Interesting Animal - The Corgi

The Queen's favourite breed of dog, the Pembroke Welsh corgi, is becoming endangered in the UK.

(The corgi, often seen in photos of the British monarch, has seen its popularity wane in recent years with dog lovers instead favouring the smaller, more fashionable easy-to-carry breeds like chihuahuas.

It has been placed on the Kennel Club's 'At Watch' list, and will be considered officially endangered if the number of puppy registrations in a year drops below 300 - there were 301 registered.

Save the corgi!)


Update - The Welsh corgi (as it is known in the US) is actually the 24th most popular dog breed in America, according to the American Kennel Club.
