Lovely little picture book of the Royals with their pets - mainly dogs, from Victoria and Albert to a young Queen Elizabeth II. All of the pictures are black and white and nicely presented.

This slender book from the UK's Royal Collection looks at the pets of England's royalty through photographs and paintings. Most of them are dogs, but there are a few cats here and there. It's a delight to go through, and I'm certain that many of us will recognize the emotions that the sitters and their pets are experiencing.

A wonderfully pictorial book from Queen Victoria to Queen Elizabeth II that shows just how much the English Royal Family love their dogs (and a few cats as well). Page 42 Spot, a fox terrier put a smile on my face.
