The Wales Family Pets
 
Do the Prince of Wales and the Duchess currently have any dogs?

Is Tigger still alive? I remember that her son Roo went missing and was never found (to my knowledge).

BeatrixFan 12-01-2006 07:06 PM

I think it was Roo that went down a rabbit hole and never came out again and Charles used to go walking every night trying to find him. I know that the Duchess has a dog and I think Charles has two dogs but I'm not quite sure. I imagine Camilla has a few horses.

Oppie 12-01-2006 07:18 PM

The Duchess has a dog named Tosca (he was named honourary dog of something)

iowabelle 12-01-2006 07:34 PM

Right, I remember Tosca now.

I will always remember that the PoW's chef at Highgrove, Mervyn, didn't like dogs in his kitchen and once stuck Tigger in a warm oven. (That wasn't very nice, Mervyn.)

iowabelle 12-01-2006 07:35 PM

The PoW website says the Duchess has three Jack Russells: Tosca, Rosie and Freddie.

Royal Fan 12-01-2006 08:54 PM

What about the Duke of Cornwall.

iowabelle 12-01-2006 09:03 PM

I didn't see that the biography of "the Duke" listed any pets.

July 2006. A lovely pic of Camilla's daughter Laura Lopes with Camilla's dogs.

Tigger died at 18!

milla Ca 12-02-2006 07:31 AM

I read that Tosca doesn´t like other dogs around her.
When Tigga was still alive and Camilla wanted to visit Charles with her dog, Tosca had to stay in the car, or in another room at Highgrove.
And i ´ve seen pics that shows that the Duchess takes her dogs with her when she is with the Prince in Scotland.

Skydragon 12-02-2006 07:51 AM

Tosca was originally given to Charles by Camilla, but, as you say milla Ca, Tosca was not too fond of other dogs. Camilla seems to have done wonders with her and she seems fairly well behaved now! IMO.

Camilla's dogs are Tosca, Freddie and Rosie, her horses are Molly, Willy and Bearskin. :flowers:

Roo went missing and was never found, nobody knows whether he died down a rabbit hole, was stolen or found by someone who thought he had been abandoned and just took him home.

I knew, that i read about this pony in a book, and now i´ve found it again.
It´s in the first German Camilla Biographie from Tatjana Gräfin Dönhoff.
She has written that Camilla became the pony (of a special race) as a Valentins-Day present from Charles in 2004. And that the name of the pony is Rompy.

I don´t know if it´s true...

As far as I can find, Camilla only owns the 3 horses and they are all kept at Highgrove. :flowers:

The name 'Rompy' sounds a bit suspicious! :ohmy: this is the definition "an amusing, energetic and often sexual entertainment or situation"

iowabelle 12-09-2006 07:30 PM

Does anyone else know... I think that Tigger was also a gift from Camilla to Charles. (I've read so much stuff over the last 20+ years it all runs together!)

I was suspicious when it comes to this particular biography. It just repeates a lot of things from other publications and some of the translations are really awful. To me it has made the impression of a copy and not in the best of ways. I wouldn't consider her as an expert. But maybe the story you are referring to is indeed true.

I totally agree that the biograghy of Tatjana Gräfin Dönhoff is not the best one, some parts are awful, like the stories she writes in fiction...(sad for the first Camilla biographie of a german author...maybe i should write a better one :lol: )
But i´m interested in the story of the pony and i want to know if it is true.
I don´t know the translation for the word Rompy before but Skydragon convinced me that Camilla wouldn´t choose a name like this one.
So maybe the story about the pony is only bad fiction too...:mad:

I miss Tigger, or Tigga. He was such a cutie walking along with his master, the Prince of Wales.

HRH Kimetha 05-13-2007 11:39 AM

Being somewhat a cat lover myself, it appears that the Wales and many of the royal family members take only a shining to the dog. Am I wrong that there isn't any prominent member that like cats as well as dogs? I have both, as well as a few rats, guinea pig, dogs and a horse that I tend to and get a lot of enjoyment out of. How about the RF (sorry a little off topic for the Wales, but please include the RF and the Wales).

ALSO, remember that cats are usually indoor pets, so I bet many members of the family have cats that are not seen unless the cats are included in an informal portrait sitting for a magazine. You can't exactly get a pic of any of them walking their cats around. ;)

I wonder if "Wales family pets" can include the many pets Diana had when she was growing up. She had a ginger cat called Marmalade. She had a prize-winning pet called Peanuts, but I forgot what Peanuts was: hamster or guinea pig?
Remember the rabbits that William and Harry had in the Patrick Demarchelier black-and-white portraits? Does anyone know about those bunnies, like names and how long the boys had them?

Elspeth 05-13-2007 09:05 PM

Pretty sure Peanuts was a guinea pig. Don't ask what colour, though!

iowabelle 05-16-2007 05:52 PM

I'm pretty sure Peanuts was a guinea pig, too.

I think Princess Michael adores cats, especially Burmese and Siamese.

Lovelydiana 06-25-2007 12:57 PM

Yeah "peanuts" was a guinea pig and she also had a pony that she had when she was with her mom. There is a photo of her with him I can't remeber his name though.

Oh yeah that Shetland pony. I don't remember the name either. Do you know what horse it was that Diana fell off when she was little, about six I think?

Skydragon 06-25-2007 04:31 PM

Apparently she fell off the pony and didn't ride again until her Hewitt days!

Oh, I thought the Princess of Wales fell off a horse not a pony. Anyway has Charles gotten another dog after Tigger died?

CasiraghiTrio 06-25-2007 09:24 PM

Other than the little dog Camilla was walking last November, I don't know of any dogs she or Charles has, although I believe Camilla has two or three as mentioned already. For Charles specifically, I don't know.
Here are some old pics of Wales Family Pets I found on Rex. All show Prince Harry with a black Lab, in 1997 and 2003, in the 1997 pics you can see Tigger in some. I suppose the dog in 1997 was Widgeon? Maybe it's Widgeon in 2003 too, but I doubt it because the dog looks too young.

Do they only have Jack Russells? Why do I have it in my head that BRF were also big Labrador people (as well as the royal corgis) or is that only for field trials? I know QEII used to (maybe still) do hunting/retriever trials wih her Labs. Perhaps i am just prejudiced, as we have the girliest black Labrador ever! :-) Almost 11!

sirhon11234 06-25-2007 09:56 PM

Oh my! 11 year old Lab! Wow, I hope mine will live so long. He is five now and doing very well and I am hoping to have him forever, honestly, I can't imagine my life without him. I have pics of him on my web site. My Scout, he's the best. Honestly, scooter, the only breeds of dogs I have ever known about Prince Charles or his wives having:

Prince Charles: Labradors, Jack Russells
Camilla: Jack Russells
diana: When she was a girl, her family always had keeshonds.

I haven't heard of any royal except the Queen, Queen Mother, and Princess Margaret having Corgis.
Even Anne never had Corgis that I know about. I've seen Anne and family with a few breeds, mostly terrier like dogs, bulldogs, Labradors, but no corgis that I've ever seen. Corgis are so precious, though, I like that breed too.

What about polo ponies?
I haven't counted for Charles ever, but for William I've counted four different ones. He only seems to have the same four he uses for every match, which I gather is standard for all serious polo players. They rotate them to give them rest.
Harry has at least three, maybe four as well.

iowabelle 06-25-2007 10:30 PM

Princess Anne has a liking for what we in the U.S. call pitbull terriers, or just pitbulls. Anne had a problem with one in the past few years, that bit a youngster and Anne got a citation for it. And I believe Anne had a pitbull that mortally injured one of HM's corgis.

iowabelle 06-25-2007 10:32 PM

Prince Charles had Harvey while he was courting Diana. After the marriage, allegedly she made him give up Harvey. (Sorry, no love interests will come between me and my pets, who all happen to be cats right now!)

Now that would be just wrong if true, because I would never give up a dog for a love interest. I hear you on that one, iowabelle. Somehow I find that one difficult to swallow. Anyone having so much power over someone as to "make" them get rid of a dog.... I don't want to know such a person that would ask, let alone the person that would cave!:ermm: Unless they had a very good reason, like the dog was harmful or threatening in some way, but I would never have a dog like that, so as I say, I can't imagine!
But about Anne's dogs, I remember when that happened. It was so horrible. I can't imagine going through something like that.

iowabelle 06-25-2007 10:48 PM

Anne's dog seemed to be unruly. And that's unusual because I think she's very much in command of her animals. (And, oh, wouldn't that have been awful to have your dog kill your mother The Queen's pet? Yikes. Anne could have been sent to the Tower!)

And when I heard about Diana "making" Charles give up Harvey, I couldn't imagine that he would have been so spineless, IF he truly liked the dog. After all, it was a hunting dog and how much time would Diana have had to spend with it? I always thought there was more to this story than got into the books and magazines.

You're right about it being unusual, period, about Anne's dog. But I read in Pimlott's book that apparently one of the Queen's dogs attacked and killed one of the Queen Mother's dogs in the 1950s. I gave this a lot of thought when I first read it because of course I connected it to what happened with Anne's dog. It is puzzling. But I think this can happen to dogs that grow up in large packs, which always seems to be the case with the royal dogs, they can become extremely territorial and aggressive, can't they?
It seems to make sense because Charles has tended to have just one or two dogs, not large packs, and he hasn't had any problems like that.

About the Diana and Harvey story, I agree there is more to it. It doesn't make sense that she would just ask for no reason, even less sense that he would cave into her "demand". I know for myself, I am very attached to my pets, even closer to them maybe to any humans (in certain respects, because the inhibitions just disappear with animals, the relationship is so pure) and I cannot imagine ever giving up a pet for a husband or boyfriend.

I understood Diana found him to be a little boisterous and threatening, Harvey that is. Any dog will 'try it on' with what it sees as an intruder on it's territory and not every person is an animal lover, willing to put up with a few muddy pawprints. :pawprint:
Charles rehomed Harvey to ease the tensions with his new wife, IMO. He would have been better keeping Harvey as it turned out!

sirhon11234 06-26-2007 10:59 AM

The royals that live in Bukingham Palace, Kensington Palace,etc etc, are they allowed to keep dogs in the residences or do they keep the dogs on their country estates.

Well, that was just silly of Diana. I think she was ok with dogs, though, having grown up around animals in the country and her family always had them running around. I guess it was just another thing Diana could try to control when she was at her lowest ebb. I don't mean that as harshly as it sounds. I only mean that when she was at her most insecure, a newbie in the royal family and all that, on top of the marital problems, I think she was a bit of a control freak trying to make things ok (control freak symptons are classic in sufferers of bulimia, it's part of the disease, to be desperate to make things perfect). It's so sad. Horrible disease that wreaks havoc on the sufferers and everyone around them.

How cute is that?! :rofl: So this happened just once? All four of the Dorgis are from the same, erm, "misbehavior"?
One of the funniest, cutest things involving royal pets was in the movie "The Queen", when she would snap her fingers and point at them, "stay!" and they would just sit there like soldiers! I think they are really regimental like that too, because I remember in the 1990s documentary the BBC did on the Queen, they would follow her around in single file! :biggrin:

I think now all that is left on the Dorgi subject is to share some pictures! We don't have any visuals with this new knowledge? ;)

I have this old pic of Prince Charles with Lady Jane Wellesley walking Harvey around, or I assume he's Harvey. It is amazing to me how much Harvey looks like my own lab. They could be twins except for their noses are different and mine is slightly, ahem, "chubbier"! :blush:
The original source for the picture is Camera Press/Anthony Holden, Charles at Fifty.

HM also breeds and trains Labradors and Spaniels as gun dogs.

CasiraghiTrio 06-26-2007 08:09 PM

I thought it was just Labs that are gun dogs, didn't know about Spaniels being bred for that too. All the royal gun dogs are bred and trained at Sandringham aren't they? I've read that the Queen's dog-breeding is actually very sparring, as she is very wary about over-breeding. I hope so because over-breeding causes problems. It can seriously affect the health of the pups.

Skydragon 06-27-2007 06:34 AM

Gun Dogs
 
Brittany, English Setter, German Pointer (Long and wire haired), Gordon Setter, Vizsla, Irish Setter, Kooikerhondje, Labrador, Munsterlander, Poodle, Retriever (various coats) American Cocker Spaniel, Spaniel, (English Springer, Irish water, Cocker, Clumber, Sussex, Welsh Springer), Spanish Water dog, Weimaraner - to name a few! :lol:

Yes the breeding and training is done at Sandringham and I'm sure like any good breeder, HM is very careful of bloodlines and not to overbreed her dogs or horses.

I see what happened with Harvey as an early symptom of the problems with this couple. And I guess banishment was HRH's attempt to please Diana.

I guess I'm more of a Camilla in this aspect. A few muddy pawprints wouldn't annoy me, and I'm not very intimidated by large dogs (small dogs are a different matter! The worst bite I ever got was from a miniature Yorkie!).

I guess I'm more of a Camilla in this aspect. A few muddy pawprints wouldn't annoy me, and I'm not very intimidated by large dogs (small dogs are a different matter! The worst bite I ever got was from a miniature Yorkie!).

I have to agree, iowabelle! Big dogs are the sweetest ones! It's the little ones you must watch out for! :lol: Big dogs like mine (he weighs 95 lbs!) think they are tiny lap dogs, like they just want to crawl up and cuddle and be so sweet! I just adore them, and I can't imagine (much as love Diana) anyone not just loving them.

Camilla visited today Bristol University´s School of Veterinary Science, there she told that she just had lost one of her dogs:
From the PoW website:
´Sadly she had just lost a Jack Russell terrier which was 21 years old´

How sad, was it Tosca?

No, it was Freddie, I believe. :verysad:

I agree with Skydragon. I think it was Freddie too. I know Camilla had Freddie
in 1992 and Tosca, Freddie's daughter, the dog she originally bred for Charles? I think that happened in the mid 90's.

I always suspected that Freddie was a favorite of Camilla's

Wasn´t the dog a present from Charles to her? And if the dog was 21 it had to be born in 1986. I think Tosca was the older one but, I´m not sure.

It was Freddie. I am pretty sure because Tom said Freddie was very old and blind in his last book. Freddie was Camilla's favourtite. Freddie was died at 21 year old. That's long! It's sad.

Tosca was bred for Charles, Charles then gave her back to Camilla as the dog was a little anti social with other dogs, (which Camilla managed to train out of her, to some extent). Tosca is I believe one of the pup's Freddie sired.

Camilla's daughter had a dog, i know becasue a friend of mine met her daughter and got to stroke it, don;t know what type but it was a larger dog, like a retriever size not a a jack russel like her mother.

Jack Russels are tremendous balls of energy. My mom's Jack is older now, so she's not as crazy.

I imagine that having cats around large dogs that are bred and trained to hunt little furry things would make it unsafe for the Wales' and Princess Anne to own them. I have a cat and a dog, but they are about the same size, plus my dog is a chicken! :rofl:

A portrait of one of the dogs of the PoW
 
Found by coincidence the bright and colorful portrait of one of the dogs of the PoW made by Shunyam:

Shunyam

The site shows the picture plus it includes a Thank you letter from St. James Palace. BTW I like the paintings of Shunyam. Modern and bright. The dogs are brilliant.

Cheers :)

First time going through the thread, so forgive me bringing this up out of the void, but...

I've read in a few books the reason why Harvey had to go was because he was going to the bathroom in the house, and no matter what was tried, Harvey couldn't be broken of the habit. Due to that, he was sent to the kennels at Sandringham where he could be outdoors the majority of the time and be happy too.

I of course could be wrong about all of that, but I clearly remember reading that in more than one book over the years.
