Channeled mischief.



Another grey day. No sign of the kitchen fitters. Instead, we are joined by Caroline, the unhappy cleaning lady. Today she is in one of her stomping, slamming and muttering moods. This is the cue for Angus to head off with the PONs to the stream. While I get ready, the PONs very sensibly, wait outside on their 'perch'.



After an hour of ferreting in hedgerows Sophie ends up looking frightful. Her appearance isn't improved by a 'robust' game of tug-of-war with her brother.


In the afternoon the family princess heads off in the car with 'The Font'. She returns to find Bob standing at the front door with HER toy in his mouth. Sophie expresses her displeasure - forcefully.


That wonderful age where both dogs and owners know their respective roles. You could call it living with 'channeled mischief '. Or, perhaps that should be ' partially channeled mischief '.

    Was that just a big yawn from Sophie, or was she saying something extremely rude to Bob ? He's a brave boy when she's away.....

  4. It's lovely to see them playing so happily together. Something silly old Merlin has missed out on.

    1. Having two PONs makes training them difficult but on the other side there's never separation anxiety and they're more than willing to spend an hour together in the garden. Guess it's six of one half a dozen of the other.

  5. I too would head out of the house when Caroline arrives...can't deal with the bad energy.
    Love the photos today..."the PON table" is becoming more popular everyday.
