The Duchess of Sussex left her dog Bogart in Canada when she moved to Britain. Royal fans expected the Duchess to meet her Labrador-German Shepherd crossbreed rescue dog when she moved to Los Angeles with Prince Harry and their son Archie.
“Bogart never took Harry when they spent time together in Canada.
“He didn’t like Harry. Meghan was very vocal about the fact that it wouldn’t be fair to take it over full time, given Bogart’s feelings for her husband.
“Of course, his staff in the UK who knew about his decision found his statement rather strange, but they accepted it literally because Meghan knows his dogs. “
When the Duchess first moved to Britain, she said that Bogart would stay in Canada with “very close friends”.
But she brought a black Labrador and kept a Beagle called Guy when she moved to the UK.
The black Labrador is said to be Oz and was seen walking with the royal couple in Los Angeles.

Speaking to Reader’s Digest, she said, “This is my very first dog. I did not grow up with dogs.
“I was in Los Angeles and I went to this dog rescue.
“So I saw him and I was sitting there with him, then Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi came in.
“Now I don’t know her but Ellen says ‘Is this your dog?’. And I said, “No” and she said, “You have to take this dog.”
“And so I brought him home. Because Ellen told me.
“I started to see that he likes the company of people, but just like I like the company of dogs, I don’t want to stay only with dogs all day, so I realized that he might like companion.”
The Duchess added Guy to her dog family to give Bogart some company.
Bogart was the Duchess’ very first dog when she got it from a rescue center in LA.
When the Duchess moved to the United Kingdom, Bogart was considered too old to make the long journey according to the Sun.
He is looked after by friends of the Duchess.
