Meghan Markle’s Rescue Beagle Has a New Book Just in Time for Christmas!

Everyone loves an underdog story. Sure, Meghan Markle was a successful woman and celebrity in her own right before marrying Prince Harry, but she always seemed ‘just like us’ to me. Because she’s so relatable, her story is like something out of a fairy tale. And now Meghan Markle’s dog Guy has published his own fairy tale!

His Royal Dogness, Guy the Beagle: The Rebarkable True Story of Meghan Markle’s Rescue Dog has just been released in hardcover and we were super excited to get our paws on an early copy so that we could tell you all about it.

Like all good fairy tales, Guy’s begins in the backwoods of Kentucky. He was lost and living alone until he met his forever owner at an adoption event; her name was Meghan Markle. They did everything together: went on walks, played fetch, and binge-watched Suits. Guy absolutely adored her, but he wasn’t the only one. A human loved Meghan, too; his name was Harry. Tall and debonair with hair the color of a traffic cone, Harry was also a prince.

Guy soon finds himself in London, ecstatic about this new adventure. He works hard to fit in to the royal dog way of life, but he struggles. He has no fancy papers, no high-class education, and no command over the British puparazzi. As Meghan and Harry’s wedding day approaches, Guy feels as alone and desperate. But when the Queen gets into a bind when a royal tradition is nearly forgotten, Guy’s backwoods Kentucky skills might be able to save the day. With the Queen’s encouragement, Guy learns the true meaning of family—even if it’s a royal one.

This is a cute, funny and heartwarming book for dog lovers of all ages, and makes the perfect holiday gift. Daisy is a rescue dog too, so Guy the Beagle’s story is especially touching.

We heard some super exciting news from our pals at ASPCA and wanted to share it with all of you!

Just last week, the winning shelter was announced in the ASPCA Rachael Ray 100K Challenge. This is the annual challenge in which animal shelters around the country compete to see who can save the most lives. The grand prize winning shelter receives $100K to help them continue their important work. You can go here to view all the winners and prizes.

This marks the fifth and final year of the competition. Since 2010, hundreds of contestants have dedicated themselves to this three month contest to increase their adoption numbers over the same period the previous year.

This year, the competing shelters saved more than 68,000 lives in just three months. In five years total, challengers saved more than a 282,000+ lives! Pet adoption is an important cause and is especially near and dear to my heart, because our Daisy is a rescue dog we adopted from a local shelter.

We hope you’ll join us in continuing to help save lives & support pet adoption:
