Several famous people have owned corgis over the years. They are cute and perky dogs, and some of the most well-known dog lovers in the world have owned them.
This post looks at some of these famous owners and a few esteemed Corgis.
Holly - Queen Elizabeth II
The deceased monarch of England, Queen Elizabeth II, has a long-standing affection for corgis. At seven years old, King George VI presented his daughter with her first Corgi, Dookie. Many Pembroke Welsh Corgis and Dorgis (a hybrid of Corgi and Dachshund) have been added to the royal family's collection. She regularly leads their walks and even oversaw a corgi breeding initiative at Windsor Castle. The Queen, who is now 90 years old, has loved and lost several corgis during her life. Her beloved Holly, who had performed in the opening video for the 2012 London Olympics, kicked the bucket in early October. Holly is interred in Balmoral Castle, the Scottish estate of the Royal Family.
Ralph was born in the middle of the summer of 2013 and currently resides in Northern California with his human family. Ralph's sweetness, infectious enthusiasm, and 238,000 Instagram followers attest to his universal appeal. However, Ralph's Instagram consists of more than just adorable puppy images. The narrative follows the progression of a human family as viewed from the perspective of the family dog, a corgi. Ralph lives with his parents, their toddler son (also known as Ralph's brother), and their infant daughter. If Ralph and George are your two favorite characters, you may get an annual wall calendar featuring sporting Santa hats, colorful hats, and bunny ears.
Early in the new millennium, the Adult Swim TV program featured Ein, the corgi from the adored anime Cowboy Bebop. The hyper-intelligent corgi in Cowboy Bebop is said to be a data dog, a lab animal with enhanced cognitive abilities thanks to genetic modification. In 2071, Ein's human bounty hunter masters take him on a journey through space on a starship. While Ein seems like any other dog at first glance, his owners are often taken aback when they discover his hidden talent for hacking.
Molly, "The Evil Thing" - Steven King
Molly, the corgi that Stephen King dubbed "The Thing of Evil" in jest, has gone viral after King shared stories on social media about her penchant for snack theft and soccer ball destruction. In the 1990s, King owned a corgi named Marlowe, so this isn't his first time writing about the breed in his fiction. He has even included corgis in works, like Horace in Under the Dome.
Rufus is perhaps the most recognizable startup dog or mascot. Rufus, born in 1994 in California, served as the first-ever mascot for Amazon.com. Rufus was a dog owned by one of the first engineers at a major online retailer. He was a regular at company meetings and enjoyed chasing tennis balls around the workplace. Rufus passed away in 2009, but his legacy lives on in Amazon's dog-friendly corporate culture. Dogs are allowed at Amazon, so it's no surprise that the company's Instagram is filled with pictures of happy dogs. In fact, the corporation is so dedicated to the dog that it gave the dog's name to one of its Seattle office buildings.
Today, Corgis are some of the most fashionable dogs you will see. But regardless of their owners' fame or notoriety, they have often provided laughs, entertainment, and good in the world of dog lovers.
