Did these follow the infantry pom poms in colour = squadron?
Internet gave pictures of small dogs

6th Compagnie – sky blue and white.

3rd Squadron
3rd Compagnie aurore.
7th Compagnie aurore and white.

4th Squadron

Hope that helps.

Is that the bottom half white?

It varied from regiment to regiment. I have some regiments with top white and others with top coloured.

Or white centers – from the Mont St. Jean site.

The white centres were for the disc-type pom-poms which were added later in the wars which were not really pom-poms.
