Queen Elizabeth’s dorgi Vulcan passes away

Queen Elizabeth has been left with just one pooch after her dorgi Vulcan passed away.

The British monarch is mourning the loss of Vulcan, a Pembroke Welsh Corgi and dachshund mix, who passed away at her current home in Windsor, leaving just one dorgi – called Candy – behind.

A source told The Sun newspaper of the royal family’s loss: “Clearly the loss of a loved pet is upsetting. Anyone who has owned a dog knows how sad it is to lose them.”

It comes after Darren McGrady, who worked as a chef for Buckingham Palace for 15 years, revealed that Queen Elizabeth’s corgis had their own food menu and he would be tasked with cooking for them too.

Darren said: “I didn’t expect to be cooking for the Queen’s dogs, when I started working at Buckingham Palace. I thought I was going to be cooking for kings, queens and presidents. I did eventually, but one of the first jobs I had was cooking for the corgis – the Royal Corgis – making fresh food every day. The corgis had their own menu. They sleep in like little wicker baskets in the corgi room and looked after by two footman called Doggie 1 and Doggie 2, that’s what they called them. The most important part of the meat was everything had to be cut into a fine dice … to be sure there were no bones at all in the meat. Imagine if any of the dogs were to choke on the – I’d be in real trouble.”

In 2018, Queen Elizabeth’s last corgi called Whisper passed away.

A source said at the time: “Whisper was a friendly chap and followed her everywhere. The Queen has quickly become very attached to the dog. The Fenwicks looked after their corgis like the Queen did so she knew there would be no problem if Whisper came to the Palace.

“When the dog was born it was named Wispa after the chocolate bar. The Queen thought it was a bit obscure and preferred the proper spelling.”
