A Taste of Garlic

Boris in Cognac - Poitou-Charentes

poitou charentes  Boris in Cognac   because we all love reading blogs about life in FranceBoris in Cognac is a strange blog in that it is written by Boris (who else), who happens to be a six year old Old English Sheepdog!

For a six year old, he certainly writes well!

I do have a sneaking suspicion that some of the posts are written by his owners (Clive and Craig) but I’m sure that Boris had editorial control!

The reason I say this is because of some of the posts, such as…. An Irish Prostitute – not really doggy sense of humour, is it?

I’ve asked permission to interview Boris for A Taste of Garlic and, once I’ve worked out what sort of questions are suitable for a six year old dog (I don’t know how that equates to people-years and don’t want to ask anything too old for him), I’ll publish the interview here.




Having said that, there are some Dog related posts. Take a look at these…  Dog Talk,   Dog Tired and Dog Tricks!

Humour abounds on this site and I am going to shamelessly nick one of the jokes that Boris has published…..

A Modern Take on Scrooge!

A man in Scotland calls his son in London the day before Christmas Eve and says, “I hate to ruin your day but I have to tell you that your mother and I are divorcing; forty-five years of misery is enough.”

‘Dad, what are you talking about?’ the son screams.

“We can’t stand the sight of each other any longer” the father says. “We’re sick of each other and I’m sick of talking about this, so you call your sister in Leeds and tell her.”

Franticly, the son calls his sister, who explodes on the phone. “Like hell they’re getting divorced!” she shouts, “I’ll take care of this!”

She calls Scotland immediately, and screams at her father “You are NOT getting divorced. Don’t do a single thing until I get there. I’m calling my brother back, and we’ll both be there tomorrow. Until then, don’t do a thing, DO YOU HEAR ME?” and hangs up.

The old man hangs up his phone and turns to his wife. ‘Sorted! They’re coming for Christmas – and they’re paying their own way.’

I liked that!  There are also some wry observations, check these out…. French Drivers (how true!!!!),  The Country Life (Yes!!!) and A Cock Up!

My advice, pop over and see what Boris is up to at…. Boris in Cognac – I’m sure you won’t be disappointed!

All the best
