the Civil war in England could end for 3 years earlier, than was predetermined by history if not a poodle of prince Rupert Reynsky. Ill-wishers considered that actually the demon who helps the owner disappears in an image of a dog. On portraits of that time Rupert was always represented near a dog. It is interesting that on the cloths created by Rupert's enemies not the poodle, and a terrible hybrid of a dog and a dragon is drawn.
Cromwell's troops surrounded Once Charles I's army and crumpled ranks of defenders of the monarchy. The king by miracle escaped from an environment and jumped on the leychestersky road. But two groups of cavalrymen of Cromwell, obviously, having received the order at any cost to capture Charles, from two parties rushed across.
Here on the roadside ran out from a grove a white shaggy being, drew with loud bark Charles's attention and forced it to turn sharply into the field behind a grove. Persecutors were met by Rupert Reynsky's cuirassiers who hid in a grove. Cromwell's horsemen were forced to recede.
— As call it … a dog? — Charles asked, pointing to the dog who is selflessly chasing butterflies.
— This poodle call Fight, your majesty — Rupert Reynsky answered.
the King shot from a neck the film with an award of the Holy Spirit, hesitated a little and said:
— This small quite deserved an award for rescue of the king, but as at us, in England, it is not accepted to award dogs, I hand an award to the owner of this hero. And poodles let from now on and forever are called royal dogs!
also began to call Since then a big poodle royal.
At least, so says an old legend.
was the fate of the Fight? Perhaps, in something Rupert's enemies were and are right. During military operations the poodle always was at the commander — and its owner won a victory behind a victory. But in fight at Marston-Moura the bullet got to an unfortunate dog, and he died. And nearly for the first time for the career prince Rupert got beaten.

Famous owners of poodles
Sometimes writers create the works in co-authorship. The outstanding prose writer John Steinbeck, the winner of the Pulitzer Prize, the author of such novels as "East of Eden" and "Grapes of Wrath" acted this way. In 1960 the writer restored forces after recently postponed heart attack. He did not want to be reconciled with the infirmity. On the contrary, Steinbeck went to a travel in a trailer which he called Rosinant in honor of Don Quixote's horse. Together with the satellite, Charlie's poodle, the writer overcame 19 thousand kilometers, crossed 37 states and a part of the territory of Canada and, at last, in 1961 came back home to New York.
in this wandering was not a burden at all. He helped Steinbeck to come into contact with the people meeting on the way. If the writer wanted to start talking to the stranger, was to approach him him together with Charlie enough. Besides, the poodle was a wonderful listener. On the way the owner and a dog discussed a set of subjects, from life in small towns before racial discrimination. Therefore Steinbeck did not take offense at the pet when because of his aggressive reaction to a bear they had to leave Yellowstone National Park quickly.
the Report on a travel which is relevant called "A travel with Charlie in search of America" was published in 1961 and had great success with readers and critics. The mobile house belonging to the writer is stored in the National center of Steinbeck in Salinas, the State of California. And the next lines can serve as a monument to faithful Charlie: "Charlie is a kind friend and the excellent road companion, travel for it — the most razlyubezny business, it is better than which will think up nothing. Mentions of Charlie will often come across on these pages because he promoted success of my trip".
remember as the first of a galaxy the "star writers" who are tirelessly propagandizing the books in television talk shows and as author of "The valley of dolls", the fiction from the world of the show business exposing dirty linen. This book became the best-seller with an unprecedented circulation of 20 million copies and is one of the most popular literary works in the history.
But creations of the writer, perhaps, would never be issued if not her poodle Josephine. Susan got this dog in 1955 when she lived in New York and worked at the lowest steps of show business. She wanted to become a writer and even had a novel plan about starlets whose life is destroyed by chaotic sex and drugs, but nobody showed to it interest. Then Susan composed the amusing, semi-truthful report on the relationship with pudelikhy Josephine whom she dresses up in the dresses corresponding on style to her own clothes. This story published in 1963 had moderate success. Nevertheless, it made the writer "of" in literary circles that allowed to publish also "The valley of dolls". The rest, as they say, history.
