There's nowhere like home.
Sophie flies out of the pen and into the back of the car at the speed of light. Her feet barely touch the ground. Ever affable Bob carefully says farewell to each of the other dogs before he too joins us. '' It's only polite to say goodbye". Eyes bright, fur silky. So much for any worries that they might not be well looked after.
The PON duo spend their day staring into mid air. That mind in neutral state dogs get into when they're exhausted but too excited to go to sleep.
Bob communes with nature. Not even the wrens that are nesting in the wisteria goad him into action.
The eagle eyed will discern that Miss Sophie has not lost weight in the kennels. In fact she seems to have gained about 5 lbs. The reasons for this are best not dwelt on. Bob by contrast looks super svelte.
The family princess spends much of the evening trying to catch butterflies in her mouth. Coordinated she ain't. The butterflies have nothing to fear. Sophie is delighted with her ferocious face.
A day for re balancing.
