Dinner time. Just as the roast pork emerges from the oven Sophie appears in the kitchen. She's clearly very pleased with herself as she's doing that soft shoe shuffle PONs do when they're having a 'joy' overload. She's tripping over her paws with happiness.
The source of this 'joy' is soon apparent. She drops a dead rodent on the kitchen floor . She then takes a step back and stares at it, longingly. The treasure has been carefully carried from the barn, through the orchard, across the courtyard and into the house. 'The Fonts' cheerful 'What have you got there Sophie?' segues into silence. Angus has a little black plastic bag in his pocket. This is immediately put to use and the deceased animal transported quickly and efficiently outside.
Dinner is delayed while the Lutheran side of the family mops the floor . Sophie, is of course beside herself with happiness. She has made a real contribution to her herds welfare.
