Introducing the Inimitable

Shorty McCormick, the dog of queens, or at least one queen. Elizabeth has 18 corgis.
This one was born in Mt. Vernon about eight weeks ago and delivered by the Puppy Santa yesterday. She is sort of paper trained, sometimes remembers to ask to go out, all of which I think is pretty good for a baby.
