You've Got Mail

My Post Office let me, Sweet William The Scot, know that I had mail.

I had been expecting a package for awhile now from over the pond.
It got mailed to the wrong zip off the Christmas Card List and took the American tour.
(Yes that is a red bandage on my leg, I got hurt.  I will tell you about what happen next week.)

See my dear friend, Princess Leah, knows how much my Lee loves history and that we both like to read, me being a Reader Dog and all.

Well when they went to Chatsworth, Derbyshire and gave us all the great grand tour on her blog they got us a book about Deborah Mitford the Duchess of Devonshire. 
So now we can read about her entire family and her escapades.
No return address utoh!
Now that Downton Abbey has ended we had to find something else with royal blood and perhaps a  Dowager like Maggie Smith portrayed to entertain us.  Well this book is doing just that.

They also sent us a wonderful Radley London notebook.  Why it has notes to self and don't forget notes and to do list notes and paper pads.  Now when I am out and about I can write down all that I want to tell you on my blog.  I won't have to worry about forgetting.
Or when Lee says we must go there and show your friends, well I can add that to my to do list.
I feel very English having a Radley.
And it has Scotties on the cover and paper like me!
Yep I hit the jackpot with this package.
And here is a Butter Pillar photo for the Princess.
A giant Butter Pillar of silk.

Princess Leah was just so thoughtful to think of me.
She is a lovely Princess to have in our Blogville.
Thank you very much fair Princess for my package.

Thanks for being a friend
Traveling down the road and back again
Your heart is true and your a friend of mine
Signing Off
Sweet William The Scot

Lee got called back to paint the Poodle.  Next they want a Retriever then a Dobermann.
Lee hopes they change their mind on the Dobermann.  Being they are in white the Dobermann is just going to look bare in appearance  with the other three.


  1. that was a lovely gift from a lovely friend

  2. Very nice pressing from your admirer. Hope that foot gets better And hope you got extra treats
    Lily & Edward

  3. that was a pawsome idea the Princess Leah had... I'm sad that Dogton Abbey ended... it was like they are our neighbors somehow. Maybe your Lee can paint a Weimaraner instead? That would make technically a Billy for the color , but they are great dogs too :o)

  4. What a thoughtful gift from the Princess. We hope your ouchie wasn't too bad but we will cross our paws for you to make sure you are fully healed.

  5. What a great package from the Princess. Your very own Radley notebook - how perfect. And Lee has painted a properly fancy poodle there - most impressive.
    But Sweet William, I do not at all like to hear that your have been hurt, and hope it is all better soon.
    Toodle pip!
    PS I still think a wire fox terrier would look better in the window than a Dobermann,

  6. You get good stuff to read. I get yesterday's news on the bottom of my cage and reading it makes me so mad that I just poop.

  7. You are very welcome dear sweet William, I adjust so sorry that the book had to do a book tour first!
    Please get well soon
    Loves and licky kisses
    Princess Leah
    PeeS Don't forget to put TREATS on Lee shopping list!

  8. That is such a thoughtful gift from your friend from over the pond. Being a history fan did you watch Victoria last night? It was very good I thought. Have a great week.

  9. What a thoughtful gift from Princess Leah. The note pad with your picture will let everyone know that it is yours. Lee did a wonderful job painting that fancy poodle. Hope you did not get hurt to badly.
    Bentley & Pat

    1. Yes it is a wonderful note pad and I love the gift. Hope you are well Bentley. Joseph was a wonderful gift also. The flowers are doing great blooming over him. Maybe he is the Joseph for flowers not home sales.
      Your friend

    2. Oh well, you gave it a good try.
      AT least he is helping out with your flowers.
      Bentley & Pat

    3. The two houses that started in Spring for sale are still on the market and have been lowered in price below what they paid for them one by $15,000.
      The Nati City Reality Market stinks.

    4. This area was also having problems with house selling but now it is turning around some. They are starting to build new homes again.
      Bentley & Pat

  10. Look at your fancy ass with a Radley notebook, mom is so jealous! The poodle looks great. I've tried to picture what the white Doberman will look like. I bet Lee can pull it off. Have a great day.

    Aroo to you,
