Home alone.

A day at home with the 'little angels'. Angus plans on working. Bob and Sophie have other ideas. They appear at the office window and engage in a concentration destroying conversation about life. Angus gives up the idea of working.

Holes are dug. Low hanging branches chewed. Bob finds an old root. His sister wants it. He refuses to relinquish it. She finally grabs his tail. Bob relinquishes it. He then tells the whole universe about the injustice of having a sister.

By mid-afternoon coats and mud are indistinguishable. Time for a grooming. Sophie leaps on the table and liberates a small tub of kibbles. Bob follows her. Grooming two dogs on the same table, at the same time, proves to be more difficult than one would imagine. Through it all they maintain a constant, cheerful, dialogue . 

Sophie has a lengthy, post-grooming, drink. She then bestows an enthusiastic kiss on her groomers ear. Amazing how water retentive, and cold, a PON beard can be.  Bob races off in pointless ( and noisy)  pursuit of a black bird.

Ten at night. They fall into a deep, content, sleep. A good day. As all one year old PON's know 'The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper '.


  1. But Angus, the kiss from a water/mud fills beard has so much more impact!
    Toodle pip!
    Bertie (who also has a plenty of water retentive facial fuzz and a fondness for licking human ears).

  2. Now, that was much better than working, wasn't it...

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  3. It sounds like a great day was had by all!
    Nothing like a kiss from a PON.
    Picture 5 a classic.

  4. Angus, this was the best post ever!!
    The photos are the cutest of the cutest......what a wonderful day for all of you.
    Enjoy those kisses....wet or other wise....they are all from the heart.

  5. It sounds like my day yesterday only I had the snow, and yes my dryer ran all day.

  6. It sounds like a perfect day to me! Who needs to get work done?

  7. The photo of them peering at you from outside, framed by the window is the best!

  8. They took you away from your world of men in dark suits and to their world of magic things. Their Angus, a boy again.

  9. You should invite the men in dark suits to come home with you, meet Bob and Sophie. The world's problems would be solved then and there.

  10. The little darlings looking through your window are priceless.

  11. I agree with Emm! The pictures of the kids today are Wonderful! The dark suit guys wouldn't stand a chance!

    Thank You from a Cold Ohio,
    Yogi & his mom

  12. It's always the "Are you doing something interesting?" look that gets you!

  13. Those two at the window are irresistible. How do you get any work done?
