Here is an enchanting picture of Sarah's little girl, dressed as a snowy owl (of course). She is known by me as The Principessa, because she is so elegant and beautiful.
The Principessa is highly artistic, has an inordinate love of very small toy puppies, which she keeps mostly in her pockets, and is an exceptionally snappy dresser. (One gets the sense that she is not at all convinced by her mother's love of black, although she is too polite to say so.) She is a great favourite with my dogs, and very kindly allows them to kiss her all over her face when she comes to stay.
