Freedom is a state of mind.

Bob and Sophie ignore the two foals in the meadow. When we get to the field with the herd of calves they stand transfixed. Must be something to do with equine v. bovine scents.

The cafe under the arcades has re-opened. The beer and absinthe crowd greet us enthusiastically. The coffee remains undrinkable but the welcome is warm and the bowl of water and illicit half croissant are the real reason for going there. Both PON's are delighted normal service has been resumed.

Still no news about the Very Old Farmer . We hear sounds of sawing coming from his house. The sons car remains parked outside.

This was interesting .How many of us have asked this about other dog owners ? :


  1. The eyes are the window to the soul (dogs and humans). How unscientific of me.
    I also think we are all more telepathic (for want of a better description) than can be currently measured and animals, especially dogs bring that connection out in us.

  2. The one and only time I had a perm (in the 80's) a friend told me I looked so much like my dog (standard poodle) that I never did it again.
    The worst part was when I looked in the mirror at about 4.30pm and found I had a piece of dog biscuit stuck in the curls. The result of hugging my dog at lunchtime!

    1. Dog biscuits and perms are best not combined in one sentence !

  3. Interesting article, I wonder what the conclusion would be for owners of PON's and other breeds where you can't see their eyes?

    Good to read that cafe under the arcades has re-opened. We have a little cafe in our town that isn't the best for coffee either, but it's the heart of the town.

  4. Well obviously one should bark at calves but not foals. Gosh, Bob and Sophie, humans can be clueless at times can't they?
    Toodle pip!

  5. Yeah!!!! the cafe under the arcades has reopened...I know Bob and Sophie are in heaven again.
