Kate Middleton’s Earring Munching Dog Vanishes

by | 9th, March 2010

KATE Middleton, lover to Prince William of the tatty wig , has lost her beloved dog. You know, the one that ate those expensive earrings and then passed them in its poo.

Tabloid Watch’s MacGuffin investigates the case of the vanishing POOch:

IN a post yesterday, this blog suggested that a spaniel swallowing a piece of jewellery isn’t really a front page news story.

And that’s even more true when it’s completely made up.

Here’s the headline from the online version :

Hack Kate Nicholl goes on to repeat lengthy quotes from a conveniently anonymous friend about how Prince William gave girlfriend Kate Middleton some pearl earrings, which were then eaten by her spaniel. And to add an eye-catching bit of detail:

when the earrings finally emerged, she realised that there was no rescuing them, they were so badly damaged and chewed up.

Prince William’s girlfriend looking through her dog’s poo for an earring? It sounds a bit like the Prime Minister throwing a tangerine into a laminating machine . And, like the fruit-chucking hoax, it’s been picked up unquestioningly by others, including David Harrison in the Telegraph (surprise!) and several media outlets in America.
