I've always thought Tatiana favored her father's side of the family but boy does her expression look a lot like Alexandra in that picture

It was Olga who favored her father's family side, while Tatiana was all like Alexandra.

Perhaps that is why they were so close.

Olga did share some of her motherīs facial features, but overal she definitely favoured Nicholas. Tatiana was more like Alix, but even more like her aunt Ella - and also Empress Maria Alexandrovna, at least to my eyes.

Sorry to be late in discovering the lovely photo of Tatiana holding / cuddling a puppy : it is a brindle French Bulldog puppy, 99% sure. French Bulldogs puppies are very tiny when they are born, they can go their new home at the age of 8 weeks. They are teenagers between 6 months and about 1 year old, and change a lot. Frenchies are generally at their best around 3 years old, though boys generally mature physically quicker than girls.
Tatiana received Ortipo as a present from Dimitri Malama in October 1914 and she must have been a puppy of this size I guess. As to Ortipo's own puppies who were born about one year later, they were crossed breed, no one knew who the father was and the poor things were said said to be "ugly".
On another note, one has to know that the breed changed a lot between its origins around the 1880 and nowadays. To day 's Frenchies are larger, far too large in France in my opinion. I have had French Bulldogs for years and like them small and cobby.
This should be in the Tatiana and Ortipo thread, I guess. However I felt that this infos would be of interest for some members.

Who are the two men in the background?  The tsar and the grand duchesses look uncomfortable, and I'm assuming the two are guards.

This looks like it was taken during their captivity at Tsarskoe Selo in 1917.

No, it was during the visit to Mogilev in 1916.
