Milo the greyhound is sculpted from gorgeous soft grey and white plush and he has long legs and endearing eyes. Milo is part-pellet filled and he wears an red and gold trimmed collar. Milo is part of The Queen's Beasts Collection by Charlie Bears that celebrates the ten creatures that guard the entrance to Westminster Abbey, where Her Majesty the Queen of England was crowned in 1953. After the coronation, they were moved to the Canadian Museum of History in Quebec. Each beast supports a shield bearing a coat of arms of a family associated Queen Elizabeth II and her ancestry.

Milo is part of an individually number edition of just 2,000 pieces and he represents the White Greyhound of Richmond, which was a badge of John of Grant, Earl of Richmond, son of Edward III.
