Stockdog 2015

What a fabulous gathering of pups and their people in Inverleith Park on Sunday afternoon, 20th September!  We missed Stockdog last year as Charlie Papillon was still recovering from being neutered (ouch) but were delighted to be there this year.

Although Charlie and Robert didn’t win the “best dressed on six legs” competition in their Star Trek Original Series gear, we all had lots of fun.

We loved the high energy display from Flying Scots Flyball teams of West Lothian, the best smile, waggiest tail and diva competitions (and Charlie’s pal Dodger won that one!)  Best of all, it was a nice opportunity to meet lots and lots of dogs and their people.

And it didn’t even rain!

Stockdog is part of Stockfest, an annual week-long event promoting local businesses and celebrating the local community in and around Stockbridge in Edinburgh.  Stockbridge must be one of the most dog-friendly neighbourhoods anywhere in Scotland.

A huge thanks everyone involved in planning and organising the day – no mean feat – including fab photographer Emily of Canines of Edinburgh, Louise (and Prince!) from Bliss Boutique, JoJo (and TioPepe!) from Lilies & Dreams, Just Dogs Shop, Cameo Cinema, Jordan Moffat Photography, Those Were the Days Vintage, Scoff FoodsEdinburgh Dog & Cat Home, Patisserie Florentin and Gourmet Dog Treats.

There’s also a cute feature on the STV website with lovely images from Emily and Jordan.  Can you spot Charlie Papillon?  🙂
