for Bridgeton For fans who haven’t read the book, the dog is definitely an important detail. Last season, Queen Charlotte’s Pomeranians were clearly accessories to her royal lifestyle. Kate’s devotion to her dog, on the other hand, is an important part of her character. In The viscount who loved meKate’s animal friend is first described as “Newton…a slightly overweight corgi”. Newton greets visitors, and often his first impression of guests becomes Kate’s first impression. Newton’s barking, belly-slapping, and shin-climbing are the way it drives a person’s overall behavior. She also pays close attention to how Newton responds to gentleman callers and potential suitors.
Were there corgis in Regency-era England? Yes. (Sorry, advocates of historical accuracy—that’s one thing Bridgeton cannot be attacked.) There are two main breeds of Corgis: the Pembroke Corgi, what Newton is, and the Cardigan Welsh CorgI. Both breeds are native to Wales and Documentation for corgis first appears in 1107. They were originally bred to herd cattle and sheep. However, in the Regency era, Corgis were not as common as other breeds as elite class companion dogs.
