Just when we were wondering if Christmas in Dublin could get any better, a carol service especially for dogs is being held in the city today.
Yes, that's right. A carol service for dogs.
Pups of all sizes will be getting into the festive spirit this afternoon at Christ Church Cathedral where the annual Peata Therapy Dog Carol Service will be held.
The Dean of Christ Church Cathedral, Dermot Dunne, said that the dogs are usually well behaved at the event, according to breakingnews.ie.
He said: "There is one carol that they bark to and that is Away in a Manger."
He added: "Other than that, it is fairly OK, they don't make any noise and they don't fight with each other either."
The paw-pular annual event is held to celebrate and mark the work of Peata, a voluntary organisation that brings therapy dogs into care homes.
During the service, which is led by the Dean and the Girl Choristers, a collection will be taken and divided between Peata and the Peter McVerry Trust.
Tea and festive mince pies will be available after the carol service, which kicks off at 1:15pm today.
