WITH word of the Pattens' delinquent canine pet Whisky's snap-happy ways now spread abroad, Keeping Posted has been receiving concerned inquiries from a few recent visitors to Government House.

They claim to have had their ankles nipped at by the fearsome duo of Whisky and Soda. And the dreaded ''R'' word came up in their worried conversation with us.

The Keeping Posted medical consultant informs us that unless they are walking around foaming at the mouth and living in mortal fear of water they are probably all right.

Meanwhile, Alice Patten, who was left behind by mum and dad to oversee the affairs of Government House - though not, we believe, of the Government as well - while they were away in London, now has a crisis on her hands.

And the poor girl has to cope with homework as well.
