Sophie adores being groomed. Bob does his best to become invisible. The promise of a rice cake causes him to break cover.
By 10.30 they're looking presentable. They are rewarded with a long walk through the fields to the waterfall. En route Sophie finds a plump dead mole. This becomes her companion for the rest of the morning. When we return home 'The Font' lets out an involuntary sigh when the heavily gummed mole is dropped, proudly, on the freshly washed kitchen floor.
For Sophie this really is the best day ever.
