Stalemate

I'm spending the day sugar soaping the kitchen walls prior to decorating. 
It's a grotty but necessary job on a cold and misty day.
In the living room William and Winnie are embarking on an epic and silent struggle of who will occupy the little Edwardian armchair in the window.
Neither dog is backing down in this war of attrition which has lasted over 45 minutes .

 I stopped cleaning in order to make a meat pie for tea
and returned a good while later to see which dog had won the war

  6. Ha ha ha...I love a dog with persistence. It looks like a tie. I would have bet on Winnie.

  7. Ah well better to be slightly uncomfortable, but nice and warm, than to give in and look like a loser in the eyes of the others .... or Dad :-)

  15. That is too funny, and kind of heartbreaking! But they have worked it out. Sorta.

  16. A draw. The sort where no-one wins and no-one loses.

  18. They look like the way I feel when I'm with Willy Dunne Wooters. What is sugar soaping?

    Love,

  19. That's cute. We have two dogs too, both greyhounds. One is a ten year old 'tripod' called Sid - he's the easygoing one. The other is a twelve year old with various medical problems associated with aging, and a temperament I can only describe as close to autistic. One thing he will not tolerate is Sid getting into bed with him. However, if Jeff really wants the bed Sid is in, or if he's terribly worried about something (like his food station has been moved a foot to the left) he will sometimes creep in behind him, trying not to be noticed, and snuggled up.
