The stumpy little feckers favoured by Queen Elizabeth II may soon be a thing of the past.

The British Kennel Club announced that only 274 Corgis were registered in the past year, which designates them as a "vulnerable" breed.

It's estimated that there are only 5,000 Corgis left in the United Kingdom, with the Queen herself no longer adding any more corgis to her litter.

They're a tripping hazard for her, apparently.

With a significantly reduced pool of Corgis in the UK, it's quite likely that they could be extinct within a generation if nothing is done.

What would we do without these little guys?
