Here is a photo of our former foster dog, JJ, expressing sentiments we heartily echo upon our return from a visit to strange and foreign lands, where we enjoyed a near-surfeit of fishy foods, and where the deceptively picturesque waves sweeping up and off the rocky shores seem tailor-made to deliver an unsuspecting dignitary into oblivion.
We continue to brush sand out of our lovely coat whilst enjoying memories of interesting encounters with strange and pinchy beasts; with giddy, squealing foreigners for whom our particular sort of beauty was a delightful novelty; and with uncouth hounds who made a little free with our person in their exuberant curiousity to discover the secret of our origins. We were obliged to object to these liberties, but we did so in our usual charming way and avoided causing An Incident.
Enjoyable as it may be to spend a few days in the company of our royal family and the people of other, saltier climes, we are delighted to return to our fragrant, moist and emerald valley kingdom, where fishy foods are but an occasional treat and the only waves to sneak up on us are tame ones in the tub and water dish.
Hoping you behaved yourselves while we were gone, we remain
