Doherty had never heard about the series and had no idea who Markle was.
It was not until Doherty said she would have to pay a visit to Markle to ascertain if she met all the requirements of adopting a dog, that it started downing on her the kind of person she was dealing with. She was informed she needed to have an appointment.
Doherty was unable to go to Markle house but was able to monitor happenings around Guy’s life on Instagram. She was delighted to see Guy alongside Markle walking on some of Toronto streets.
It came against all expectations, she said. Guy went from a miserable dog to dining with the royal family.
It was in November when the confirmation came. Guy was now living in the UK with Markle. Bogart the other dog is said to be living with Markel’s friends. It is understood his old age made it impossible for him to travel to the UK.
Doherty said although it was amazing how Guy came to live with the royal family, many other rescue dogs have ended up performing vital roles in the society.
Some of the 1600 dogs rescued by her organization over the last seven years, work with cancer specialists helping them detect the killer disease, while others offer support to depressed people. Others work with border officers in the border between the US and Canada.
She says most of her dogs have had a significant impact on people’s lives, with most having a happy end, she, however, notes that Guy’s story is the most astonishing.
