Who here isn’t thrilled about the impending nuptials of Prince William and Kate Middleton? I mean, I have my DVR set already. However, I learned another piece of random royal trivia today that personalized these far off, lofty people a little more. Apparently, Kate has a black cocker spaniel, named Otto. The little dog is apparently very Knightley-like, mischievous on occasion, but completely loveable. Last year, he ate some antique pearl earrings that William had gifted Kate. Kate, being the new people’s princess, was able to retrieve the remains of the earrings (which of course were ruined after running their course through the canine digestional tract). William was just happy that Otto wasn’t seriously injured as “He adores the dog, who is very sweet.” That happened last spring, but this is my first time hearing about it. That is usually about the timetable that I hear about these things.
I don’t think I should tell Knightley this story. He might not be pleased with the fact that there is a black cocker spaniel somewhere in the world that may be even more spoiled than he is. Knightley has never feasted upon pearls.
