The Princess is shown with a small terrier in her arms, which would have been impossible at that time. The dogs in Europe in the 1800s were large dogs like mastiffs or German Shepherds.

This is truly one of my favorite classics. My grandmother gave it to me when I was five, after she saw my interest in and love of opera and musicals.
