Anyone who says sunshine brings happiness has never danced in the rain.
During my absence Bob and Sophie have not been well behaved.
3.30 am on the first night Bob starts howling. 'The font' gets up to let him out. From the noise he's making it's clearly an urgent matter. What does he do ? He rushes out of the door and positions himself in front of the garden gate. He then refuses to move. A very definite '' I've lost one of the flock and had better go and find him ! " defiance. Bob declines to come back inside. Finally, 'the font' goes to get a rice cake from the kitchen. This does the trick. Sophie sleeps on. She has a '' my flock can wait until the morning " approach to herding. She does however wake long enough to let it be known that she too wants a rice cake.
