Being yourself is better than being perfect.



Bob arrives at the front door with a muddy nose. He looks guilty.


Sophie tries to pretend that nothings happened. The lumps of clay hanging from her fur suggest otherwise.


Angus marvels at the size of the hole that's been dug in the lawn.

Bathed and toweled dry the PONs are loaded in the back of the car. Sophie is wearing her patented  ' I cannot tell a lie. It was my brother ' look. Angus points out that in a court of law the evidence would be stacked against her.

So begins a Thursday morning with two happy dogs.

  1. Being yourself or being perfect?
    Not mutually exclusive for some of us, surely?

  2. They wanted it to be a surprise. They know you like golf. Who needs Jack Nicklaus.

  4. We haven't the slightest chance at being perfect, so we'll stick to being ourselves. Love Bob's muddy nose.

  9. Sophie looks as though she got a henna treatment around her mouth. She seems to pass Bob up when it comes to getting dirty but they both have looking innocent down.

    1. Looks like henna but it's actually deeply, deeply ingrained mud.

    1. Would angry make any difference ? Resignation is the universal PON owner trait.
