10 Adorable Photos That Prove Animals Are the Way to Meghan Markle's Heart

There are several reasons why Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are a perfect match: they both enjoy helping others, they both have a way with kids, and they both have similar family values, but perhaps the cutest reason is that they both share a love of animals. Prior to moving to the UK and tying the knot with Harry, Meghan was the proud owner of two rescue dogs, Guy and Bogart. Guy ended up moving to the UK with Meghan, while Bogart stayed behind in Canada with one of her pals. Since becoming a royal, we've gotten to see Meghan bond with animals during her public engagements, and in August 2018, the couple even adopted a Labrador Retriever named Oz.

The Duchess of Sussex also penned a heartfelt forward for Mayhew's 2018 review. Meghan is a patron of the charity, which works to improve "the lives of dogs, cats and people in communities both in London and internationally." "As a proud rescue dog owner, I know from personal experience the joy that adopting an animal into your home can bring," she wrote. "The choice to adopt a pet is a big decision that comes with much responsibility but infinite return on the investment. It will undoubtedly change your life." If you're in need of pick-me-up today, here are a bunch of cute photos of Meghan with animals.
