Tired ? Moi ?

Three o'clock on Saturday morning . Wilf is asleep on his back snoring contentedly away . Angus is watching Scotland nearly lose to Romania in the World Cup Rugby. After a good first half everything seems to go wrong in the second . Maybe the team is suffering from jet lag ? At one point Romania is ahead 24-21. Wilf raises an eyebrow as Angus becomes ever more impassioned . Final score Scotland 34 , Romania 24 .

This morning Wilf is suffering from a bad hair day . He chooses not to join me on the croissant run into town, opting instead to complete his beauty sleep . Angus has three cups of coffee at the bar under the arcades returning to find a PON with his chin resting on the front doorstep breathing gently .

After his late night Wilf has that ' I'm not asleep but that doesn't mean I'm awake ' look to him .

Now eight o'clock on Saturday morning . Across the lane in the village hall the local farmers and their sons are already congregating to watch France play Japan . It's going to be a long seven weeks.


  1. Are you sure it shouldn't be 'Angus' in that last sentence....?

  2. hey Wilf,

    I know about those bad hair days. With a Summer of heat and humidity, my fur has been looking a bit wild. But I think you look adorable! Kind-of have that Alfalfa look going on (from "The Little Rascals"). :->

    Yay to Scotland! My human has some Scottish blood so she is happy to read Scotland won!


  3. Doesn't France have DVR's? 3am indeed! :)

  4. So nice to be able to watch it in our own time zone for a change! A privilege to have so many visitors and viewers :)

  5. Congratulations to Scotland.

    Three cups of coffee! Is that a lack of sleep or one to many celebratory (or edge of your seat) glasses of champagne?

  6. Scotland won !!! What about champagne ? Only three coffee to celebrate such an intense moment... As i am writing, France wins at 35 to 21, yeepeee !

    Happy to read on your yesterday post that Wilfee had a lovely week without blood.

    Thanks for sharing those beautiful pictures of our beloved polar bear. Bisous to him, and amitiƩs to you, Angus.

  7. Sweet Wilf only has super hair days - whatever style he wears -
    I hope you all have enough strength to face the 7weekmarathon of rugby.
    Love from Southern Italy Susanne, Daisy and Foxiie

  8. I'll take Wilf's bad hair days over mine any day... he sure knows the cure for them tho... did you bring him some take out croissant?

  9. Exciting rugby matches. Our debut is tomorrow...not so certain of our current team. Good luck to Scotland...oh well, Good luck to ALL the teams.
    Hugs to Wilfey too.

  10. A bad hair day for Wilf equals cute pictures for us to enjoy! He is still our little cutie!

  11. alas... wilfee and i have the same attitude toward rugby... though must say so glad scotland won!
    bisous to you boys.
    adorable pictures of the super happy and relaxed little polar bear!

  12. You and Wilf might both become nocturnal by the time the cup is over. Good luck! I hope it's a good seven weeks!

  13. Hello Angus and Wilf,

    Bad hair days are great looking hair days! You know how we love seeing Wilf's hair all up and different directions. One of the Piappies - Wai-Max always has a bad hair day and we always get the look of "why is my fur always not cooperating in one direction"?!

    Good luck with the rugby games! Go Scotland!

    Piappies Fudgie, Princess, Frappie, Mocha, Sugar, Wai-Pai, Wai-Max & Forgie

  14. I will have to check our local listings to see when some games are televised. Best of luck to Scotland! Hugs for Wilf.

    Blessings and Love,
    Janelle and Maggie Mae

  15. That's quite the early start to the day isn't it!! Keeping fingers crossed that Scotland does well. A long 7 weeks indeed! Looking dapper as always Wilf! Love the photos! Keep on going Wilf, lovely boy!

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

  16. Hurrah for Scotland! We're on for 9/11 (11/9). Something unsettling there.
    Wolf looks perfectly adorable as usual. All of our love.

  17. Looks like Wilf has found a way to cope with the next 7 weeks just fine. Mazel tov on Scotland's winning in - round 1? On to round 2 and good luck.

  18. Just taking a break from my blog break to check in on you all- happy to see you are all plugging along. We are fine here in Anchorage, leaves drifting onto the ground but a lovely Fall here, sunny & still not too chilly - yet! Cheers!!

  19. Presuming you're rooting for Scotland, congrats on your team winning!
