    This hound was loot of war
    Friedrich Wilhelm Keyl (1823-71)
    "Looty" 1861

    Looty, a Pekinese Lion dog, is depicted here sitting on a red cushion in front of a Japanese vase. Beside the dog are a bunch of flowers and his collar, on which are sewn two little bells. The little dog had been found by Captain John Hart Dunne of the 99th Regiment after the Summer Palace near Beijing (Peking, as it was then known) had been looted on 8 October 1860. When he returned to England he presented it to Queen Victoria for 'the Royal Collection of dogs'. Looty was considered 'the smallest and by far the most beautiful little animal that has appeared in this country'. When Keyl was asked to sketch Looty he was told he 'must put something to shew its size it is remarkably small'. A replica of this picture was painted for Captain Dunne.

    You are a wise man. They are always plotting! The farm picture was after running all day and the stadium picture they had been tracking hoping they would get to bite someone.

    It is not the size of dog, but more the size of the fight in the dog. Look at the little french bulldog go.
