Vulcan, The Queen’s Dog, Loyally Served The Queen Until The End
One of the hardest things a fur parent can face is losing a fur baby. No matter who we may be, whether rich or poor, the pain of losing a loved one is not manageable. The queen of England, Queen Elizabeth, knows this feeling all too well.
Vulcan and Candy, the queen’s two adorable pups, have stayed by the queen’s side for many years. However, just before Christmas, Vulcan, who had been with the queen for about 13 years, passed away. His death caused the queen great sadness.
Though the queen is an avid dog lover, she particularly adores corgis. The queen’s first corgi, Susan, was given to her as a gift on her 18th birthday. At that time, she was still a princess. From then on, the queen has owned 30 corgis! Vulcan and Candy came along when one of the queen’s beloved corgis mated with a dachshund pup. The Corgi breed has been with the royal family since that time.
Queen Elizabeth has many responsibilities and duties. But she makes sure to shower as much love and attention as possible to her pups. She tries her best to prepare their food herself. Sources also revealed that the queen regularly walks her dogs.
Some of her family members commented the dogs have helped the queen stay healthy and fit.
The queen decided in 2015 to stop breeding her dogs. The reason: she did not want to leave any of her pups behind.
The Vulcan’s death has left a deep pain to everyone who knew him. But, because the pup was like family, the queen will continue to have fond memories. We hope that the queen will continue to live a long and happy life with her family and beloved Candy.
