The Queen's Dogs
 
I can't remember if anyone ever posted anything about the Queen's love of her Corgi's. I know that this love of hers has gone back at least 60 yrs or so since she received her first corgi as a present from her parents. Does anyone know how many she has now? As well I have read that she keeps and trains other breeds too.

She breeds labradors as working gun dogs, but the corgis are pets. I'm not sure how many corgis there are at present, but it seems to be somewhere around four or five, give or take.

Here you go Kelly:
How many corgis does The Queen have and what are their names?
The Queen currently owns five corgis and four dorgis, a corgi-dachshund crossbreed.

The corgis are called Emma, Linnet, Monty, Holly and Willow. The dorgis are called Cider, Berry, Candy and Vulcan

Those names are so cute!:D
I heard she 'inherited' her mother's dogs, so some of those may have belonged to the Queen Mother.

Thanks for the answer to my question QE2 I appreciate it. You really can see how much all of the royal love their dogs. I love their names too.:)

I believe that the dorgi's came about when one of the Queen's corgis and one of Princess Margaret's dauschunds (sp) had some fun and a litter resulted!!!

Just Adorable!
 
The Corgi's are just adorable, they are just some of the cutest dogs I have ever seen!

Queen Lillybeth(Elizabeth)II, also has a passion for horses.
This is a picture of Princess Lillybeth on her pony.

The names for her dogs are really cute!

For my own, I rather admire Her Majesty's specailly bred, glorious, Labradors.

I met some, once, when staying close to Sandringham. They are truly lovely, elegant, intelligent, and superbly bred dogs. One black beauty, in particular, I would have loved to have scooped up and smuggled back into Australia.

The Corgis are, of course, HM closest and much-valued companions, but her Sandringham Labradors run a close second, and are instrumental and adored in Sandringham's royal pursuits and affection.

I have always heard that corgi dogs are ankle nippers and occasionally apologies have to be sent out because of this.
They are Royal dogs so what can commoners expect? I too love to see the dogs running everywhere in documentaries. There was a film (one of the first ever made) very short with Queen Victoria and some of her very large family outnumbered by dogs which were also running everywhere.

Corgi mated with Dachshund. introduced by HM when one of her corgis was mated with a dachshund belonging to her sister, Princess Margaret.:flowers: They are fun dogs as opposed to the gun dogs and terriers she also breeds.

Adorable! Such s sweet little one. Love these huge ears. Thank you so much, Skydragon, for your quick help and in particular for the link.

Corgis nip at one's heels because they're herding dogs and that's one way they have of telling cattle or sheep to hurry it up. It's instinctual with them.

Or when they are badly trained pets. :biggrin:

The Queen has nearly as many dogs as my mum owns ( breeds and shows english cocker spaniels). I like the names of the dogs a good variety of names.
