Fido facts...

Animal lover Queen Elizabeth II (she's also an expert equestrian) has elevated the literally lowly corgi to icon status by being photographed with her dogs and stopping to chat at public events with fellow corgi-philes. Her father, King George VI, brought the breed into the family in 1933, but recent evidence suggests the royal fondness extends even further. In 2004, archaeologists at a dig in Wales where the queen's ancestors lived during the ninth century discovered a leg bone from a corgi-like dog. Her Majesty also loves Horses.
