot go without.

The winner of the competition is chosen from a daily public vote which is open until the 22nd of August.

Voting can be done using a link available on Max’s Facebook page which is

Max: Wicklow Nose for a Reason

Or for those that are not on Facebook they can vote via the following website which is

The vote requires your email which will not be used for marketing or any other purpose. Once you vote initially you will receive a confirmation link by email to confirm and after that it’s click and vote each day.

I set up his Facebook page at the beginning of the competition so that people could get to know him and  to encourage support from his local community.

 I’m trying to drum up as many votes for him as possible and I would really appreciate if you would be able to help me by doing a little article about Max in this weeks Wicklow People.

Team Max would really love for Arklow and County Wicklow  to finally have its first All Ireland title. I have enclosed below some photos for you to have a look at.
