The Extreme Passions of Edward VII

King Edward VII of England (1841-1910) had a sex chair made for him and kept in a Paris bordello. The chair was necessitated by the fact that Edward's girth began to interfere with his penchant for debauchery with two or more women at once.

What's this have to do with terriers? Not much, but as noted in a previous post, Edward VII was so devoted to his terrier, Caesar, that the dog was placed in front of royalty at Edward's funeral, and a likeness of the dog is carved into marble on his grave. Caesar wore an ornate collar made by Faberge that read: “I am Caesar. I belong to the King.”
