Report: Princess to Send Dog to Shrink
Sun Jan 4,11:12 AM ET Add Top Stories - AP to My Yahoo!


LONDON - Princess Anne will send her dog to an animal psychologist to avoid having it euthanized after it attacked a royal maid and fatally mauled one of Queen Elizabeth II (news - web sites)'s beloved corgis, the Sunday Telegraph reported.

Psychologist Roger Mugford said he expected to begin work with Florence the bull terrier next week. Mugford said that he believed the attacks were related to an underlying medical factor.


"We are not talking about an inherently aggressive or dangerous dog," Mugford was quoted as saying in newspaper. "I am sure it is just a dog who is feeling a bit out of sorts about something, perhaps pain or old age, and is feeling a bit cranky on the day."

Buckingham Palace has refused to comment on whether Florence would be put down.

The royal maid, 55-year-old Ruby Brooker, was treated for a minor bite following Saturday's attack at the royal Sandringham estate in eastern England, the palace said.

The Mail on Sunday quoted Brooker's husband, David, as saying the queen had personally apologized to his wife over the incident.


Five days earlier, Florence attacked a corgi named Pharos at Sandringham, injuring him so badly that he had to be euthanized. Media reports had widely blamed another of Princess Anne's bull terriers, Dotty, for the corgi incident, but Buckingham Palace cleared her Tuesday and blamed Florence instead.


British media reported that Florence had no history of violent behavior, unlike Dotty, who bit two children in a park in 2002 and landed Princess Anne with an $880 fine

Isn't that what a regular vet should be able to determine? Sheesh, maybe they should take Anne to the vet. Roger Mugford, indeed.

Interesting that Princess Anne has two vicious dogs. Wonder what these two dogs have in common?

What is Princess Anne worth? It might be profitable for a few servants to be bitten by this dog.....

The royal maid needs the psychologist. She provoked the dog. This story just doesn't provide the details of what really happened.

,,, the dog's taking the rap here - it's so transparent! The Princess bit the maid. Her pillowbiting brother is probably laughing down the palace corridor under his mum's skirt.

Lol, Cindy, I just read your profile page again! My screen name is from my previous dog, and I just bought a 6 week old Yorky that I named 'Piper'.

I forgot what a job a new puppy is!

Bump for Texas!
