Off into town with Wilf for the early morning shopping. Our regulation coffee and bowl of water at the cafe under the arcades. Upmarket and pricey Easter eggs have appeared in the newsagents. The family fellow waits patiently outside the bakers while I pick up a raspberry tart for lunch. The first fresh raspberries of the season. The smell of newly baked croissant and dessert has an enervating effect on the old fellow. On the way back to the car he trots alongside as if he hadn't a care in the world. On the journey home Wilf has an expectant look on his face that says " It is often easier to ask for forgiveness than to ask for permission ". After breakfast, excitement over, he falls asleep on his back in the courtyard. From the happy, gentle, snoring emanating from his direction we can safely assume he's dreaming of life in a bakery.
Such a joy to see him sleep like that in the courtyard. I feel peace when i look at his pictures. The fruit tarts are most delicious. I dream of life in bakeries sometimes.. heheheReplyDelete
Raspberries of the season! We just got another 5 inches of snow with winds topping at 54 mph. Where in the world did spring go?ReplyDelete
I always say a happy dog is one that can sleep on its back, and Wilf is certainly happy. So good to see, considering what else is going on with him.ReplyDelete
I just love looking at your beautiful photos! Your face is so expressive and lovely! And your town and surroundings so pretty! I am happy you had such a delightful morning! I hope your dreams were sweet and peaceful.
Hope Wilf's contented look as he wiggles on the gravel means his eye is improving and he's feeling no pain. Raspberry tart is safe for doggies to eat, right? Croissants are for sure.ReplyDelete

Hey there Mongoose...ReplyDelete
I remember that 'pose' so well with Max. Serenity, comfort, pleasure and submission, all mixed up in a singular, lengthy 'lying on the back' stunt.
Your shops are so enticing. I wouldn't be able Please know that you folk are constantly in my thouhts as you fight this battle with Wilf.

We always enjoy those pictures of the inverted PON.ReplyDelete

Wilfie you look adorable - I wish my Foxiie would be happy with the bakery odours - I have a Romeo and Juliet drama with the neighbour dog - he is so in love that he roars and complains all day... gave him his double dose of heart tablet... he is 13... hope he is back to normal soon!!!! Love from Southern Italy Susanne, Daisy and FoxiieReplyDelete
I don't think I've ever noticed the great collar that Wilf sports, but I've seen that look of peaceful contentment before as he sleeps with not a care in the world--Pure heavenly bliss!ReplyDelete
what a cutie lying belly up!ReplyDelete
hope your week is peaceful...
I have to agree with Wilf - it would be heaven to live in a French bakery and not gain any weight from eating the wares!ReplyDelete
That is completely my motto, and I think I say it almost once a day!ReplyDelete
The collar is perfect for Wilf -- it looks like a jester's costume! :) I dream of life in a bakery, too, but I'd be rounder than a beach ball if I lived in one!
I have precisely the same reaction to a bakery.ReplyDelete
Overjoyed to hear Wilf is having a good day!ReplyDelete
May we ask how his eye is doing? Do you think it's time to let his fringe grow to protect his eyes? If the hair accidentally falls in the eyes, he'll paw it away. But it will protect him in other cases. (Can you tell we've been reading about PONs again ?)
Wilf, just dream about life in a bakery or dream about more bakery in your life. Its all good thoughts, Monsieur!ReplyDelete
Cheers and hugs,
What joy does Wilf look!!! Positively relaxed and content. Oh, and I'd like the tart on the left SVP. I wish there was a french bakery near....I'd take a walk this minute! Keep going Wilf, darling boy!!ReplyDelete
With love your Canadian pals,
Dianna along with Tor, Willow and Tucker
we are smiling from ear to ear as we can almost smell the bakery too!ReplyDelete
I know that "forgiveness is easier than permission" look! Salt evinced it a good hour before devouring most of a prized salmon fillet. That raspberry tart would have to remain in my custody at all times if one of our PONs was contemplating theft...ReplyDelete
Fortunately I don't go grocery shopping with our dogs. As a result, upon my return, they are convinced that I must be the greatest huntress in the world!

Wilf does know how to live the good life no matter what difficulties must be overcome!DBHReplyDelete
The pictures of Wilf today make me smile. Hugs for all!ReplyDelete
Blessings and Love,

Chuckling - how many times have I seen that on-the-back snooze pose.ReplyDelete
I'm going to dream of the bakery too but I doubt that I'll ever look as cute as Wilf does in those photos. I love thinking of Wilf being so very content.ReplyDelete
That pecan on the left has my name all over itReplyDelete
I'd be dreaming of life in a bakery too if I went to that one. Those goodies look soooooo good! We have some in town but I tend to avoid them because all the cakes and pies are too tempting.ReplyDelete
