Queen Elizabeth II loses her last corgi, Willow, marking the end of a royal dog dynasty | The Star
Never easy to lose a pet. Getting a little weepy even typing that sentence. Reports from the palace say Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II is absolutely gutted by the loss of her beloved corgi Willow, the last in a royal line of loyal, nippy dogs who have kept the monarch company during her entire reign. The Daily Mail’s correspondent says the 91-year-old queen was hit “extremely hard” by the death of good ol’ Willow, 14, who died on Sunday — was put down, actually — after suffering a bout of cancer.
