Dear Lucy,

I just wanted to write to say how absolutely splendid yesterday’s service at the Animal War Memorial was – I know it is a very serious subject, but I haven’t had so much fun in ages!  All those gorgeous Irish Terriers and so lovely to meet you properly.  I do think Liberty Belle is divine and reminded us so much of our Maisie when she was younger.  Gorgeous!  The only down side to yesterday was seeing how much of an old rather ill lady Maisie is now, compared to all those divine bouncing people.  But weren’t they all so good, considering we were in the middle of Park Lane with so much traffic noise etc. – amazing!  Not to mention the darling horses as well.
And how wonderfully Derek Jacobi read – all the readings were lovely, but when he spoke your beautiful poem I think they could probably hear him in Knightsbridge!  And Jenny Seagrove’s reading was heart breaking, it’s so difficult hearing about the horses in World War 1.
So a REALLY appreciative thank you for your organisation and for getting the Irish Terrier up on the monument!
All our very best and with much love to Libby as well –
Elizabeth and James Cane xx
