The Queen’s corgis will feel the loss of Her Majesty and may even show signs of depression after her death, says dog expert


The Queen’s beloved corgis will feel the loss of the monarch and may even display signs of depression after his death, according to a canine expert.

John Smith, dog expert and founder of pet customization product website Yappy, says that even though dogs don’t understand the concept of death, dogs can still feel the loss of their owner.

Although dogs don’t mourn the death like humans do, they can experience feelings of loss and emotional despair that can be seen in abandoned dogs, according to the expert.

“These feelings can lend themselves to common and often devastating symptoms, such as whining, pacing, howling, loss of appetite, restlessness, interrupted sleep patterns, anxiety and lethargy” , said Mr. Smith.

“Corgis won’t fully understand the magnitude of the Queen’s death, but they are very intuitive and will understand the emotion of missing someone who is no longer there,” he explained.

“Just like humans, some dogs can become depressed.”

It was announced that the Duke of York and Sarah, Duchess of York were to look after the Queen’s beloved corgis, Muick and Sandy, who even made an appearance at the Quadrangle of Windsor Castle during her funeral Monday.

Mr Smith recommended implementing a routine similar to the one they were in with the Queen, as it gives them a sense of familiarity ‘at a time when everything around them is uncertain’ and giving them attention extra and to distract them as much as possible with walks, games or cuddles.

He added: “Due to their independent nature, it may take them some time to adjust to their new life with Prince Andrew.

“It will be a very unsettling time for corgis, and they may become anxious and find it difficult to trust those around them.

“However, while they can be a bit territorial at home, they will eventually feel comfortable in their new surroundings.”
