Still moving data!

Hello Woofers!

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

Would you believe it? We are still moving data from one place to another! Mostly pictures but so far we have shifted 29,433 items!

We never knew he had taken so many!

Young Eric got himself into trouble this morning, big time!

After we got back from our morning walk, Old Two Legs started to clean the cages out. He opened the door and let Eric and May out for a rampage around the house, as normal. 

Then for some unknown reason he opened the door to Fred and Wendy's cage and changed the water bowl.

Next thing OTL hears is Wendy and Eric screaming!

There was Wendy, teeth clamped around the side of Eric's neck, giving him the old Ferret Death Roll!

In went OTL and managed to get them apart. Wendy was in 'Super Kill' mode while Eric was shaking with fright!

Poor lad, he has never been in a dispute over territory before and all he wanted was a sniff in the cage but instead got a furious ball of fluff and teeth intent on making sure he never forgets whose cage this was!

It took OTL a good ten minutes to calm Eric down and stop him from shaking!

Me thinks a lesson has been learnt!

OTL will only open one cage at a time in future!

Strange isn't it, it is May and Wendy that show aggression but the lads only want a quiet life!

OTL has been working hard today getting last minute orders shifted. Why is it that the customers always leave it to the last minute to order something and then expect you to (a) have it in stock, (b) expect to to drop everything and re-engineer it just for them and (c) get it down to the carrier today for delivery tomorrow morning?

I've never really understood Two Legs!

Hey! Now, what's all this about getting washed and having to wear a Christmas costume? Us woofer have standards to keep you know!

Mind you, OTL has us booked in the Poodle Parlour on the 23rd December! It had just better be a mild Christmas or there will be deep trouble!

The laptop that is controlling the data movement is saying that there is 81.9GB to go and it will take nine hours!

That means we can't do the other five folders before two thirty tomorrow morning!

OTL can stay up if he wants but we are off to bed !

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret (with a sore neck).

It's the Dentist Man Again!

Yo Woofers!

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

Fun time here!

We were up early today 'cos The Missus wanted to use the little car to go out shopping. We tried very hard and got out before the sun came up and we expected to get the ferrets to wee a bit quicker and speed up the sniffing as well!

No chance!

It seemed that every dog we know and a few we don't know, they were all out this morning earlier than normal!

Old Two Legs was picking up and putting down the ferrets all along the path and of course, we just had to stop and say 'Good Morning' to all the woofers and their Two Legs!

Finally we got home to see TM standing there with her arms folded, her foot tapping and her making a 'Tutting' sound!

We all blamed OTL and then scarpered off to the office to keep out of the way!

Once TM had gone OTL had a super game with all the ferrets, Miss Wendy shoved the box of ferret food off the office desk then rushed down the plastic tube so she could start eating it.

Freddy heard all the noise and was there in a flash, well Freddy and food are very much like Holly and food, they sort of go together!

TM got back in time for our afternoon walk but we couldn't hang around 'cos OTL had to visit the dentist to get his bridge re installed!

He has only just got back and he now has a mouth full of re-engineered plastic teeth!

He has got to wait for three months before he can get the real bridge installed and the vet says it will be made of metal!

Holly says we will have to call him 'Old Tin Chops' instead of Two Legs!

Sorry there are no pictures today, you see OTL is moving loads of files from one memory stack to another and doesn't want to overload the laptop!

That means we have to use the 'Office Computer' which doesn't have any photo processing programs!

You will have to wait until tomorrow!

Bye bye for now!

Luv,

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

.....and it came from the Canary Islands!

Hi Woofers!

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

Wot a change from yesterday! It is almost 'Balmy Weather! It got up to 13.3 degrees today! If the tide was in I'd be looking for a swim today!

Mind you, I didn't fancy a swim in the mud, so I stayed away from the muddy bits!

Although it was warmish, there were a surprising large number of clouds in the sky, even blocking out the sun!

Swim Suit or sun hat today?
Miss May was having a great time digging for Weasels on the beach. Eric was more interested in getting back into the ferret bag, he said that during the winter time the only place to be is the bag!

Im sure there are Weasels down here somewhere!
Back home young Eric had a great time diving into the crate full of Ping Pong balls! Old Two Legs did sort of get him wound up 'cos he squeezed all the air out of a rubber ball, hid it at the bottom of the crate and let the air back into the ball, which made a squeaky sound and had Eric diving down to the bottom of the balls!

We didn't get out at lunchtime until a bit later 'cos OTL had to drop a load of stuff off to the accountant, really boring stuff that has come out of the printer machine!

This winter stuff is really strange, like, here we were, just about half way through the afternoon and the sky was getting darker!

It's Winter time that is doing all this!
 Freddy reckons that the days are shorter but the nights are longer but that is OK by him 'cos it means he has more time to sleep!

When he does wake up though, he has a run around hunting stuff! Today on the grass he was chasing a shrew sniff but as you know, shrews are terribly quick if they thing they are being chased!

Any one see where the shrew went?
 While Holly and I were waiting for the ferrets to catch up, we spotted a couple of Yorkie Type woofer in the distance. Holly said that one of them was smaller than Eric!

Now that would be terrible to be smaller than a ferret!

I'm telling you, it is smaller than Eric!
 Both ferrets managed to blag a lift in the ferret bag. We think that OTL just got fed up waiting for them to catch up!

Once we got to the table and bench on the hill, OTL sat down, got the camera out and waited for Wendy and Fred to stick their noses out.

Are we? Oh! I see we are not!
 Freddy didn't come right out of the bag, he just stuck his nose near to the entrance and declared......


No! We're a long way away from the car so I'm going back in!

In fact, he never got out of the bag until OTL emptied him and Wendy out once we got close to the car so in the end they got a chance to run back to the car!

We have managed to get our first holiday booked for next year! Yep, we got booked into a caravan site in Carradale on the Mull of Kintire that has a beach next to it so we can have fun swimming and digging holes!

We will have to pay a bit extra 'cos they charge for 'Second Dogs', one is free but the second is a pound a day!

Good news is, they don't charge for ferrets!

OTL has also sent off a booking form for our second holiday as well. We plan to go to Dorset 'cos The Missus wants to go 'Fossel Hunting' along the Jurassic Coast!

Holly says that if she wants to see a fossil she should have a look at OTL 'cos he is the best fossil we know!

Now, you can bet that for her birthday, TM will want a Fossil Hunters Kit that will include a Rock Hammer and a Rock Chisel!


Still, we might find a dinosaur in the caravan site and then we will get to name it.........mmmm!

What about 'Old Two Leggosaurus' ?

See you all tomorrow!

Luv,

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

No Fog Horns Today!

Yo Woofers!

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

Old Two Legs has discovered a medical break through regarding his 'Problem'!

Now, every so often OTL gets what he calls Ocular Migraine, which makes him see a kaleidoscope of funny shapes in the form of a circle in his eye. Normally a couple of Paracetamol tablets puts him right and the Migraine goes away after a while.

Now he hasn't had one of these attacks ever since he had his cataracts sorted out last year.

Today, while he was clearing May and Eric's cage out, May decided to 'Raid' Fred and Wendy's cage and start a punch up through the bars of the cage with Miss Wendy.

So, there was Wendy on the top shelf in the cage with the bars above her and a ferret bag on top of that with Miss May on top of it all scratching at the bag so she can get nearer to Wendy for a Punch Up!

OTL gets up from his chair and goes to tell May off for starting a fight when Wendy, backs up to the cage wall, just where OTL's nose is level with the cage, lifts her tail and lets off a gigantic 'Ferret Fear Fart', straight towards OTL's nose.............POW!

Poor OTL staggers back shaking his head and blinking his eyes!

Piggin Ell! Quotes OTL, or something very similar!

Ooops! Says Wendy, sorry about that!

Strewth! Says May sitting down on her tail and going cross eyed!

It was then that OTL noticed that his Ocular Migraine was fading fast and he could see!

Now, all we got to do is work out how to bottle 'Wendy's Windy Pops' and we'll make a fortune!

Talking of Wendy, when OTL goes hunting for the ferrets to put them to bed he keeps finding socks tucked under the furniture. We have all been watching each other to find out who it is but so far the culprit has been very sneaky!

Until today.

Miss Wendy trying to make off with OTL's gloves!
Caught in the act!

There are no other pictures today 'cos it has been very foggy down here. It has been so foggy that the Sheerness Fog Horn didn't even bother to sound off.

Maybe he has heard about Wendy's Windy Pops!

Tomorrow we should get rid of the fog, with luck and OTL can play with his camera!

Bye bye for now!

Luv,

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

It's been a 'Late' Day' today!

Hi Woofers!

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

Sorry we are late in blogging today, but blame it on Old Two Legs and The Missus!

We were all late in getting up today, TM didn't start banging pots and pans about until just after five thirty when she normally starts at ten to five!

Well, that means we didn't wake OTL up by licking his ear until six fifteen!

Mind you, we still got out before the sun got up!

Just out of the village OTL stopped by the side of the road to take this picture.

All sort of misty and ethereal!
 We got down to the beach before the sun got up and we were able to watch Mr Sun creep up over Sheerness!
 
Good Morning Mr Sun!
Holly was looking down the Sea Wall 'cos she reckons she can hear woofing in the far distance and she reckons it is Bert chasing after the rabbits again!

Who is that woofing?
 It's strange how as the sun climbs up into the sky, OTL's camera makes the sky and sea much darker than it really was, still, it looks OK now we can see it on the screen!

Red Sky in the Morning, a Ferrets Warning!
 Just before lunch TM and OTL headed off to do some serious shopping, well, TM was and OTL had to carry it all back to the car!

That caused us to be late going out for our midday walk! By then the sun was sinking into the west and doing a sunrise in reverse!

Yellow sky at night means the Ferret's Just Right!
Mind you, both Fred and Wendy were dragging their tails a bit, that was because of the sniffs!

That grass that had been cut is still on the ground and contains a large amount of Weasel Wee, according to Freddy!

Just like us woofers, they have to investigate every sniff!

Oooo! This is a good sniff!
Of course, that means Holly and I have to wait for them, as Holly says, 'This can be a bit Boring'!

It is amazing just how much Weasel Wee can be found in this grass!
OTL has come back with a new remote storage unit that is twice as big as his existing one.

Twice as big in memory, not physical size!

So, now all he has to do is install it!

That means he has to read the instructions!

This will be fun!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

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

Lazy Day Today!

Hello Woofers!

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

Sunday is a quiet day here in this household!

Old Two Legs has been playing with the email accounts trying to get them to talk to each other and get 'Washed' before they arrives at the computer proper. It is supposed to help prevent all those nasty things that mess your computer up and steal your passwords and stuff!

Holly and I have been keeping him company, well we have been snoozing at his feet!

A Snoozing Holly Chops!
 Holly was next to the ferret cage that holds Fred and Wendy and Holly keeps getting woken up when the come down for a wee!

My bed is under the desk and it is out of the way of ferrets and drafts!

A Very Comfortable Daisy Dog!
 Mind you, that was only after our walk on the beach this morning. he sun was creeping over Sheerness but OTL spotted a brave Wormy Man out on the mud digging for worms!

We'll do our digging on the beach thanks!
 May and Eric said it was rather cold in the wind and kept trying to get into the ferret bag! OTL relented a few times 'cos he was getting cold waiting for Eric to finish off his sniffing for Weasel Wee!

Once back home and after the cage cleaning OTL got out the 'Holiday Cage' that has recently arrived. It's a couple of collapsible plastic material things that you could use to contain a mini two legs or a couple of small woofers.

No! Don't get any ideas!

May and Eric had a play in it and decided that it needs some toys and a bed in it before they will use it again!

OTL had some extra play time with Fred and Wendy to make up for yesterday and he managed to wear them out! Freddy was going potty in the bathroom whizzing around on his back while OTL tickled his tummy!

Wendy was having a great time hiding nibbles of food around the house but Freddy was following behind her and eating the stash!

After our morning snooze we headed out for our lunchtime walk.

So, there we were, Holly and I, Wendy and Freddy de Ferret heading down to the beach for a dig in the sand and what did we see?

What the Woofing Heck!
There were loads of fishermen all dressed up in warm clothes and standing next to their fishing rods that were loaded with lead lumps and skewered worms!

It seemed like we had got a contest today!

Mind you, we have had this thing before and no one ever catches anything, except a cold!

We were going onto the beach but OTL said that there would be loads of hooks and lead weights flying about and that it would be too dangerous!

Another five minutes until the start!
There was one who couldn't wait and he ran down to the waters edge to throw his lead weight in the water before anyone else!

Cheat! Cheat! Cheat!
 We didn't hang about 'cos the wind was getting up and both Fred and Wendy wanted to get back to the car!

Back home we got a chew each, Holly and me that is, and we headed off to our snoozing spots!

Not sure what is for dinner tonight but we will be offering to help OTL 'cos his temporary bridge has fallen out again!

Holly reckons that he should just leave it as it is and let him remain ugly every time he smiles!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

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

Back Again!

Hi Ho Woofers!

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

No we hadn't forgotten to post yesterday, it was the computers fault. It sort of rolled over on it's back and did a 'Freddy', you know, Oooooo! Something has broken and I need a cuddle!

The 'cuddle' cost Old Two Legs a few coins, big coins and some long telephone calls!

Then after that was done we found we couldn't get on the Internetty Thingy 'cos the computer wouldn't talk to the server, or rather the server wouldn't talk to the computer!

OTL has spent most of today on the telephone to the man who runs the server and it turned out that 'cos OTL had tried so many times to log in, unsuccessfully, the controlling program blocked him from getting in, even though he had the right password!

Once we had been 'Unblocked' it all started to come back together again!

Here we are again, typing away as fast as we can before it breaks down again and OTL gets even more upset!

Because he can't pass the computer without fiddling, we were late getting down the beach, the sun was up and climbing into the sky!

Sorry we're late Mr Sun!
 Miss May found some weasel wee and had a roll under the old Sea Kale bush!

This is Heaven!
 What was so funny was Miss May trying to blag a lift after rolling in Weasel Wee!

Honest, it wasn't Weasel Wee really!
Back home OTL cleaned the cages out and set about fiddling with the computer again.

First May and Eric had a rampage around the house then it was Wendy and Fred's turn.

Now Freddy just loves having a run around then a game with OTL and a game of 'Tickle on the Tum' but today OTL was more interested in the computer and he didn't spend as much time with Fred and Wendy.

When it was time for them to go back in the cage again, OTL hunted high and low looking for them only to find them both in their beds snoozing their whiskers off!

OTL said he felt guilty and promised to spend more time with them tomorrow!

Lunchtime we were down on the beach but it was cold and windy. Fred and Wendy were insisting on getting back in the ferret bag to keep out of the cold!

When does Spring arrive in this part of the world?
I found a super sniff that I told OTL was Weasel Wee like wot May was rolling in!

Honest OTL, it's Weasel Wee, honest!
 OTL said that it wasn't 'cos it was back down the beach and he told me to get up and stop messing about!

Me?

Messing About?

As we were going up the grass path we spotted young Barney II doing a funny walk, he kept waving his back leg in the air!

If he keeps doing that his leg will fall off!
 He made it to OTL who found a length of bramble bush stuck in his tail and wrapped around his leg!

It wasn't too long before OTL got it all untangled and Barney was off looking for more sniffs!

Who is a clever OTL then!

Not sure what is planned for tomorrow but we will be reminding OTL of the extra games he has to play with Freddy!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

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

Another Chilly Day!

Hi Woofers!

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

Ooooh! It has been a terrible day for Old Two Legs, his computer system is playing up and we have learnt some new words for computers!

We were out early to see the sunrise and if you look carefully you might just see me!

If you sort of squint and wriggle your nose you might just see my tail!
 The sun crept up and by the time we got to the beach I could see where I was going!

Half way through a 'Dig and Whizz'!
 As soon as we got back home and the ferret cages were cleaned, OTL disappeared into the distance clutching a box under his arm and mumbling all manner of curses!

He managed to get back by lunchtime but he didn't have the box with him, Holly reckons he has buried it in the river!

Funny thing though, he didn't say much when we went out for our lunch time walk!

I hope he doesn't bury us!
We had some fun with the ferrets, you see they keep telling us just how sneaky they are and how they can creep up on us.

Well, Holly challenged them to sneak up on her while she was watching the birds fly past!

She pretended not to see them until they were very close and then jumped up and looked all surprised and shocked!

I see Nuffin!
Then, just at the last moment she would jump up in the air woofing 'Ooooooh! A Ferret!'

We all thought it was a good game!

Talking about good games, wot is this about a new battery for Archie Babes car? OTL says that they normally get replaced every two or three years but he left his for eight years and when it did stop working he had to get the engineers out to try to mend loads of things that suddenly lit up faults but none of them said it was a battery!

Cost him a fortune it did!

OTL now reckons the server is down 'cos he can't get into his web site, so we can expect him to be grumbling for the rest of the night now!

See you all tomorrow!

Luv,

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

Just who is this Jack Frost Geezer?

Hi Woofers!

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

Cold or Wot?

We headed off towards the beach but Old Two Legs just had to stop and take a picture of the Isle of Grain from Allhallows!

........................and this is before the sun gets up!
 Down on the beach Miss May and Eric didn't hang around and they both trotted back to the car as fast as their little legs could carry them!

My paws are freezing, just who is this Jack Frost?
 Of course, OTL kept on hanging about to get a picture of the sun rising over Sheerness!


Yeah, OK, let's get a move on please!
 Eric pointed out that while us woofers were OK 'cos our legs are long but a ferret has to walk along with their underside brushing the ground!


If only you knew what is bouncing on the shells!
 Holly said that maybe he should cut down on the food 'cos that makes your tummy big!

Eric did ask if that was Holly's problem or did she inherit her backside from her dad?

Holly mumbled something about ferrets tasting like chicken but went off chasing sniffs!

Miss May was ferreting about under the grass looking for frozen slugs or snails but all she found were Weasel Sniffs! 

More Weasel sniffs!
We got back to the car and both ferrets dived into the travelling cage and under the blanket!

Back home, after a rampage around the house, they both cuddled up in their cage and drifted off for their 'Ferret Snooze' which should last about eighteen hours!

Midday I gave OTL's chair a shove to tell him I wanted to go out again. Both Fred and Wendy were half awake waiting for OTL to stop playing on the computer.

The Storage Thingy where he keeps all his files has suddenly stopped letting him in to save or down load any files.

OTL is not a happy woofer, he is to take it down to the computer shop tomorrow to see if they can get into the memory drives!

More expense!

Down on the beach it was still as cold and both Fred and Wendy demanded that they should get carried in the ferret bag but OTL said they could have a carry in his arms but no diving into the bag!

We want a carry or else!
Wendy said that it was a good job Freddy had been 'Done' or he might have trouble walking over the frost!

So, we are all looking out for this Jack Frost who has been leaving all this white stuff over the place. OTL has to scrape the stuff off the windscreen before we can drive off to the beach. You know, it was minus 1.5 this morning and they say it will be worse tonight!

Holly says that we should stay in bed tomorrow and have a wee in the garden!

We'll see!

Bye bye for now,

Luv,

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

Down to Zero Degrees Here!

Hello Woofers!

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

Well, here we are again and we have some good news!

No, we haven't won the lottery but nearly as good!

Old Two Legs has been taking May and Eric out for a walk but has had to take two travelling cages 'cos they start picking on each other. Now, with all this bed hopping and cuddling under the blanket, OTL thought he might try the old 'Two Ferrets in One Box' trick!

It worked!

There were a couple of squeaks as they settled down but no more as we headed towards the beach!

Progress or wot! 

Mind you, I suppose the cold also helped them 'cos they were both snuggled up in OTL's arms all the way down to the beach!

There were no clouds up in the sky and OTL reckons that was the reason why it was so cold! A real taste of winter to come maybe?

I reckon it's time to get back to the car!
 Young Eric was willing to have a stroll along the beach but he did point out that his bits were getting cold when he stopped for a rest on the cold sea shells!

This is definitely 'Brass Monkey Weather'!
 Eric has never seen Winter before 'cos when he was born in May Time this year it was all warm and sunny!

We have all seen cold winters and Eric already agrees that Summer is Best!

Lunch time Fred and Wendy were down the beach and they both agreed that it was better at home!

Fred said that he knew a Brass Monkey had passed this was 'cos he found two round objects in the sand!

OK, so, they maybe stones but they could easily be from a Brass Monkey!
 Wendy told him to stop messing about and to shift his tail 'cos there was a warm bed waiting in the car and it had her name written on it!

Come on, I need a warm bed!
Now I'm not sure what the temperature is going to be tonight but our weather monitoring thingy whatsit will be able to record it! Now, a nice twenty five degrees would be an ideal temperature!

Not too sure what is for dinner tonight but Holly and I have decided we will do some serious mugging 'cos we fancy a change from Doggy Scoff!

See you all tomorrow and hope you all keep warm!

Luv,

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