LOL!! I very clearly remember seeing this photo when it was first published in a tabloid in the wake of Caroline 's separation from Philippe Junot over the caption "HE'S THE JEALOUS TYPE!"

That was the early 80's, and poor Caroline was the focus of a paparazzi and tabloid onslaught that makes the current fixation on her daughter Charlotte seem like nothing.

I cant stop laughing looking at that photo. Not sure why it hit me so hard but something about it is hilarious. Maybe not if you were whoever the dog was aimed at.

Was it really her pet, or did they have like the guard dog in the car for some reason? He definitely didn't like the press either way.

He was definitely Caroline's dog Countessmeout. His name was "Onyx" if I remember correctly and he and Caroline were inseparable for a while after her divorce.

I cracked up laughing when I first saw the photo years ago and even now it still makes me laugh...I wish her daughter Charlotte could have her own Onyx today!

That is the most adorable photo that I have ever seen of the PoW!

Royals and Cats

Hi, this is just about a little observation I've made but why aren't there any royals with pet cats? It's just that I'm a cat person and I'd just like to know why is it that any time I see a royal with a pet it's always a dog. Are cats just not popular or something? Why aren't there any cats?

I also really like cats and it's a reality that royalty never shows up with cats but rather with dogs. I wonder why?

My guess is that the tendency towards dogs comes from the popularity of hunting among royals.

I thought Princess Michael of Kent had a Burmese cat called Ruby.
Given that the Queen swaps houses a bit, perhaps the portability of a dog is a consideration when royals are choosing a pet.
When dogs are everywhere then cats often feel less at ease.
If there were cats they would not be seen being walked by their royal owner like a dog is seen out in public. We would never know.
Cats kill native birds so that could be a turn off in homes with lovely gardens.

But dogs are a turn off in homes with lovely carpets.

Think of a cat, any cat, that would deign to allow you to cart it around so RR's could take photos.

Most royalas travel a lot and change residences. Cats are territorial and it is stressful for cats to travel.
I also can't imagine playful felines frolicking amongst priceless antiques and fabrics of royal residences.

And cats still remember they were once worshipped as gods so I doubt they would be happy being owned by royals since they wouldn't have as high of a status as them; it seems

This is very precious and they deserve the criticism they get for this one in my opinion.
