Doggie Cemetery - Edinburgh Castle

I thought this was so sweet and really love the flowers that have been put out on all the graves.  In the background is Prince's Street, where you can "Shop Until You Drop"!!


The Dog Cemetery
The British are renowned for their love of dogs, and this little cemetery is proof.  Since the 1840's it has served as a burial place for regimental mascots and officers' pet dogs.  Here lie such "faithful' as Jess, band pet of 42nd Royal Highlanders (The Black Watch), who died 1881 and Dobbler, who for nine years until his death in 1893 followed by the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders to such exotic locations as China, Sri Lanka and South Africa.
