Poppy, Anna, Alice, Oliver, and Megan–the five Pembroke Welsh corgis playing four of ER II’s dogs in The Queen–have won the top honor at the first annual Fido Awards. And I say they deserve it, especially for that bit at the end when one of them jumps up on Tony Blair and seems to be looking in his pocket for a treat.
Now, anyone who reads The Ottery knows how much respect and praise I shower upon Helen Mirren for her performance in the film; however, if you’re a regular reader, you also know that any herding dog from the British Isles will trump any actor on my list of “Things That Make Me Go Squee.” And I was so disappointed that Peter Morgan’s and Stephen Frears’s DVD commentary for The Queen didn’t say anything about what it was like to work with the canine stars. So it is with utmost joy that I present to you a video of CORGIS ON THE RED CARPET!!!!!!
