Inexperience is an asset. Embrace it.
Day 5. It rains . Sophie discovers the joys of wallowing on her back in mud. Bob sits on the peonies and watches her . The house stops merely looking like a war zone and starts to look like a muddy war zone.
Another trip in the car. This time to the vets. Bob and Sophie's paperwork - vaccination certificates, pet passport, chip details - all in order. They briefly meet the chief vet who gives them a quick once over. Both take this in their stride.
The post lady comes with the parcels from America. She apologizes for taking nearly a week to deliver them. '' My vans giving me problems. They're thinking of getting me a new Fiat ". Two very chic toile squeaky bones from Pamela ( www.fromthehouseofedward.blogspot.com ) and a book on helping a shy dog adjust to new surroundings from Kim (www.lifeatgoldenpines.blogspot.com ) . Thank you both .
For Bob and Sophie an afternoon spent chasing each other round the garden. Endless tugs of war with an old toy they find on the lower terrace. House training ( touch wood ) settled. Nipping under control. They are revelling in each others company and quite simply loving every second of every minute of every hour. Life is brimming over .
