The adventure begins
At last it's time to collect Bob and Sophie. Bob sees the car arrive and hides under the table. Sophie disappears behind the sofa. The farmers wife fishes them out and places them in a large cardboard box. This is then carried , through the chickens and goats in the courtyard , to the back of the car. The two small heads that peer out from inside accept their fate in silence. Sophie settles down under Bob. Stoic PON's.
Home after a long journey. Bob bounces off into the garden, tail wagging like a metronome. His sister soon joins him. An hour of carefree tumbling and rolling in the grass. Sophie then devours a large meal. She finishes her kibbles first and wanders over to help Bob finish his . Perhaps she won't be so shy after all.
One thirty in the morning. A loud yelp. Angus carries one , then the other, down to the front door. A determined look that says '' Surely you can't expect me to go out there. It's dark ! ". Two puddles in the hallway. So much for house training. Sophie now asleep across my left slipper, Bob across my right. Sophie ever so gently snoring.
Special getting to know you days.
