The clip showed her husband Michael, 79, sitting on the couch holding the Maltipoo, saying: “You love your scratch on the belly” endearingly to the pooch. He then turned to Catherine, 54, and said: “he likes a scratch on the belly.” Catherine then turned the camera onto herself and said with a smile “he likes a scratch on the belly” as Michael continued to fuss over the adorable pup.  

Hilariously, she captioned the photo: “He likes a scratch on the belly… who doesn’t!” She then joked that she wanted a scratch on the belly too, adding “me next” with a heart emoji. The video indicates that after 23 years of marriage, the duo are still perfectly happy living in domestic harmony together.

Catherine and Michael introduced Taylor to the family in 2020 not long after Kirk Douglas, Michael’s father, died at the age of 103 years old.

Another similarly wrote: “Awwwwww that’s adorable have a great weekend Catherine, Michael and lil Taylor too”.
