Stealth PON style.

To the cheese lady. We buy some Salers and Chevres. Bob and Sophie sit patiently and get rewarded with a sliver of Brie. Bob kisses the cheese lady and gives her his plaintive '' I is an orphan dog wotz never been fed " look. He gets encouraged out of the market. 

Sophie closely observes the preparation of lunch. No shyness when it comes to monitoring what goes on in the kitchen. Ever dutiful big brother takes up his position by the front door and tries to look intimidating. Or he would if his eyelids could remain open.

Sophie spends her afternoon and evening chasing butterflies. PONs do not employ stealth when they hunt. The butterflies are completely untroubled. Sophie finally gives up and joins her brother at the front door. 

Difficult to say who's more jet lagged. Dogs or owners.

Here's an interesting clip from last nights French version of the X Factor showing you how to sing a song, charmingly, in English even if you don't speak a word of the language. Listen carefully to the diction : . The young man won. 


  1. Can't understand a word he says, but a beautiful voice. Not surprised he won. Nice to have you back.

  2. Surely Bob was saying "I is a starving dog whose sister eats all his food when he is consigned to kennels for ten days"...

  3. Perhaps it was the song....not so much the singer.

    We think chasing butterflies would be fun. We chase everything else.

  4. I am enjoying Sophie's cheese grin.
    Couldn't understand a word of his singing, but it was quite lovely. It did make me chuckle; I sing along to Julie Fowlis with gusto, not understanding a word of Scottish Gaelic. I wonder how ridiculous it sounds to knowledgeable ears?!
    Have a great day.

  5. Apple is chasing bumblebees.
    This cannot end well.

    What, no cats to chase - don't say they've all absconded while the happy duo have been in kennels ? Thought they would be taking over the garden and leaving their own unmistakable scent while the PON's were away! Chasing butterflies will do wonders for Sophie's waistline - she certainly looks very pleased with herself in the last photo!

  7. I've never seen Sophie smile so much - she's so happy to be home!
