Kate Middleton's Dog Ate Her Birthday Gift, Left Her A 'Present'

It's time for Kate Middleton to get a jewelry box...or else a good pair of gloves. Prince William's girlfriend reportedly had to "search through dog poop" after her dog ate a pair of earrings gifted to her by William for her 28th birthday.

She left the antique studs on her nightstand where her dog Otto probably got hold of them.

"She knew William had spent a lot of money on the earrings and she was embarrassed that she had mislaid them," a friend of Middleton's told the Daily Mail UK.

Middleton ended up finding the earrings in Otto's "business," but Prince William graciously offered to replace them. What a gent!
