Out with Wilf for our morning constitutional through the village and along the lane. Another sunny but windy day in this little corner of paradise. As we pass the gates of the chateau we're greeted by three high pitched barks and the sudden appearance of a furry, ginger and highly proprietorial dog. From the long line of large black Mercedes parked along the drive and spilling out onto the road I'm guessing that the German billionaires have arrived for the Easter holidays bringing their dog with them.
Old blind Wilf ploughs stolidly on quite unaware of the furry, ginger beast following him . He takes time to mark the chateau wall and push the wrought iron gates with his nose. This leisurely audacity drives the chateau dog insane. She darts backwards and forwards challenging Wilf to look her in the eyes. What he stops to christen, she stops to christen immediately afterwards. I manage to grab two quick snapshots of her. She's a sweet thing that looks like a cross between a wheaten terrier and a PON but is probably a very rare and very expensive breed. The thought of German-Polish reconciliation and taupe coloured puppies springs inadvertently into my mind. Within thirty seconds the encounter is over and Brunhilde ( as I've decided to call her ) has rushed back up the driveway to the safety of the barbican. She might be an uptown girl but this morning our downtown boy was quite oblivious to her charms. Having said that he returned home with a look on his face that said ' I'm a charmer '.
He knew she was there but decided she needed to be reminded who was in charge! :)ReplyDelete
Well done, handsome!ReplyDelete
He's being faithful to Kelly perhaps. Or Brunhilde may remind him of a canine Madame Bay.ReplyDelete
XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella
Quite the charmer, indeed! You have people who love you all over the world!ReplyDelete
Oh sweet heart, you really are a "charmeur", every one who knows you, fall under your charm, and Brunhilde surely did the same... What about Kelly ? In french, we call this "le chouchou de ces dames".ReplyDelete
Have a wonderful Thursday sweet boy. Cuddles and bisous to you. Amitiés to you Angus, and the Font.
Definitely a Charmer - the thought of puppies is just a Easter revelation - would be so wonderful.ReplyDelete
Hope he scents more of Brunhilde (this is not an appropiate name!!! - rather Claudia (Schiffer)...
Love from Southern Italy from Susanne (austro-hungarian), Daisy and Foxiie (international street worker foundation)
No doubt about it, Wilf is a charmer!! The fair Brunhilde is lovely--I wonder if she's a (fawn) Bearded Collie?ReplyDelete
Wilf pups! The very thought is just too wonderful! With pretty little Brunhilde, how adorable would they be!!!!ReplyDelete
Ah, it's Spring and a (not-so-)young man's thoughts turn to love. Keep ignoring her Wilf. That's Petey's modus operandi and it drives the girls mad!ReplyDelete
I can hear the "Flight of the Valkyries" playing in my head this morning while reading your post Angus. So funny. But the thought of little taupe Wilfies tugs at my heart. If only it could be arranged - yet I suspect the Mercedes owners would be appalled....*le sigh*ReplyDelete
What a tale to be told: spirited, territorial Brunhilde, daughter of Mercedes-lavished German billionaires meets irresistible, but aging Wilf, son of renaissance Scottish/Swedish expatriates. Will they share just a brief Easter flirtation? Or will she beg to be left behind in this peaceful corner of france profonde to find herself with her new beau?ReplyDelete
As we all know, anything can happen in this tiny bit of paradise!
Wilf certainly has IT ! He positively exudes an abundance of Charm others could only hope for and try to emulate. That uptown girl will probably be dreaming of local boy Wilf the Handsome Charmer for a long time! DBHReplyDelete
She's adorable, but she's no Kelly! Apparently Wilf still has his loyalties. I have no doubt that he's a charmer, though!ReplyDelete
Wilf *is* a charmer. It sounds like "Brunhilde" was quite taken with him!ReplyDelete
I loved your wedding post, both the description of the bride and groom and their event, and the morning after with sounds of nature as Wilf snoozed on the green.
A Sugar Mama!!ReplyDelete
Playin' hard to get, huh? Sly Wilf...sly!ReplyDelete
Wilf's apparent 'hard to get' attitude must have driven her mad - she's not used to being ignored, I bet! She's very pretty but sounds rather demanding. Stick to Kelly, the girl-next-door, Wilf. You both know where you stand with each other, even if you never quite seem to get it right!ReplyDelete
Indeed a real charmer! Who wouldn't be charmed by that face??? What a handsome boy! Enjoy your weekend and keep going Wilf!! Lovely fellow....ReplyDelete
With love your Canadian pals,
Dianna along with Tor, Willow and Tucker
A holiday romance perhapsfor the fraulein. Wilf is quite the charmer, so it is no wonder that she had that reaction to he first sighting of him!ReplyDelete
Not so rare -- you should call her "Jadwiga" for a queen she is! No wonder she was so excited to find Wilf, a male of her own kind. Granted, the sandy (and chocolate) color(s) are rare in PONs, but methinks that she is indeed a PON. You might inquire with your neighbors about their Polnischer Niederungshütehund...ReplyDelete
That uptown giwl is sooo lucky that you even went neaw hew
Being a billionaiwe does not guawantee that you meet pwince chawmings like you
Have a wondewful Eastew my Fwiend
Wilf is such a catch, it's no wonder all the ladies are interested in him. :)ReplyDelete
Blessings and Love,
Janelle and Maggie Mae
of course you're a charmer, wilf! keep playing hard to get with brunhilde...it'll drive her crazy! ;)ReplyDelete
the booker man and asa's mama
Wilf, you are a ladies dog indeed...BOLReplyDelete
Wilf is quite the ladies man!ReplyDelete
I think "Brunhilde" could be an Irish girl, she looks like a dog I saw in a shelter today. It was an Irish Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier.
