No great thing is created suddenly.


We park on the top floor of the multi-storey car park. Bob and Sophie like the top floor of the car park. They have five flights of steps to sniff going down and five flights to sniff coming back up. They go up and down at the same 'enthusiastic' pace. Angus has got to an age where descending is done more enthusiastically than climbing.


In the market hall we come face to face with this. Bob wants to say hello. Sophie wonders if it's a snack. We hastily retrace our footsteps before there is a 'moment'. 


Darkness and solitude hold no fear for 'shy' Sophie. She's always the last to come inside at night. Perhaps this is a girl dog thing. Bob by contrast is most content when he's with us. I'm convinced he smiles when he's happy. 


Those little Monday morning things too small for a diary but too important to be completely overlooked.

  1. On trips to Paris, I am always struck by the number of people (including serious looking men) walking around with tiny little dogs. I'm guessing this is a less common sight in France profonde?
    Cheers, Gail.

    Very tiny dogs are popular here, too, because in town there are lots of apartment dwellers. Sophie is right to wonder if they might be a snack, and every time we see anything that small we always say "Oh look - breakfast" !

    1. But we know that PONs are suitable for apartment dwellers. Don't we?

  3. Merlin also agrees with Sophie. Unfortunately.
    Nothing like a smiling PON.
