Queen Elizabeth II and Her CorgisThis is a featured page

QEII and her Corgi subjects Celebrity: Queen Elizabeth II

Dogs: Ten corgis; most are descendents of Susan, an 18th-birthday gift to then-Princess Elizabeth

Breed: Pembroke Welsh Corgi

Other dogs: Dachshunds; also "dorgis," a dachshund-corgi cross

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.

I love Corgis. i have three. I see on the re-runs of a British comedy called, I think "Thin blue Line" in the office of the chief by the door a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II seated with one handsome Corgi. Anyone out there know where to get a copy of?
