Albert's Greyhound Eos

In the six week old puppy, Prince Albert found unconditional companionship, loyalty and love. When at the age of twenty-one he came to England to marry his cousin Victoria, Queen Victoria. Eos travelled with him.
He has been immortalised by Landseer, a multi talented artist. This statue of Eos stands in the grounds of the Osborne estate.
There is a tiny room within the house that holds many of the family's animal portraits, The Horn Room, unfortunately you have to view through a windowed door, I always find it, the most interesting of all the rooms, if not the most impressive.
