A walk down memory lane today, back to 2009 — the very first year of the blog!
This post is dedicated to the past and present royal Corgis of H.R.M. Queen Elizabeth II, the world’s most famous Corgi lover.
The Queen’s recent decision to stop breeding her royal Corgis signals the end of an era. It’s difficult to imagine the expanses of Buckingham or Balmoral without those merry little legs, isn’t it?
From a young age, the Queen has been deeply connected with her dogs. Over the years she’s had many different Corgis, including some Doxie/Corgi crosses (“Dorgis”). For Corgi lovers like us, it is easy to understand why she chose their consummate company above other breeds.
After all, even the Queen is not immune to Corgi Power.

It is very interesting to see Her Majesty and her early corgis as they look much different than our friends today. Remind me of my first corgi Shan who join our family in spring 1964. His mom had been brought to the States from England and shared much of her pedigree with the Queen’s corgis. Shan almost made it to almost 18.

If Corgis rule Buckingham Palace, then they rule the world and that makes them all royalty. Just so lovely. The queen is a true Corgi mom.
