Ever since she was first gifted a Corgi on her 18th birthday, Queen Elizabeth II has been known for her affinity for the dog breed. Over the years, the now 89-year-old British monarch has had about 30 Corgis, all descended from her first pup, The Telegraph reported. As a royal, the Queen is able to lavish her prized pooches—currently, two Corgis and two Corgi-dachshunds—more than the average person.

Dr. Roger Mugford, an animal behaviorist who has worked with the Queen's Corgis, detailed their dinner rituals to Town & Country. "At feeding times, each dog had an individually designed menu, including an array of homeopathic and herbal remedies," he said, in an interview excerpt The Telegraph obtained. Apparently, these meals can consists of foods like home-made gravy, filet, and scones for treats.

"Their food was served by a butler in an eclectic collection of battered silver and porcelain dishes," Dr. Mugford recalled. "As I watched, the Queen got the Corgis to sit in a semi-circle around her, and then fed them one by one, in order of seniority." That last part sounds almost normal. Honestly, the butler, silver dishes, and personalized meals aren't even that strange for Corgi lovers.
