Eric gets some exercise!

Hello Woofers!

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

Last night Old Two Legs was a naughty OTL, he sneaked two slurps of malt and a whole packet of honeycomb bits!

This morning he was a whole hour late in getting up!

Mind you, Holly and I were still fast asleep when The Missus stuck her head into the bedroom and shouted for OTL to get up!

She is SOOOO LOUD!

Down on the beach we could see the sky and the trails left by the jets!

.......and the sun isn't even up yet!
Looking across the River Medway you could see the colours of the sunrise lighting up the sky!

Just look at those jet trails!
 OTL was clicking away and he just had to try the flash!

It would be great were it not for the wind!
 The wind was terrible, it had blown all the clouds away but the wind chill was terrible!

It improved when the sun crept over the horizon and you could feel the difference but the wind was still blowing!

........well, at least there is no snow!
 Lunchtime the wind had dropped down a bit so Eric agreed to a walk on the beach. Miss May was having a great time rolling in all the sniffs and Eric was walking a short way, gets a lift from OTL and then gets down again!

OK, I'm now exhausted, I need a lift!
 The tide was right in and there was only a small bit of beach we could walk on!

It's a good job it's not an on shore wind or we cold get washed out the sea!
So, while the rest of the country is suffering from six feet of snow we get wind and sunshine!

Mind you, later this afternoon we had a few rain showers pass us by, but no snow!

Holly is not too happy about that 'cos she has just got a new snow board that she got from Amazon at a really good price!

See you all tomorrow!

Luv,

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

Windy or Wot!

Hi Woofers!

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

Hey! We have been watching the news and see that there is loads of snow all over the place, except where we live!

What do we get? A Cold Wind up our tails and watery eyes!

Old Two Legs has been getting up earlier and taking us for a walk down on the beach but that messes up the photographs so this morning he tried something new.

Long exposures!

30 seconds at f/5.6!
 No, we didn't think much of it either especially as it was like this.....

Well, at least it's real!
Just for fun I stood still looking at him when he took this picture knowing that my eyes would light up!

Scary or wot!
Finally, he decided to go back to the settings he has used in the past to get another morning shot of Sheerness!
Back to normal again!
At lunchtime we took Eric and May down to the vet, May got a tickle behind the ear and poor Eric got stabbed while OTL got all upset 'cos they took all his money and left him with an empty wallet!

Mind you, it did mean that Wendy and Freddy got a walk at lunchtime, even though Freddy said he would rather be in bed snoozing!

Freddy just doesn't do all this walking stuff and keeps on rolling over and complain about his damaged claw or some other reason why he needs a lift instead of being made to walk!

Now, OTL has a great trick to get him walking.

First of all Freddy and Wendy are put on the ground and Wendy heads off in the direction we are going until she gets to the end of the lead!

Freddy, on the other paw, sits down and asks for a lift, OTL, at the other end of the lead, crouches down and says, 'Come On Freddy'

Freddy thinks he is going to get a lift and runs towards OTL.

Just before he gets to him, OTL stands up and walks a few more paces  in the direction of the car. Freddy sits down again until he sees OTL crouch down again and Freddy thinks he is going to get a lift and off he goes trying to catch OTL before he gets up.

Of course he doesn't but finally we all get to the car and Freddy finally get picked up along with Wendy who has been laughing her tail off at Freddy's attempts to get a lift!

Hang on! I'm going as fast as I can!
OTL got a load of birthday cards yesterday for his birthday including one from Archie Babe which had loads of snow and mountains.

We could do with a drop of snow here just so we can all have a roll in it!

Maybe tomorrow?

Bye bye for now.

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Foot Sore Freddy and Eric de Ferret!

Another candle on the cake for OTL!

Yo Woofers!

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

Well, it had to happen, another candle for OTL's cake, trubble is, we have run out of cake tins big enough to put all the candles on the top, now we have to stick them in the side of the cake and it looks like a copy of the Mary Rose warship with all it's guns poking out the side!

It has set the fire alarm off twice and blackened the ceiling in the kitchen!

The Missus found it easier lighting all the candles with a gas blow torch, and asbestos gloves to carry it with!

Holly and I gave him one of our 'Happy Birthday' licks and jumped all over him at five thirty this morning!

He enjoyed that!

Now we have saved up the Birthday Song until now just so you can join in, ready?

After 9....................one, twenty seven, NINE!

Happy Birthday to Yooo
Have you had a good poooo!
We've saved you this sniff,
Happy Birthday to Yooooo!

As a special treat TM is cooking him a curry and afterwards he gets to choose which crafting channel TM will watch tonight!

He gets all the good jobs!

Like, this morning, off we went to the beach but it was still dark and we told him that birthday or no, if he starts flashing that light we would wee all over it, and his boots!

You know, OTL could have seen nearly twenty six thousand sunrises!
We are going to give him a Birthday Snuggle tonight and help him finish off the shortbread!

See you all tomorrow!

Luv,

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

Wet and Damp!

Hi Woofers!

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

Wot a day! It was windy and chilly and DARK this morning!

If fact it was so dark Old Two Legs didn't even take his camera with him when we went for our early morning stroll!

Mind you, the wind was a little too cold so a long leisurely stroll really wasn't on the cards, it was a quick wee and a dash!

Unfortunately, OTL had to go out to do some work and he wasn't too happy 'cos when he arrived at his customers, it was raining and as you would have guessed, he was working outside!

Poor OTL!

We, on the other paw were tucked up warm and comfortable on the bed, looking out of the window for his return!

He arrived back just about 'Walkies Time' but we had different ideas 'cos it was pouring down and there was no way we were going out in that, rain coat or no!

We left him for a while to get on with the reports he had to write regarding the mornings expedition!

Later, the rain stopped so off we went. As we were crossing the football field we spotted a young Bozo Labrador chasing a ball. That was until he spotted us, he then came bounding over looking like he was going to cause some trouble!

He got to Holly first and received a very grumbly woof from her!

She was not feeling her best you see!

Next he chased me around a bit until I also gave him the woofers warning!

It was then that OTL managed to grab him as he passed OTL and he held onto the Bozo until his Two Legs could get the lead on him!

That will teach that woofer not to shove his nose up out tails!

Back home OTL got an email through confirming that Wednesday Eric had an appointment with the vet to get him stabbed against Distemper!

It's getting all too technical you know, appointments by email, what ever next, Robot stabbing machines!

we have worked out that OTL has got Venison Steak tonight to help was down his salad so Holly and I are in for some serious nibbles!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

3Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret.

A Suggly Sunday!

Yo Ho Woofers!

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

You know, sometimes, just sometimes, you get a really lazy, snugly, warm and comfortable day and today has been one of them!

We went to bed a little later than normal last night, so that means we woke up a little later, well, Old Two Legs Holly and I did!

The Missus was down stairs playing with her inky stuff and being 'creative' well, that's what she calls it, the rest of us calls it 'Mucky'!

OTL had to go out working, so we were down the beach before the sun got up and that means he is playing with his flash light on the camera, it's a bit off putting when you sneak up on a sniff and half way through inspection there is a blinding flash of light that scares the sniff off!

If he keeps flashing that thing I'll bury it in the sand!
By the time we got home the sun had just poked its head above the horizon but not through the clouds but that was OK 'cos we were snuggled up in the duvet on the bed, all warm and snugly again!

Off went OTL and a little later off went TM!

It was back to snooze an' snuggles until OTL got back.

Of course, we were awake by then and itching to go out for the lunchtime stroll. Today Eric and May came with us 'cos it was warm and sunny and dry!

They hadn't been out for a while and really enjoyed the beach, especially May who was digging holes all over the place!

Come on! There's a Nargle sticking out of that hole!
Being a Sunday, there were loads of new woofers all over the place, so OTL had to keep a sharp look out for woofers on the loose who might take a fancy to a ferret lunch!

Now, because he was keeping watch he couldn't play with his camera, so the quantity of photos was well down, we had just four to choose from for the blog!

Out to sea there was a ship that was drifting around in circles just below low tide mark and we couldn't work out what it was doing. A tug passed close by but didn't stop, so it couldn't have been in too much trouble!

Just going for a Sunday Spin?
Young Eric enjoyed the run across the football field, it's a route back to the car he has never taken so he spotted the car and he and May had a race back, stopping only at the mole hill to have a dig!

Back home OTL did his little bit of work and then came down stairs to watch a bit of TV, there was some super chicken in our bowls and I was 'nose down and tail up' until it had all gone!

Holly didn't touch hers, I think she has a Grumble Tum starting, she gets like that plus the eating grass didn't help!

After that meal I got a teeth cleaning chew and jumped up onto OTL's chair and snuggled up close to him and we both fell asleep!

That's the sort of snuggles I love, all warm and cosy and a chew waiting for when I wake up!

OTL's off tomorrow morning, working again but has promised to take Holly and I out first. That means we will be walking in the dark again and if things go as normal, Holly will have the 'Grubby Bum' which means she will get a wash with the Baby Wipes before a wash an' brush up at home!

See you all tomorrow!

Luv,

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

Another grey day but we are alright!

Hello Woofers!

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

It's been a bit chilly today, mind you, we were up so early that the sun was still in bed!

OK, who pinched the sea?
Old Two Legs tried taking photos of Holly and me but the camera couldn't lock onto us so he ended up with a picture of Sheerness with the fairy lights!

Too dark for the sun!
On our way to the beach we pass the old refinery site that has slowly been taken to bits over the years. All that seems to be left, if you ignore the concrete, are a few storage tanks and these look like they are being torn down!

It won't be long before they disappear all together!
 Down along the Sea Wall it was all grey again, the only colour we saw was a plastic drinks cup!

Waiting for the Spring to get started.
 We did spot a Wormy Man out on the mud flats looking for worms that had lost their way and needed a lift!

Here Wormy Wormy!
 We got back to the football field to find they had started the match so we all stood there for a while watching the game. Holly was getting all excited and kept on jumping up and down calling out 'Come on, on me 'ead'!

On me 'ead sunshine!
Back home it was back onto the sofa, paws up in the air and waiting for The Missus to come back.

OTL is off working tomorrow but he has promised to take us out for our morning walk.

We may get a walk with The Missus if he doesn't get home early enough.

We had Doggy Scoff served up today so it is mugging time tonight but poor OTL has only salad which to be honest is not the best tasting grass we have tried!

We'll be glad when he finishes and gets back to some decent nosh!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

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

Spring is here!

Yo! Woofers!

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

I don't know about you lot but we had a super snooze last night. The Missus stayed awake an hour beyond her normal bed time and Old Two Legs had a slurp of Single Malt!

OTL loves single malt and it always makes him very 'relaxed'! In fact, so relaxed that he was snoring most of the night!

Holly and I always sleep well and if the snoring gets too bad we both jump off the bed and head to the office where our 'Day Beds' are kept and have a snooze in there!

The morning walk was good, we met up with some of the Lads and had a good sniff on the beach.

Ring a Ring of roses, a butt full of noses!
As we were heading off back to the car the sun poked it's head under the clouds and of course, there was OTL clicking away like mad!

Sea Mist to the left, sunshine to the right, not bad?
Back home it was snoozy time again while OTL did his chores then had a game with the ferrets. They all love a game with OTL, sometimes it is 'Chase The Tease' and other times it's 'Tickle My Tummy' or just a cuddle in between raiding the Brambles Biscuits!

OTL is trying to loose a bit of weight 'cos he reckons his tummy is getting too big! Not that we worry too much and as Freddy says, a well proportioned tummy is very 'Manly'!

So, now he has managed to get all temptation out of sight, well that really means that he has finished off all the Choc Chip Cookies and the sweets and the crisps and the Twiglets and all the shortbread!

Now, if he wants a nibble in the afternoon or after dinner he has to nibble at the dried apples or pears that TM has dried in the Dehydrator! Plus he doesn't have a Marmite sandwich at lunchtime but rather a 'Healthy' bowl of freshly made soup from TM's soup maker!

How long he will last is up for grabs at the moment and the only things he is allowed is Blue Cheese and cheese biscuits or a Single Malt! The rest is all Rabbit Food and cold meats!

Poor OTL, he does suffer!

Lunchtime we were out down the beach again and on the way down OTL pointed out the buds beginning to swell on the branches, the first sign of spring!

Look! The first sign of Spring!
 Down on the Sea Wall we saw the clouds above Sheerness catching the setting sun. It made a change from a blanket of grey!

Now, we haven't seen that sort of cloud for a little while!
Back home OTL found out that he is working on Sunday and Monday next week so that means there is a possibility that TM will be looking after us woofers and entertaining the ferrets!

Now that should be fun!

See you tomorrow, we got all day with OTL, starving!

Luv,

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

A Ferrety Day Today!

Hi Woofers!

We're back again, Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret.

It's another sort of grey day today, no blue skies, no wind and not very cold!

There were no waves either!

Is there anyone out there?
There were no ships to be seen and the only other things we saw were sea gulls resting on the breakwater waiting for the tide to go out so they could get their breakfast!

Don't worry lads, it won't be long!
Holly and I walked along the Sea Wall looking for new sniffs but even there it was rather sniffless!

This rain washes all the good sniffs away!
Down on the beach we had our normal race up and down the beach, Holly spotted something in the distance and said it looked like a woofer but when it got closer we saw it was a Two Legs 'Speed Walking', they did look so silly wiggling along!

Do you think they practise that at home in front of a mirror?
Back home we got back on the bed for our snooze while the ferret cages were cleaned and of course, the ferrets had their morning rampage around the house.

After a breakfast of Brambles Biscuits, young Eric decided that he would have a game with the cat tease and do some diving in and out of the bags that  were on the floor!

OK, that's the bags sorted, now, where is that Nargle?
It wasn't long before he found the cat tease 'cos Old Two Legs was waving about over his head!

OK, I've killed it, now, what's next?
Miss May, who is a little older than Eric had her rampage but left the cat tease in preference to the Brambles Biscuits which she spent time hiding in the internal folds of the sofa!

After all that hard work she just had to have a little snooze, on OTL's lap!

Warm and safe on OTL's lap!
Next out for a run was Freddy and Miss Wendy. Now Freddy is more interested in getting into trouble and he spends his time 'Rescuing' his squeaky toys and hiding them in The Missuses card room among all the boxes on the shelves!

'ere! You got my Squeaky?
While Freddy was sorting his 'Babies' out, Miss Wendy was attacking the cat tease, which she just loves!
She chases it around in circles until she gets too dizzy and falls over! Then she tries to chew through the string or bite the ball, making holes with her teeth.

You can see the damage that has been done and also just look at those teeth!

This is how you kill a Nargle!
Poor old Freddy, all this sorting out makes him a little tired and soon we find him 'resting' in the hall way, waiting for OTL to take him and Wendy up to bed!

It right wears you out!
You know it is such a busy time here, no wonder we all need a snooze in the afternoon!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

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

I got Chased by a Big Bozo Woofer!

Hello Woofers!

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

Down this end of the world it has been rather a gentle day today, the weather has been mild, in fact rather barmy!

The sun has been out and there has been some blue sky as well!

The promise of a better day!
It made a change to see the clouds all broken up. Over the past week it seemed that the sky was going to stay all grey and boring but this morning it was getting a little more picturesque!

Now, that's better!
Back home it was the same work and play and Eric was having a game of Chase The Tease with Old Two Legs and managed to rake his teeth across the back of OTL's hand.

The bleeding has stopped now!

Eric offered to lick it clean but OTL said that Eric might just get a taste for OTL and declined the offer!

Now, big news!

OTL normally has his 35mm lens on the camera and has been learning how to use that lens, like, if you want to get a big picture, get closer!

Which is OK except when he gets too close to the edge of a big drop!

Today he decided to change the lens to a 50mm f/1.8 and see what damage he can do with that!

So, first off there were a couple of sea going vessels. One was a real ship while the other was a floating platform with legs that dropped down to the sea bed. In the middle there was a structure that looked like a drilling rig?

Maybe they've discovered oil up the Thames!
On the last high tide a big lump of wood managed to beach it's self, Holly and I had a sniff but there were no interesting sniffs so we left it alone to float off on the next tide!

I don't fancy playing 'Fetch' with this lump!
It was fun on the beach, Holly and I payed chase and I dug a hole while Holly kept running up and jumping over the top of me!

Land on me and I'll bite your tail!
Once we were off the beach we met up with this big Bozo of a woofer, he is the one who wears a yellow jacket and guides a TL who can't see. When he has his jacket on and wearing a harness he is very good and quiet and sensible, however, when he gets off the harness and is allowed to run free, he goes totally potty!

He came storming up to OTL but OTL had seen him before and just managed a tickle behind the ear before the Bozo ran off again.

Off he went and back he came again but this time he wanted to chase Holly and me! Holly wasn't having any of this and stood still in front of him and gave him a severe woofing! That made him stop, except now he decided to chase me!

I don't like big woofers and got a little scared and did my 'Don't bite me' squeal and ran behind OTL!

It was then that his Two Legs called him and walked off while we went down another path!


No Bozo Woofers here!
Let's hope the weather gets better tomorrow 'cos the ferrets are all getting a little stir crazy!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

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

It's Archies Day Today!

Hi Woofers!

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

Hey! It's Archie Babes Birthday today, he is all of six years old, we bet he has been stuffing his chops with loads of treats from all his mates down the street!

From this end of the world we are all in a line, ferrets to the left, woofers to the right and Two Legs in the middle!

OK,............ after three...........Six, twelve, three!

Happy Birthday to Arch,
Stick yer tail in some starch,
Do a poo in the pantry,
Happy Birthday to Yoooooooooooo!

We hope you have had a super day and make a right pig of yourself!

We were up early today and got down the beach while it was still dark, again!

Good Morning Sheerness!
 Once again Old Two Legs was playing with the camera again, so, more photos of our tails!

When he does that I can see where we are going!
 Back home again for a snooze on the bed while OTL cleared up the ferret cages and of course, the ferrets went on the rampage!

Miss Wendy had a great time beating up the cat tease in between beating up Freddy!

Lunchtime came and off we went down the beach where we had a great time tearing around and digging holes in the sand!

Holly doing Mach Nine!
As we headed back home OTL spotted a pink ball hiding in the grass. After he had kicked it out onto the path Holly and I had fun chasing it up and down the path and it landed at OTL's feet!

Come on, throw me again!
It was a great time chasing it but as we got close to the bench on the hill, I lost the ball while I was having a wee and a sniff!

With a bit of luck it will still be there tomorrow and we can carry on with our game!

Back home OTL managed to finish off the VAT thing and I was asleep under the desk while Holly stayed down stairs looking out the windows at the birds!

We will be glad when the Spring weather arrives 'cos we are getting a bit fed up with this grey weather!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

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