They know more than we think

September 19th, 2012

For this football tragic the elimination of the Eagles in the second week of finals has been eased by a new English Premier League season. Footy tipping for the early rounds of the season at the end of a convivial dinner with friends seemed like a good idea.

The only irritation was provided by my youngest son, just turned eight, who at his turn would exclaim loudly “I’ll just ask Poppy” before whispering into the large floppy ear of our Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and then remarking “What were the teams again?”As you may imagine, this slowed everything down A LOT!

Fast forward to mid-September. I’m sitting in second place but not sitting comfortably, oh no, because going strong in third place and only just behind is the youngest Buchanan/Poppy combo. If they overtake me we might have to carry on for the whole season ….

Do any readers have a dog or cat with unexpected abilities? I’d love to hear about them!

PS Next time my oldest boy has threatened to consult Waldo the family cat who he claims (perhaps justifiably if you know cats and Cavaliers) is far more clever!
