Mystery solved.

Buy a bag of Pedigree Chum kibbles and get a blow up dog for free. Who could refuse ?

We try out a new cafe. I'm a little worried that Sophie might have a 'moment'  but she settles down under a table, behind Bob, and dozes. The waiter brings a bowl of water.

The lady in the newsagent has had a new delivery of books.

Our late afternoon walk. There are lots of deer about. Bob is put on his lead. He turns and lets me know I really should try to keep up.

Oh, and regarding yesterdays canine 'mishap '. We usually buy bird food in two kilo bags. The farm outlet has sold out. ' We've got  a couple of twenty five kilo bags of sunflower seeds left over from last years harvest ' says the manager. He hauls out of the stockroom two enormous sacks. When we get home Angus stacks them on the downstairs terrace. He then forgets all about them. Bob and Sophie, or more particularly Sophie, love Sunflower seeds. The temptation is simply too great. Both sacks are savaged and opened. What she can't eat she scatters all over the terrace floor. The wild birds are very happy with this arrangement.

And this should be a lesson to all. Never drink and try to move a sofa :

Did Sophie eat both bags? You'll have the most wonderful display of sunflowers this year.

You may find impromptu sunflowers in the summer.

I'm glad you told us that the inflatable thing was a dog. I'm not sure I would have guessed.
Cheers! Gail.

What would one do with an inflatable dog? Not much good for Bob and Sophie unless it could throw a furry fox.

Have never heard of dogs liking sunflower seeds, especially with the husk still on. Thankfully, our
supermarkets all carry birdseed in reasonably sized bags.
Loved that video, made all the funnier by the fact that I couldn't understand a word they were saying.

I'm afraid an inflatable chum would have an extremely brief friendship with Bob and Sophie.

Sunflower seeds contains lots of vitamins B and E as well as the good fatty acids. Maybe Sophie is looking for some kind of nutrients.
Or maybe she's just being Sophie. Enjoy the extra flowers when they appear.

Thank goodness it was only sunflower seeds that were discovered and consumed by the Diva.
