It's as good a claim to fame as any, having once walked Meghan Markle's adorable dogs Guy and Bogart.

For Sarah Blake Knox, the memory of being broke while trying to 'make it' in Canada has both good and bad memories.

The bad, being the fact that she was forced to live on french fries for a month due to budget issues. The good, being that she got to interact with a future member of the Royal Family, Meghan Markle.

The writer and TV production assistant took a job as a dog walker while living in Toronto to help make ends meet.

Blake Knox writes in the Irish Independent that she walked over 50 dogs during six months, but there is one memory that stands out.

"Within a few weeks, I already had my favourite clients. One of whom was a lovable character called Bogart. Much like his namesake, Bogart was very charming and a real ladies’ man. All the bitches loved him. It was only after a few weeks, that I was first notified that Bogart’s owner was famous and I immediately knew that was not to be sniffed at. Unbeknownst to me, by 2013, Meghan Markle was already a big deal. Suits was in its third season by then and had given Meghan her big break. I had not heard of it. So when I was told that I would be Meghan Markle’s dog walker, I wasn’t that excited."

The expat recalls that Markle "stood out" amongst the many dog owners she liaised with.

"In our interactions I found her open and down to earth, warm with a dry sense of humour. She was always extremely friendly when I arrived to collect Bogart and would welcome me into the house," she reveals.

"This stood out for me as the majority of owners wouldn’t even say hello. Meghan was different; she was one of the few people to treat me like, well, a human being."

So, where is Bogart now? 

According to W Magazine, the former actress was forced to leave the rescue dog behind in Toronto when she made the move to the UK.

Reports claim that Markle was told by the vet to leave Bogart in the care of friends due to his old age and failing health.

The outlet also reports the incredible story of how Bogart came to be in Markle's possession in the first place.

The publication says that it was none other than talk show host Ellen DeGeneres and her wife Portia de Rossi who caused Markle to adopt the dog.

DeGeneres allegedly told Markle that she "had to rescue" the dog when they randomly met at a shelter - they weren't acquaintances at the time.

"I’m sitting there holding him and she’s like, 'Have you thought of a name for him yet?' And I said, 'Well, I think I’d name him Bogart,' and she’s like, 'You’re taking the dog home,;" Markle once said.
