    A Posy From a Pooch: Service Dog Presents Bouquet to Queen Elizabeth (VIDEO)

    The dog-loving Monarch was visiting a charity in West Sussex that trains animals to help disabled people, when a lovely Labrador approached Her Majesty with a bunch of flowers in its mouth.

    An adorable black Labrador, named Yarna, was chosen to give flowers to the Queen during her visit to Canine Partners, a charity that trains dogs to assist people with physical disabilities in Heyshott, West Sussex. But instead of presenting the purple-and-white bouquet directly to Her Majesty, the seven-year-old dog accidentally dropped it at her feet, probably being slightly nervous being entrusted with such an honor.

    The incident, which looked pretty much like a bow or a curtsy, was laughed off by the dog's handler, Alison Bailey — at the end of the day Yarna "is a dog not a robot." "She did her very best," the handler said.

    The visit to Canine Partners was held on November 30 to celebrate the charity's 750th partnership and its milestone of having 400 dogs that help their disabled owners live normal lives.
