Coffee and dog

The award-winning, dog-friendly Mercat Grill in East Lothian will be hosting a ‘Doggie Coffee Morning’ from 10am to 12pm on Sunday 13 October, in aid of Edinburgh Dog & Cat Home (edch).

As well as mixing and mingling over coffee, a professional photoshoot will be taking place with the chance to have your pooch featured in the Mercat Grill’s inaugural canine calendar for 2020 – or maybe make the front cover! All proceeds from the calendar sales will be donated to edch.

Owner of the Mercat Grill in Whitecraig, near Musselburgh, said, “We always have a really fun morning at our doggie coffee mornings – we love spoiling your pooches and we have some tasty doggie 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 doggie 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 13 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 doggie charity calendar is to be confirmed.
