I'm not telling you it's going to be easy, I'm telling you it's going to be worth it.





Bright sunshine. Just like a Scottish summers day - not too hot, not too cold. Perfect weather for long walks with the irrepressible PON duo. Around us the fields freshly ploughed and sown. Spring on the way.

After our morning trip into town, Bob goes in search of worms. He digs half a dozen holes along the drive. Each time he finds a worm he happily brings it over to show me. He then turns his attention to repositioning a standard rose . Finally, he empties the flowerpots of soil and whatever might have been growing in them. Time for a nap.

Sophie loves prawn risotto more than anything else. We know this because she's clambered head first into the dishwasher looking for the Pyrex bowl that held the prawns. Her tail left sticking out. ''Outrageous" says ' the font ' before dissolving into laughter. When it comes to food Sophie is completely fearless. 

Perhaps today's header should be the motto of all dog owners .

  1. Bob likes worms? Send him to Murrayfield!
    Sophie clearly has more sophisticated tastes.

  4. I had to laugh at the dishwasher incident as well, brought back lovely memories of my little Cav doing the same.
    As we walking in to pick her up from the kennels on her 'gotcha' day, she and the pack were being extracted from the dishwasher and she never grew out of the desire to help with the washing up !

    1. Been there. I've wondered if Sophie has some Cavalier in there somewhere. Totally food-centric.

  5. Tell Sophie she can head over here.... I have some prawn crackers she can have....she does have quite a discerning taste doesn't she?
    Bob and his worms.....how adorable unless he takes to sampling them.

  6. I have to admire Sophie's pluck! And Bob might be trying to make a fisherman of you...

    1. If only we could train him to save the worms as bait rather than swallow them .

  8. In the first picture: Is that a mountain range off in the distance? If so, its name? Snow peaked? How far away from you?

    1. Well spotted. The camera on the i-Phone isn't great for landscape shots. The mountains are the Pyrenees - 60 or so miles away .
