Yes, Svensk Damtidning told in September, that king Carl Gustaf and queen Silvia had been looking for another dog for some time. They have had the 12-year old Slovensky kopov/Slovakian hound Zila.
In the beginning of September they finally got a new dog. Brandie, a Bavarian mountain scenthound, was born on 6th June, the national day of Sweden.

This is a quite interesting thread as I have heard very rarely about royals and cats...?! Royals have always been very much into dogs (which I sympathize with, indeed!)!

Yes, that's what I had written expect worded differently. I have seen a few portraits of Mary I, but I don't think I have seen multiple ones of her with her Italian Greyhounds. The only one I've seen is the mentioned one of her and Philip II, but I could be missing something here.

I remember reading a while ago that Princess Michael's cat had gone missing, and that she had asked her neighbours at Kensington Palace if they had seen it. From what I remember, I do believe the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge helped her look for her cat, but IIRC their search wasn't successful. I wonder if Princess Michael has her cat back now.

If it was the 2012 cat-disappearance
Princess Michael of Kent's Cat Has Been Found

But indeed there still seem to be few royal cats about

In the early years of their marriage Philippe and Mathilde had a dog named "Kinga" who lived with them at Laeken. I am not clear on whether Kinga was originally Philippe's pet ,or if he was acquired by the Royal couple after they married.

Afaik Kinga was a small puppy when then Princess Mathilde was pregnant with her oldest child (there are some articles on the internet about how they were a little concerned how the pup would deal with the new baby), but they might have had another dog before that, possibly Laika?

eta: they indeed had a dog named Laika, but unfortunately that strangled itself with it's leash when Philippe and Mathilde were on holiday...
(they got him together, i think that was the original question)

In the recent video's of the family they have a dog too, but it's only a "dog-sitting". But the kids looks very attached to the dog, so maybe they'll consider having another one?

Google Translate can't pick up the URL to translate to english, but basically, when the princely couple were on christmas vacation in 2000/2001, Laika stayed at home (where obviously there was staf to look after the dog; you can also find articles on internet which imply that Philippe and Mathilde just abandoned him, but that's not the case).
One of the staff members had tied the dog's leash to a doorknob for a only short while, and Laika got tangled up in the leash and unfortunately chocked...

Ziggy looks like a very lively, and friendly dog. Is he/she a collie?

After King Edward VII's demise, his dog Caesar would not go near Queen Alexandra. Alexandra had taken a strong dislike to Caesar. The Queen was furious when a publisher issued a memoir of Edward VII, with Caesar's picture on the cover, entitled, "Where's Master?"
