We've been looking for camels!

Hi Woofers!

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

It's been another boiling hot day here in North Kent! The Missus said she heard thunder in the distance last night but no one else did!

There was some damp patches on the patio this morning when we looked but as Holly said, 'It could have been Sparrow Wee!'

The warm weather didn't stop us going out for a walk along the beach and today we took Fred and Wendy with us 'cos they didn't get a walk yesterday.

We met up with all the 'Lads' and young Marley ran ahead of all the gang to get his Tum Tickle from Old Two Legs!

When your ready OTL!
There is one thing about Marley, he sure knows how to pose!

Holly and I spent a really lazy morning in the shade by the pond. The jar OTL fitted up with a supply of water that pours out of the jar was making tinkling sounds as the water poured into the pond which is OK to begin with but after a time it just reminds you that you need a wee and it's time to go out again!

Lunchtime we left May and April at home 'cos it was just too hot for ferrets. They were having a great time snoozing on the frozen blocks OTL had put under their beds!

OTL says that what with all this 'Global Warming' if it gets any hotter we will find herds of camels roaming about with sad faces. Why they should have sad faces rather confussed us until OTL explained that camel have two humps and anyone who has the hump has a sad face!

Yeah, well, if they get anywhere near my chews I'll get the hump as well!

Down on the beach we saw another Ro-Ro Car Transporter floating off to sea and it was Holly who called out 'Look! Floating Brick!'

Another floating brick off to Hamburg!
 The tide had got out so I didn't get a swim but I did find some water coming out of the drain, it was right whiffy and I decided to keep well away!

That sniffs horrid!
We have been looking for a good place to photograph the chimney when is gets blown up or rather down!

They have been knocking holes in the bottom of the chimney so we reckon it will be pretty exciting when it does go. OTL says that someone told him it will come down on the seventh September at nine in the morning but OTL reckons he needs confirmation before getting all the camera gear out!

TM has been given the job of searching FaceAche for information!

We have spotted TM taking sausages out of the freezer so it looks like 'Bangers and Mash' tonight, Yum Yum!

See you all tomorrow!

Luv,

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

Another Heat Wave!

Hi Woofers!

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

Phew! It has bee up near 30 degrees today, definitely not the weather to go running about the house!

In fact we have all found a shady spot and have spent the day 'Relaxing', well all except Old Two Legs who has his daily 'Jobs' to do!

Now then, Izzy, eleven teeth out!!!!!!!!

Gawd, that is nearly half a mouth full!

I can see you drinking through a straw for a while!

My teeth are OK and Holly has a couple that are sort of crooked but not ready to be yanked out!

I hope they gave you knock out drops before they started on you!

We took May and April down the beach this morning but April spent most of the time sitting in the ferret bag while May was dancing about all over the place!

We said 'Hello' to the 'Lads' and that big soppy Bozo called Marley came charging down the hill and rolled onto his back at OTL's feet asking for a Tickle on the Tum!

It's almost embarrassing!

Little April decided to stay in the ferret bag as we headed back to the car but May found a sniff and got herself a good roll before OTL spotted her and called her a 'Smelly Ferret!

Sniffs R Us!
 I was going to have a swim but the water wasn't deep enough yet so I decided to wait until later.

When we came back at lunchtime the water had all gone! However, I did spot a sailing boat out beyond the mud banks but it was too far to make out what it was, other than an old sailing boat.

Can't tick this off in the book!
One of the nice things about heading back to the car is we can have a rest under the bench on top of the hill. There is a super shadow from the bench and also the concrete is still cool!

Betcha wish you could get in here with us!
 The ferrets got their frozen blocks again and spent the day alternating between beds with the frozen blocks and those without, but mostly they stayed with the frozen blocks and Wendy even got under the bed to lick the frozen blocks!

I can sniff Lambs Heart being taken out of the oven so I'm off for a feed!

See you tomorrow and Izzy, stay away from the ice cubes!

Luv,

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

OTL got stabbed today!

Hello Woofers!

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

It's another hot day today, yesterday we didn't take Fred and Wendy for a walk yesterday 'cos it was too hot. That means the pair were in 'Fidget Mode' which means that they are likely to get into trouble!

Old Two Legs decided that May and April should stay at home while Fred and Wendy came out this morning, just to run off some steam!

Well, it was still rather warm but both ferrets had fun and had a great time running and rolling in the grass on our way down to the beach.

On the beach we all had a run around and Holly and I decided to start a hole.

Of course, the ferrets were being ferrets and inquisitive! As soon as I started an hole over came Freddy to see what we were doing and offer some advice on hole digging!

It looks a bit saggy around the edges!
 Cheeky ferrets but they were right about the edges!

Well, it's deep enough but not very tidy!
Back home the ferrets were allowed out for a rampage while OTL cleaned the cages. When he finished he put the frozen blocks under their beds and when they went back in it took no more than a couple of minutes for them to find the cool beds!

OTL's next job was to go and get a 'Blood Test', Holly says that he must have blood 'cos when May gives him a playful nip there is always some blood!

Apparently, this doesn't count and he had to give a gallon or so to do tests!

Off he went and he told us later that they stabbed him with a whacking big needle and emptied his arm of blood! A whole arm full! At least he didn't have to pay them for doing it, although he says he has been paying all his life so this was just 'Collecting some Interest on the Account'!

It must have been bad 'cos they stuck a cotton wool ball on the hole and a plaster to hold it in place while his arm gets better!

Poor OTL had to have a sit down when he got back and Holly and I gave him a cuddle as well!

Lunchtime came and May and April stayed at home again because of the heat but Holly and I headed out to the beach.

You know, if it were not for the poo and a good wee, we would rather have stayed at home in the cool!

Holly was first onto the beach and was straight up to the shade of the Sea Wall to lay down in a puddle of seaweed and water!

You don't know what I'm laying in!
 I wandered on looking for deeper water when I heard a woofing up in the air, it was one of those Long Tailed Yorkie Woofer, a bit like Izzy but with no manners!

Blooming tourist!

Go and find your own sniffs, these are ours!
 It was a warm walk, Holly and I made use of every bit of shade we could find. The shade under the bench is always good!

Yeah! Just five minutes more please!
 It was good to get back home again, cool water and some real shade in OTL's office!

It's good news from Archie Babe having got rid of the fleas. So far we have not been troubled with them, Ticks, yes, Fleas, No!

Must be the Jollop OTL puts on us each month that keeps them away!

Now we are off to see if it is worth mugging OTL for some dinner but it will be habit rather than a need to feed, it's just too hot!

Mind you, one of the frozen blocks the ferrets have tucked under their beds wouldn't go amiss!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

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

A Visit to The Forest Again!

Hi Woofers!

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

Hasn't it been warm today? Well down here in North Kent we are up to 29 degrees C at he moment!

Pheeew!

First thing April did when she got to the beach was to go for a walk in the wet mud! She said her paws were on fire!

Oooooh! That is better!
Mind you, it wasn't too long before she was back in the Ferret Bag again and watching the world go by!

Boo!
Holly, May and I had to walk all the way back but we knew there would be a bowl of water waiting for us all when we got back to the car!

Race if you want but I'm going to walk!
Back home we all headed for the bed for a snooze, that was until the Caravan Mender Man arrived and Holly and I gave him a real 'Woofer Welcome' as he was banging on the door.

You'd have thought by now that he would have learnt how to press the door bell!

We left him to it as we headed off to the carrier with a parcel that had to go today.

Old Two Legs had decided that it was too hot to take the ferrets out walking in this heat and as both Freddy and Wendy were snoring their tails off it seemed a shame to wake them!

Off we went and after dropping off the parcel OTL asked if we wanted to go down The Forest!

I ask you, Does a Woofer want a Sniff?

In no time we were into the forest looking for HeeLand Coos!

Come on! Forest this way!
 As we went around the corner we almost bumped into a Short Horn Coo!

Hey! called Holly where's the HeeLand Coos?

There was no answer 'cos The coo was too busy eating grass and stuff. Holly did say that if we started to eat grass OTL would be telling us off!

Mmmm! Not a bad patch of grass this is!
 Holly and I were enjoying all the sniffs we had been missing out on all this time. Mind you, the majority of sniffs were based of Coo Poo!

This is bad, not even one Squirrel Poo anywhere!
 Holly was right, even I couldn't find a trace of Squirrel Poo anywhere! Mind you, in a couple of months or so we should be getting all the nuts falling and being stored ready for Winter Time!

No matter where we looked, we spotted Coo's everywhere, hiding in the bushes and behind trees!

If it didn't have horns you would think it was Holly Chops!
You know, they don't even use Poo Bags like wot we have to!    

OTL has promised us we can go back again soon and who knows, we might get to see a squirrel!

See you all tomorrow!

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss April, Miss Wendy and not forgetting Freddy de Ferret!

Holly makes some new friends!

Hi Woofers!

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

Another fun day here in North Kent! It started off with Old Two Legs over sleeping again and that also means we had an extra half an hour in bed as well!

Mind you, the ferrets were making a racket 'cos they don't do 'Over Sleeping', they are either awake or asleep and there is nothing in between!

First thing, about six thirty is the time OTL arrives with their Lactose Free Milk and a nibble of chicken strips!

Fred and Wendy enjoy their milk in the cage while May and April enjoy a rampage around the office getting into as much trouble as they can!

Pretty soon we were down the beach and ferreting about!

As we were driving down towards the beach there appeared some sun beams through the clouds and they looked super but we couldn't stop 'cos of the traffic so we had to wait until we hit the beach before OTL got the camera out!

A Little Ray of Sunshine!
Miss April had decided she would stay snuggled down in OTL's jacket pocket and watch the world go by!

A Pocket Sized Ferret!
 We got back home and OTL had to go out so Holly and I enjoyed a big bowl of freshly cooked chicken!

The Missus had agreed that if OTL wasn't back in time she would take us for a walk over The Farm, which she did!

Before we got back home, OTL had arrived and got Wendy and Fred all done up in their harnesses.

He was just about to sneak out when we arrived back home!

So, we get a second lunchtime walk!

Holly met up with some mini TL's she had come across the other day and she stopped to say 'Hello' but they were more interested in some game on their phones!

Holly's new friends!
 After a short while Holly got bored with sitting there being ignored so she headed down to the beach to see if the water was warm enough for a paddle!

Holly is thinking about it!
Then she turned around, headed back to the sand and sat down in the mud!

Wot a Bozo!

It only comes half way up a woofer!
I was right around the other side of the rocks paddling for all I was worth!

Holly said that it was too deep to go in any further and she headed back to the grass where she feels a lot safer!

Not sure what OTL has for dinner tonight but we will do our best to help him!

See you all tomorrow!

Luv,

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

Still Shredding but almost finished!

Hi Woofers!

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

Well, what news from Archie Babe! Fleas!

You know, Old Two Legs told us about Mutters, a Golden Labrador that used to live in our house. He had to be taken to the vets on account of his ear wax. While sitting in the waiting room a flea managed to sneak onto his tail!

Well, the vet spotted it and was about to grab the flea but OTL jumped in quick, grabbed the flea and crushed it! The vet looked mortified!

OTL had to buy some anti flea stuff but never saw a flea again! OTL reckons the vet has a box where he keeps a stock of fleas and lets one out when the waiting room is full, just to help sales of dog care products!

Mind you, it is worth giving those hedgehogs a wide berth you never know what they have been rolling in!

We were up early this morning 'cos The Missus demanded the car today 'cos she was doing a 'Master Class' at a local Craft Shop. So, that means we had to get out early and in fact it was so early that little April decided to stay in OTL's coat pocket and catch up on her snoozing!

There were a few other 'Early Morning Woofers' who we hadn't met for some time so we were a little 'Cautious'  as we passed on the path!

Of course May was a bit fed up with being picked up and carried while they went on their way!

There was no rain but the sky looked as if it had rain up there and was just looking for somewhere to drop it all!

Go on, rain on Essex!
Back home we enjoyed a snooze while OTL was shredding the last of the old paperwork. He said he had shredded ten years of paperwork and copy invoices!

Lunchtime arrived and the shredder overheated and stopped with just twenty two pages of rubbish left to go!

OTL mumbled something rude and decided that we should all go Walkies!

Yeah!

We timed it just right to see a 'Liquid Gas Ship' come into dock!

Holly reckons there is enough gas in the ship to hold a 'Crop', I wouldn't be so brave!

Full of Gas!
 Fred and Wendy had a play on the beach but because it is Sunday we have to keep an eye open for woofers off their lead!

OK, carry on digging, I'll keep watch!
 Good Holly Chops, she did a good job 'cos I was off chasing the ball again, in the water!

Look, I got it!
 After getting home OTL finally finished all the shredding and now we have another six bags of shredded paper waiting for the dustbin men next week!

TM is due home soon and we reckon there might be a mugging or two tonight, if we give her a warm welcome!

Holly and I will be sitting on the head rest of the chair, just inside the front door waiting to give her a Woofers Welcome!

See you all tomorrow!

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss April, Miss Wendy and not forgetting Freddy de Ferret.

Saturday and Marley gets a sniff of Ferret!

Yo Woofers!

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

What sort of day have you had? Here it has been all fun and games!

It started off with two Wormy Men singing songs as they dug! I mean, it's bad enough having to listen to Old Two Legs singing in the shower without having to listen to a Wormy Man singing about 'Sixteen Tons'!

'You dig sixteen tons and what do you get? Soggy Boots and a Worm that's Wet!'
OTL says it's an old song, it must be very old 'cos we haven't hear of it before!

While the Wormy Man was singing his boots off we spotted Max and Oscar coming down the Sea Wall with that big Bozo of a woofer called Marley!

Hey! Look! Max & Oscar!
Marley was all over OTL like a mud bath and spent most of the time rolling around on his back while getting his tummy tickled! He did stop for a while and was asking about Miss May, like, 'what does she taste like?'

Do you have them for breakfast?
OTL said that she tastes like a ferret and offered to give him a sniff. We warned him that it wasn't the best sniff he could have but Marley insisted that he should try!

OTL lifted May up and poked her tail at Marley's nose.

Oh! Yeeerk!
'I don't think I'll want to do that again' he said and started coughing and sneezing, at the same time!

Max thought it was great fun and asked.........................

Go On, Go On, Do it again!
Marley said he would rather eat sea weed! Holly said it would taste better and there was plenty on the beach!

Sea Weed Sarnie anyone?
Lunchtime we were back and were dodging in and out of the rain. OTL spent time studying the rain radar and said there was an hours 'Window'.

I do love it when he gets all Technical!

Now you can tell it has been raining 'cos the rain drops are still on the Wild Sweat Pea blooms.

Pretty!
The tide was coming in fast and as OTL had the ferret bag with him, he dug out the rubber ball and I went chasing it in the water while doing the 'Doggy Paddle'!

Just look at that swimming style!
Mind you, after I had finished I had to wait until I got back to the car before getting a good rub down with the towel. Freddy said that I could have a roll in the grass to get the drips off me.


What a Drippy Dog!
Back home OTL sat down to a late lunch and watched some of the Olympic Games while I cuddled up on his lap to get the last damp bits off me!

Now what is all this about Archie Babe being kicked out of the bedroom, that is just not on!

I reckon I would have sat outside the door and Hoooooowled my tail off!

Mind you when I reckon we have been locked in the bedroom too long after the ferrets have been cleaned out, I jump up and give the door a good bashing with my paws, that gets OTL's attention!

So, no bathroom floor today, OTL got time off 'cos of his eye, which is completely blood red but is not so painful.

I can see that there will be a day next week when he will get 'Instructions'!

See you all tomorrow!

Luv,

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

Friday, 19 August 2016

Wot a Friday!

Hi Woofers!

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

Ever have one of those days that start out wrong and then it just gets worse?

Well, it has been one of those days today!

Let me tell you all about it!

Early this morning, about ten past five, Old Two Legs woke up with a small nose bleed, nothing to worry about but as he was waking he felt that someone had poked him in his left eye. So, after sorting out his nose, which is nowhere as good looking as mine, he turned his attention to his eye.

Looking in the mirror he saw that half of his eye was blood red and getting worse!

So in his best 'South London Accent' he says to The Missus.....'ere, take a butchers and me eyeball.

TM took one look and was dialling 111 on the telephone to get some 'Technical Advice'.

After a load of questions regarding his current health it was decided that he wasn't suffering a heart attack or a stroke and nor was he suicidal. So, the ambulance was called back to base and The Samaritans went back to manning the phones!

The advice was, get to a doctor and get your blood pressure tested!

He took himself off to the doctor who did all the checks and decided that all was OK and the eye will return to normal over the next couple of weeks!

Regarding the nose bleed, well, an appointment is to be made to see a specialist and get his nose cauterised. Seems he had this problem some ten years ago!

As OTL didn't feel like driving, TM took us around the Farm before pinching the car to go out!

Holly and I were in the bedroom when this man comes banging at our door! Holly and I give him the 'Woofers Welcome' but it seems he was expected. OTL had arranged for him to come and mend a couple of things in the caravan and get it all sorted before we go away on holiday.

Well, the man was working very hard and finished around midday and has made an appointment to come back next week to fit some other bits he found had failed.

So, the bill for repairs is just a bit more than OTL had planned! Now, he wasn't actually weeping blood but he didn't look too happy!

Lunchtime came and he gathered up Fred and Wendy, got Holly and I into the car and off we went to the beach. We only got as far as the car park 'cos as we started to walk out of the car park the heavens opened up and the rain came down, in bucket loads!

That was it, everyone back in the car and we will come back later!

It was later that Fred and Wendy decided to stay in bed so it was just Holly, me and OTL who hit the beach!

I found a tennis ball on the beach and OTL tossed it into the sea, which was just past High Tide, but I didn't care and splashed straight in to get the ball back!

Come here ball!
Now, this 'ere tennis ball was jut a little too big to go into my mouth and every time I tried ti grab it, it would bounce off my teeth and move further and further out to sea!

Hang on, this is getting deep!
OTL called out to me to leave the ball but I wanted to get it back 'cos it was the only ball we had!

The other ball was in the ferret bag and the ferrets were at home snoozing!

OTL said that at one point he was considering taking his boots and jacket off ready to swim out to rescue me!

Finally I got the ball into my mouth and headed back to the beach which was a bit further away than normal!

By the time I got back we had been joined by Polly, Boo and Bryn.

Polly was all for helping me chase the ball into the water but decided to let me fetch it 'cos her legs were too small for deep swimming!

Come on girl, you can do it!
 Of course, Polly was all over OTL 'cos she fancies him rotten and loves having her tummy tickled by OTL!

Come on, gissa tickle!
That Polly can be a right tart, just like Holly!

They both stayed on the shore watching me play 'Chase' with the ball and young Boo was dead impressed!

Why does she stick her tail up in the air?
Bryn is a bit like Holly, we don't do wet! You can see by the look on her face that water is best left to the fishes!

You can keep that lot, I'm staying dry!
Back home again OTL went back to shredding and managed to fill up six big bags of shredded paper for the dustbin men to take. Next week they will be able to take the next six!

Tomorrow OTL says he will try to have a go at the bathroom floor, that should be fun!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

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

Another day of paper shredding for OTL.

Hi Woofers!

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

Well, it has been warm and sunny down here with a balmy breeze just to keep the nose cool!

We do like this weather, it sort of make everything just right!

Even little April was having fun on the beach checking all the sniffs!

I'm sure it's a Nargle Trail!
 One thing I like is that no matter what is happening, us woofers have always got an eye on April to make sure she is OK.

May is always running back to give her a sisterly cuddle and when we are walking along the top path she always walks right next to her as if she is holding her up!

OK Sis, I'm still here!
 Lunchtime we left off the paper shredding 'cos the machine was getting too hot!

Old Two Legs has got loads of files to shred, I reckon he will still be at it next week!

The Dustbin Man will be in for a shock when he sees the number of bags there will be outside the house, all filled with shredded paper!

Lunchtime we were down the beach again and we timed it just right, the tide was in and right up the top of the beach!

It was a bit rougher than yesterday and the waves were crashing onto the beach. I couldn't make up my mind about going in for a dip. One moment I thought, 'Yes' then the next wave came crashing in and I thought 'No'!

Maybe or Maybe Not, that is the question!
 Fearless Freddy wandered down to the waters edge to get a better look at the waves and then after one got a bit too close said the I was 'On My Own' and scuttled back to OTL!

I'm not going any where near that lot!
 I then got all big and brave and tried a quick paddle but the waves came crashing in and tossed me back onto the beach!

Maybe Not!
 I could hear Holly Chops laughing her tail off and turned to look.

Of all the Bozo Woofers you take the biscuit!
 That was it, back to the car and home for a snooze!

See you tomorrow!

OTL is getting a Chinese Meal tonight so we should be in for some serious muggings!

Luv,

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

Fearless Freddy saves the Day!

Hi Woofers!

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

It has been another super sunny day, there was a slight breeze, just enough to keep your nose cool!

This morning we met up with young Dave who we hadn't seen for a little while. He was well chuffed to see Old Two Legs again and as a reward OTL gave his tail a tickle which Dave just loves!

Super to see you OTL!
 While Dave was getting his tail tickled Holly Dog came bounding down the hill to see Dave 'cos she hadn't seen him for ages!

Yo! Dave, long time no sniff!
Back home OTL has been clearing out some old paperwork and shredding it in the machine.

Trouble with OTL is that he has so much paper to shred that the machine keeps overheating!

Lunchtime we managed to time it just right, when we got to the beach the tide was right the way in and up the top of the beach. The only problem was that there was too much sea weed sloshing about and it looked really Yucky!

She hasn't gone in there has she?
I was straight in but I must admit the waves were a bit rough! As much as I went into the water the harder it got and I was even chased out of the water a couple of times!

Look, the water is chasing her out again!
OTL was throwing the rubber ball for me but he was keeping it close to the shore, even so, it was still a bit rough and a couple of times I got water up my nose!

The ferrets were walking along the shore, just on the edge of the water as it came crashing up the beach, Freddy just loves a wet tummy in this warm weather!

I like wet sniffs!
I was sneezing my tail off and decided to leave the ball in the water, OTL said I should go and get it from the sea but I just couldn't stop sneezing!

Freddy said he would go and get it for me and waddled off down to the waters edge and after the ball!

Don't worry Daisy Dog, I'll get it for you!
Freddy looked dead impressive as he headed towards the ball!

He got out to the ball, grabbed it and headed back towards OTL!

OK, I'll give it to OTL
 He decided that OTL should get it 'cos I was still sneezing and anyway OTL would dry it, squeeze the water out and put it back into the bag!

Here you are OTL, all safe and soggy!
 Holly was still sitting on the Sea Wall and reckons that Freddy should get my Teeth Cleaning Chew as a reward!
Give that Ferret a treat!
 Well, after all that excitement we headed back home and enjoyed a snooze while OTL carried on overheating the shredder!

See you all tomorrow!

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss April, Miss Wendy and 'Fearless' Freddy de Ferret.
