A Royal ‘Furry-Tail’

With all the excitement of the impending Royal Wedding, talk in the office has not been about Meghan’s dress, or how cute the littlest royals will look, but about how much we love the Royal Corgis and Dorgis.

Elizabeth II has been fond of Corgis since she was a small child and has owned more than 30 corgis since she became Queen. The name Corgi’s comes from two welsh words meaning ‘Dwarf’ & ‘Dog’.

The Queen’s Corgis are known across the world and are often depicted alongside her in artwork, sculptures and even movies.

You may remember the royal Corgi’s appearing alongside the Queen and actor Daniel Craig in the 2012 London Olympics opening ceremony James Bond sketch.

It has been widely reported that the Queen stopped breeding corgis in 2015 so as not to leave any behind when she died. Although her final corgi, Willow, died earlier this year, her ‘Dorgis’ (Dachshund cross Corgi’s), Vulcan and Candy, are still alive.

Corgis are an intelligent breed that love to learn new tricks. One of the main reasons Corgis are so popular is due to their loving and spirited temperament.

While Corgis may be small, they certainly have a bark bigger than their bellies. They tend to be alert and vigilant and quick to learn their territory.

We recently caught up with Buddies Breeders Steve and Sue who shared some fabulous images of their beautiful Corgis.
