Any dog owner will know only too well how their prize animals can move with all the speed and stealth of a puma when food is being prepared. It is uncanny how Wilf and Digby can segue from deep sleep to electric alertness in the space of a nanosecond when we move to start preparing breakfast, lunch or dinner. I don't know whether it is the sounds we make, the action of opening the fridge door, or the smell of food - or a combination of all three - but they have a 100% hit rate when it comes to being in place for meal times. The boyz have been trained so that they know that they have to wait for us to eat first but that doesn't stop them from sitting in the kitchen looking longingly and imploringly at whatever is on the menu. They really are the ever hopeful duo!
