Puppy 7

Name: Cloverbud's Sweet Violet

Black, female.

At the age of 12, Julie performed in a revue called 'Starlight Roof'. on the grand opening night (October 23rd 1947) her mother was walking a young Julie towards the theatre when she found an English flower lady in a convenient corner of
Leicester Square. Julie's mother wanted to buy her daughter "some flowers for luck", but when the flower lady found out that it was the little girls grand opening night she stated that she was "giving them to'er for good luck". Needless to say the song she sang was a show stopper and violets took on a new meaning to Julie that night!! :-)

*NB (an extract of the actual 'show-stopper'song she sang at this show is played
as background music for this page!)
