There was great excitement and a good deal of traditional British Pomp & Ceremony at the Piggery today. It was our OFFICIAL OPENING CEREMONY.
We were indeed fortunate to have secured the services of Princess Alice and Dame Rachel to perform the necessaries.
Early this morning an exuberant audience gasped in wonder as our royal guests arrive and attempt to walk up the red carpet. Dame Rachel is a little unsteady on her pins these days, bless her.
Here Princess Alice is caught in the very act of cutting the ribbon.
Goodness knows why she had to pontificate at great length about being ‘unaccustomed’ and asking everyone what they did, and had they travelled far.
And why she had to be given a jolly big bouquet of yummy carrots for doing it, is beyond me.
At least she had the good grace to leave it within easy nibbling range – burp.
The humans celebrated the momentous moment by swigging lots of fruity stuff – Yuk!
Hello, everybody – what about some special celebratory treats for us Mummy?
Hummp – perhaps the treats are up there.
No Bear, nommm, nommmm, nothing up here!
Any chance of a celebratory cuddle then? Anyone?
That’s better – Dame Rachel came in useful after all.
And, so did Princess Alice!
Well, all’s well that ends well. What a super day – we all had a jolly nice time!
