Famous Corgis Include:
1. the Queens dogs. These are without a doubt the most well-known corgis in the world. Often, the corgi (particularly the Pembroke Welsh Corgi) is known as the Queen's dog. The Queen has three Corgis – Linnet, Holly, Willow. She also has three Dorgis (cross-breed of Dachshund and Corgi) Cider, Candy, Vulcan. Her fourth corgi, Monty, sadly passed away recently.
2. Rufus. The original mascot of Amazon.com. Born in 1994, Rufus came to work with his human, who happened to be Amazon's editor-in-chief and principal engineer. He was loved and spoiled by everybody in the office, and was the reason for the dog-friendly atmosphere at Amazon.com.
3. Ein. From the animated TV show Cowboy Bebop. Ein is a Pembroke Welsh Corgi whose intelligence was greatly enhanced by a research facility. Ein is known as a "data dog." What exactly was done to increase his intelligence is unknown.
4. Baxter. The host of this site, author of two books, featured in two others, and lobbying to be the new mascot of Amazon.com.
5. Tupac Shacorgi. Internet sensation.
6. Corgi gang in Fallout 3 New Vegas. This was a mod for the PC version of the game by a guy named Nivea, who apparently owned a corgi... impressive and a must-have for a corgi lover!
