Get along to the award-winning, dog-friendly Mercat Grill in East Lothian on Sunday 13th October with your best-four-legged friend for the ‘Doggy Coffee Morning’ from 10am-12pm. As well as the usual, mixing and mingling over coffee, the main highlight will be the professional photoshoot taking place and your pooch could be featured in the Mercat Grill’s inaugural canine calendar for 2020 or maybe even make the front cover! And all proceeds from the calendar sales will be donated to the Edinburgh Dog & Cat Home (edch).
Owner of the Mercat Grill in Whitecraig, near Musselburgh said: “We always have a really fun morning at our doggy coffee mornings – we love spoiling your pooches and we have some tasty doggy muffins being made especially for the event by Harrys Treats! It’s always great to see everyone having a super time and of course, raising vital funds to help those more unfortunate dogs (and cats). Our team at the Mercat love dogs and have supported the edch for over five years now – raising over £4,000 for the charity!
“To help raise even more money our team decided that a charity doggy calendar would be an excellent idea and one not to be sniffed at! So, on the day, our professional photographer will be snapping away, taking stunning photos of your pooches for our dogtastic calendar, which should be ready for distributing at our highly popular ‘Santa Paws’ event in December! In the meantime, we really hope you can make it with your family, friends and fidos on 13th October at 10am!”
The event is complimentary – with a free treat for your dog and coffees/teas/breakfast rolls can be purchased on the day. Donations to the edch are of course welcome. The price of the Mercat Grill’s doggy charity calendar is to be confirmed.
