Too Bad Your Children Aren't This Well Behaved
Yes, that's Lucy, my Yorkshire terrier, perfectly quiet and still, on my lap under the table at Kate Mantilini...


Very good-natured of her, considering what it takes to sneak her in.

Bleeuugghhhhh.... in general I'm all in favour of importing Parisian habits to this benighted country, but dogs in restaurants is the exception....

Oh Amy, admit it: you just need a bikini wax.

Nancy, thanks a lot for making me snort coffee up my nose!

And Stu, my dog is cleaner than you are, and better coiffed, too! If it were truly about health standards, there are a few people I've seen dining recently who should be tied to parking meters outside restaurants.

Love the black leather rocker look, Amy!

Thank you, darling. Although I don't want to give anyone the wrong impression with that photo -- that I've suddenly started getting in the bad habit of leaving the house without putting on an evening dress first.

Perhaps for those dog-friendly restaurants, you can invest in of these.

Alan, I am simply horrified and appalled. And, although Lucy is more of a girly girl dog than a motorcycle bitch, I'm sure she wouldn't snub her nose at one of their other selections. I just spent 10 minutes shopping all their styles, uh, I mean, being horrified at the concept.
