Oh, dear.  Unfortunately, when the idea of presenting Pete to Your 
Excellencies was introduced, the subject animal was not present, and the 
previous owner did not mention the fact that Pete was in no condition to 
perform his assigned duties.  If I had know about the situation, I assure 
you that steps would have been taken to retify this ;-).

But considering what those steps would have to have been, maybe it is 
just as well...
