He may be a global ambassadog and Scotland’s best friend, but that didn’t stop one-year-old golden retriever George from taking the time to explore his home city of Glasgow, as well as some dog-friendly sites in and around Loch Lomond. George wants everyone to know that both places are just paw-some for a weekend getaway.
First off, he put his best paw forward for some shopping on Glasgow’s famous Style Mile, accompanying his owner Emma to Cath Kidston to pick his very own collar in the brand’s trademark spotty print. After a run around Glasgow Green, George stopped for a picture just outside Glasgow’s Queen Street station to let other local pooches know that train travel with ScotRail is just paw-fect for pups and their human friends. After building up an appetite, he headed to dog-friendly Saint Luke’s, located in the beautifully restored B-listed Saint Luke's Parish Church, for some tasty food from their doggy menu.
After a good night’s sleep, George followed his other owner Victoria for a spot of breakfast at Glasgow's Malmaison Hotel (which also welcomes dogs to stay the overnight with their owners), before a leg stretch and lunch at the Ubiquitous Chip.
After a spot of modelling his lovely new #ScotSpirit Dogrobe in Kelvingrove Park, and being the envy of all other dogs, it was off to Loch Lomond with his human friends. He checked in to the Old Schoolhouse B&B before settling down for some dog-approved grub at the Inn on Loch Lomond.
The next morning there was no time for a doggy lie-in as George was off for a special paddle-board experience with Victoria, courtesy of Loch Lomond Leisure who allow water-loving dogs to try it out with their human companions. After that there was time for a stroll around Loch Lomond Shores and lunch at Loch Lomond Arms, before George headed back to his dog basket at home in Glasgow to dream of more adventures!
