In the February episode "Cheddar," Amy and Jake manage to lose Holt's beloved corgi, Cheddar, when they house-sit for the captain while he takes his hubby to Paris.
The Netflix series about the young Queen Elizabeth II (Claire Foy) features several too-brief scenes featuring the British monarch with her beloved Welsh pets -- they even keep a visiting Prime Minister Winston Churchill company while he waits for the queen at Buckingham Palace.
Steven Spielberg's adaptation of Roald Dahl's book includes a memorable scene in which the Queen of England -- and her three corgis -- drink a fizzy green beverage called frobscottle from Giantland that has some hilariously gassy side effects.
In the pilot for the Cartoon Network series, our heroine Tulip finds herself in Corgiana, a land ruled by a King Atticus, "uniter of the Cardigans and Pembrokes" (the two breeds of corgi).
"Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency"
In the BBC America's bizarro adaptation of the Douglas Adams novels, a supernatural detective (Samuel Barrett) and his reluctant bellhop sidekick (Elijah Wood) keep running into a corgi who seems central to their investigations -- at one point, the dog swaps bodies with a woman.
