Dog owners looking for a pet-friendly destination should head out to East Lothian where the Mercat Grill in Whitecraig is celebrating its dog-friendly vibe. It has a host of dog-themed charity events in the diary. Raising funds for the Edinburgh Dog & Cat Home there’s a Facebook competition to find the prettiest pooch (closes 25 April) and a doggy quiz (23 April).
There’s also a doggy dinner on 24 April when your pooch will eat for free, from a fine selection of organic dishes available off the Mercat Grill’s doggy menu. Then on 25 April it’s a full day of fun, kicking off with a Coffee Morning followed by the fun – agility competition, beauty pageant, etc. If dogs are not your thing, then there’s a race night in aid of Cash for Kids on 18 April.
