In very upsetting news, Queen Elizabeth's corgi, Whisper, passed away this morning at Windsor Castle. While the Queen still has two dorgis (yes, that's a dachshund-and-corgi mix), she also dealt with the death of her other corgi Willow earlier this year. We all know how easy it is to get attached to our pets, and the Queen is no different from us (except for, you know, the royal title).

To honor Whisper's memory, here are the sweetest photos of the Queen and her corgis through the years.
