Every news report had some mention of Prince ~William and his bride, Kate. Canine Charlie got in the mood for festivities with the rest of the world. He woke me up before five on Friday morning, just in time to turn on the "tellie" as they say in England and Watch the bride emerge from her car with her father. Charlie has a bit of a royal heritage. He is half shitzu. The shitzu is an an- cient breed of dog from China/Tibet. It was bred to sleep at the emperor's feet as a foot warmer. True to his heritage Charlie likes to sleep at my feet, a wel- O When it came to theyear old Westminster Abbey Charlie showed little interest. Although he comes from an ancient line of canines bred and groomed to look like little Chinese li- ons he is not that interested in the an- cient history of the British royals. Dur- ing the ceremony he fell asleep on the sofa while I enjoyed the splendid pipe organ and the choir. When the wed- ding bells rang and the happy couple emerged from the Abbey Charlie woke up. Not because he wanted to see the procession but because it was time for breakfast. He went to the kitchen and stood in front of his bowl, a clear indi- cation that itwas time to eat. After breakfast Charlie paraded through the house. Rather, he pranced through the house holding his head high and lifting his paws in a stylish fashion. I could see that he was smit- ten with Royal Fever as he cured his furry pompom tail over his romp and pranced toward the door for a walk in the fresh air. Charlie continued his Prince Charm- ing act throughout the weekend. He used his best manners to sit before he got a treat. His eyes were shining and his behavior was impeccable.
