Queen Elizabeth II is the longest-serving monarch in the UK, as well as the longest female monarch in the world. The queen has a lifelong passion for dog. The Queen’s family raised the Corgi for the first time When she was 7 years old, her father, George VI, who was later crowned king, took home a Corgi dog called Dookie. That year the Queen’s sister Margaret was only 3 years old. On the 18th birthday, the Queen had the first Corgi dog in her life and named it Susan. Since then, Susan has become a close friend of Elizabeth. Even when she is on her honeymoon, the Queen takes it with her.

There are hundreds of descendants of Susan, and the Queen had only chosen more than 30 of them to accompany her. The Queen would never sell the rest of them, but give to friends and family as a gift.

These Corgi dogs are lucky. As one of the “royal members”, they enjoyed the most prestigious “royal treatment”. According to the British "Daily Mail", all the dogs the Queen had raised are very obedient. When they eat, they will find their seats by themselves, and sit down next to the Queen and enjoy their "customized" dinner.
The animal psychologists specially equipped by the royal family revealed that the Queen's dog's daily recipes are tailor-made, and even natural herbs are included in the dishes. The dog's food is served in a silver or porcelain container. The Queen will even feed and domesticate them personally. Especially in the winter, the Queen always pays special attention to keeping dogs warm and caring them considerately.
The Queen will maintains the indoor temperature comfortable for her corgis and also keep indoor ventilation when there is sun.
In addition, the queen will prepare a warm and comfortable bed and a soft blanket for each dog, to prevent the dogs from catching cold or sneeze like human in the cold winter night.
Whenever there is a chance, the Queen often take her dogs out to enjoy the sun and take a walk.
Before going out, the Queen will personally choose the suitable cold-proof coat for each dog to prevent them from getting cold.
Under the care of the Queen, this Corgi dogs lived a long and happy time. The last corgis (Willow) died at Windsor castle on April 15, nearly 15 years old, putting an end for the more than 80 years of deep love between the Queen and the Corgi dogs. The death of Willow made the Queen extremely sad, because Willow is the last link between her and her parents, and even her childhood.
One of the Queen’s counselors said, “The Queen doesn’t want a young Corgi dog because she doesn’t want to leave it after she passing away.”
Although there is no Corgi dog now, there are two dogs staying with the Queen, which are hybrids of Corgi and Dachshund. They will continue to accompany the Queen.
