The late Queen’s corgis, Muick and Sandy, are celebrating their second Christmas since her passing in 2022, and according to their new guardian, Sarah Ferguson, they’re doing okay.

But, this wasn’t always the case. When Sarah and her ex-husband, Prince Andrew, brought the two dogs into their home at Royal Lodge, they were clearly missing the Queen, says the Duchess.

Sarah said of Muick that his tail was down, and he only started to perk up a year later, reports The Independent.

Sarah turned to X and shared a photo of the two corgis looking up at the camera with an uplifting caption, that reads: “Always begging for treats.”

It’s not uncommon for dogs to feel depressed when losing a loved one and, lose their appetite, so the fact that they are “always begging for treats,” that’s a good sign that they are recovering from the loss.

In the photo, there’s light in their eyes and they do appear to be really happy. Or, like Sarah said in her Tweet, hungry. Either way, it seems that the Duchess has a good rapport with both dogs and she’s very caring to them.

One may ask, why Sarah? How did the corgis end up with her?

It was Prince Andrew who gifted the dogs to his mother, says People magazine, which is how they made their way back to Royal Lodge, where Andrew and Sarah live together as exes.

Just last month, Sarah talked about adopting the corgis, saying, “There are two corgis that came, big Muick and Sandy, and big Muick is very, very, very demonstrative.”

“He had his tail down to begin with and then now, a year later … he’s just beginning now to really enjoy [himself].”

Queen Elizabeth grew up with corgis, but it was when she was 18 that she received a corgi of her own, named Susan. It was love at first sight, and she brought Susan on her honeymoon with Prince Philip in 1947. Susan died in 1959 and the ueen designed a gravestone for her and had her buried at Sandringham Hoouse, reports People magazine.

From there, Queen Elizabeth had 30 corgis throughout her 70 years on the throne, with Muick and Sandy being the last two.
