Yes, pets are so much part of our and our families' lives that their going leaves a terrible gap. If only they could live thirty years longer!

As far as the Queen is concerned, once Candy dies, that's the end of a long corgi/dorgi dynasty that has been around since the 1930s.

Painful loss for the queen. Her dogs have been such a huge part of her life, and her family's. It has to be hard to have only one left now.

Not a good Christmas season dog wise for the royal family.

According to some exclusives from Daily Mail and The Sun, The Queen has got two new corgi puppies. This comes after the death of Vulcan, her dorgi (Pembroke Welsh Corgi and Dachshund crossbreed), last year. Candy (dorgi) will now have two new dog companions!

Nothing warms the heart better than puppy breath and feathery kisses and tails that wag 1000 times a minute. Dogs are the perfect example of unconditional love there can be.

That's so nice, especially for such a lifelong dog-lover. They will undoubtedly do much cheering up.

I am surprised. I thought she said she wasn't getting new dogs any more at her age. But its happy news.

Glad she will have some new fluffy companions. Dogs are such a joy to her

And of course the DM spins a happy story about new puppies into drama

^^^^^ She did state she wouldn't get any more but I think she failed to realise how lonely and depressed Candy would be having spent her life with 'family' and how shut in she and Philip have been this last year and now, with Philip in hospital she only had a a depressed dorgie to talk to.

No loves and cuddles from her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Not even meeting them . Something had to be done . . . .and another dog was called for and, what's better than a puppy than two puppies for she and Candy to shake their heads together over the outrageous antics of the puppies.

I wonder who convinced her to accept the gift? (We have a mystery Queen whisperer) and how wonderful is that. As for the rags, the only thing they got really right was 'the Queen without Corgies is like the Tower of London without Ravens.
Happy woofs, wags and puppy mayhem your Majesty. May you enjoy every wet nose and doggie kiss.

Perfect company for the queen at Windsor and almost strange to think of the queen not having dogs.

The loch is the site of Queen Victoria's hideaway Glas-allt Shield .

If the picture of HM and now Prince Philip and the last doggie being driven madly insane by the relatively mannerless Fergus and Muick who, unaware of their elevated royal status, doesn't make you laugh I don't know what will.

It's been a lonely and depressing0 2020 and 2021 looks to be much the same. Think of the millions of people around the world seeing HM taking and getting so much puppy love and joy spending time within their own Covid-19 bubble.

Puppies epitomise the endorphins that which lighten our hearts and , after all, laughter is the very best mood enhancer and it's nice to know our BRF are showing that just like any other multi-generational family, it seems their seniors are showing how to get get a kick out of life rather than letting life kick them in the a**.

This isn't about dogs but cats and I thought it was quite sweet.

The Dean of Canterbury briefly spoke this morning of when the Queen visited Canterbury cathedral five years ago to unveil statues. They were having lunch and she suddenly spotted one of his cats scratching the floor and was told that he normally sat on a chair when meals were served but was put out today because he wasn't allowed whilst she was there. She apparently then insisted Monkey be given his usual place and a chair was brought for him to join in the lunch next to her.
