    Queen Elizabeth II with one of her corgis at Sandringham, 1970. Corgis can be vicious. Over the years, the queen's corgis have nipped the royal clockwinder, torn the seat out of an officer's trousers and even bitten her majesty. In 1989, one of the Queen Mother's corgis killed the Queen's dog, Chipper.

    Queen Elizabeth II walks with her corgi on the beach in Norfolk in this undated photo. Roger Mugford, known as "the corgi whisperer," was first summoned to Windsor Castle 20 years ago to train the queen's nine corgis, who were fighting. "They're easily trained," Mugford told "Nightline." "They're very intelligent. Everybody that owns a corgi always says they are a big dog in a little frame."

The Palace called upon Mugford again this summer when there was yet another corgi conflagration. His solution for fighting dogs is a can of "hissing spray" -- perhaps that is what the queen carries in her purse.
