A very impressive wedding exhibition was taking place at our hotel. Groups of brides-to-be with their anxious mothers and fathers were walking around looking at all the paraphernalia that no self-respecting wedding seems able to do without.

Animalcouriers were walking our canine charges around the same area. As we passed stretch limos and fancy horses and carts, we did raise a few eybrows. Billy the Pug seemed especially keen to find out just what was on offer, but was soon distracted by playing a kind of tag game with courier J and his lead.

“What?” you can almost hear him say

This is what Billy was looking at

No Billy, it’s not a lamppost

Handsome, playful fellow
