La voleuse.


Sophie waits patiently for the zingueriste to answer his mobile phone. Then, while he's distracted, she rushes up the terrace stairs quick as a flash and liberates his sandwich. Dog and sandwich disappear into the orchard. The zingueriste follows.

Sophie has now earnt the sobriquet 'La voleuse'. Other less endearing terms are also employed .


Is it possible she's registered the enormity of her crime ? 


PS : Word of advice to French workmen. No matter how fit you are you'll never catch a PON girl with a cheese and ham croissant in her mouth.

    You bad girl, Sophie! How did you manage that - can you give me a few tips 'cos I'm not sure about the quick as a flash bit...? (I'm a slightly portly Labrador girl of mature years)..... Though I have to say that in the last photo you almost, and I do mean almost, look guilty, and that would never do!!!!

  2. Unguarded sandwiches are fair game in our opinion.

  3. Well obviously that ham was 'on the turn' - Well Done Sophie! - you've saved that workman from a dreadful bout of food poisoning.

  4. If there was one or two Golden's on Sophie's jury, they wouldn't convict her of her crime, they would agree with her defense that it was a true crime of opportunity--Having committed the same offense themselves!

    PS: Dogs can and do suffer from seasonal allergies -- Bathing really helps, but wiping Bob down with a clean damp towel after he's been out, in particular his feet does the trick too.

  6. One look at that face and no one could be angry with her.

  7. Our Willow is the same - she hovers around my husband when he makes his evening snack and when he goes to fetch something to wash it down, she swoops in. The look on her face is priceless as well...

  8. Unguarded sandwiches ? The zingueriste is obviously not a dog owner....

  10. When I saw the title I immediately smiled, and as I read your post my smile grew wider and wider...the illicit half croissant is no more, so what could be better than a full blown ham and cheese croissant? Oh Sophie, m├ęchante, and you ate all without sharing with your dear brother Bob.
    Angus, Sophie's face made me laugh, it is the same face employed by my Brownbie when he has been naughty too.
    I hope you were able to offer the zingueriste something tasty from the kitchen.
