The peace of a quiet sunny afternoon broken by the arrival of the heating oil man. Bob and Sophie greet him with their ' intruder alert ' song .
The nice young farmer drives a herd of cows from the field by the crossroads to a field by the other crossroads. Bob and Sophie stand on their hind legs, front paws resting on the garden wall, watching the cows amble by. They announce the herds arrival with a rendition of their '' you ain't going to believe this but these dogs are huge " song. This is like the ' intruder alert ' song but with an extra 'oo' in the w-oo-oo-oo -f .
For her upset tummy Sophie is put on a diet of rice, diced chicken and fromage frais. This mean that Bob is also on a diet of rice, chicken and fromage frais. Sophie adores it. Bob has a hungry look on his face that seems to say ' there's nothing to that fancy foreign food . Give me a plate of duck and beef kibbles any day '.
