Filou The Toy Poodle
In Versailles, dogs had been established as the companion pet. For Louis XIV, he was very fond of Toy Poodles. That was one of the things he was known for, apart from him and his wife being beheaded during the French Revolution. These Poodles were not only liked by him but they were popular among much of the French royalty.
His favorite Poodle had to be Filou which means trickster in the French language. These Poodles were often given fancy haircuts and were carried around like trophies. Kind of similar to how dogs are carried in handbags throughout Hollywood.
