A brief hiatus.


There must be something in the autumn air that triggers the PONs fur to go into growth mode. It seems as if it's grown a couple of inches in as many weeks. Bobs coat thick and luxuriant and soft.  Sophie's coat merely thick and luxuriant.


The mayor is an early visitor. He's come to take down the flags after yesterdays well attended Armistice ceremony.


There will be a brief halt in the blog. Angus has to go into hospital in London for a few days. This change to the routine is explained to the PONs. They will stay with 'The Font' until tomorrow night and then go into  the K-E-N-N-E-L-S for five or six days. Bob absorbs this information with all the  responsibility of a family fellow. Sophie is not impressed, she fears that the standard of cuisine will fall.

Your fans here on the Westcoast of Canada send the very best wishes for all to go well in hospital, and we look forward to your recovery and your return to your blog. You will be sorely missed. An understatement I am sure........felt by all of us who follow you with such pleasure each and
every day. I hope that BOB and SOPHIE will have understanding and patience........and that very soon a rousing, boisterous, and exuberant home coming will be had by all four of you. Warmest and very best regards to you ANGUS.

As residents of Washington, DC, your morning post is always a delightful reminder that human charm and civility still exists in some places of the world. Your daily commentary will be missed and we wish you a rapid and full recovery. We await eagerly for you and Bob to return to the drain pipe and to survey all that you both hold dear.
