Blaze and his fund-raising calendar

Skye superdog Blaze and his calendar fund-raiser have brought in £2,000 for the island's Mountain Rescue Team.

The doggy determination of the local pooch has paid off with copies of his colourful collection of photos snapped up before the New Year.

Earlier this year Blaze made local news when he made the final of the VisitScotland “Ambassadog” competition.

However, it was back in 2014 that, again through his calendar that Blaze became known to thousands. Thanks to his 9,000 Twitter followers and the 90,000 on Scotland from the Roadside Facebook page, he raised £1,000 for Glencoe Mountain Rescue.
