We had a Corgi mix (with fox terrier - so she was bigger than either one) when I grew up and she was loving, intelligent and the stubbornist thing on the face of the earth. Also - you couldn't convince her to be afraid of ANY other dog - even a Doberman - she KNEW she was the boss.

Patrick, I wasn't referring to the paper money to PAY for the loo. . .

I saw a rather nice mobile phone story about HM.
A journalist was standing in a group around the Queen and to her intense embarrasment her phone rang (the journo's phone, not the Queen's).
Scarlet-faced, she hurried to switch it off and the Queen said, "hadn't you better answer it, it might be someone important",

I feel sorry for the poor woman on two counts, all that standing around and having to watch the Royal Variety Show.
I wouldn't wish that on my worst enemy.

And being nice to an endless array of international politicians and diplomats, not to mention lots of ordinary people who don't know what to say. That must take it out of you a bit.

One "behind the scenes" documentary showed her in some sort of diplomatic party where a famously pompous and grumpy former Prime Minister was going on at some length about how he was the only person to make a private diplomatic initiative to talk to a dangerous foreign leader - at which HM jokingly said "Oh, but you were dispensible". It was a joy to see the expression on his face.
