I can empathize with HM and know that Holly will be sorely missed. As most of us that have four legged family members know, the sickness and death of one leaves a big, empty hole that just cannot be filled. We also know that that we always strive to do what is best for our family.

That's sad to hear. I wonder if HM will get anymore corgis or if she will now just have Willow and her dorgis.

It been said that the Queen has stopped breeding Corgis. Considering the advanced ages of the dogs she has now, if she wanted new dogs, we would have seen them already. Maybe she doesn't to leave behind a large amount of dogs when she passes. No one else in the family seem to be Corgi people. I personally like Corgis and have a half corgi dog myself.

I believe it was said a few years ago that due to her age the Queen wasn't going to get any more dogs.

Yes it was said that she has stopped breeding dogs and has no plans to bring in new ones. I've read that (and heard it in a documentary or something as well) more than once.

Yes, that was said a few years back, the Queen would not be adding to her family of dogs.

All in all, how many did she have over the years? I know she was quite young when she got Susan - her first corgi - as a present.

Looking back in this Thread, there is a lot of chat about Dogs of the past and links to articles that document that. Starting here: The Queen's Dogs

You're right; I guess this means that Willow will be the last corgi in the immediate RF for now.

Do you know the name of the documentary, because I don't seem to recall that? Maybe it's a documentary that I've already watched and have just forgotten about that snippet of information.

You for sure got that right. Two years ago our 13-year-old cat got cancer and his kidneys shut down, so we had to put him to sleep; I was downright distraught for quite some time, the emotional wound would just burst open out of nowhere. But now we have a new little kitten, 10-week-old Princess Zelda; she's a calico-tabby mix.

A few years ago it was reported that the Queen had stopped adding to her family of dogs. So the family are getting and going to get smaller as the years go by.

I bellieve Holly died in the last few weeks. I'm not sure how old the youngest is, but there is a good chance HM could outlive them all!

In articles posted earlier in this thread it is mentioned that the last remaining corgi is now 13

I read the article on the menu/s and had to laugh! The rascals were and are so spoilt! But they are not racehorses after all so (imagine the cost of that!) a little bit of lee way should be made here! They have (spoilt little brats that they are!) given the Queen a lot of us time so quite ok in my book!

This is a serious accusation, and for those of you who don't read the article the dog in question was a Jubilee year gift to HM. So, it is not as if the Queen bred a cheat, which we all know she would not do. Although the headline does lead one to doubts...
But the prize-winning dog will be examined to see if it is indeed a purebred, rather than a cross.
Her Majesty is, I would guess, mortified.
Sadly, it might be a great dog - but that matters not at all in competition where bloodlines are ALL. Poor beastie, it is not to blame, nor is the Queen.
My niece once asked me what purebred I wanted and I told her I wanted none. All our much loved and loving dogs were mutts. Woof.

What a life these doggies had - and what a handful they were for the poor staff -
