Seamus, the Irish wolfhound, is the official mascot of the Guards Corps and sent social media into a tailspin as they dubbed the parade “the most gorgeous dog walk ever.”
As the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee festivities begin, all eyes are on London’s Royal Troops gathering in London.
But so far, the focus has not been on the Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Harry, or even HRH, as the Irish Guards mascot is currently stealing the show.
Seamus, a wolfhound I love, is the official mascot of the Guards Corps and has sent social media into a tailspin as they dubbed the parade “the most gorgeous dog walk ever.”
Twitter was flooded with comments about what a good kid Seamus was, as live news cameras followed his every move.
What do you think of Seamus? Let us know in the comments…
One Twitter user said: “I don’t understand much of the parade, but this dog is cute. I’ll give it to you, Brit. Seamus is cute.”
Another wrote: “We understand that Seamus is doing well and has not been demoted for biting the queen or misbehaving – vote for the dog again!”
Then a third wrote: “Don’t Seamus look spectacular? This has to be the most gorgeous dog walk ever.”
“There’s a dog in a group of colors ahhhhh,” another user exclaimed.
Another simply wrote: “Dogs are cool”
