We're up at first light. While Bob and Sophie have breakfast Angus loads the bags into the back of the car and prints out the boarding passes. Afterwards there's just enough time for a quick walk across the village green before we have to be on our way to the kennels and the airport. We'll be in Scotland until Sunday.
Bob, tail wagging twenty to the dozen, is gloriously unaware that there's a change to his daily routine. The same cannot be said for his sister. Sophie has a canniness that belies her tender years. She is doing an impersonation of Miss Glum.
'' It'll be a great adventure " I find myself saying to 'the font' and Bob and Sophie as we head off.
