Paws up Sunday!

Hello Woofers!

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy and Freddy de Ferret here!

I just love Sundays like today!

We stayed in bed a whole half an hour longer than normal!

Old Two Legs was up just before us to get his shower and then we were off to the beach.

Now, you all know it is Autumn and the days are getting shorter and the nights are getting longer, so that means we got to bed when it's dark and wake up when it's dark!

Now it seems that OTL likes this arrangement 'cos he can play about with the camera and shoot Sunrises!

So, while he is playing we get a chance to roll in the sniffs and dig holes!

Miss May was well away with a hole!

This is good for hiding from the sunrise!
Holly was still half asleep, so she stayed on the Sea Wall basking in the warm glow of the sun!

I won't get much of a suntan until it gets higher in the sky!
Of course, OTL was clicking away, so I suppose I'll have to show you his effort!

Morning has Broken?
After the beach we headed off to the grass path, May was dragging her tail a bit 'cos she was looking at the sunrise and saying it was 'Pretty'!

I suppose next she will be bringing her own camera to take pictures of the sun!

Don't that all look pretty?
Back home we decided to retire for a morning snooze 'cos we had a late night last night. OTL got the carrots out and Holly and I were chewing away into the night!

Lunchtime we were down the beach again but this time the sun was right above our head, so no pretty pictures!

Instead we were playing on the beach digging holes and rolling in the sniffs!

Miss Wendy was having a great time and she was getting well down into the hole!

Haven't seen a ball have you?
Freddy was having a great time as well and instead of a deep hole, his was sort of spread about!

I need room to roll in mine!
This afternoon we have been watching some TV and snoozing, so pretty soon we will wake OTL up and see what is for dinner tonight!

I like the idea of an early breakfast around 2-15! Mind you, we take our carrot to bed with us so that if we feel peckish we can have a nibble without going down stairs!

Organisation, that's the secret!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy and Freddy de Ferret.

Fun Time!

Yo Woofers!

Us again, Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy and Freddy de Ferret!

Did we have fun last night! Loads of nibbles and Shortbread and Single Malt Whisky!

Freddy treated us to a demonstration of Ferret Break Dancing on the coffee table while May went through her 'Kung Foo' exercises complete with 'Death Yells'!

This morning we were clearing up the crumbs and there must have been a good pound of crumbs on the floor!

Old Two Legs let the birds enjoy the crumbs!

Down on the beach May and I had fun digging a hole to bury the ball, first I'd go in and dig, then she would dive in and throw some sand about.

Great Fun!

Come on, just a bit deeper!
 You know, left to it, these ferrets can do some serious digging if they put their mind to it!

Watch out, here comes OTL!
 We were not allowed to leave the ball in the hole and OTL came along with the Poo Bag and scooped it up.

That will stay in the ferret bag until tomorrow!

Back home OTL did all his jobs and had a game with the ferrets while Holly and I had our morning snooze.

I fancied an early walk and just as OTL was settling down to some computer work, I gave him the Woofers Woof!

That's the woof I use when I want something and after we have gone through everything from 'A wee in the garden' to 'A game with the squeaky toy' we settle on 'Walkies Time!'

We met up with loads of people who wanted to stroke Fred and Wendy and insisted on OTL telling them all about ferrets, BORING!

I mean, it used to be 'Ooooo! How cute!' What breed are they?  but now we don't get a second look!

It's all about ferrets now!

As we lost the ball a few days ago, Holly and I have now to dig a hole and pretend that we can sniff it and dig another couple of feet deeper!

Yeah! We are Australian Digger Dogs'
We plan to watch a DVD tonight and OTL has chosen 'The Hobbit' and he says that while The Missus is away he is going to watch the whole set of DVDs.

Of course, there may be some nibbles and Shortbread and Single Malt!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy and Freddy de Ferret.

TM's Gone so get the Nibble Tin out!

Hi Woofers!

Here we are again, Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy and Freddy de Ferret!

Wot a super day it has been. Loads of sunshine and balmy breezes!

First thing this morning it was just a little misty but once the sun was up it soon burnt off any remaining mist!

After the sun got over the horizon it was all golden skies and sun rays!

Red Funnels in the sun rise!
We met up with Max and Oscar who were out for their morning walk and we saw Bud and young Dave!

Miss May got spooked by one of those Tin Birds that roar overhead. Once she got the wind under her tail she was off like a rocket down the path towards the car!

Back home The Missus was getting all in a state 'cos she wanted the car to load up all her stuff for a visit to Martin's place. She is babysitting the grand sons while Mum and Dad are off for a few days in some sunny part of the world!

Pretty soon she was off in a cloud of smoke from the squealing tyres as she roared off up the road!

Lunchtime Old Two Legs was waiting for a delivery but I was getting a bit 'desparate' and had a need for some long grass!

In the end OTL loaded us all in the car when around the corner came the delivery man and delivered the package OTL was waiting for!

Nice timing!

It was a bit warm down on the beach but Fred and Wendy both had a little dig while Holly and I went off Sniffing the Sniffs!

Heading back along the top path we met up with a big hairy bozo of a woofer who got me a bit worried. I hung back but Holly went to say 'Hello'.

Now this Bozo just had no manners and he shoved his nose where Holly didn't like it, so she gave him a sharp 'Woof Off'!

You know the Dopey Bozo just didn't get the hint and he did it again!

This time Holly not only woofed but gave him the 'Warning Growl' as well!

His Two Legs called hi back and put him on a lead, that stopped him!

Once he had passed us and was far enough down the path I put my head back and gave him the 'Woofers Challenge'!

I went Woof, woof, Woof Whooooooooo, Hooooooooooo, Hooooooooo!

I did that a couple of times but kept a good look out just in case he decided to come back, but he didn't!

That told him!

Back home we gathered up some stuff and off we went delivering!

While OTL was delivering Holly and I sat in the car trying to decide what nibbles we were going to get out tonight. Holly wants the biscuits that leave crumbs everywhere and I want the Chicken Fillets that are Sooooo Tasty!

We think OTL may get his shortbread out and that means he will be making crumbs all over the place as well!

I bet Archie Babe's TL wouldn't want any crumbly stuff, not with a sore tooth hole in her jaw!

Nasty, mind you, a slurp of alcohol based drinkies will help to keep the soreness down, well, that's what OTL says and he never suffers from a sore tooth, so it must work! 

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy and Freddy de Ferret!

No Frogs, just Nargles on the prowl!

Yo Woofers!

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy and Freddy de Ferret here!

Happy Equinox!

We saw a real Autumnal sunrise, all misty and golden!

Autumn Equinox.
That didn't stop us from having a good game! May went off to see if there were any Nargles hiding under the Sea Weed. She said there were thousands there just waiting to attack us and pinch our rubber ball, just like they did yesterday when they pinched our solid rubber ball after we buried it in the hole!
Get back all you Nargles or I'll get Holly to sort you out!
May came running over and told me all about the Nargles under the Sea Weed and how they had designs on our rubber ball!

That was it, I was digging for all I was worth! May was helping by shifting some of the sand and helping with instructions on the shape and size of the hole!

Over to the left a bit!
 May had a go at digging as well and there were times when she held the ball so I could dig underneath the ball.

OK, have a breather, you don't want to over do it!
 Then I took turns in holding the ball while May dug underneath as well!

OK, I've got it, carry on digging!
 Finally we reckoned it was deep enough and we took time to scan around to see if the Nargles were watching us!

No, I can't see any of them watching us, quick, shove it in the hole and sit on it!
 We buried the ball and kicked the sand back into the hole to cover the ball. Old Two Legs said that it really wasn't deep enough and any Nargle with a nose could find it without any problem!

Well, we were wondering just what we could do when OTL suggested that we put it in a Poo Bag and hide it in the Ferret Bag!

Well, it sounds like a good idea to me!
 So, that was it, back in the bag and it is safe until tomorrow morning!

 This afternoon Fred and Wendy had a go at digging for the ball, until OTL told them it was at home!

Wadda You mean 'It's Gone'?
This afternoon it has been rather warm, so we are crossing our claws that it keeps warm and sunny for when we go away on holiday next month.

Until then we are going to enjoy any sun we get, even if it is down here in North Kent!

Oh! Another thing, Archie Babe, OTL won't let us pat the Frogs Butt 'cos he says that we would be too rough!

Holly reckons that they taste like chicken and we love chicken!

See you all tomorrow!

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy and Freddy de Ferret.

Trev's gotta Sister!

Hi Woofers!

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy and Freddy de Ferret here again!

You know it is getting very noticeable that the days are getting shorter. It is dark when we get up and the sunrise is still visible when we get down to the beach!

Sunrise is getting more colourful now!
Did you know the tomorrow is the September equinox here in North Kent? That means the day light and the night time are exactly the same! After that it is all down hill until the Spring!

Miss May enjoyed her run on the beach chasing the rubber ball!

I let her get the ball a couple of times but in the end my long legs proved to be faster than her short ones!

Back home we were having a look around the garden, checking up on the sniffs and looking for anything new.

Holly noticed it first, a small nose and a couple of small eyes poking out from under a Lilly Pad.

Another Frog!

It certainly wasn't Trevor 'cos he is a bit bigger and darker skin colour.

So now we have two frogs, OTL says that if they were from the frog spawn then they would be brother and sister but if one was from the live for we introduce then we could be looking at some baby frogs next year!

Claws crossed!

Down on the beach at lunchtime, Old Two Legs had brought my solid rubber ball so Holly and I had great fun charging up and down the beach with the ball.

I started to dig a hole in which to put the ball and the further I got down into the sand the more the sides would fall into the hole covering the ball!

OK, where is is now?
After a while Holly and I needed a breather and that gave Fred and Wendy a chance to dive in and start throwing sand about.

Will you get off my shoulders!
They had a good rummage around and although there was traces of Ball Sniff, there was no sign of it!

We can sniff it but can't find it!
After ferreting around looking for the ball the ferrets gave up and allowed Holly and me back into the hole!

Well you put it in here!
 In the end we had to give up and admit the ball was gone!

Back in the car the ferrets were straight into the water bowl! They made such a noise slurping the water down!

Do you think we could have a swim in here?
Back home the ferrets were absolutely whacked! They went back into the cage, had a nibble and slurp and headed for their beds!

I don't expect that we will hear from them until tomorrow morning!

We are now off to see what OTL has lined up for dinner and more important, can we have a bit!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy and Freddy de Ferret.

Trevor is Back!

Hi Woofers!

It's us again, Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy and Freddy de Ferret!

Hey! Guess wot?

We spotted Trevor in the pond!

There he was, with his head poking out of the weed and trying to be very still!

'Yo Trev' we said and asked him wot he was doing. 'Hunting Insects' he says which means he is getting his dinner!

Soosh! Food is close!
 We left him to his hunting and headed off to the beach where May and I had a game of 'Chase The Ball' and I won 'cos I'm bigger and faster than May!

Come on, share the ball!
 Holly didn't join in, she was too busy watching the world go by!

That all looks too much like hard work!
 Back home we settled down to a snooze while Old Two Legs was packing up stuff that had to be taken to the carriers for shipping.

The Missus went off as well to a craft store that was having a sale, so that means she is spending all her pocket money again!

OTL came back and we were off to the beach again. Freddy was half asleep and kept blagging a lift while Miss Wendy had a run up and down the beach!

OK, now for a hole!
 While we were playing, OTL spotted a ship being nudged towards the Medway. It was a Liquid Natural Gas transporter. It was going very slowly but with all that gas on board we didn't want any accidents!

Holly wanted to know if everyone on board were 'Crafters' 'cos with all that gas on board that should keep them going for a week or two!

Full of Crafters?
Back home we found TM had returned and it looks like she was loaded up with goodies!

Miss May was rattling on her cage door so after putting Fred and Wendy to bed, May came out and went for a rampage around the office!

It wasn't long before she climbed back into the cage and was soon asleep again!

We are taking it turns to keep an eye open to see if we can spot Trevor!

See you all tomorrow!

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy and Freddy de Ferret.

More fun and games!

Hello Woofers!

It's us again..........................................................
Freddy de Ferret, Holly, OTL, Wendy and Me!
 There we go, a different introduction to our blog!

The picture came from Amanda the 'Artistic Glue Slapper!'

Do we do look good or what!

Remarkably, it was rather warm down on the beach and Old Two Legs didn't even put on his fleece!

Miss May was in a playful mood and started off digging a trench!

Nothing like a bit of Trench Building to start the day off!
Wot she didn't realise was Oscar sitting on top of the Sea Wall watching her!

At this rate it will take her all day!
I wandered over to see what she was doing but all she wanted was my rubber ball! I mean, OTL gave me the ball and now she wants to bury it in the sand!

Giss da Ball or else!
 Well, there was no way she was going to take it off me!

Then she asked how I would dig the hole and well, you know me, anything to help out a Woofer!

I dropped the ball and started to dig when in she comes and pinches the ball!

It's no good being a Ferret if you can't be sneaky!
 Lunchtime we went out delivering stuff and then headed off to the beach again. It was still warm and Freddy Boy decided he wanted to have some time 'Resting' on the beach. Now that would normally be OK but today the tide was coming in a quite a rate and if Freddy stayed on the beach he would be in danger of being swept away!

Just a five minute snooze, that's all!
Back home OTL was in 'Manufacturing Mode' so that is a good excuse for Holly and I to find a comfortable bed and snooze the afternoon away, just in time for dinner tonight!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy and Freddy de Ferret!

Glue Slappers R Us!

Hi Woofers!

Us again, Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy and Freddy de Ferret!

It was a late night last night and so we didn't exactly get up at our normal time, Old Two Legs was all of ten minutes late in getting up!

Mind you, the ferrets were all fast asleep 'cos it was still dark!

Holly was tucked up next to OTL and I was in the office snoozing on my bed!

Down on the beach we had a good game. OTL had brought the rubber ball and although the tide was out we all had a good game of 'Chase the Ball' and 'Let's Bury The Ball'!

May was chasing me up and down the beach 'cos she wanted dig a hole and bury it.

Come on, Giss The Ball!
She got it a couple of times but in the end it was Holly and I who buried it at the bottom of a whacking great hole!

OK, That's deep enough!
What we didn't tell May was that while it looked like we buried the ball, in fact Holly had sneaked it away while May wasn't looking. So May was digging to find it but it wasn't there!

Just how far down is this ball?
 In the end OTL got the ball off us and wrapped it up in a Poo Bag and put it back in the ferret bag for tomorrow!

We got back home and found the Glue Slappers were still snoring their heads off! I mean, just how long do they sleep for?

Holly reckons they must be half ferret needing all that sleep!

Lunchtime we all headed down to the beach again and everyone was snapping away with their cameras. Freddy Boy was having fun by striking a pose and as soon as anyone lifted their camera to take a picture, he would turn his head away or poke his tongue out!

How's this for a 'Regale Look?'
OTL got instructions to take a photo of the 'Three Glue Slappers' while they rested on a bench. Holly and I kept a watch out for woofers 'cos the ferrets were allowed to run around in the grass on their own!

The finest bunch of Glue Slappers on the Beach!
Back home we watched the F1 Racing but to be honest, it was a bit boring, not much overtaking!

Mind you, we fell asleep half way through!

It's a good job The Missus recorded it all 'cos we can watch it during the week when the Two Legs are working!

I'm not sure what we got for dinner tonight but I can sniff the curry bubbling away on the cooker, so I think we may get a bit of Naan Bread dipped in the gravy, but nothing else!

See you all tomorrow!

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy and Freddy de Ferret!

OTL gets his Artwork!

Hi Woofers!

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy and Freddy de Ferret back again!

Well, last night, just a bit later than we expected, The Glue Slappers arrived!

One is called Amanda but she is also known as Mandy!

Julie is the other and she is also known as Julie!

Well, they all said 'Hello' and Old Two Legs was presented with the Artwork that he so admired!

Today he mounted it in a frame and it is now hanging on the wall in the lounge!

It's Called 'Bubbles'!
Needless to say, last night they were all gassing away while Holly and I cuddled up to OTL and helped him eat his shortbread!

The Missus, Julie and Mandy spent the evening gassing and slurping the 'Giggle Juice' TM had stored in the fridge!

We all got up late this morning!

The Village Hall is where they are hiding today and they will be there until nine tonight!

This Glue Slapping can be habit forming!

First thing in the morning OTL gets his breakfast and the Lactose Free milk, Miss May is let out first thing and she heads for the milk, has a slurp and then rushes up a plastic tube and straight onto the desk where OTL has left a cap full of Ferretone for her to slurp!

OK, I'll get back to the milk later
 Down on the beach we watched a big ship being pushed and pulled about by a couple of small tugs!

Playing 'Push-me-Pull-You'
 Once again the sea was too rough for me to take a swim, so I just watched it for a while and then headed off to the sniffs!

I'm brave, but not stupid!
 This afternoon OTL has been working at 'Manufacturing' again so that means Holly and I get to have a good snooze on the sofa without TM telling us to 'Shove Over'!

This evening we are back on the sofa with OTL sharing his shortbread!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy and Freddy de Ferret!

Ten Degrees down and falling!

Hi Woofers!

It's Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy and Freddy de Ferret here!

Well, wot a change from yesterday!

We were out this morning and although there was rain in the air it was still muggy but there was slight breeze, enough to blow the Wind Power Generators over in Sheerness!

Making the most of the breeze, we saw a Thames Barge heading off towards London and in the distance there was a Sea Barge heading towards Sheerness!

Two ends of the energy spectrum!
 We met up with the Lads and Old Two Legs had to carry Miss May who was all twitchy about wanting to get down and have a run, but not with the woofers!

Finally OTL found some space and May had a great time digging in the sand and chasing sniffs on the top path!

OK? Ready for some sniffs!
Back home I had some fun helping OTL sort out some stuff in the loft. He carried me up into the loft then left me to have a sniff. He then came back to get his bits and also to sort out a picture frame for a special present he has been told he will get this afternoon!

So, with a bit of luck, we may have a super bit of artwork, framed and hanging on the wall before we have to hit the 'Publish' button!

The rain may have fallen in other places and caused flooding but so far we are suffering no more than a damp windscreen!

Down on the beach Freddy enjoyed a dig but got some sand up his nose and did a whacking great sneeze!

WAAAAH.....Tisssshoooooooo!
He has got to learn to hold his breath when he is snuffling in the sand!

I was contemplating a dip but when I saw the size of the waves I took an 'Executive Decision' and went off to investigate the sniffs!

Maybe not to day!
 When we got back home OTL took a look at the weather thingy and announced that it was fifteen degrees outside where over the last few days it has bee up around twenty eight degrees!

Autumn has arrived!

Holly and I have been looking out the window but there have been no strange cars, so that means the Glue Slappers haven't arrived yet!

Looks like you'll have to wait until tomorrow to see the artwork but believe me, it will be worth it!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy and Freddy de Ferret.
