Time to have the heating checked .

Headlights on as we drive into town . A thick morning mist covering the ground and swirling through the trees . The church steeple rising dark above the arcades . The first sign of autumn . With its neon lit windows the newsagents a warming beacon of colour and light . The haar burns off by nine revealing another day of sun and blue skies . A reminder though that it's time to have the central heating boiler serviced .

Wilf positions himslf at the door of the kitchen . Scotland have lost to Argentina in the rugby , 13-12, so a day for an uplifting Sunday lunch . Salade de cou de canard farci au foie gras followed by Dos de cabillaud en crout de brebis, sauce au vin rouge . The old fellow ignores me completely , his attention focused entirely on ' the font ' and whether he'll get some flakes of cod with his lunchtime kibble . He does .

He also gets some sorbet au jurancon et ses madeleines as a treat . He smacks his lips enthusiastically in a way that says ' human food - can it get any better ? ' . Then a four hour post-lunch doze . The hectic life of an old PON.


  1. Such a smiley face! Love that picture - maybe would should all reconsider how we feed our dogs - with Wilfie as the best example - he looks great.
    Lots of Love from Southern Italy Susannae, Daisy and the trotting Foxiie

  4. Ah, Wilf... K is hoping that her stomach improves as much as yours has in the coming years so that she can eat all the delicacies that you do! You lucky Pon!

    Sorry about Scotland...

  5. The hectic life of an old PON.
    Oh Angus, it's perfect! Just perfect.

  6. I think Wilf has lived so long since his diagnosis because he eats better than most people! My mouth is watering, and I'm not even sure what all of that is!

  7. Sorry to hear of Scotland....but on an upward note, lunch sounded perfect!! And madeleines!!! I have yet to venture to the kitchen to make them, but they sound divine! And as for the 4 hour post lunch nap, that sounds just right to us!! Enjoy the day and keep on going Wilf, handsome boy!!!

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

  8. A four-hour post lunch doze. Such a rough life that Wilf leads! lol

  9. I have no idea what was served for lunch but it sounds much better than what I had. :)

    Blessings and Love,
    Janelle and Maggie Mae

  10. When I die I want to come back as one of your dogs. Wilf has had a wonderful life with you if I am reading this correctly!
