My ex husband is quite keen on Beagling on the East Coast. Has anyone ever heard of any of the royals hunting with them?

Sad but inevitable, if no one else in the family likes them.

When my grandma was dying she was very concerned about the wellbeing of her elderly pampered darling, Mac. Mac was very snappish and had made himself very unpopular in my dog-loving family. At the wake my uncle was offering him as a door prize. (Don't worry, Mac outlived my uncle... and was taken care of by my aunt and mother.)

The Queen is just being a responsible owner not breeding what she can't guarantee a decent life. The other thing is, as you get older you're more likely to take a tumble on one of your babies too -- although the Queen Mum seemed to have corgis/dorgis to the end. But it's probably something an elderly person should consider.

Photos of the Queen with her dogs

Unfortunately, I don't have a scanner but I have an older book (about 20 old) with lovely pictures of the Queen as a child with her first Corgi, Dookie, and other dogs.

I thought it might be a fun thread if we could post photos of the Queen with her dogs, especially pre-World War II photos if you have them.

Queen solves mystery of killer dog bug which affected dogs at Sandringham | Mail Online

As our best-known animal lover, the Queen has taken a keen interest in the mystery illness that has struck down dogs after they have been walked in woods on her Sandringham estate, killing at least eight of them. Now, just as she prepares for her family Christmas at Sandringham, Her Majesty has received some welcome news.The Queen, who asked scientists from the Animal Health Trust to investigate the canine illness, had warned dog walkers to be vigilant after her land became the worst hit area in the country. Her own dogs are equally at risk, including her corgis and the Labradors that pick up pheasants on her Boxing Day shoot.

The trust believes that the outbreak of so-called Seasonal Canine Illness, which affected 49 dogs exercised in woodland at Sandringham this autumn, appears to be over. No new cases have been reported for more than a month, so the Queen can relax, knowing that royal shooting parties on the estate are no longer at risk.

The trust also believes it has discovered the cause, after a botanist from the Natural History Museum was able to rule out various theories...The trust now thinks the bug is linked to bites from an infestation of harvest mites.

Being an animal lover myself, I'm not sure I could relax, nor do I expect HM will relax easily.

I agree, I can't imagine losing one of my puppies let alone eight! The article just says they think they know the cause, but have they found a way of preventing this to happen again?

That's terrible. I can imagine that Her Majesty will not be very relaxed about this during the holidays.

They're so cute I am sure they provide some sort of entertainment to the royal family, just like any other dog only that they are royally trained.

This is just tragic. I haven't been reading the mail, but I read the other major British papers daily and haven't heard a thing about this illness.

How many dogs total have died? 49? If so, that's just terrifying. I'm reading it as 49 affected...did any of the Queen's own dogs die? I'm confused.

As of February,2012, how many dogs remain? I read from the official website that The Queen has four Corgis – Linnet, Monty, Holly, Willow. She also has three Dorgis (cross-breed of Dachshund and Corgi) Cider, Candy, Vulcan.... but those facts are a few years old. Does any one know how old the dogs are as Well?

Can one acquire dogs from the Sandringham kennels or are they only given away as gifts or into already known hands?

Queen's corgis 'attack Princess Beatrice's pet terrier dog during a walk at Balmoral' | Mail Online


Well, well, well ... I'd rather reread Bel Mooney's book on her dog Bonnie and how Camillas old Terrier was flirting with Bonnie.

I guess we all need a little help sometimes:
Queen calls for an end to the Balmoral bloodbath - Telegraph

It is a task that will require infinite reserves of patience, tact and courage, but the Queen has found the man who can put a stop to any more blood being spilled at Balmoral. Mandrake can disclose that Roger Mugford, the animal psychologist who has extensive experience of the Royal Family’s pets, is to be commanded to restore order among the monarch’s corgis.

“Her Majesty keeps her dogs disciplined, but she recognises that sometimes they have problems that require professional help,” a courtier tells me. He was alluding to a regrettable incident during the Royal Family’s summer holiday in Scotland in which one of the Queen’s corgis subjected Max, Princess Beatrice’s 11-year-old terrier, to a ferocious assault.

The rogue corgi has yet to be identified, but the Queen owns three of the dogs, Monty, Holly, Willow. She also has three “dorgis” - a dachshund and corgi cross - who are named Cider, Candy and Vulcan. Mugford is accustomed to blood-thirsty patients. His most notorious was Florence, the Princess Royal’s English bull terrier, who, over a blood-splattered Christmas at Sandringham in 2003, attacked Pharos, the Queen’s venerable corgi, with such savagery that he had to be put down. Five days later, Florence went for a maid, Ruby Brooker, biting deeply into her leg. Miss Brooker later left the Royal Household after 20 years’ service. Mugford subsequently assured me that, thanks to his treatment, Florence had “reformed” her ways.

Thats just horrible. I didnt know that Corgis were so vicious. I misjudged them thinking they were so sweet and calm. I guess a doggy intervention is needed and soon!

I remember reading that they could be nippy, but didn't think that dogs that are relatively small could be that aggressive. I was also fooled by their precious fox-like faces . They look so cute and cuddly.
