Sleeping cheese.

Pre-dawn darkness. Time for the daily trip to the bakers. Wilf has chosen to spend the night asleep at the foot of the stairs . He's got his nose deep inside one of my gardening shoes , his right paw guarding the other . I pick up the car keys, open the door and shout out '' Croissants ! ". His fringe moves but that's all . Sometimes a boy needs his beauty sleep .

' The font ' finishes dinner with a particularly powerful goats cheese . Wilf arrives , his nose , or the one nostril that still works, turned expectantly in the direction of the pungent delight . He seems to be saying that this is not just any food - this is what Polish Lowland Sheepdogs eat in their natural habitat.

For ten years of his life this sort of dining room behaviour was forbidden but there comes a time when rules are meant to be broken . The family fellow gets three tiny slivers. Afterwards he sleeps , pit stop free , all the way through . Perhaps we should give him goats cheese every night ?

' The font ' has just drawn an unhelpful comparison between the goats cheese and the inside of my shoes .


  1. I, Daisy, love sleeping with my nose in HER shoes. But we don't think it smells like goats' cheese.

    Rules are made to be broken sometimes.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

  2. My father has a favourite expression 'comparisons are odious'. Perhaps that should be 'odorous'.
    Cheers, Gail.

  3. Dogs and shoes. There must be something special about stinky feet!

  4. Lovely photos of sweet Wilfee, he seems to be so happy !
    The Font is a bit "moqueuse", we all know that Angus' shoes only smell leather !
    Enjoy this new day Wilfee, i send you all my love little boy.

  5. Love this post - more beauty sleep - and a new sleeping aide - love from Southern Italy Susanne, daisy and Foxiie

  6. Your post made me laugh! Good start to the day. :)

  7. Well, that may finally explain why shoes are so sought after in our house--Now about those socks...


    PS: 'Tammy J' who frequently comments on your posts is unable to comment on some blogs at the moment. She really misses being able to and has asked me to pass on this message: 'please tell angus my love to little wilf, just still can't get thru!' tammy j'

  8. Dear "font,"

    Great minds think alike!

  9. ha! the shoes and the cheese....the first thing i thought of.....

  10. I wondered if someone was going to make that connection!

  11. As far as Lulu is concerned, feet and cheese are the same - the smellier the better !!

  12. *snicker* That's quite a commentary on your shoes! I wonder what Wilf's opinion is. At least he found something he likes!

  13. Wilf would probably love something spoiled and really foul to roll in, as well. Lets just be frank here, dogs are famous for loving stinky stuff.


  14. It sounds like Wilf had a wonderful day! That makes us happy.

    Blessings and Love,
    Janelle and Maggie Mae

  17. The font can always tickle my funny bone!

    Yes, there comes a time when all those silly rules need to be broken. Goats cheese everynight!

  18. What could be more comforting than curling up with the familiar smell of one you love best?
