Muggles, the new royal corgi is to be trained by a top media and public relations agency, after being accused of being a "plastic pooch" selected only because of her breed. Long held convention forbids a royal corgi to speak out in when attacked, but close friends of the dog have sprung to her defence.
Springer Spaniel Smythers, owned by the Duchess of Kent, said Muggles is a sincere fun loving party animal especially fond of Duran Duran's music. "She adores smelling the faeces of other dogs." said the Duchess. "It is typical of her that she doesn't care if they are the faeces of a street mongrel or a thoroughbred. As long as they are really smelly and full of personality, like her own. She doesn't discriminate." Muggles is said to be "hurt" by media suggestions that she sniffed the bottom of media celeb dog Churchill at a recent street party.
The media training is understood to include teaching Muggles how to beg the media to leave her alone, to sit on command and remain silent, and to "shake hands" with people from all walks of life.
