Who nicked Spring!

Hi Woofers,

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

Wot a change from yesterday! I mean, there it was all sunshine and balmy breezes and then today, what did we get?

Grey clouds!

Not exactly the brightest day this week!
Mind you, I did make up for it. I found this super pile of stink on the sand and just dived in!

Oh Woofin' Heck! Is she in trouble!
And I was, I got a full wash and scrub and on top of that my harness had to be washed as well!

Mind you, Freddy did a roll but missed out on the poo!

I must say, it does have a sort of buzz to it!
As we got closer to the car, Wendy and Freddy ran onto the 'Ferret Path'. It's funny how all of the ferrets use the same path through grass!

Come on, shift your tail!
Lunchtime it was May and Eric's turn to have a run on the beach and Miss May said she couldn't find any poo to roll in and she felt she was missing out!

Old Two Legs told her she  would only get a scrubbing in a bowl of soap suds!

Oh No! Not the Soap Suds!
Eric had a great time digging a trench down the beach and kept on looking around to see if anyone was watching his 'Engineering'!

McAlpine has nothing on me!
Holly and I had some fun doing a 'Fast Dig' while the ferrets watched and hopefully pick up some ideas on hole digging!

OK, second gear!
 Holly got going and in the end there was sand being thrown all over the place and even the ferrets got covered!

Eric ran off and May asked OTL to pick her up, just to get out of the sand shower!

Quick OTL, save me from the Sand Storm!
Back home we left OTL to finish off his messing about on the computer while we all headed for our 'Snoozing Beds'!

See you all tomorrow when we should look like a couple of poodles 'cos it's our 'Shampoo and Set day!

Now, today is also Auntie Sue's birthday!

We have been working on a new 'Birthday Song' so, take a deep breath and here goes!

Happy Birthday to Sooo!
Loads of sniffs and a poooo!
Happy Birthday Missy Soosey............
Happy Birthday to Yooooooooooooooo!

Luv,

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

It feels like Spring today!

Hi Woofers!

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

Wot a wonderful day it's been today!

If we ignore the fact that both Holly and I have got a 'Grumbly Tum' for something we have both eaten, today has been super!

We got down onto the beach with Wendy and Freddy and had a great time on the sand.

Both ferrets we running around digging holes while Holly and I tormented Old Two Legs by rolling on the sand and ignoring his instructions to 'Get Up'! 

Any closer and your tail is Mine!
Looking out over the river Medway was great 'cos the sun was shining and the sky was almost clear of clouds!

A real Spring Day!
Holly Chops just couldn't stop herself, sore butt or no!

Holly getting sandy!
When we got back with May and Eric, the sun was still shining down onto the beach. Eric and May were digging trenches while I got going with a couple of holes!

Everyone was rolling on the sand as well!

Of course I joined in but instead of rolling around, I went for a bit of 'Dig and Whizz' all up and down the beach and just for fun I was pushing the sand back into the ferrets trenches!

Sand? Me? No! Not Me!
Then we decided to have a contest, The Best Sand Hole' with OTL deciding on the winner!

After much deliberation he said that Miss May had the most impressive hole especially as she was a ferret with short legs!

Oi! My hole is the best!
Both Holly and I though that OTL had been 'got at' 'cos we saw May sitting on his shoulder and giving his ear a lick!

Back home OTL spent a couple of hours installing four new bird nesting boxes and he also took down two that had got past their best!

So, now there are three sparrow boxes on the shed while the one for Blue Tits has been moved to the branch of the tree in the garden.

We still have the bird box with a camera in it but being it is for sparrows, we expect they will load it up with grass and stuff and block the camera lens as they did last year!

Now, we have also seen Ratty raiding the seed fallen from the bird feeder. He or she, is still on their own so OTL has been hunting out the Rat Trap that spent the winter behind the shed!

Now we have been here before and Ratty has been too sneaky in the past and ignored the tempting food pile on the trigger plate!

Still, if we don't trap Ratty, OTL will get the camera out to get him on film!

Now this morning I was reading Izzy's comments and went all shivery and cold remembering when I had the chip dug into my shoulder! It was horrible and only made me very afraid of the vet! Still, it doesn't hurt any more but at the time...........Ouch!

So, that's it for today, The Missus is getting her stuff ready for her trip to the U.S.A. and OTL has had the first delivery of frozen meals on plastic plates!

He'll do anything to get out of the washing up!

See you all tomorrow!

Luv,


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

He's Back!

Hi Woofers!

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

We just loved the extra room there is on the bed last night! As much as we love Old Two Legs, there is something to be said for stretching out your front and back paws and not touching anyone else!

We got news that OTL was packing up and then heading to the breakfast bar to get his 'Rabbit Food' before setting off for home.

Holly and I had heard OTL complaining about the vast number of 'Mini Two Legs' there were in the hotel and this morning there were a load of them all dressed up in pointed hats and dressed in Hogwarts school gowns!

They were all off to the 'Harry Potter Experience'!

OTL has been there and says it is 'Really Cool'!

After the morning walk we headed up to the bedroom window where we spent hours looking out of the window waiting for the Big Car to arrive back.

Then, a bit later than expected, there it was driving down the road.

Well, Holly and I went just a teeny weeny bit potty!

After OTL had unpacked all his stuff we settled down for a chat and a little cuddle before dinner!


Daddy's Home!
So, a little snooze and now we are off to see what we can pinch!

See you all tomorrow!

The bed is going to get crowded again tonight!

Luv,

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

We meet the Ladies that Craft!

Yo Woofers!

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

Now, you know that Old Two Legs has left us for the weekend, so, that means we have to fit in with The Missuses plans which include spending hours up at the village hall 'Crafting'!

Well, Holly and I did the expected thing of saying 'Hello' to everyone and seeing if we could snaffle any food that may be left unguarded!

We both got nibbles!

The ferrets got a run around at home while TM was cleaning the cages. Crafty TM shut the ferrets out of the office while she cleaned the poo out and prevented Miss May from doing a 'Ferret Boo'!

When Freddy and Wendy were out, Wendy got lost behind the filing cabinet and had Old Two Legs not warned TM about the hiding place, young Wendy might still be there!

OTL is having fun and we believe he has got a couple of books to read over the next few weeks.

I'm not too sure on what has upset me but I've got a 'Grumbly Tum', Holly reckons it is the chew I have kept hidden in the office for the last two weeks, just 'cos it has some green furry stuff on it!

I think it is because I'm missing OTL, still, I've got one of his coats to sleep on so I still can pretend he is here with me giving me a cuddle while I snooze!

With a bit of luck he should be home tomorrow so I will have the 'Real OTL Sniff' to cuddle up to!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

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

He's Gone!

Hi Woofers!

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

Well, today's blog is going to be shorter than normal and on top of that, there are no pictures!

We were out early this morning, but not early enough to catch the sun rise, so no 'Ethereal Sunrise' pictures!

In fact there were no pictures at all 'cos as soon as we got to the beach there were loads of the gang sniffing around and Two Legs talking to Old Two Legs!

We took May and Eric out in the morning 'cos Freddy and Wendy, after their morning slurp of Lactose Free milk and a chew of Chicken Strip they headed back to bed for a snooze and OTL said it was terrible to wake them up to go for a walk!

So, instead we took Eric and Wendy!

Wendy was all up for a rampage around the beach and the Grass Path but Eric was a little slow and at one point he even got OTL to carry him!

Back home it was all rush and tear to get the cages cleaned and food bowls filled before OTL had to leave.

We were excited thinking that we were going too but got all sad when OTL waved 'Bye Bye' and left us with The Missus!

Both Holly and I sat by the window for a while thinking OTL might change his mind and come back but he has been gone so long that I think he is well on his way up the M1 motorway!

We are looking forward to seeing what TM does with the ferret cages tomorrow and what the ferrets get up to when they have their rampage around the house with TM to keep them in line!

Some hope!

Now trying to decide which two babies to give away must be terrible but as long as you make sure the TL's that come to take them away are properly vetted, sniffed and looked at make sure they play with the puppy before you let them out of your sight!

Oh! and another thing, make sure you get reports and pictures of their progress!

We all had to leave Mum but as long as we get loved it is OK!

Let's face it, we did alright!

We will have a chat with OTL tonight and make sure he is missing us!

So, see you all tomorrow!

Luv,

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

Nothing like a good Exfoliate!

Hello Woofers!

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

Wot a super day today. The sun has been shining all day and the wind has been gentle as well!

We spotted a Wormy Man out on the mud, digging for all he was worth! Old Two Legs took a photo then started singing the Twelve Days of Christmas, but our version!

I can't remember all of the words but it ended up with.....................

.......Two Scruffy Dogs and a Very Merry Muddy Wooormy Man!
Wendy and Freddy didn't join in the song 'cos they were trying to beat me up to the grass path, but I got ahead of them 'cos I have longer legs and can run faster that they can!

Hey Ferrets! Kiss the Tail!
Freddy said that he would bite 'The Tail' if he could get any closer, but he's got to catch me first!

OTL was busy this morning getting everything cleared up and finished 'cos he is away this weekend with his cousin Alun.

We reckon it is going to be wot The Missus calls a 'Boozy Weekend'!

Lunchtime it was still all sun shine and balmy breezes, there were the normal quota of Mini Two Legs enjoying their 'Half Term Holiday'

May and Eric had fun on the sand, digging and sniffing all over the place!


Can you see it? I can still feel the sand in my tail!
 May had the answer to Eric's sand problem, she dived onto the Sea Kale and had a good 'Exfoliate'
on the leaves!

Come on Eric, this is the way!
Holly and I spent the afternoon snoozing in the office while OTL was working. As he is off tomorrow we didn't want him to forget just how cuddly we are!

Mind you, when OTL is away we might be able to get a bit more of the bed, providing that TM doesn't kick us off the bed!

It will be fun watching TM when she cleans out the ferret cages 'cos all the ferrets just love sneaking up on OTL to give him a 'Ferret Boo!'

That normally ends up with OTL banging his head on the cage roof!

We'll let you know what happens!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

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

Sun Shine for a change!

Hi Woofers!

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

Well, what a change we have had today. The sun was up early this morning and the temperature has been above ten degrees all day!

Getting warmer every day!
Fred and Wendy had a great time running around  on the beach but had a better time chasing Holly and I along the grass path!

Lunchtime we were back again with May and Eric. Holly and I showed them how to enjoy a roll on the beach!

Yer work it in under the harness!
 Holly was showing off he 'Nose Dive and Ear Rub' but both ferrets decided it was just too 'Doggy' for them!

Then yer rub it in!
 May and Eric had a great time sniffing all the sniffs along the grass path and running through the 'Ferret Track' that they and Wendy and Freddy have been making over the months!

Having small legs means that the ferrets have to run twice as fast as us woofers so that means they get a bit thirsty by the time we got back to the car.

Holly and I get left behind to sniff around the picnic tables while the ferrets enjoy a cooling drink before getting back into their travelling cage for a cuddle and a snooze before we get home.

It's her making the slurping noise, honest!
 Now we have had some news via FaceAche thingy that Michael had a successful operation on his nose and is now back home again being looked after by Sue!

Now, we have to report some disturbing news, poor Archie Babe had to have a wash and hair cut!

That must be terrible for such a fine lad, especially when the wind gets under your tail and you have no bushy hair to stop your butt from freezing!

Mind you, Holly and I have got that indignity booked in for next Wednesday, just how will we survive!

See you all tomorrow!

Luv,

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

It's getting warmer!

Hi Woofers!

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

Have you noticed that the temperature is creeping up? Well, the other day it was freezing, 1 degree and a nasty North West Wind!

Today it got up to eleven degrees here in North Kent and the wind was just a gentle breeze of two miles an hour!

Balmy or wot!

When we got down to the beach Old Two Legs pointed out a 'Front' that was passing over head!

A Warm Front?
 Freddy and Wendy had fun rolling in the Sea Kale leaves, until OTL told them to 'Hurry Up' 'cos he could see some woofers walking towards us along the Sea Wall!


Rush, Rush, Rush!
 We couldn't hand about 'cos The Missus had booked the car to go shopping for some last minute stuff for her American Adventure!

Come lunchtime she still hadn't returned so we had to go walkies in the Big Car! The heated seats were turned on and Holly and I had nice warm tails by the time we got down to the end of the road!

Holly got into a 'Hole Dogging' mood and was throwing the sand all over the place!

Here we go!
 I think it must be half term 'cos there were loads of Mini Two Legs wandering about with Parents or Grand Parents and of course, there was the usual questions, Wot are They? Do They Bite? Can I have One?

Miss May had fun rolling in a shallow hole she had dug, Eric was more interested in sniffin' the sea weed!

This is Soooooooo Goooood!
This afternoon we have been making up luggage labels for The Missus to hang on her suitcase. They had to have 'Reversable' labels so that on the way out it will have the U.S.A. address and on the way back it will show our home address!

Clever or wot?

We haven't heard anything about Michael and his operation, maybe Sue will give us an update if she reads today's ramblings!

See you all tomorrow!

Luv,

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

and today it's an Easterly Wind!

Hi Woofers!

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

We were up on time today, well, just after six when Old Two Legs rolled out of bed! By the time we got down onto the beach the sun was up and the wind was blowing!

Today the wind had swung around to the East and that means the wind comes in straight off the North Sea!

As Holly says, the wind has a 'Bite' to it!

I found a ball that had a puncture and OTL kicked it for me to chase. I showed it to Holly and invited her to play a game of 'Catch'. That is where she throws it up in the air and I run up and catch it in mid air!

Come on, have a game with me!
Holly said that she wasn't in the mood and not even when I said I was going to bury the ball!

I'll hide it here until tomorrow!
That was OK but Fred and Wendy decided that they would dig it up!

Don't worry, we'll find it for you!
It's OK playing on the beach but the wind was rattling off the sea and the waves were wearing their white hats!

White Hats? Nah! White Horses!

As we came off the beach, Holly and I spotted a load of Two Leg walking their woofers, all visitors, so we decided that we would give them the 'Woof Off' woof that us locals give when we see strangers.

I started off, standing as high as I could, I gave them a fine rendition of 'Woof Orf'!

Now just 'Woof Off'!
 Holly joined in the 'Woof Off' chorus and even got to stand on her back legs!

For just a couple of seconds!

....................................an' yer can stay 'Woofed Off'!
That was all OK but along came a big Dopey Bozo of a woofer who looked like a small horse! Holly and I got behind OTL and waited for him to tell the Bozo to 'Woof Off'!

OTL had to pick up the ferrets, tuck them under one arm and with the other arm he held up his had in front of the Bozos face and said in a firm voice .....'No!'

Then he said 'Back!' and pointed back towards the TL's, would you believe it? The Bozo walked backwards and then wandered off to his TL's who were waiting down the path a bit!

Brave OTL!

One last look at the sea showed even more white stuff on the sea, it was going to be good when we got back to the car, no wind and a warm heater!

More White Stuff!
The ferrets all enjoyed the walk today and young Eric even ran all the way back to the car!

See you all tomorrow!

Luv,

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

Stormy Weather!

Hello Woofers!

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

No snow today, just wind and a chill!

We caught Freddy having a wee on the beach! He said that it was OK while he was in the warm cage but as soon as that wind blew up is tail he then really needed a wee!

I know what he means!

A Ferrets gotta go when a Ferret's gotta Go!
He was below the high tide mark so it didn't matter, the sea would be in soon to wash it all away!

The wind was coming from the North East and when it does, that normally means cold!

Holly was saying that it will get colder when the tide comes in and maybe we would even get some snow!

I'm sure I can sniff snow on the wind!
 Lunchtime we brought May and Eric down to the beach. The tide was almost right in and the wind was stronger than this morning.

We certainly knew it was a stronger wind and it was still coming from the North East!

But, no snow!

There were no new sniffs on the beach and Freddy's wee had been washed away!

I don't know who that is but it's not a 'Freddy'!
I sat down on the sand to watch the waves crashing onto the beach, it was then that I decided that I wouldn't go in for a swim, I'll wait for Summer!

Not only is it wet, but it looks woffin' cold!
 Holly agreed and was soon heading back towards the car!

I know where there is a warm car heater and I'm off to find it!
One of the good things about the cold weather is that the ferrets don't hang about!

Miss May was straining at the lead like a Husky pulling a sledge! Eric was running as fast as his little legs could go and he only asked Old Two Legs a couple of times for a lift.

As soon as we reached the bench on the hill, Eric was off like a Ferret on Fire! He shoved Holly out of the way and was almost dragging May along as well!

Back home we all snuggled down for a snooze in OTL's office where we keep our 'Day Bed', it's a super thing to do on a Sunday!

See you all tomorrow!

Luv,

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