The Queen’s well documented adoration of dogs started from a young age. She was given her first dog at the age of three by her uncle, the Prince of Wales. At the age of 18 she was given her first corgi 'Susan' as a birthday present. The Queen’s three current Pembroke Welsh corgis ~ Monty, Holly and Willow ~ are all descended from Susan. She also has three ‘dorgis’ ~ Cider, Candy and Vulcan ~ a cross-breed resulting from an unplanned liaison between a corgi and Princess Margaret’s dachshund Pipkin! Naughty naughty!
