I got an email from my Duchess this morning. She misses me!
Dear Emma Rose,
We are having a good time and the weather has been wonderful. Gracie arrived on schedule and we have been on the lake every day.
The first day we found a nice secluded stretch of beach and spent the whole day playing in the water. When it was time to leave we discovered the boat had a dead battery. You should have seen us trying to flag down another boat for help. It was almost like Gilligan's Island.... Too funny, Emma. Anyway, eventually we were rescued and all was well.
Yesterday the Duke's truck broke down and today the toilet is plugged up in the RV. Like I said, we are having a great time! :)
Lady Cindy brought a surprise guest this year. His name is Hunter and he is a "fetcher". I have only seen him sleeping one time in five days! (We have a very poor internet connection so you will have to wait until I get home to see pictures of him. Sorry!)
Give Sir Bear and Lady Laura my love. I miss you terribly and can't wait to get home.
