Dookie (1933-?) or Rozavel Golden Eagle was a Queen Elizabeth II, who has since owned over thirty corgis.



Dookie was born "Rozavel Golden Eagle" in 1933 and bred by Thelma Gray at the Rozavel Kennels in [5]

Royal life

After being chosen by the family, Dookie was boarded by Thelma Gray until the family had moved to [8] The family loved the name and it eventually stuck.

Dookie became a loved member of the family and was described as "unquestionably the character of the Princesses’ delightful canine family" and "a born sentimentalist."[9] The princesses even fed the dog by hand.[10] He did however, have a habit of nipping at the heels of guests.[3]

Three years later another corgi named Rozavel Lady Jane was purchased to be the companion of Dookie.[11] However, Dookie was not interested in the other corgi and Jane was paired with Rozavel Tafferteffy. Jane produced two pups named Carol and Crackers.[7] Crackers became a constant companion of Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother and even retired with her to the Castle of Mey in Scotland.[12]
