LONDON, October 17. /TASS/. Head of the Russian Orthodox Church, Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia Kirill was presented with a Pembroke Welsh Corgi puppy in London, the Patriarch’s spokesman Alexander Volkov said on Monday.
The puppy was given to Patriarch Kirill by the parish of the Russian Orthodox Cathedral of the Dormition of the Mother of God, where he had conducted a divine service on Sunday.
"The parishioners gave His Holiness a puppy, he will take him to Moscow," the spokesman said noting that the Patriarch liked the puppy a lot. A name for the puppy hasn’t been chosen yet.
It is a well-known fact that the Pembroke Welsh Corgi dogs are Queen Elizabeth II’s favorites. She received her first dog for her 18th birthday from her father King George VI (1895-1952). It was the Pembroke Welsh Corgi, bred in West Wales, named Susan. Queen Elizabeth has been keeping only Pembroke Welsh Corgis as pets since then.
Patriarch Kirill is in London on October 15-18 on his first ever pastoral visit to commemorate the 300th anniversary of the presence of Russian Church on the British Isles.
