Paws at the Palace event Scone Palace

On the 30th of  June 2019 Scone Palace held their first dog friendly event Paws at the Palace, it was in a very beautiful and historic part of Scotland. They had a brilliant turnout for their first year, 2,000 dogs attended, the event was in partnership with Dog Friendly Perthshire. In 2018 Scone Palace was mentioned as one of the most pet friendly places to visit in the world. Scone Palace also came first in a voting contest with TrustedHousesitters for its beautiful location and dog friendly attitude. On the day you could meet Scottish Dogs of Instagram including Little Biker Dog that travels around Scotland by motorbike with his owner Dave. One of the things I really liked about photographing this event was the stoned buildings and archiecture, they made for different and historical backdrops. There were also a variety of stall holders that attended Paws at the Palace including Staffies Smiles Rescue. I really enjoyed meeting some of the gorgeous Staffies Rocky and George who have been adopted through the rescue.

Through several events I have got to know Kratu a Romanian Rescue Assistance Dog, he was invited as a VIP guest to Paws at the Palace. He has touched the hearts of many people from around the world and brings smiles to everyone he meets and through his social media. Some of his fans were excited to meet him at the event on Sunday and did not want to leave without seeing him. He has also gained some new fans since the event. One of the highlights for Tess and Kratu was leading the parade to the palace. I have had pleasure of getting to know Tess and Kratu, their bond and connect ion is very special and clear to see. When you meet dogs such as Kratu it is difficult not to fall in love with him, he is a soulful dog and was made to feel very welcome https://www.kratutherescuedog.co.uk
