Passengers both human and canine can learn about the city’s lone dog cemetery, the corgis of Buckingham Palace, and the dog-related laws that have been passed in the House of Parliament. If they so desire, they can stroll the green of Kensington Palace, where Prince William and Princess Kate reside with their two children and their black cocker spaniel, Lupo. If they’re feeling parched or peckish, they can get off the bus and follow their tour-provided map of dog-friendly eateries and pubs.
More than 60 dogs and their owners took part in the free tour Monday, according to More Th>n, the company that’s hosting it. Alas, its run ends Thursday, because this tour is more of a publicity stunt than a service. More Th>n, an insurance company that offers pet coverage, dreamed it up to mark the launch of its new product, Doggyssenti>ls, which delivers poo bags, dog treats, flea treatments and a toy or shampoo to members’ doorsteps each month.
