Get Your Dog Involved in the Jubilee Celebrations!
This weekend, we’re celebrating Her Majesty the Queen and her amazing achievement of 70 years of service. I’m sure you will have noticed that the Queen is also a dog lover. You will have seen her corgis many times, but did you know that she’s had over 30 in her lifetime? There are currently four royal dogs living at Buckingham Palace and they have their own Corgi Room! The dogs are called Candy, Lissy, Muick and the newest addition’s name will be revealed this weekend during the jubilee celebrations on June 4th.
The Queen’s love of corgis began in 1933 when her father, King George VI, surprised his daughters with one. On her 18th birthday in 1944, the Queen, then Princess Elizabeth, was gifted her very own canine companion who always came with her everywhere. The Queen then went on to breed corgis and dorgis (a corgi and dachshund mixed breed) and all of the corgi pups she’s ever had have descended from her very first own dog. Isn’t that amazing?
