Sophie still hasn't got the hang of the yogurt pot. She parades around with the empty carton willing it to refill itself. When that fails she sits in front of me with a look on her face that says " You fill it ! ".

We leave the PONs at home and head off to the little market town. Just as well they've been left behind. A man walking his Labrador, off the lead, has a fight with a man in a black track suit walking his Maltese on a lead. The Maltese owner shouts at the Labrador then kicks it. The Labradors owner is unhappy. A conversation along the lines of " You got a problem mate ? " 'You're dead right I've got a problem ! ' ensues and before you know it they're wrestling on the ground. People stop what they're doing and stare. Children scream. The two men have to be physically separated. The only ones unperturbed by this turn of events are the two dogs.

Back home in the village the sun shines, beer kegs are delivered to the Salle des Fetes for the rugby final and Bob and Sophie sit at the fence and howl at deer in the field below. 

Just another day with happy dogs. Too unremarkable for a diary but too important to go completely unrecorded.

Oh Sophie - it's those darned yogurt pots again, they really are cussed you know - they just won't refill themselves. You'll have to persuade "The Font" to buy a big pot of yogurt, and keep refilling your empty one - it's the only way.

I'm sure the Aussies wish the day had gone unrecorded.

After more than six months, George our black lab hasn't gotten the idea of the yogurt cups either, or licking a spoon -- sometimes you can't teach an old dog a new trick.

It looks like the only thing injured in the fight were egos.

When mum and I are out on a walk, we usually find that it is the owners who get tense, which then causes the dogs to get aggressive. It Is especially bad when the othe rowner has a small dog cos I weigh almost 70 lbs!!When mum takes me to the public dog pawk, we have absolutely no problems. All the doggies are off lease, and the owners keep an eye on them, and it goes geat. Wehave nobeen ther lately cos mum and I have not been e=feeling good, but we hope to start going again this weeil

keep on rocking bob and sofie

ttfn and oodle pip

Oh my goodness, if some man kicked my dog I'd wrestle him to the ground as well!
