Royal visit to New Zealand – the dog connection

Today was the last day in New Zealand for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (aka Will and Kate).  And finally, we have something dog-related from this visit!

The Duke and Duchess visited the Royal New Zealand Police College in Porirua this morning.  There, they met puppies, dogs in training, and fully-fledged police dogs.

And after this doggy (and soggy) visit, the Royals are now off to their next stop on the Royal Tour – Australia.   I hope Australia’s dogs will also be able to participate in their visit!

William, Kate and Cocker Spaniel make three

People magazine speculated several weeks ago that Prince William and his wife, the Duchess of Cambridge, had expanded their family to include a puppy.  “The dog beside William and Kate’s side is most likely a black cocker spaniel.”

It’s now been confirmed.  The Prince and his wife are owners of a male cocker spaniel whose name hasn’t been released.  The pup will be company for Kate, who is home alone for the next six weeks as Prince William takes up his military posting in the Falkland Islands.

For my part, it’s nice to see the Royals confirm that they are dog people.  (As we know, the Queen has always been partial to the Corgi – read my previous blog posting on this breed).

May Kate, William and their little bundle of joy enjoy a happy life together!
