Wiggi has been my guardian angel over the years. Her Royal Highness was with me before the children, went to work with me in an office and spent almost a year down my jacket as a puppy when I was a motorcycle courier. Wiggi has been camping and been smuggled into hotels - all were greeted with her particular blend of gusto. She would sell her soul for coffee (then bark till you add sugar) and until you saw the contortions she went through for a tomato, you would not believe a Dachshund really could stand on her head!
Basically, she was one in a million and a real character. Other words used to describe her have been stubborn, obstinate, filthy, thieving, cantankerous, moody, sulky, spoilt... You get the idea. anyway, the one thing Her Majesty couldn't do was read, so I was safe to say I agreed with all of the comments over the years. But to me, one word summed her up. Perfect.
The miserable old madam was my bridesmaid when I got married. Apart from howling so I had to have her under my arm, and having to keep the ring out of her mouth (she thought it might be edible and snatched it just in case) she was surprisingly well behaved.....
There are others, that much is true,
but they be they, and they aren’t you.
And I, fair, impartial, or so I thought,
Will remember well all you’ve taught.
