The day Sophie's stitches come out. She's got an appointment at 8:20 this morning. This is forty minutes before the surgery officially opens. The vets think it may be 'calmer' for all involved if she's there before the crowds arrive.
After breakfast the family diva is positioned outside. A blanket over her shaved haunches. A chance to get some fresh air before seeing the vet. Sophie has the look of a dog who knows something is about to happen.
'The Font' heads off with Sophie in one car while Bob and Angus set off in the other for the little market town. This morning the tripe man has set up a stall outside the tabac and is stirring a large bowl of steaming offal. The smell of garlic fills the air. A lady and her husband watch intently. Can they possibly be thinking of having a portion of tripe for breakfast ? There is no doubting that Bob would have tripe for breakfast. He wears his angelic '' I is a sad orphan dog what has never been fed " look. He is 'hurried' along. At the bakers he gets some crumbly slivers of pastry. For Bob at least it's turning out to be the best day ever.
