Do dogs sulk? This is "Ulysse", or Ulysses, who lives on a beach near Hyérès. You can see a good photo of him here (you'll also see a story featuring my Mom. Don't miss it.)
: to sulk, to give someone the cold-shoulder, to feel sorry for oneself
bouder la nourriture = to not eat, to have no appetite
bouder quelqu'un ou quelque chose = to refuse to have anything to do with someone or something

La reine va bouder le mariage du prince.

A Day in a French Life... by Kristin Espinasse
Yikes, cutting very close, today, to this edition's deadline! I've spent the morning rewriting the "bouder" story for the upcoming (it will come up, won't it?) story collection "Vignettes from the Var".
For those who would like to proofread the story, thanks for clicking here! I promise not to boude or bouder, no matter how many corrections you send in!
More photos from the archives: Uncle Jean-Claude's hat. Cousin Audrey keeps you up-to-date on their Domaine Banneret wines, here.
In other happenings: the wine-tastings here at Domaine Rouge-Bleu continue! Read Tony's blog in which he talks about his visit with us!
