The Lurchers Meet the Queen

Nicki and two of her greyhound/deerhound hybrid lurchers met Queen Elizabeth I on Saturday, at Sebastopol’s mini-Renn-Faire, the Shakespeare Festival. The Queen demonstrated that she was as good with dogs as she was with the men in her life.

The two-day themed event is a fund-raiser for the Sebastopol schools. There is music, drama, comedy, juggling, magic, dancing and of course the royal court. Fairgoers can learn about crafts like spinning, weaving, soap-making, watch fencing exhibitions and learn about falconry.
