I'm not sure, but I think he got Joy during the war, around 1914-1915?
Men are haunted by the vastness of eternity. And so we ask ourselves: will our actions echo across the centuries? Will strangers hear our names long after we're gone and wonder who we were? How bravely we fought? How fiercely we loved?

I think you're right. They got Jemmy around the same time too.

I thought he got Joy at a much younger age. I herd that Joy survived and went to live in England, is that true?

Yes. There's a thread about Joy somewhere with more info on that.

There is also a picture of Alexei and Joy at Livadia where Alexei is wearing a Cossak Uniform, does anyone have that one? I might, but I can't find it at the moment!

I was just wondering what happened to Joy after the event on July 17th.  It was said she was found alive at the house.  I know Anastasia's little dog was killed along side her.  So what happened to Joy?

I've read that Joy was sent to live in England!

I believe Joy's the one who lived out the rest of her life on a farm.

She was sent out to live in England, but the poor baby was said to have been blinded by what she witnessed... oh dear.  :'(
The little Tsarevich is still so young!
Alexei's a fledgling, an innocent son.
Holy Russia, pray for this little one.

Yes. She went to live in England and is buried at Windsor Park.

Hmm. I don't think she saw anything, I don't think she was in the room. Jemmy was in the room, and they killed him/her. I think he/she was the only pet they killed.

Joy wasn't in the room when they were killed. He/she did go blind though.

It was probably just old age. My dog went blind a few months before we had him put down. That was from old age, too.
