Dinner time for Corgis

Ever wondered what the Queen's corgies get as food?

Starting at 2:45 you can watch the preparation of a delicious corgy meal

In a book titled Royal Britain (which I would easily recommend ), it talks about the Queen giving her Corgis Pedigree Chum, which she apparently feeds them herself on a silver spoon...

Here is the new stained glass window at the Queen's Chapel of the Savoy, showing the Queen, mounted on horse, corgi under heel: http://www4.pictures.zimbio.com/gi/Q...4dNbhrs01l.jpg

She obviously understands how these companions animals live together! So fun.

A perfect tribute to The Queen.

I'm not at all surprised. Those Corgis are very, very lucky to be living in such a loving environment.

This is a very nice tribute. It captures pretty much all aspects of Her Majesty, including her four-legged friends.

Thanks for the link to the picture of the window. It's gorgeous and I love how they also put in Her Majesty's signature by using the leading, I think that's what it's called, and it just so adds to the look of the design. :) Really, really stunning.

I sometimes give my cat a lick of my yogurt, or any dairy product for that matter!

Very nice pictures. Shame we don't see The Queen with her Corgi's like we used to.

I wonder how many dogs she has currently. Wasn't there a rumor that she'd decided to stop getting new puppies? And didn't one of her dogs pass away from old age not that long ago?

Yeah, I believe one of her corgis did pass away. There was a story that The Queen would stop breeding new puppies but I don't know how true the story was.

Yes - one of the 'bond' dogs passed away shortly after the Olympics.

I too remember the story that she wouldn't have any more puppies due to her age.

It makes sense. Even though the Queen is from a family who often lives to an extraordinary age, she's still getting to a point where she must be ready to slow down in some ways, and it makes sense that she wouldn't want to take on new puppies at this point in her life. Still must have been a hard decision, and must be hard to see the large pack she's had for so long grow smaller.

What I'd love to know is if there are still Dorgis around the Palace? I've heard of them, but I don't think I've ever seen a picture of one come to think of it.

It is a shame that such a doggie lover as HM won't be getting herself any new Puppies, at her age it's also understandable, but what a hard decision that had to be to make.
