GDPR seems to have got in the way of a pet photo opportunity for Fianna Fáil leader on the campaign trail.
Micheál Martin took to supermarkets, butcher shops and hairdressers while out canvassing in Drumcondra in Dublin on Thursday.
He was also hoping to get a photo with a dog getting their hair cut in Dowth Avenue Dog Groomers.
Unfortunately, the shop owner said he was barking up the wrong tree.
"Would you mind being filmed, the dog?", Mr Martin asked.
But when asked if the dog could be brought out for the cameras, the woman replied: "he's not my own dog".
Mr Martin earlier met people during a walkabout in the area.
One woman told him that "nurses are run off their feet - it's a dreadful situation".
She said she believes the people getting the big money are doing nothing.
