Doireann Garrihy has said that her Instagram famous dog Bertie is the love of her life since she got him last year.

The RTÉ 2FM star took some time out from filming series three of The Doireann Project to chat to vet Pete Wedderburn on Instagram Live about her beloved pup Bertie.

Doireann shared that Bertie, who is a cocker cavalier cross, has been her “sanity” during lockdown.

She said: “He’s the love our lives. He’s been our sanity in lockdown, start to finish, and we just love him to bits.”

Doireann said that she has been recovering from a dislocated knee, but Bertie hasn’t missed out on walks as a result. She revealed that her partner Paddy takes Bertie on early morning and evening walks every day in the Phoenix Park.

Pete the Vet also got a catch to meet the pup in question as Doireann held Bertie up to the camera so viewers of the Q&A could admire him.

Fans of Doireann will already recognise Bertie, who also has his own Instagram account, @bertietheblogger.

Bertie is a bit of an Instagram celebrity in his own right with his ever-popular Instagram account reaching over 13,000 followers.

In a recent post, Bertie celebrated his first birthday with an adorable post, captioned: “I’m 1 today woof. I couldn’t have a party because of Covid 19 and the importance of canine distancing but I did have some exploring in the park.

“I’ll have a party when I’m allowed and you’re all invited (if you bring treats) woof woof.”
