Welcome to Mumpy's new puppy 'Maya'

Gimpy Mumpy has a lovely new companion puppy 'Maya' and to welcome Maya to our world, I have found some pictures of her Royal Cousins.

Mumpy - here is a picture of another Mum with one of her Pembrokeshire Corgis

Courtesy of this bbc website I discovered that from fighting alongside fairies to following Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the Pembrokeshire corgis have come along way since their Viking days. Despite their size these tough little dogs were developed to handle cattle. (I believe they are quite happy to play with balls these days.) More lyrical tales suggest that they were used to pull fairy carriages and that they were used as war horses ridden on by fairy warriors and that the marks of those mythical saddles are still on their shoulders

In their retirement from fighting with the fairies, they are sometimes taken up to London by their companions to visit the Queen.

Sometimes bouquets of flowers are given to the Queen by her Subjects, and she always arranges for them to be taken home to Buck House to decorate the Royal Corgi's apartments.

Often the Royal Corgis accompany Her Majesty as she travels about Her Kingdom. Royal Airplanes are a little more challenging than Royal Carriages but the doughty little corgis show their bravery descending the precipitous step ladder.

My best wishes to Maya and Mumpy for a long and joyful companionship.

Thank you so much Sally! Maya was so brave at her veterinary appointment Friday that I can truly envision her carrying a fairie army on to victory! When Mr. M asked her (a 12-week old puppy) to sit amidst an exciting lobby of new people and animals of all varieties *and she sat* the staff were *very* impressed. The Queen herself would have been pleased :)

I loved your post, it brought a smile to my day.
