I adore corgis. My husband and I own a corgi (his name is Winston).
Apparently, I’m not alone.
The BBC reports people wanting to adopt corgis has increased this year and the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee is likely the reason. The Queen, of course, also adores her Pembroke corgis.
The Kennel Club said the rise in interest in corgis comes after a ”worrying decline.”
There was a 10% increase in the number of Pembroke Welsh corgi puppies registered with the club in the first three months of this year when compared with the same time last year, the BBC reported.
“Sadly dog breeds go in and out of fashion, so after a long period of worrying decline for the corgi breeds it is reassuring to see an increase in numbers,” Kennel Club secretary Caroline Kisko said. ”It is a wonderful tribute to the Queen that the popularity of her chosen breed and its cousin, the Cardigan Welsh corgi, has increased in her Diamond Jubilee year, which will have raised people’s awareness of the breeds.”
The monarchy’s website says the Queen owns three Corgis: Monty, Willow and Holly and three Dorgis: Cider, Candy and Vulcan. The dogs often travel with her to different residences and she cares for them as much as she can.
