The first committee meeting.





Sophie and 'the font' head off across the village green to the first meeting of the Beautiful Bye Ways Committee. Two items on the agenda. 1) The 2014 Pottery Fair and 2) the Floral Village Competition. The full cast of characters are there. The little lady with the broad brimmed purple hat, the woman with the Marge Simpson beehive hairdo , the man in the day glo jacket who does 'interventions', various farmers, the depressive physiotherapist and Madame Bay in a red velvet turban secured at the front by a large piece of purple costume jewellery.

Faced with an hour and a half of tedium most dogs would curl up asleep under a table. Not Sophie. She wanders across the floor of the Salle des Fetes and leaps up onto the small wooden stage . She then turns on her side, settles down and starts snoring. At nine thirty she wakes up, leaps off the platform and wanders back over to 'the font'. This proves to be an excellent time for 'the font' to make excuses and leave. Sophie has already learnt that a PON girl should be two things : Classy and Fabulous.

  1. Well done Sophie. Classy and fabulous indeed. Were you the only pup present, or did you have to share the stage with a Jack Russell (heaven forbid)?

  5. Yes, classy and fabulous, and it's all about perfect timing as my southern upbringing taught me, and my mother used to say, 'a lady always knows when to leave.' ...whatever that means...

  8. Last night, I watched the video of the PON class from Westminster. I'd wager that not one of those pampered pooches could dig up a rose bush with anything approaching the dexterity of the fabulous Mlle Sophie.

  9. Sophie already knows how those meetings go on and on, so she did the right thing in order that the Font could excuse herself and head on home....good girl Sophie...your timing was dead on.
