Buckingham Palace Announces: Dotty No Longer a Suspect

Hi. Allow me to introduce myself. I'm Terry. Shirley is my human Mom.

(Although this is one for the sideblog normally, I thought it deserved a post).

Talk about being tried in the press—for the last week, the world has believed that Princess Anne’s terrier, Dotty, had killed one of the Queen’s beloved corgi’s, Pharos. Yesterday, Dotty was cleared and a new suspect emerged: Florence.

Presumably, Dotty had been assumed as the killer because of her past criminal record. Indeed, Princess Anne is the only member of the current royal family to have a record (at least for her dog)…just last year, people were calling for Dotty to be destroyed because Princess Anne failed to put her on a leash and she attacked two children (Dotty, not Anne, but the ambiguity of that sentence amuses me).

Perhaps they should have Shirley MacLaine’s Terrier, Terry, to go and talk to her English cousins. We can only hope Anne received an autographed copy of Out on a Leash for Christmas to learn how to better relate to her terriers.

    I bet Dottie is enjoying a celebratory bowl of kibble and a nice feeling of vindication.
