"Orphaned" Peks are sometimes fed like a baby, W'lth a bottle. This devotion t? dogs recenlLv took a still more Interesting turn. Several titled members of the Unitei Travelers' aiid Counties' Club, or;anlzcd luxurious accommodation for the comfort of their dogs on the premises, where a veterinii-y and kennel maids are in attendance. Dogs up in London from the country can ]ust rtm in and leave their collars, with jUt the aliglitest fear of having one single brass nail stolen. Members of thii club have first to fill up a pedigre' form about the canine applicant, so thivt the pvtrest bred Pom need Iiave uo fear of undesirable Society. The laws of selection or the -�i.aarles of taprlce place the Peklng^sa and Pomeraiilans on .the topmost rung: of fashionable favor. They represent the triumph of-cosmopblilad taste in" the dog world. In. much the- same tvay as the Russian dancers stand for !t in the terpslchoreaji world. Turn the entries In 11 dog show catalbgue of thirty years ago and compare (j^hem with present day exhibits, and you see at a glance what.a fall has taken place In truly Bngliah taste. The Otter hound, the white English terrier, am" ; the curly haired, retriever have practical')' disappeared'from the show world. The English canine world :s divided into dogs and pots. Quito half the population of the British Isles "keep a dawg" for companionship. But it isonly a small proportion of the Upper Ten who can Indulge In the' expensi+fi habit cf keeping exhibition dogs. The bull dog, of course, is the natural breed. Lord Charles Beresford being particularly lond of them. ' JNtembers of the English Royal family have never given much countenance to the craze tor uncommon strains. King Edward contented himself with a wire-haired terrier, "Caesar," the most-talked-of dog of the century. Noither-do fancy breeds receive any. encouragement" from the Prince ,of Wales, who owns n. prizewinner in "Nelleth," a Welsh tcrriiii? pup. This bonnle little son of Queen Llechwedd was presented to liim by the Welali peoiile on the occasion of his investiture as Prince of Wales. ' Queen Alexandra- is a frequent exhibitor, and -owns two famous Uas-set hounds, "Sandringham Nero" and, "Sandringham "\''aiour." ' .Vmong tho toy variety nothing can outclass the Pekingese m popularity. The first itwo "Peks" came from .tapan in jSGO, wl�n the Sutnmer Palace at Pekin waa looted by the English rtiui I'Vencli: This is supposed to be the oldest breed of dogs kept by mar., and for many centuries 'they llv.ed in sacred seclusion in the i-oyal palacei T^he Pekingese were sometimes known as th? Sleeve dogs, because 'they could be comfortably carried in the sleeve ot tho Cblneso dress", Thb popularity of th,ese ppts spread rapidly, until today there .are several clubs and so,-cietles for, the enqoMi'ttgement of the breed. Lardy Algrerhon Gordon-Lennox, President 6f the" Peking Palace Dog Assocl!i'tion,'>"is- the greatest authority on them. . :. .- At the last show,of pet dogs held in London, when there were, five hundred and ninety-five exhibits, it was evident that tile onc'e cherished nose of the pug has been ptit out ot joint,, the toy dog having ousted him from favor. Many a lady's chleif occupation that day Was with the rnysterica of the canine toilet, and- sftent sprai's, manicure weapon."?, .and combs � were much in evidence. 'The-rno-st costly dbg In the s'ala classes was the poodle, Count de Monte Crialo, valued at $5,000.
