That canine in the lower left is Pushface, a Pekinese who was probably Lombard's best-known pet, and appeared with her in the 1936 film "Love Before Breakfast."
On another note, let me put in a good word for someone who just made some nice comments about my site. He's Billy Mernit, a writer who's as knowledgeable as anyone about the romantic comedy genre (in his film industry job as a story analyst, he's read thousands of screenplays). His book, "Writing the Romantic Comedy," is an absolute must for anyone looking to write one. He also has a blog, "Living the Romantic Comedy," which is always engaging, particularly for those of us who appreciate the creative process. Check it out at http://www.livingromcom.typepad.com/
