The Haunted House.
The PONs leap into the back of the car. Bob has started to get wise to the fact that if he puts his carrot down it disappears. This morning he's determined to hold onto it.
Sophie continues to be a keen 'recycler'. We've tried everything including pineapple in her kibble. All to no avail. The timorous wee thing of three years ago has turned into the sort of girl who'd kill for a rice cake. We've now moved onto Copronat. Three days in and so far it is having exactly zero effect.
Lamb on a rope has been recovered from its special place in the laurel hedge. Sophie settles down with it for a long conversation in the warmth of the sun. Bob wisely keeps his distance.
The circus has come to town. This morning it's eerily deserted. Bob christens the dodgems and then the Hall of Mirrors before finishing off with a flourish at the Haunted House .
Sophie wanders into the office for a chat. Bob will accept tickles at any time of the day. Sophie lets you know when SHE's ready for attention. I can't help but notice the family princess has large patches of dried mud around her nose. It would seem lamb on a rope has been reburied.
Serious men in dark suits phone from New York. '' Sorry to bother you at home on Presidents Day " says the most senior. Angus has no idea what Presidents Day is. Sophie turns on her back, squirms wildly, then falls asleep and snores. If only the men in dark suits knew.
