Pooch of the Month

This is Marag:


His full name Marag Dubh, Gaelic for black pudding. He belongs to our Library team leader Katie. This month he won the Leither Magazine‘s pooch of month. Well done Marag!

Katie says Marag loves Leith Links, even though his favourite toy got stuck up a tree.

Our Leith Library Dog, Whisky was a little jealous of Marag. He thinks he should be pooch of the month so he’s climbed the office tree in a home-made sparkly number. He just wants people to notice him:


Can you beat Whisky? We’d love to see pictures of your festive fur balls (real or stuffed).

Email your pet pictures to leith.library@edinburgh.gov.uk or tweet @leithlibrary using the hashtag #festivefurballs.  Your festive fur balls will feature on our blog and the best one will win a copy of Black and White Publishing’s ‘Knit Your Own Scotland’:


Then you can knit your own Scottie Dog (he’s just in front of the Loch Ness Monster, follow Andy Murray’s racket).


Festive Furballs was featured on STV!  Read about it here.  

Check out our all of our competition entries so far in our Festive Furballs facebook album or see some highlights on our Festive Furballs pinterest pinboard.

Get your entries in by 23rd December. We will be judging them on Christmas Eve!
