1955: Super Rich and French!
This is satire, pure and simple. She chooses to be seen with the dog that best matches her new English tweed coat.
By 1955 it was already somewhat unusual for Punch to expect its readers to understand French. Up to 1945 it was quite normal. No mass circulation media outlet would do so today.
