Description

This is the story of how a small brown and white spaniel turned the lives of two English holidaymakers upside down. Patricia and her husband Patrick are spending the summer in their holiday home in the Languedoc village of Morbignan la Crèbe. One hot Friday afternoon Patrick walks in with the little dog, thinking she is a stray. They have no intention of keeping her. 'Just for tonight,' says Patrick. 'We will take her to the animal shelter tomorrow.' It never happens. They spend the weekend getting to know and love the little creature, who looks at them appealingly with big brown eyes, and wags her absurd stump of a tail every time they speak to her. On the Monday her owner turns up, alerted by the Mairie. They could have handed her over. Instead Patricia finds herself saying: 'We like your dog, Monsieur. May we keep her?' It is the start of what will be four years as Morbignanglais, as they settle into life as permanent residents of the village. "At Home in the Pays d'Oc" is about their lives in Morbignan, the neighbours who soon become friends, the parties and the vendanges and the battles with French bureaucracy. It is the story of some of their bizarre and sometimes hilarious encounters: the Velcro bird, the builder in carpet slippers, the neighbour who cuts the phone wires, the clock that clacks, the elusive carpenter who really did have to go to a funeral.
