Queen Elizabeth He died at the age of 96 and left behind a legacy spanning decades as Britain’s longest-reigning monarch. She is survived by her four children, eight grandchildren, and 12 great-grandchildren. She also leaves behind her adorable four-legged friends. As she famously said, “Klapji is family.”
The Queen is believed to have had four puppies at the time of her death: two Pembroke Welsh Corgis, a Dorje (Corgi-Dachshund mix), and a Cocker Spaniel named Lissy. Lissy joined the family in January 2022.
The Queen had more than 30 dogs during her reign, descended from the first dog named Susan, which she received as a gift on her 18th birthday. according to Reader’s Digest, The Queen preferred the Corgi over other breeds because of her “energy and unbridled spirit”.
I took a hands-on approach to feeding and caring for them and took them on regular walks. She reportedly decided to stop breeding Corgi dogs in 2015 so that no one would be left behind upon her death, but she received two gifts from her son Andrew following the death of her husband, Prince Philip. She is also credited with creating the Dorgi after raising one of her dogs with Princess Margaret daschund Pipkin.
Now that the Queen is dead, her adorable little ones will have to find new homes. Royal biographer Ingrid Seward said: NEWSWEEK“I imagine the dogs would be taken care of by the family, perhaps Andrew [as] He’s the one who gave it to her, they’re too small, a corgi and a Dorji.”
Seward explained, “She loves animals and she absolutely adores dogs. She’s always done that, they were her first love and they would be her last.”
The royal family has not made an official statement on what will happen to Queen Elizabeth’s dogs, but it is safe to assume that they will be in good hands.
