A young Elizabeth II with her dog. I dread the day when that grand old lady passes on.
Early 20th. century depiction of Alice Roosevelt, President Theodore Roosevelt's oldest child. Alice would carry a snake, (she named it, Miss Emily Spinach) in her purse to parties to liven things up if they got dull. ''Sir, I can either be president of the United States, or look after Alice. I cannot possibly do both!'' Theodore Roosevelt.
