Social distancing has put a halt to dinner parties worldwide. We're all coping in different ways, but James Middleton may have come up with the best alternative.
On Wednesday night, Kate Middleton's brother posted two photos on Instagram, showing his dogs prepared for a civilized meal. The four pups sat at a fully set dinner table with napkins around their necks and kibble on ceramic plates in front of them. Middleton captioned the photos, "Socialising while social distancing. Who wants to join?"
The royal relative has been very vocal about his dogs helping with his depression, so it's no surprise that Middleton would continue to turn to his pets in this unprecedented time. He is even working on a documentary, entitled James Middleton's Super Dogs about the power dogs can have in mental health recovery.
"My own dogs played a vital role in my recovery from clinical depression," Middleton said, in reference to the documentary. "In light of this I want to celebrate the important role dogs play in our lives and the unconditional love and support they give us.”
The Duchess's brother continues to honor his dogs, named Ella, Inca, Luna, Zulu and Mabel, both in his work and on his Instagram. Since they provided Middleton comfort during his depression, it is safe to assume they continue to play that import mental health role in the midst of a global pandemic.
Middleton is one of many public figures coping with new social distancing guidelines in order to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) defines social distancing as “remaining out of congregate settings, avoiding mass gatherings, and maintaining distance (approximately 6 feet or 2 meters) from others when possible.”
Fortunately, these guidelines don't apply to dogs, so feel free to curl up with your furry friends as much as you want.
