Some cause happiness wherever they go ; others whenever they go.








The weather continues to be unseasonably wet. '' It's dreadful M'Ongoose. This is the most rain we've had since the spring of 1940 '' says a wellington boot wearing Madame Bay.  Madame Bay is waging a war against mud. Bob and Sophie bring it inside . Madame Bay mops it up. Madame Bay is losing the battle .

The two little angels spend the wet afternoon in the kitchen. ' The font ' works around them. They look expectantly at the oven door . To their surprise a pair of reflected shaggy dogs look back . Bob  gets told off when he tries to scramble on top of the range to say hello to them. Sophie takes his place by the oven door. She has a well practised '' Oh Bob ! You are bad but I'm perfect " look on her face.

  1. Maybe your next purchase could be something like a pair of good sized lambs they could put their herding instincts to work on. Just a thought.

  2. A PONder from the Westcoast of Canada: Given that the pups have been with you for well over a month now - exactly when was it that SOPHIE discovered that all goods things come from behind the oven door?
    And just a wee mention.......COULD THEY POSSIBLY BE ANY CUTER!!!!!!!!

  4. We thought it was just typical....Sophie waiting to see what comes out of the oven, and Bob--typical male--wondering how the thing works!

  6. Oh what joy to have your own personal plant pot for digging around in.
    The photos in front of the oven are cute and so very funny at the same time.
    Bob and Sophie really make a great start to my day.

  11. I don't think Bob was trying to scramble on top of the oven. I believe he was trying to figure out which button to press to open it. Sophie obviousy whispered to him, and told him to do it.

  13. Bob and Sophie are convinced that if they sit in front of the oven long enough, croissants will magically appear. C'est vrai, n'est-ce-pas?

  14. Those pictures of them waiting for a treat from the oven is absolutely precious! They also look like they could be waiting for a bus!

    Clever PONs!

  15. Sophie looks as if her coat is turning white faster than Bob's; he seems still to have a bit of faux-Dalmatian about him. Will they both eventually turn all white (generic term, not specific color), or white except for the head or ears?
