Yes, he indeed does. It was taken in late 1900's/ early 1910's. But the dog is not Joy. (Do notice that Joy had white, not black - haired legs)

Yes, the same one --it was taken at Tsarskoe Selo Gardens, in 1915.

The photo with Alexei pushing the child's wheel barrow with the dog is standing with it's tail toward the camera.  We cannot see his forelegs very well, so,  I'm not sure if they are white with freckles.  If taken before 1910 then it probably wasn't Joy.  However, the back of the dog's  neck has the white just like Joy's.



The dog on the hay stack with Alexei appears to be dark and because of the shadows I cannot tell what kind of dog he/she is. And,  the dog doesn't have the white markings of Joy's.

Did Alexei have more than one English Springer Spaniel?

Obviously, our beloved tsarevich, liked pets,too, this picture probably has been taken on board of the "Standart", by his sister, I don't know.
Another picture of Alexei and his kittens:

Yep, we have six little furballs as well.

Here's another:

Hi!

Yes, indeed: OTMAA liked pets!

Here are other photos, probably from the same day, of them with the kittens. So cute! And by the way, tose pictures can be found in Yale's album, if anybody's interested.

Here are Masha and Tatiana:


All the children together. Maria, Nastya, Alexei, Tatiana, Olga:


Small Nastya with a kitten in the sun:

All the pictures were took ont the Standart, and I think it was during summer 1908, so the kids would have been about 4, 7, 9, 11 and 12.  ( In case anybody don't know)

I'm sorry if the photos are too large, but I just couldn't resist too post them.  ;)

Thank you,  AGRBear, but I still doubt if the dog in the photo was Joy.

However, here is little bigger version of Alexei's photo taken at Livaida in 1912:

On this picture, particularly the smaller version, he looks a lot like his cousin Dickie Mountbatten. Dickie was slimmer as a young lad, but you can see the same face and hair - and also in some of the 1917 pics of Alexei taken at Tsarskoe Selo in uniform there is a resemblance  to Dickie aged around 19 - it's the long straight nose and face.

I don't think it was taken in captivity...because the soldier is too friendly,  well dressed and has no rifle. But here's a better copy of  the photo
and an  another that might have been taken the same day . That one was in 1915 I believe

Correct -- the soldier is actually Count V.N. Voeikov; according to Vyrubova's label, it was taken at Mogilev during the war. However, on one Russian exhibition, the last one was labeled to have been taken by Gillirad in 1917, which is contradiction.
