Cleo (26 February 2011 - 29 October 2021) was a Border Collie-German Shepherd cross who belonged to the family of Princess Hannah of Wildflower Meadows. Born on the Isle of Skye, Cleo soon moved to live with the Princess' family close to Wandleside.

Cleo was appointed the first Honorary Mascot of the Order of the Bullmastiff on her seventh birthday, 26 February 2018, by Emperor Jonathan I after no suitable bullmastiff could be found to fill the actual position. Provision had been made in an Austenasian law of 2016 for a non-bullmastiff to be made Honorary Mascot should the position fall vacant.

Cleo moved to Surrey along with the Princess' family in December 2019. After falling seriously ill in October 2021 and rapidly deteriorating, she was put to sleep at the end of the month after it was confirmed her condition could not be treated. Her ashes were scattered on 26 February 2022 - her would-be 11th birthday - in Beddington Park.
