Petey meets the Royal Family...on Greenwich Avenue, NYC?

Hello there Ladies and Lords! Petey here. No, I'm not outside the gardens at Buckingham Palace, I'm right across the street! But you may think I'm in Jolly Old Englande for the Royal Wedding!

First off, I've been wearing an Elizabethan collar after a dog bit me on the ear at the run. We both went after my tennis ball and I got there first. Wish I could say "you should see the other guy" but she outweighs me by about 60 lbs. No permanent damage done!

Am I outside Clarence house? No, just a townhouse on West 12th Street.

Here's our favorite tea shop — Tea & Sympathy—and next door is A Salt & Battery, a proper fish and chips shop. The whole block was decorated with Union Jacks and royal bunting for the occasion.

Now that's a flag!

Why look! It's Prince William and Princess Catherine, with the Queen (Nicky, truly the ruling monarch of Greenwich Avenue.)

They look much younger than their photo in the window.

Lots of people got up to watch the wedding over a proper English breakfast at 6:00 am.

Here's Nicky's husband Sean, the Pearly King, chatting with a commoner over a nice cuppa.

Sean confessed he grew this big handlebar mustache "just to bother the wife!"

Don't worry little bridesmaid, Prince Harry's still available! Actually, she was more interested in me - maybe my name should be Prince Hairy?

A fun day for all!

A final shot of the happy couple, getting into their royal carriage!

Crickey Bestie. Your poor old lug'ole. Hope you played the pity card and got lots of tea and sympathy at tea and sympathy. And rich tea biscuits for dunking.

Isn't it pucker perfect to be all paws across the pee on such an exciting day? Kate and Wills look smashing. Weird or what - much younger than I remember. Mom Square says can you ask Kate the name of her plastics magic man 'cos she's on her way right now.

Wiry love n kisses Eric xx

Hi Petey
Great to hear from you. Looks like you had a great day. Did you get any baked beans from brekkers?
I must say there seem to have been more Union Jacks flying in Greenwich village than in the whole of Aberdeen. By far!
Too bad about the 'Elizabethan collar though'...
Toodle pip!

Martha said...

What a fun day Petey, we enjoyed yours more than the 'real' one!
Sorry about the nasty bite....!!
You are very brave.
Much love
The Aunties xx
