Publisher's Summary

Bursting with zest, humour and adventure, The Queen's Corgi is sure to delight anyone who has known the smiling face and warm tongue of a dog.

‘Wouldn’t it be wonderful if newspapers did more to share stories and insights that were really meaningful? Things that might help people lead more purposeful lives.’ The Queen glanced over at him, uncertainly. 

‘Tricky business, persuading the media to lift their sights from terror and trivia. Every one of us has tried.’ Pushing myself up so that I was balancing on my rear end, I fixed Kate with a pleading expression. She was a soft touch when it came to scones.

There was a pause while the family glanced in my direction. Before Kate said, ‘Well, not every family member.’

Rescued from unscrupulous breeders who plan to destroy him because of his floppy ear, when the Queen’s littlest corgi arrives at Windsor Castle, he finds himself in a world of red carpets, gilded chambers - and not a pile of dirty laundry to be seen. Charming his way into the affections of the royal household, Nelson offers a dog’s-eye view of life with the Queen. He eavesdrops on her encounters with celebrities, philanthropists and advisers, catching rare insights into the secrets of a purposeful life. Through one of Her Majesty’s most mysterious advisers, he discovers how the ancient ways and powerful symbols continue to exert a transformative presence. He also becomes familiar with the Queen’s most surprising quality: her gentle but firm expectation that everyone she encounters is striving to be the best that they can be.  

The Queen’s Corgi bursts with zest, humour and adventure. Romping through the litany of Nelson’s misdemeanours are a warmheartedness and deep wisdom sure to delight anyone who has known the smiling face and warm tongue of a dog.

Michie does it again!!

I love each and every one of David's books. I was a bit skeptical about this one, as I never have been interested in the Royal Family, but, as usual it was clever and funny and with soooo many deep spiritual messages!
It had me laughing and crying and just generally inspired!!
Thank you David...I love your work!!

Wonderful way of teaching us life lessons.

I absolutely LOVE the way David Michie writes about Buddhist teaches through a Corgies eyes.
Its funny, is clever, is light hearted yet profound.
I wholehearted loved The Dalai Lamas Cat too.
An absolute must to listen to.

Cute

Lovely easy cute story.
If only dogs did write books I'd read more of them.
