That time again.
Dry and bright with a gentle breeze. A perfect morning for getting Sophie on the garden table for some protracted and much needed coat maintenance.
Within thirty second she's on her back and asleep.
Every other PON we've had viewed grooming as the canine equivalent of root canal treatment - without anaesthetic. Sophie loves it.
Post grooming a sprightly Polish Lowland Sheepdog lady is taken into the valley for a well deserved walk. She returns to the house looking as if she's never been near a comb or brush in her life.
Down to Toulouse to have the Volvo serviced. They send me an e-mail video ahead of times with instructions. Wear a mask , bring your own pen, turn off the aircon and lower all the windows. At the garage I see one person, the man behind the desk, who gave me the ( disinfected ) keys to the courtesy car. The steering wheel and gear lever were covered in sterilized gauze.Even a month ago this procedure would have seemed bizarre : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NZ9Iq2mAcY0&t=14s
