This wonderful memorial looks almost regal with the impressive crown on top. Perhaps it was the pet of a French enobled family? Note the depiction of the deceased animal lying on a cushion. Click once on the image and then again for a close-up view. I am stuck by the engorged nipples. Maybe she died giving birth to a litter of puppies?

Here is a hand-tinted postcard of the memorial to Ines II who didn't reach his first birthday. I presume the bust at the top of the memorial is lifelike. Alfie, whose details are listed on the side of the stone was born on 12 December 1900 and died 11 December 1905 - a day short of his fifth birthday.
