Variety is the soul of pleasure.

Sophie wanders in from the cherry orchard looking disheveled. A bad hair day. Bob follows her in. He rests his chin on my knee and gives me that  '' What are we going to do now ? " look . We play touch rugby. 

Eagle eyed observers will note the lump missing from the fur on Sophie's chest. She was enjoying a gentle hair trim when a group of pilgrims, wooden staffs click-click-clicking on the tarmac, walked by. Sophie exploded off the table, clippers flying after her. End result - a less than even haircut.

Sophie's brilliantly shiny nose, like Bob's ever wagging tail, one of the seven canine wonders of the world. 

Until last night I'd never heard this played.  -http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cxlf-ZmE8JI


  1. A beautiful piece of music, 3 Pon noses and a lovely Sophie selfie.
    Happy Tuesday!

  2. Oh Sophie, it's just too bad isn't it? I see you too suffer from humans who are incapable of anticipating when you are about to make a sudden movement while you are having your furs trimmed. Me too! One ends up looking so unkempt - and then they go are blame it on us…
    Toodle pip!

  3. Do you prefer it to Vaughan Williams' Lark Ascending?

  4. Dis are why I don't let nobody trim my furs, BOL!

  5. Sophie has the look of a PON that's had a fun filled day !

  6. Sophie sets the style trend...I bet other PON divas will be wearing that hair style by the end of the summer.
    A wonderful piece of music...I could almost imagine it being played on a harp...Brownie enjoyed it too as he relaxed under my desk completely comatose under the influence of the music.

  7. Sophie has discovered that there are some things that are more important than sitting still for a good haircut!

    I think The Lark is an exceptionally beautiful and sad melody; my favorite from 'Farewell to St. Petersburg.'

  8. That IS some bad hair...

    XXXOOO Bella & Roxy

  9. Ouch! That sounds painful, Sophie!

    That is a beautiful piece of music!

  10. Hair grows! All will be well.
