Celebrities and their dogs hit the headlines for all sorts of reasons - some good, some bad - but I spotted a story this morning that made me smile. Courteney Cox (star of Friends, the Scream movies and Cougar Town) has two Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, Hopper and Harley and along with her daughter Coco, the whole pack recently moved into a 25th floor apartment. Courteney was faced with the problem of needing to let her dogs have toilet breaks late at night without leaving Coco alone. Practical Courteney installed a grass pad on the balcony, but the dogs wouldn't "go" on it. I love the fact that rather than throw money at the dilemma, she went with a simple solution that
showed she can empathise with her dogs.
To show the dogs what to do Courteney simply peed on the grass herself. Problem solved!
The actress revealed the details on Ellen De Generes's show and it may be something she has to do again and again, as a new grass pad is delivered each week.
