Lucky pup

Four months have passed since the wedding of William and Catherine, credited with breathing new life into Britain’s royal family.

Watch out, newbies — Charles and Camilla are gaining on you.

Sure, you didn’t accept wedding gifts, instead requesting contributions to a list of charities near-and-dear to your hearts.  And Catherine isn’t doing the ladies-in-waiting routine associated with princesses past.

In fact, you’re living quite simply in a rented home in North Wales while William completes his three-year stint with the RAF.  Going to the pub.  Catching a late-night movie.  Even shopping for your own groceries.

Props for living like normal folks.

Not to be outdone, Charles and Camilla recently adopted Beth, a Jack Russell terrier puppy from the Battersea Dogs Home in London.

Now, the royals are long known for being dog lovers.  The Queen Mother is often photographed with her purebred corgis.  So it is exciting to see the future king rescue a puppy instead of going the traditional breeder route.  It sets a great example for everyone.

I can only hope it becomes as trendy — and garners as much attention — as the hats at the royal wedding!
