Joséphine Bonaparte had a pug named Fortune, and he was used by Joséphine to send Napoleon secret messages. It is also said that on their wedding night Napoleon refused to allow Fortune to sleep with them in the bed, and Fortune then bit him. Joséphine said, "If the pug doesn't sleep in our bed, neither do I!" From then on, Napoleon shared his bed with Joséphine and her pug.
