Last Of The Queen's Corgis Dies

Queen Elizabeth II of England (and other places) has been known for her love of corgis. However, with the death of 14-year-old Willow, she has lost her last corgi. This is the first time since 1936 that she does not have a corgi around. Willow was put to sleep at the Windsor Castle due to cancer-related issues.

She was of the 14th generation of corgis that the Queen bred ever since receiving her first one, named Susan, as her 18th birthday present. In 2009, the monarch announced that she would stop breeding corgis - she had seven at the time. Her stated reason was that she didn't “want to leave any behind,” . The queen is still accompanied by two corgi-dachshund mixes, named Vulcan and Candy, and we can still enjoy some wonderful pictures of her and her dogs.
