An Especially Impressive Memorial

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?

A General View of the Cemetery
