Read the book.
'' Intelligent with a good memory, agile and diligent, and especially calm and gentle. An ideal dog for apartment dwellers. "
Angus reads the description in the dog book, turns to look at his companion, who is currently chasing a non-existent squirrel, and wonders if the author of the article on Polish Lowland Sheepdogs has ever actually met one.
Sophie joins 'The Font' in the kitchen. Bob is loaded, noisily, into the back of the car in readiness for our morning visit to the bakers. When we get there he tries to walk through the closed shop door rather than wait for it to be opened. This might best be described as a demonstration of 'understated intelligence'.
Bob gives the attractive young lady behind the bakers counter his best heart throb routine. This entails him sitting staring, unblinkingly, at her until she gets the message that he'd like some choux pastry. He gets some. The dog book needs to add 'charm' to its list of PON virtues.
We eye up a pineapple cake in the window but settle on two coffee eclairs for lunch.
