(Find information on how to submit your own pet's profile at the bottom of this profile.)

Name: Ceilidh was born in Cape Breton and is an Irish breed, so we wanted something Gaelic for his name. We both love music, so Ceilidh seemed very appropriate.

Nickname: Buddy, darling, and other endearments. His official Canadian Kennel Club name is Keigans WeHaveToKeepOurIrishNames, for any Canadian Heritage Minute fans out there.

Species/breed: Ceilidh is a soft-coated wheaten terrier

Age: 15 weeks

Fave food: Tiny pieces of marble cheese

Special tricks: Ceilidh is doing very well with Sit, Down, Bed and Come . . . when he chooses to listen!

Best quality: He’s very soft and snuggly when his puppy energy winds down. His favourite place to burn off energy is the park down the street.

Social media platform or handle, if available: On Instagram @ceilidhthewheaten
