The Queen and her Corgis top ten Royal Facts about the corgi breed.
1 The Corgi breed was introduced to the Royal Family in 1933 by The Queen’s father, King George VI, when he bought a Corgi called Dookie from a local kennels. There are two types of Corgi, The Pembroke and the Cardigan. The word corgi is from Cor, Welsh for dwarf (although some suspect it may have been originally "cur" for working) and gi is for dog. Despite this, the dog doesn't speak a lick of Welsh. You'll have to learn that on your own
10 She carries good luck charms from her children in her bag, including miniature corgi dogs and horses and family photos. Top secret files have revealed that also in her bag are a packet of Shmackos , three pigs ears , some poop pick up bag and a bottle of Kennel Nos 5. The Corgi’s favourite meal is a well known secret but I will tell it to you now, it’s anything on your plate.
Happy Diamond Jubilee Everybody!
PS. I have just received word from Buck House , that Maj and Monty , Holly and Willow would like to thank her supporters that have made this the most popular post to date. Her Maj further informed us that she would like her dear pop pickers to keep her at number one in her jubilee year. Can we do that folks?
On her behalf we thank you all, Maj and Co!
