Golden George Leads the Way to Glamis Castle

View Comments

He has had many pawesome journeys across Scotland, with visits to some pooch perfect destinations such as Kirkcudbright in Dumfries and Galloway, and Kiltarlity in the Highlands, and recently Scotland’s Ambassadog George made a special visit to Glamis Castle in Angus – for their annual Dogs’ Day Out.

ambassadog-glamis-castle-01The lucky golden retriever from Glasgow, and his owner Emma Rae, 23, travelled up to Angus to the historic venue to make some new four-legged friends of all sizes and breeds, be involved in the canine parade, and also take part in a very exciting Guinness World Record attempt: to get as many dogs wearing bandanas in one space as possible.

Organisers Burns Pet Food got tails wagging smashing the previous record set in 2015 – 764 dogs – with a new record of 860 dogs.

George and Emma also met representatives of the Golden Retrievers of Scotland club.
Emma said:

“George loves an adventure so it was the ideal opportunity to jump in the car and head north. We had never been to Glamis Castle for the Dogs’ Day Out and I had certainly never seen so many dogs in one place at one time. We had a great day!”
“Angus is also a great place to walk dogs so I was sure to let George have a chance to stretch his legs and enjoy the sunshine before we headed home.”

Glamis Castle is open 1 April – 29 August and dogs are welcome at the Nature Trail, Pinetum and Walled Garden if kept on a lead.
