From Mrs. Beeton’s “Book of Household Management”

Mrs. Beeton says, “Do not, unless invited, take pet dogs into another house; there are people who have a great aversion to animals, and there is always a chance of the animal breaking something. Except in the case of close friends, or by special invitation, little children should not accompany a lady to tea.” However, let it be said that one can have a tea with both dogs and little children present, just have it outside!
