Sorry, Lupo: Royal Rescue Bluebell Wins National Dog Day

Queen Elizabeth has her corgis and Prince William and Princess Kate have their beloved cocker spaniel Lupo, but the royal who may be most devoted to her dogs is Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.

Prince Charles’ wife has been known to surprise well-wishers by bringing her dogs out with her to royal engagements, so it’s fitting that she opted to honor National Dog Day with her Jack Russell rescue, Bluebell.

While she and husband Prince Charles, 66, are in Scotland, staying at Birkhall house on the Balmoral estate, her office at Clarence House tweeted a picture of Bluebell.

She is the younger of the two Jack Russells that Camilla, 68, owns. The other, Beth, was adopted at three months old in 2011 from Battersea Dogs and Cats home, of which she is a supporter.

Bluebell, then aged about four months, was brought into the royal fold the following year.

In June, both made an appearance at a lively royal outing – a dog show held at Dumfries House, Scotland that Charles helped save and restore – with Beth winning an award. Bluebell simply enjoyed dashing around.

Perhaps the royal pups were treated to one of their mistress’s doggy bags in honor of their special day?
