The weekend is nearly here, but just to make your day that little bit better (thank us later), we have some exciting PUPPY-RELATED news.

If you’re a fan of all things cuddly, cute and generally squeal-inducing, you better make a big space in your diary for March 11, 12 and 13.

Dublin is set to become a cat and dog playground for that weekend only, as Whiskas and Pedigree team up for Pawsitivity In The City, a three-day event promoting #PawsitiveLiving for pets and their owners.

Whether you’re a pet owner, looking to give a pet in need a new home, or simply just want to give and receive some oh-so fluffy puppy love, then head along to Merrion Square to check out the action.

Activities lined up so far include a doggy disco, professional pet grooming and dog training services, plus advice from expert vets including Ireland AM star Pete Wedderburn.

The ISPCA will also be there to help some dogs in need to find their new forever home through their Rehoming Programme.

Now, to tide you over until March 11, here’s the most adorable puppy/kitten GIF we’ve ever seen:
