The Queen's love affair with Pembroke Welsh Corgis began as a young girl in 1933 when "Dookie" was given as a birthday gift from her parents. On her 18th birthday she received a new corgi puppy she named Susan. So beloved was the Princess' pup, that Susan accompanied the newly minted Queen on her honeymoon.
Historically, the dogs dine on filet and chicken prepared by a chef and ladled with gravy by the Queen herself. Non-corgis are not allowed at Christmas (where each corgi gets their own stocking), and they have their own room at Buckingham Palace.
So... it comes as no surprise that a quiet corner of Sandringham estate in Norfolk is dedicated as the final resting place of the royal corgis. Marked by tiny headstones that read "The Faithful Companion of The Queen," Susan, Sugar, and Heather all rest. They are in good company amongst other canine members of the royal family such as black lab Sandringham Brae "a gentleman amongst dogs," and cocker spaniel Sandringham Fern, a "tireless worker and mischevious charachter.
