All through December Madame Tussauds in London had dressed the Queen, Prince Philip, Prince Charles, Camilla, Prince William, Princess Kate, and Prince Harry, as well as the Corgis in rather fancy Christmas sweaters.
The royal family had given permission for the exhibit as part of the Save the Children's Christmas Jumper Day campaign on December 16, which provides everything from education to clean water for children around the world.
Needless to say that the waxen royal family was a great success among the public.

19.10.2016 - Concern about California's First Dog
Sutter Brown, the 13 year old Corgi of Jerry Brown, Governor of California, and his wife Anne Gust Brown, has fallen critically ill with cancer. Sutter has been a very important part of the Brown's family since 2010, as well as the governor's office family. He has since become one of the most popular figures in California politics.
Sutter's health began to quickly deteriorate on Friday, 14 October, and he underwent emergency surgery shortly thereafter. While Sutter pulled through surgery, the vets were not able to remove all of the cancer and his condition remains critical.
However, according to a tweet from Anne Gust Brown in the evening of 17 October, Sutter came home and "rolled in the grass, sniffed all his favorite places and then passed out (fell asleep)".

20.03.2016 - Pembroke Welsh Corgi no longer at risk in Great Britain
Official pedigree dog figures show that the Pembroke Welsh corgi experienced such a boom last year that the breed is no longer at risk.
The number of Pembroke Welsh corgis had dropped so low in recent years that the Kennel Club feared they were in danger of dying out in its country of origin. Two years ago there were only 274 Pembroke Welsh corgis registered with the Kennel Club but numbers increased by more than a third in 2015 so it is no longer classed as a vulnerable native breed. Instead, it will be on the club's Watch List, which monitors breeds with less than 450 new puppies.
The Cardigan Welsh corgi, on the other hand, with only 124 registrations is still at risk in its country of origin, whereas in the Scandinavian countries the breed is much more popular than the Pembroke.

Love at first cuddle...
A puppy should not be bought on an impulse but after careful consideration. To make the public aware of this, the Danish Kennel Club arranged a happening with TV coverage at Copenhagen Central Station on 14 October 2015. X-pens were set out on turf where the puppies of various breeds could play and rest. The event attracted wide interest among passers-by. Adults and children were allowed to pet or cuddle the puppies while the breeders and DKK representatives answered questions and gave advice. The two station policemen were so charmed by the Pembroke puppy that one day you might see a Corgi herd demonstrators and criminals!
