The tressle table and the baguette .

To the market with Wilf . The cheerful bread stall owner ( who continues to think Angus is Australian ) slips our canine companion the end of a baguette . Wilf , delighted by this not wholly unexpected turn of events , settles down under the tressle table, his heading poking out, a sliver of bread proudly positioned between his paws . Happiness .

Onto the cafe for coffee and a croissant . Yours truly , who has been lecturing the family about Wilfs diabetes , is caught on camera , slipping a sliver of dough towards a small ever hopeful polar bear . The polar bear then looks expectantly around . '' When hope is hungry , everything feeds it "


  1. That second picture is wonderful! Howl at the moon and let everyone know you're still here!

  2. Enjoy your breakfast snack buddy.

  3. Perhaps the bit of bread between the paws is encouragement for others to donate a little.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & bella

  4. Ooooh lovely photos this morning (as usual...) ! But, this time, we really know that Angus exists, seeing a part of him !
    Thanks for sharing Angus, how i would have seen the photo with the piece of baguette between Wilfee's paws, just so cute.
    Happy Monday to you and the Font. Lots of bisous to my beloved Wilfee.

  5. Such a sweet moment - I could cuddle Wilfie for hours... he is so cute.
    Love from Southern Italy Susanne, Daisy and Foxiie
    P.S. Like my chinese doctor Dr. Luo in London said about my old dog: " Keep him happy and he lives long!"

  6. Oh Wilf, I have been missing you and am so pleased to get back from my 'special vacation residence' and find that you are still out and about and enjoying life.
    Toodle pip!

  7. Wilf is really looking well!! I'd also say that despite the 'evidence' I have a feeling he would not admit to being given a bite of the croissant!

  8. Ah Wilf....we get to see the arm that feeds you......looking good guys!

  9. Don't you just hate when you get caught breaking your own rules? lol Wilf looks plenty happy by the turn of events! I bet he's happy to have his flock home again!

  10. oh you gorgeous healthy boys!!!
    i feel like i'm there. you do have a gift.
    ongoose the scotsaustralianfrenchman, you are looking very trim and fit, even with all of the font's wonderful food! must be all those walks with the tiny polar bear...

  11. I'd love to be a dog in your household. What bliss! Its the second time I've heard that quote today...obviously profound, but true nevertheless.

    congratulated you on the win in the
    TDF by a fellow Australian!

  13. Just think of the happiness all the treats are bringing Wilf! Pure joy in his eyes, pure joy!!! Keep on going Wilf, handsome, happy boy!

    With love your Canadian pals,
    Dianna along with Tor, Willow and Tucker

  14. I love that second photo he looks like he is laughing. Great picture. Diane

  15. Wilf doesn't seem to mind your lapse in judgement at all. :)

    Blessings and Love,
    Janelle and Maggie Mae

  16. You have such a nice tan, Angus! I'm a little jealous of that because I don't tan very well at all.

    I know treats aren't so good for Wilf but how can you deny him what obviously makes him so happy?

  17. Caught in the act! Oh Angus! Naughty boy! Hope it was a small piece! Maybe you could carry those tiny baby carrots, the ones that a visitor mentioned are ok for diabetic dogs, with you to give to Wilf when the urge overcomes you.
    In spite of all, we think you are a good heart.....and a soft touch!
