Graham Blaikie, owner of the Mercat Grill, said: “Our charity doggy events give people the chance to catch up with fellow fido owners, whether they meet up with old friends or come and meet new people. 

“Everyone is welcome and it’s a great opportunity for the dogs and people to socialise!  And gives us a great opportunity to raise vital funds for the Edinburgh Dog & Cat Home.”
