Hilarious footage spots dog strutting down Dublin street with new 'mask' muzzle


Here is the moment that a dog was spotted strutting down a Dublin street sporting a new kind and fitting type of muzzle during a global pandemic.

The health-conscious and cautious canine was caught on camera wiggling its way down Maryland leading its owner on a brisk but safe walk yesterday.

Clondalkin man Darragh Ward thought he was hallucinating and had to do a double-take at the pup in the passenger seat while he and a work colleague passed by.  

Darragh told Dublin Live: “We had to do a u-turn to make sure we weren’t imaging it.

He added: “Luckily, we have been kept busy throughout the pandemic.

“The company I work for ABC Services – a leading supplier of bar and catering food services in Ireland – do a lot of work for the HSE.

“But I can’t wait to be able to go out for a nice meal again and comfortably enjoy a few drinks.”
