James Middleton toasted International Dog Day with his Instagram co-stars -- Ella, Nala, Inca, Zulu, Mabel and Luna (and a few others guests) -- with champagne (for him) and a hearty meal of protein and such (for the pups).
Middleton wrote an op-ed in Jan. 2019 in which he credited his dogs with helping him cope with depression and ADD, which have prevented him from excelling at school and business over the years.
“Ella, particularly, has been my constant companion for ten years and she’s been with me to all my therapy sessions," he wrote in the essay, which was published in the Daily Mail. "In her own particular way, she has kept me going."
Middleton and Ella volunteer with the U.K.'s Pets as Therapy charity, which provides pet therapy visits to schools, care homes and other places in need of a furry friend.
