The lure of rice cakes.
The dogs have never been given the option of climbing on the furniture. As a result they never have.
This morning 'The Font ' is surprised to find the female PON standing on the sideboard in the downstairs hallway. She's happily finishing off a pack of rice cakes that had been carefully put out of her reach.
From the scratch marks we deduce that the little angel has climbed on a chair then clambered from the chair onto the sideboard. A 'diva' moment follows when Sophie recognizes how high off the ground she is.
'The Font' will call a French polisher later this morning.
Sophie is told off. She feigns complete innocence. That well rehearsed ' I cannot tell a lie; it was my brother ' look.
We go to the supermarket. Angus wants to buy a case of this unusually named wine. He thinks it would be a sure fire ice breaker. 'The Font' mutters something about adolescent humour.
