There are different stories about what eventually happened to Mrs. Rothschild's Pomeranian. Some of the Rothschild descendants said it was killed in a fight with another dog, but another story is that it got run over by a carriage during the confusion in New York when the Titanic survivors arrived. Both of these are sad stories, so I guess it doesn't matter too much which one you want to believe.
So I think the lesson we can learn from this story is that if you are going to be on a sinking ship, it's best to be a little dog that can be hidden under your mom's coat, so that she can sneak you into a lifeboat with her. Also, you should make sure to travel first-class. But better yet, you should avoid getting on any ship at all if it is planning to hit an iceberg and sink!
