Army of lovers grand fatigue

Sadly, the master was not worthy of his dog. Although Boy was killed by a Roundhead soldier at Marston Moor, the primary reason for his death was that somebody fecklessly forgot to tie him up (Anne Osborne, "Rupert of the Rhine, Anecdotes in the life of Prince Rupert--dog lover", Tail-Wagger Magazine , June 1950, p. 146; however this detail is unreferenced, and, judging from handling of regimental mascots, and dogs belonging to individuals in the armies during the Napoleonic Wars, it may have been customary to allow such dogs their freedom).

If Prince Rupert forgot to tie up his dog, it's less surprising that he arrived late at the Battle of Nasby (14 June 1645) because he had stopped on the way to eat ice cream.

Lydia Hopkins, in The Complete Poodle , 3rd edition (NY: Howell, 1962), pp. 281-3, mentions Poodles who accompanied their masters during the Napoleonic Wars, for example, that Emperor Napoleon recollected in his memoirs the faithfulness of a Poodle who died at the battle of Marengo, licking the face of his fallen master, a Grenadier. (We infer from a reference in Estelle Ross, The Book of Noble Dogs , New York: Century, 1922, p. 283, that this recollection is contained in Napoleon I, Memorial de St. Hélène ).

Barbuche "was one of three inseparable friends that fought in the Italian campaign. He was the pet of Petit Jean, a waif who had been lost, and of old Sergeant Fougasse, who took them both under his protection." Petit Jean became a drummer boy; he died in battle; Barbuche lost a front leg defending his dying master; after the war, Fougasse earned his living through Barbuche's tricks; through this, met Petit Jean's mother and was able to tell his story. (Hopkins, pp. 282-3.)

Buff. See "Gordon's Poodle Visuals" for a reference to the portrait by Ward of Buff, who accompanied his master, Lt. Col. Chestmaster, during the Peninsula War.

The Ending Fatigue trope as used in popular culture When a viewer reader or player finds the fiction they are perusing to be otherwise fine but cant.

Charles André Joseph Marie de Gaulle ( French:  [ʃaʁl də ɡol]  (   listen ) ; 22 November 1890 – 9 November 1970) was a French general and statesman. He was the leader of Free France (1940–44) and the head of the Provisional Government of the French Republic (1944–46). In 1958, he founded the Fifth Republic and was elected as the President of France , a position he held until his resignation in 1969. He was the dominant figure of France during the Cold War era and his memory continues to influence French politics.

Although re-elected President in 1965 , in May 1968 he appeared likely to lose power amid widespread protests by students and workers, but survived the crisis with backing from the Army and won an election with an increased majority in the Assembly. De Gaulle resigned in 1969 after losing a referendum in which he proposed more decentralization. He died a year later at his residence in Colombey-les-Deux-Églises , leaving his Presidential memoirs unfinished. Many French political parties and figures claim the Gaullist legacy.

De Gaulle was ranked as "Le Plus Grand Français de tous les temps" (the Greatest Frenchman of All Time). [1]

By the time he was ten he was reading medieval history. De Gaulle began his own writing in his early teens, especially poetry, and later his family paid for a composition, a one-act play in verse about a traveller, to be privately published. [9] A voracious reader, he later favored philosophical tomes by such writers as Bergson , Péguy , and Barrès. In addition to the German philosophers Nietzsche , Kant and Goethe , he read the works of the ancient Greeks (especially Plato ) and the prose of the romanticist poet Chateaubriand. [9]

De Gaulle was educated in Paris at the Collège Stanislas and studied briefly in Belgium where he continued to display his interest in reading and studying history and shared the great pride many of his countrymen felt in their nation's achievements. [10] At the age of fifteen he wrote an essay imagining “General de Gaulle” leading the French Army to victory over Germany in 1930; he later wrote that in his youth he had looked forward with somewhat naive anticipation to the inevitable future war with Germany to avenge the French defeat of 1870. [11]

Just one day after Hurricane Harvey made landfall in southeastern Texas, historic flooding continued to wrack the city of Houston and surrounding areas.

According to CNN , authorities said they have rescued more than 1,000 people from the rising waters, with more than 24 inches of water falling on the Houston area in the past 24 hours as of 7:00am local time Sunday. The Washington Post reported the National Weather Service’s Weather Prediction Service is “calling for an additional 15-25 inches of rain over the middle and upper Texas coast, including the Houston area, during the next several days, with isolated amounts possibly reaching 40 inches.”

While the storm was reported to have killed at least one person as of Saturday, by Sunday, the Houston Chronicle reported the body count is suspected to have risen to five people.

Authorities urged residents to shelter in their residences, or even climb onto the roofs of their homes if they were flooding.

“I know for a fact this is the worst flood Houston has ever experienced,” National Weather Service meteorologist Patrick Blood told the Chronicle .
