A glimpse into Betty's boudoir, mayhap? Ketelby never bargained for such bizarres...

...In a Kitty's Costume-Box doesn't seem to feature in his work-list, an opportunity missed. Still, good for a fancy-dress birthday party - chin-chin.

Eugggh! Pass the sick-bag. Embarrassed Perhaps my inclination to vomit arises because I am not, in any case, a pussy person. I much prefer dogs!

You're so butch, Dame Ethel Smyth would have found a kindred spirit...



...woof-woof! What a truly wonderful character she was, one of those personages "who you would like to invite to a dinner party" - but you would be thankful when the clock struck 11...Carriages!

Oh yes. The word "indomitable" might have been coined just to describe her! And I do like larger dogs, such as that pictured with Dame Ethel; they're much preferable to those miniature breeds that look like a cross between a rat and a lavatory brush. Grin (Cairn terriers are all right though, he added quickly, in deference to Mina).
