Everyday life in a rickety old Scottish farmhouse with a very happy Polish Lowland Sheepdog. A record of those unimportant little things that are too important to be forgotten.

Bob is without a doubt way up there in the affability stakes. Always inquisitive, always happy, always on the look out for adventure, always attached to my ankles. A kind of 'wherever you go, I go' type of dog.
Sophie is rather more independent. A ' wherever I go, you can follow and adore me ' type of dog. Being the first female PON we've ever had we are unsure whether this is simply Sophie or relates to all female PONs.
Both PONs are equally intrigued by the twenty metre long, five metre wide, speed bump that has appeared in front of the war memorial. The district nurse wheels the Very Old Farmer out to see it. Bob christens it. Presumably, at some stage, someone will come and paint it.
Sophie rediscovers Furry Fox who has been enjoying a sabbatical in the laurel hedge. She has a satisfied ' just when you thought a day couldn't get any better ' look to her.

That's one very long speed hump. Don't forget the sign, Bob !
Good to see Furry Fox is still hanging on in there.
Bob has such kind eyes.
Distance kisses for that delicious nose.
Our girl Cherry is clearly more in the Sophie line. Before we got her, I recall reading that males tended to be more headstrong, but I suspect that was the same person who said that PONs make perfectly fine apartment dogs!
Furry fox is in good nick. Don't think he'd look that good here...
Hurrah for the return of furry fox....the morose builders will surely follow!
It's amazing what a sabbatical in the laurel hedge will do for a Furry Fox !
Whoever wrote that book on PONs saying they make great apartment dogs has a lot to answer for.
The sign has already been dethreated !
Hanging by a thread.
This is a lovely picture of Bob. I wonder if Sophie isn’t just Sophie. She exudes happiness with Furry Fox. Both pictures are guarantees for a smile whenever needed today.
Did you keep dogs before Wilf and Digby? We're they also PONs ?
I wonder if the personality differences hold up across breeds? Thinking of my own various dogs, it seems that the females were generally more of the Sophie style. Maybe it's the chromosomes.
Oh, that's a relief, we can all sleep easy in our beds....
I mean the dogs before Wilf and Digby, were they pons.
Even with Goldens, the girls are a little more independent and head-strong...divas I guess!
And if you get a moment, read my latest post. I think your new traffic calming zebra crossing makes sense compared to what my town did this week.
Yes. We've had PONs ever since we first saw them in a heavy snow storm in Warsaw in the early 80's. Wonderful with toddlers, enough boundless energy for teenagers, real 'family' dogs but wary of ' unintroduced' strangers.
I see what you mean.
