Early in the last century a young Princess named Elizabeth became enamored by a short legged, large eared, fox faced dog called a Pembroke Welsh Corgi. Corgi for short. Over sixty years and many dogs later, the Queen of England has become the world’s most famous Corgi owner. The Queen has owned more than thirty Corgis in her lifetime, including Susan, who was a gift for her eighteenth birthday in 1944. A good proportion of her dogs have been direct descendants from Susan. Her Majesty currently has three corgis – Swift, Emma and Linnet.
Famous Pemmie and Pemmie/X owners include:
Hilary Swank‘s “Karoo”
Jennifer Aniston‘s “Norman”
Stephen King‘s “Marlow” (Corgis have also starred in Mr. King’s books; “Horace” in Under the Dome and “Daisy” in The Regulators)
Kendra Wilkinson‘s “Rascal”
