Have you ever tasted Cheddar ?
Sunday morning. First stop the bakers. There are croissant crumbs for the angelic duo.
Then the cheesemongers. Some tiny slivers of alluring St. Nectaire. Bob does his soft shoe shuffle routine.
The cheesemonger has some of that most exotic of imports - Cheddar. He asks me if I've ever tried it.
Angus would spend longer in the wine merchants but Bob and Sophie consider it to be the dullest part of the Sunday morning shopping expedition. They fidget.
Back at home Bob is ready for whatever the day holds in store.
His sister is keen to get into the kitchen and watch lunch being prepared.
In the afternoon Bob and his master join the local farmers in the newly erected beer tent to watch Scotland against Australia. The game starts well. Sadly, the emphasis is on the word ''starts'. Bob chews contentedly on a piece of rope gifted by the man with the green Combine Harvester.
