It looks like this photo was taken during the time the famous Felix Yussupov painting with his dog was made. I thought it was an interesting picture...

No problem Margarita. It was posted some time ago but as always I saved it just in case it was removed. Not sure who posted it, I want to say Annie, but I'm not totally sure.  :-\

I'm not sure if any of you would have seen this portrait before ?

It was painted by Johannes Linse (1875-1930)

A web site that talks about Ortino, a bulldog and her mistress GD Tatiana:

Dear AGRBear, this link + article about Ortino was very interesting in its days, but is a bit dated now as we are getting updated news thanks to Russian / or " who can speak and read Russian " members of this forum ( particularly on the thread Alexis had a dog named Shot ).
As to the tiny and very beautiful Fabergé figurine shown in the article, it is not displayed in the museum of L'Hermitage in St Petersbourg, but in the Armoury museum of the Kremlin in Moscow. It may be nice to think that this figurine was part of GD Tatiana's presumed small collection of Ortino's figurines, but I am not sure there is genuine evidence for this, nor for the rather similar ( but less beautiful IMO ) Fabergé french bulldog figurine displayed at Cleveland museum.

Thank you for the link Bear it was interesting. Nicely written bar a tiny mistake about where they are buried.

Shows the love the family had for animals that we know so well.

I added a note on the web site about the family being buried in Pig's Meadow.  I did not mention the Faberge figurine.  Perhaps milita would like to make this correction.

I never realized that the Duke of Cumberland resembled (at least in my eyes) King Christian. Thank you for the correction! How odd that Thyra’s hair went white before Maria and Alix’s.

y'know, you may be correct about the gentleman being their father, king Christian.....  now that i think about it, i believe i've heard/read both men mentioned as the fourth player.

but that is Thyra.   at least in the later part of her life, she always had much lighter hair than her sisters & it's often difficult  to tell, sometimes, in b&w fotos, if hair is blond-ish or white.   but, think, her hair did go white before her sisters (but keep in mind that wigs & hairpieces were used to disguise greying hair, at least in Alexandra's case...  but i don't think i've ever heard that MF did that.  i tend to think she didn't.

I recall the article said they were buried in Moscow but of course they are buried in St P. It was this that I was referring to and sorry if I caused any confusion. Was the figure found with them? As Ortino seems to have been killed that night and placed with the bodies I suppose the figure might have been with them in the grave but I do not know. I wold have thought such a item would have been removed by the butchers.

Since this is a thread about pets,  I've asked the question over on another thread:

It is believed that Tatiana's dog, Ortino, was killed in the early morning hours as were Nicholas II and his family.  Were his bones found in the mass grave?  If not,  were the dog's bones found anywhere?  Maybe,  at the Four Brother's Mine?  I remember there were small animal bones found at the mine.  Some were chicken bones.... 

We know about Jemmy's, the Springer Spaniel's,  corpse being found in July of 1919 by the Whites.

Does anyone know what book this is from? (The seller usually sells reprints from Russian books not commonly available in the US)

I stand corrected.

Jemmy was the Japanese Chin
Joy was the Springer Spaniel
Ortino was the French Bull Dog.

Sorry for the error.
