Josephine.





After the rain of the last few days a beautiful clear morning. Up and out early and off in the car for an amble by the river. A fancily coiffured poodle with the rather unlikely name of Josephine was being walked along the path just ahead of us. Needless to say Wilf was immediately smitten by this vision of French loveliness and trotted off after her like a love struck puppy. Sadly, Josephine was less taken with the somewhat dishevelled, fluffily white creature with a large black nose that was in hot pursuit. Our chivalrous troubador was greeted with a growl and a snap.

" Maybe she'll be in better mood tomorrow ?" Wilf seemed to say as he settled down under the cafe table while waiting for his bowl of water and portion of croissant from the peroxide haired waitress. 'Maybe' I said tickling him behind the ear. Hope springs eternal.

  1. Wait.... PORTION of a croissant??? What is that waitresses name? From now on, only entire fruit filled pastries will do! :)

  3. Well you can inform Wilf that one of the variant forms of Josephine is 'Fifi'. She certainly sounds more like a 'Fifi' and after all, I suppose girls are supposed to play hard to get anyway...

    Really wonderful to see that he is in good form and if chasing after 'Fifi's' is still part of the average day - wonderful! :)

  5. I am reminded of your earlier description of Wilf. 'The designated optimist'. So lovely.

  6. I'm sure she'll be in a better mood tomorrow Wilfee. Girls always love to play hard to get.

  9. I have no doubts that you will soon be playing Napoleon to your Josephine. She was immune to his foreigner charms at first as well. Maybe some torrid love notes/ pee-mails are called for?

  10. That's just what i was thinking about, Napoleon and Josephine ! Don't worry boy, she is surely a shy girl... And don't forget that you are surely one of the most lovely boy of your country... I am pretty sure she fall in love, but you know girls...
    Love you Wilfee, cuddles and bisouuuuuus.

  11. *snicker* I'm not surprised that Wilf has more sophisticated tastes than Digby after that food he's been eating! I recall Digby had a little romance with a rather surly little gal down the road before he got sick.

  12. In defence of poodles, I would like to say that not all are the same. Lulu loves all dogs and would adore Wilf for his sense of fun and charming personality !!

  13. As the song goes, "Unrequited love's a bore... and I've got it pretty bad. But for someone you adore, it's a pleasure to be sad..."

    We've all been there, dear friend with the big black nose!!! Thank doG for a bit of croissant to heal the hurt!

    xxx Your pal, Jake, who still remembers his first (unrequited) love: Lucy the Beagle whom he met on a walk when he was just a puppy and left him behind with a sassy wag of her tail

  14. She's just playing "hard to get", Wilf. I suggest returning to the same place at the same time sometime soon. A handsome dude like you will win her over in no time!

  17. You're right, perhaps tomorrow would be better. Maybe she was just shy. How could she not see how handsome you are. Just not possible. I see you both sharing a croissant soon.

  19. Awwww, how could she not love a face like that?? Silly Josephine. That's alright Wilf, keep on going. You are just lovely.

    Love your pals from Canada,

  20. Wilf,

    You are too good for the likes of Josephine! ;)

    Blessings and Love,

  21. Wilfie: Would the puppies be PONdoodles or PoPONS ? Just think, white curly hair stocky puppies, with poodle and PON traits. If she 'dissed' ya, ignore her the next time. There was a black poodle at the groomers today, who was too 'smart' for me--or so he thought !!!

  22. Honestly, I truly do think that Josephine was playing hard to get. I can't figure out why else anyone would turn Wilf down.

  23. Wilf-could you possibly be any cuter? I just don't understand a woman being immune to your charms!

  24. Ignore her, Wilf - she doesn't know a good dog when she sees one!

  26. Ah, Wilfee - l'amour! You know how these French ladies have raised it to an art form. The dance is half the fun. Dance, little buddy, dance!
