The release of positive endorphins .
From the Wikipedia entry on PONs : Polish Lowland Sheepdogs are stable and self-confident. PONs adapt well to various conditions, and are popular as companion dogs for apartment dwellers in their native Poland. PONs require a moderate amount of exercise daily.
Angus and 'The Font' read this and wonder aloud about the mental state of Polish apartment dwellers and what constitutes a 'moderate amount of exercise '.
A trip in the car, a visit to the cafe, two long walks, a chat with the Post Lady and the Mayor, and yet the very second we turn our backs .....
Perhaps the Wikipedia entry has been written by the sort of people who write guide books for foreign visitors to America with advice that says : '' On the New York subway always turn to your neighbours introduce yourself and shake their hands. New Yorkers are noted for their relaxed demeanour and will be particularly keen to see your family photos and hear about your hobbies ''.
Those of a nervous disposition may wish to look away now. The mud trail up the side of the bath hints at the excitement that occurred when a sodden Sophie jumped out of the bath and went careering through the house.
The PONs end their day as they started it - content. We end our day exhausted. Must be something to do with the way dogs release positive endorphins into their owners bloodstream.
