Guess Wot we did today?

Hello Woofers!

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret and Monty de Ferret here!

We love Sunday, it's one of the days in the week that we can sort of.........

Snooze!
Or, we can do what Holly does best...........

Snore!
 If you could find a ferret it may surprise you to find them..........

Having a cuddle and a Snooze!
 It is just the best thing, a snooze. You sort of drift off and dream about all the things that make you happy, like food and games and chasing cats.

Then along comes Old Two Legs, waving our harness and lead and squeaking 'Walkies!'.

There are times I wish he would have a snooze!

Today we went out at lunch time with Monty and Wendy, Monty was all up for a run 'cos he hadn't been out for a week or so and as he said, he was getting a bit 'Cage Crazy'!

Wendy said it was good to get a sniff of fresh air!

To begin with they both hid in the bag but soon Monty was sticking his nose out and sniffing the air!

OK, OTL, I'll get out here if that's OK with you?
 The wind was blowing, reducing the air temperature but it wasn't too bad and the clouds looked pretty!

Remember when it was Summer and all hot?
 Miss Wendy was a bit slow to start but she got going and chased Holly all the way back to the football field!

........99....100....coming, ready or not!
 Monty was more interested in sharing our sniffs but he found some Weasel sniffs and wanted to go off in a different direction!

It's there, I can sniff it, I really can sniff it!
Back home it was all back to the bed for a well earned snooze before dinner. Best of all it's chicken today and we may even get it a bit earlier than normal!

Tomorrow is Monday so that means back to work guarding the house. Holly and I still do our duty at night, marching around the house with our tails up straight and singing our 'Guarding Song'. It's normally around half way around the house that OTL wakes up and suggests what we should be doing is creeping around, quietly, just like the SAS! (That's Special Animal Service!)

Maybe that's why we are always in need of more snoozes than OTL?

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret and Monty de Ferret.

Saturday Fun.

Hi Woofers!

We're back again, Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret and Monty de Ferret!

We have had what is known as 'a quiet day', in fact it has been very peaceful!

This morning we were out early and had the good luck to see Venus shining bright in the morning sky. There were a few other stars twinkling i the sky but not as bright as Venus!

Holly says it is called the Morning Star but if we see it in the early evening, it's then called the Evening Star!

Well, I don't understand how a star can have two names and yet still be the same star, strange!

Today The Missus has been off to her Master Class in the village hall while we have been having a lazy day.

First we had a good snooze while the cages were cleaned then enjoyed a super snooze under Old Two Legs desk while he was, tidying up the files on the computer.

No, I don't know what that means but it seemed to be important and it keeps him quiet while we have a snooze!

Lunchtime we took Eric out with us for a walk, only Eric thought it was a tad too chilly for walking and kept crawling back into the ferret bag to keep warm! Every so often OTL would dig him out for a walk but he kept chasing after OTL then running up OTL's leg and into the bag, again!

It was only when we were half way across the football field that Eric decided to run back to the car!

Maybe tomorrow, if it's not raining, we will invite Wendy and Monty to come out with us 'cos they enjoy a run on the damp grass!

We have had some of our Doggy Scoff today but with a bit of luck, OTL will have steak and chips with mushrooms and other stuff we can help him eat!

Well, he can always have some of our Scoff if he gets hungry!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret and Monty de Ferret!

Friday!

Hi Woofers!

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

Now this morning we found some photo's in the 'in box' of the email and Michael had come up trumps with his photo's of the ferrets show. First there was Eric de Ferret resting on Old Two Legs shoulder after a hard session in the judges room. All that posing and being examined and poking and pulling and inspecting the underside of his tail!

Winner of the Pastel Polecat Ferret Hob Section, Eric, not OTL!
Then there was the Veteran section in which Miss May came second and she was exhausted after the judging but managed a big smile when the results were announced!

Me? A rosette for little old me?
There was one cheeky ferret who managed to get to the Dook Oil which is like Ferretone!

No one can see me so I'll have another slurp!
Of course, being the star of the show, Michael just had to take a picture of me!

Can we go walkies now?
So, a little late but that is the final picture from the show!

Today we planned to take the ferrets out but after we came back this morning, it started to rain and then it carried on raining and it looked wetter and wetter. So, that was it for the ferrets, they just curled up and went to seep. Unlike Holly and I, we get dragged out shoved in the car and off we go!

Mind you, it was raining when we left but OTL spotted a 'Window' in the showers and when we got out of the car in the car park, it had stopped!

Well, you know what? It didn't start to rain again until we got home and were half way through our chicken dinner!

The appointment has been made with the vet and on Monday we are off to be weighed, pushed, poked and looked at while OTL gets robbed!

You know, we have lots of fun here!

Thank you Michael for the pictures.

See you tomorrow.

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret and Monty de Ferret.

Busy Busy Day!

Hello Woofers!

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

Where have all the woofers gone,
In their beds, everyone
Where are all the TLs too
Stamping cards to send to you.

Well, Auntie Sue did try but she just doesn't have the woofers feel for a song, I mean, where is the reference to piles of sniffy poo?

Where have all the woofers gone,
Long time passing
Where are all the woofers gone,
Sniffing all the ar..........!

See wot we mean?

Well, today we have been busy chasing Old Two Legs to get all the stuff done and packed and shipped and filed away ready for the weekend!

It may even be warm enough to take the ferrets out at lunchtime tomorrow, claws crossed, so all we have to do is decide which cage to open!

Back to today, we found several good sniffs in the football field and OTL had to come back to shoo us along!

Hang on, this is a good sniff!
Down on the Sea Front we found some new sniffs, obviously a visitor but we don't mind, especially as there were no woofers to say hello to!

Hang on,  there is another sniff here!
We found some 'Stranger' sniffs on the Sea Wall but Holly reckons the sniff was old and was laid down last weekend!

It's more of a dribble than a decent wee!
 This afternoon I heard OTL try telephoning the vet, seems he wants to get some anti flea stuff but needs a prescription first and that means we have to go down there for a check up when Holly will be told she is too fat!

Holly says she is not fat, just cuddly!

Yeah right, and OTL loves going to the vets!

Well, the vet was gassing on the phone so OTL has given up and will call again tomorrow, so we have escaped for now!

We have seen some photos Michael too at the ferret show but they are on FaceAche so The Missus has been asked to contact Mike and get him to send to OTL by email!

Right we are off to see what sort of Doggy Scoff we got tonight, lamb, beef or chicken, well we can dream!

More than likely it will be some nondescript meat mix up that tastes of ferret poo!

Think of us starving tonight and if we survive, see you tomorrow!

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret and Monty de Ferret!

Where have all the woofers gone?

Hi Woofers!

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

Do you ever get one of those days when nothing happens?

I mean, a day when no matter what you do, nothing happens!

We have had one of those days today.

It started off when Old Two Legs woke up at four 'cos The Missus got up to make a card on account she had been 'Inspired' by a dream she had!

I don't suppose any of my dreams could be made into cards, I mean, greasy Chicken, Rawhide chews and Cats would go well on a Christmas Card!

We were up and off to the sea shore at our normal time but as normal, it was just too dark and too wet and too cold for the ferrets so off we went on our own!

We didn't see or hear anyone, not even a stray woofer or a sneaky cat!

Boring!

Back home OTL was manufacturing, boring!

Lunchtime we were banging on the back of OTL's chair to let him know it was walkies time!

Off we went sing our 'Walkie Song'!

When we got down there we saw..............................

Well, that looks.......um......'Interesting'!
 Well, we had a sniff and wander along the Sea Wall expecting to see other woofers or Two Legs but when we investigated all the normal 'notice boards' and what did we see?

No, I didn't hear anything either!
 It was most unusual, I mean, not even a stray cat or rabbit or even a crow or two! Holly and I decided to get back home as soon as possible 'cos there were two things waiting, Chicken Scoff and a warm bed!

I know we are supposed to be on guard but after a big bowl of chicken all we want to do is sleep it all off!

I'm getting bored with this, let's get home!
 Back home OTL went back to manufacturing, (boring) TM was card making (boring) but we went into the kitchen for some chicken! (SUPER!)

Let's hope tomorrow is a little more exciting!

Bye for now.

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret and Monty de Ferret!

OTL's back!

Hi Woofers!

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

Well, he finally turned up, late and saying he was just too tired!

Then he had some dinner and fell asleep in front of the TV!

This morning he woke up a whole hour later than normal! Not that I was complaining, I do enjoy a extra hour in bed!

Needless to say, we missed all the local lads but met up with Henry who was out with his Two Legs who wanted to tell Old Two Legs all about the Buzzard she had seen but OTL topped that, he had seen a Red Kite just down the road!

One up for OTL!

This morning has been spent emailing customers and sending quotes. With a bit of luck he may get an order or two!

Lunchtime we were out again but left the ferrets to snooze, well the temperature this morning was two degrees centigrade!

At lunch time it had warmed up a few degrees but even so, the ferrets said they would rather stay in bed!

When we got down there Holly called out, 'Last on in is a Pussy Cat' and started running towards the sea!

Of course I mistook what she was on about and thought there was a cat that needed chasing!

I got ahead but stopped when I realised she was hanging back sniffing the sniffs!

Cats? Wot cats?
 I think I'll wait until we get on the Sea Wall and when the tide is in, I'll give her a shove and let's see if she can swim!

Today was not the day, the tide was on the way out and the Brant Geese were feeding on the mud flats.

Not deep enough to wash a shrimp!
 On the way back OTL got this shot, it shows you haw little wind there was about, that steam is going straight up!

Just look at that sky and it's only just after lunch!
 We were chatting this afternoon, Auntie Zoe is a chef and we reckon that if we lived closer to her we might end up with steak of lamb chops or as it is Christmas a few weeks ahead, we could have Turkey!

Auntie Zoe cooking our steaks?
Holly reckons we should put that on our Christmas list for Santa Paws to deliver!

Until then, it's back to the Doggy Scoff!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret and Monty de Ferret!

Bored, Bored, Bored!

Hi Woofers!

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret and Monty de Ferret are BORED!

We have never had such a boring day!

See, it's like this.

First thing this morning we headed out for our walk a whole half an hour earlier than normal!

I mean, we were still asleep!

The ferrets were snoozing so they didn't know what day it was!

We got back and it was still dark!

Then, Old Two Legs packed up his laptop and headed off into the sunrise leaving us with The Missus.

Both Holly and I sat at the bedroom window waiting for OTL but he never appeared!

For the rest of the day TM was busy washing the black smoke off the ceiling where she over did the frying one time!

Holly and I came down to have a look but to be honest, it was boring, in fact it was more fun when she set the pan alight in the first place!

The lunchtime walk was boring 'cos we were rushed about 'cos we could see rain on the horizon and we didn't fancy getting our tails wet!

We are still watching out the window but so far OTL has not shown. TM keeps saying he will be here soon but so far, nothing!

So, I will apologise for the lack of photo's and the exciting tale of Doggy Doo's and blame it all on OTL.

See you tomorrow.

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret and Monty de Ferret.

Sunday is a Good Day!

Hi Woofers!

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret and Monty de Ferret enjoying a very lazy Sunday!

It started this morning when, according to The Missus, Old Two Legs was having a bad dream. 'Oh No!' he was crying out and waking us all up!

I'll sort him says Holly and gives his ear a good lick. 'Oh! Not Again' cries OTL and this time TM gives him a poke in the back.

'Grrumph...........No Not THat' explodes OTL!

So, I rolled over and gave him a good kick, that stopped him.

You see, he was having a nightmare and he was standing at the counter in the vets and was paying for a visit by all the woofers and all the ferrets at the same time!

I think that would be enough to give anyone nightmares!

Lucky for us it was just before getting up time and he fell out of bed mumbling something about being beaten up by a band of hooligan vets waving cold stethoscopes!

The morning walk was as dark as normal and there was rain in the air, so, we didn't hang about too long and were soon back on our bed snoozing out tails off!

Lunchtime came and we rattled the ferret cages to see if anyone wanted to come for a walk buy they were all asleep!

No Thanks, we are just Resting our Eyes, you go on your own!
 We didn't mind 'cos that means we can charge around at our own speed without waiting for ferrets to finish sniffing!

When we got down to the sea shore it was all sunny and warm. You know those ferrets were missing out on a great walk!

Winter? More like early Spring!
 We saw the Little Egret again and this time he had some of his mates spread about over the mud flats.

Just flap my web feet in the mud and the worms think it is raining!
 Holly and I found an enormous sniff that spread all over the place. Now, either there was someone with a very big wee of this woofer had been back and forth a number of times!

Yeah! Over here as well!
 As we were finishing the sniff we heard a commotion going on off shore, it was another Little Egret chasing off an intruder that had tried to take over the prized place on the mud!

'Oi!'  Naff Off, This is My Bit of mud!'
That was it, fight over in a couple of seconds!

Back home we decided to have a really lazy day, so, out came the Star Wars DVDs and we sat down to watch as many as we could before going to bed.

Now, all together..........A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret and Monty de Ferret.

First Day of Winter!

Hi Woofers!

It's Daisy, Holy, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret and Monty de Ferret welcoming you to Winter!

Yep! First day of Winter today and not a flake of snow to be seen!

We were out early as normal and didn't bother with the camera 'cos there was no sign of a sun rise and the clouds were so low we could hardly see our paws in front of us!

By the time we had got home The Missus had packed all her stuff and had headed of to the village hall for some glue slapping!

That left us to enjoy the day!

After the cage cleaning we settled down to a bowl of chicken while Old Two Legs dashed around with the jet powered vacuum cleaner!

We were going to take out Monty and Wendy but OTL had been at all of us with the ant bug stuff he puts on our shoulders.

Holly and I got a splash and the ferrets got splashed as well. The ferrets hate this stuff and they wriggled about and show off something rotten!

So, lunchtime came and they weren't talking to OTL and went back into their beds and refused to come out!

Mind you, they didn't miss much and we just managed to miss the rain!

Just for a laugh, I decided to get all nautical!

There's rain over to the port side
 We spotted the Little Egret paddling in the mud looking for some lunch.

Worms, crustaceans, in fact anything that's edible!
We don't often see the Little Egret, mind you he doesn't stop for a chat, more interested in eating!

He didn't hang about ''cos there was rain coming in off the sea.

There be rain off our stern!
 All Holly said was for me to 'Stop Showing Off'!

Trouble with her is she is a show off that doesn't like someone else showing off!

Back home we had some more chicken then settled down on the chair with OTL giving him a cuddle while he read his book he started when we were last on holiday!

Good news about Archie Babes medication but not so good about the lack of cod! We can understand about him not getting any chips but a bit of cod goes down a treat!

We're off to see what OTL has for dinner, better not be scoff!

See you tomorrow.

Luv,

Daisy, Holy, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret and Monty de Ferret.

Last Day of Autumn!

Hi Ho Woofers!

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret and Monty de Ferret here!

I don't know what it has been like for Archie Babe doing his Guarding Job but down here we had a dark morning but it brightened up later as the day progressed.

We left the ferrets in bed on our morning walk, mainly 'cos they were asleep in their new beds!

Mind you, they had to sleep in the new beds 'cos Old Two Legs had taken all the other bedding out!

Miss May has a thing about sleeping in the folds of a blanket, so, she was right put out that OTL had been messing with her bed!

Both her and Eric were cuddled up together first thing so no problems there!

After the lunchtime walk OTL put the blanket back and she was straight under and curled up in a snoozy ball!

When we went for our walk the sun was shining and there was a gently breeze blowing as well. That didn't make the ferrets happy 'cos they still wanted to be home in a nice warm bed!

OTL put them down on the football field but they didn't show any enthusiasm for running about!

May had a sniff but Eric refused to move!
 They both got carried down to the Sea Front. Now, we fully sympathise with OTL, there he was cuddling two snoozy ferrets in his arms while at the same time poo bag in hand was chasing after us woofers! Picking up our poo while keeping he ferrets from ripping the bag open makes for a comical scene!

Down on the Sea Wall both ferrets were offered a chance of a run, Eric stayed where he was while May asked if she could get back into OTL's arms!

I'm going off this walking lark, can I have a cuddle?
 Holly, who was standing by thought she would have a joke and asked OTL if she could have a cuddle as well!

Aw! Come on, just a little cuddle?
When we got back to the football field both Eric and May got down and trotted across the field while Holly and I went of sniff hunting!

Back home to our day beds and a snooze before dinner (Doggy Scoff) but we can still look forward to mugging OTL for a nibble!

Tomorrow The Missus is off to the village hall for some glue slapping, so that means we can have some fun watching TV and spreading crumbs all over the place!

Now we are not sure about this Fred Basset that Auntie Sue is cuddling up to, we know a few Basset Woofers down here, they are an unruly pack when they get going!

End of the month, end of the Autumn and tomorrow it's the first day of Winter!

It's all happening!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret and Monty de Ferret.
