Bob's Thursday morning PONder.

The torrential rain stops. Bob and Sophie are allowed out of the house. ' The font ' shares their delight. 

Our PON duos day is spent chasing field mice in the barn. Field mice are small and fast and can get into tiny spaces that no PON could ever dream of getting into. These factors in no way diminish Bob and Sophie's enjoyment. Belief in their hunting skills, despite a singular lack of success, is undiminished.

As all PON's know "Life is too short to be anything but happy. 


  1. Oh I do so wish I could come and give the 'little angels' a hunting lesson, terrier style.
    Toodle pip!

  2. Ahhhhhh, but the fun is in the chase. They'll be able to have more fun in the future.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  3. Much as I love the PONs,with a nom-de-plume like mine I'm on the side of the field mice!

  4. Oh Bob and Sophie - if you lived where we are you would not Think of chasing anything !
    It is 43c right now and we do not want to go anywhere but inside with the air conditioner on and watching The Australian Open Tennis !
    Well, we are Pekingese :)
    Kisses ,

  5. I love Bob's PONder for very true... Life is too short to be anything but happy.
    Mice chasing is lots of fun......keeps them both occupied and they don't have time to miss you while you're away Angus.

  6. Oh those devious mice hiding from the PONs.
    I do remember one dropping from the roof of our garage, straight in front of Mia, it was slightly stunned, recovered itself, then ran off before Mia had even worked out what had happened. Maybe Bouncing Bertie could do some online hunting lessons ?

  7. Bob and Sophie - You have an unquenchable love of life.

  8. I'm betting that one of these days they're going to perfect their hunting skills and the mice won't be so lucky!

  9. oh angus. my heart in my throat.
    that first picture of bob is like looking into the face of my beloved zeke.
    give them both a huge hug from me! and they make me happy just by BEING! xo

  10. Wonderful photos! Never tire of seeing these two characters!
