Tasha Tudor died 6/18/2008 in Marlboro, Vermont. Her estate, over $2 million, was contested by the three children she disinherited... "Her will left the bulk of the estate to Seth Tudor, and his son; $1,000 each to her two daughters, and a piece of antique furniture to younger son, because of their 'estrangement' from her." -However, over her lifetime she gave her son a half share in her home in Marlboro, Vermont, $2 million in art work, with a similar lifetime disposition to her two daughters.

About the corgi, in Tasha Tudor's own words: "There is no other dog that can compare to a corgi. They're the epitome of beauty. Apollo can't hold a candle to my Owyn. He has royal blood, the same sire as Queen Elizabeth's corgis, that's why I named him Owyn Tudor after my ancestors. Corgis are Welsh in origin and there are two kinds: Cardigans, which are heavy-headed and have tails that go all the way down, and Pembrokes, like mine, that have no tails and are more refined."
