Happy Thursday!

Hello Woofers!

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

This morning the weather had changed, it was windy and there was a definite chilly edge to it!

The weather forecast says that we have some cold winds coming together with some snow!

That will be fun, the ferrets have never seen snow so if Old Two Legs gets back in time on Sunday and there is enough snow on the ground......................SNOWBALLS!!!!!!!

Until then we have to suffer with the cold wind that's blowing in from the sea!

It even LOOKS cold!
 Holly and I found some sniffs hidden in the bushes and being out of the wind they were wonderful!

Just get a load of this!
 Lunchtime it was better outside, still windy but the sun had come out!

Freddy decided he would pass on a walk at lunchtime and went back to sleep leaving Miss Wendy to come with us for a small rampage!

I do love a Rampage!
 Miss Wendy was able to have a rampage all of her own, normally it is Freddy who hangs back looking for a carry but today he was asleep at home and Miss Wendy took full advantage!

This is the best!
 She was diving in and out of the grass, hiding then jumping out and chasing Holly up the hill!

I sniff Nargles!
 There wasn't any Nargles but we didn't say anything 'cos she was having such a good time!

Boo!
 On the football field the mole hills seemed a little bigger and the Mole Sniff was stronger, even with the wind blowing!

I reckon this mole has moved his family in!
Back home we had some chicken waiting for us. That didn't last long and the Teeth Cleaning Chew sort of vanished in a flash!

Over the weekend The Missus has promised to try dehydrating some chicken, just like the stuff OTL gets from the Doggy Shop, with a bit of luck there will be some chicken jerky for all us woofers!

Claws crossed!

See you all tomorrow!

Luv,

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

It's someones Birthday Today!

Hi Woofers!

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

Now, while we are waiting for Old Two Legs to have his shower and wash all his bits, Holly and I study the diary to see if there are any appointments booked or visitors arriving and stuff like that.

Today, we see, is a Birthday in fact it is the Numpty Numph Birthday of Mrs Goodes, so, guess what is next?

Yesss!

OK, here we go, 5, 89, 3!

Happy Birthday to Yooo!
Raspberry donuts 'll make you poo!
Stick a ferret in your tea cup,
Happy Birthday to YOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Now can we have a bit of cake?

This morning it was still a bit misty down on the sea shore and the sun was up but hiding behind the clouds!


A bit wishy washy today!
As we walked on the light got brighter but still no colourful sunrise. However, it was bright enough for us to see the two woofers on the Sea Wall. They normally do some serious woofing at Holly and I but we don't care, we got OTL to look after us!

Wot a lot of woofing, and they are miles away!
The morning was spent snoozing on the bed while OTL was cleaning the cages and the ferrets were causing all manner of havoc in The Missus store room. Eric gathers up all his squeaky balls and hides them under the boxes while May moves tons of Brambles Biscuits to a safe place under the sofa!

We don't mind that 'cos Holly and I go hunting and eat all the biscuits as 'Snacks'!

Lunchtime the sun had poked its face above the cloud but then it ducked down again!

Eric and May came out with us and cuddled up to OTL to begin with but Miss May decided she would have a run, but then after a few minutes she was back up again then two minutes later, down she gets for another run!

Daddy, I want a carry!
 By the time we had got back to the football field, Eric was down on the ground and ferreting through the grass and investigating the mole hills!

You can throw the stick but there is no way I'm running after it!
Eric is just not into sticks like wot I am!

Mind you, I don't know what he would do if the Mole stuck it's nose above ground!

Back home for a snooze before dinner. I know we got Doggy Scoff so OTL better have something tasty tonight or else!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

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

Busy, Busy!

Hi Ho Woofers!

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

Wot a drab old day it's been. We had a look out of the window first thing to see loads of misty everywhere!

At first Old two Legs thought it was raining but then saw the mist condensing on the roof gutters and dropping down to the window ledge!

Drip, Drip, Drip!

Down on the sea front it wasn't any better, mind you, it did give us a chance at chasing some bunnies!

We thought they may have been fooled by the mist but as normal, they spotted us steaming in at mach 12 and still managed to get out of our way!

OK, where did the bunnies go?
There was no sunrise over Sheerness, in fact we had trouble seeing Sheerness!

Holly reckoned it was all to do with the low pressure passing slowly over us. She did say that there was a high pressure front heading our way and it should all brighten up this after noon.

She really is a Miss Know-It-All!

Wot Sheerness?
Well, lunch time the cold front passed over us and the wind a arrived and blow me tail skywards if the wind didn't start blowing with some force!

OTL had to take his glasses off 'cos the wind was making his eyes water!

Here comes the cold front!
Poor lad had to go out working this afternoon and missed out on the home made soup he normally has. Of course, that means he has to go hungry until dinner tonight.

Now he knows how we feel when we can't face the Doggy Scoff that gets served up!

It took him a couple of hours to get his customer sorted and arrived back to a 'Woofers Welcome'!

We are not sure what he has got for dinner tonight but we can bet some of it will be salad, with any luck it may also be Bambi Burgers, Holly and I love them, especially when they get dipped in eggy!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

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

Soggy Doggy!

Hi Woofers!

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

First of all, welcome back Mrs Goodes, good to see you are back again!

Now, we were expecting a mild warmish day today but what happened?

Yes, it rained.

It rained before we got up, we know that 'cos there is a big puddle in the road and on top of that, the rain woke us up!

Down on the sea front it was touch and go for us to continue the walk but Old Two Legs pulled his hat down over his ears and sheep herded us off along the path!

I mean, do we look like sheep?

Bah!

Well, I reckon we should have had our rain coats on!
The walk wasn't too exciting, damp, wet but little wind and not that cold!

The sun was coming up but we didn't see it, the sky was all grey mist and cloud!

We got the feeling today was going to be best spent in bed!


Not the most exciting view we have ever seen!
Lunchtime we were down the sea shore again but this time we did have our rain coats on and yes, it was still raining!

Holly spotted a rather large container ship heading down the Thames blowing its fog horn and making a lot of noise!

We saw that the containers were piled up at least four high above the deck! The wheelhouse could hardly see where it was going, so we reckon it was on 'Instruments only'!

One mighty big container ship!
Normally, when we get back to the football field, OTL gets to the car first, puts the ferrets away in their cage and then calls Holly and I.

Holly trots off and jumps up into the car but I play the pickle and sit in the middle of the field totally ignoring OTL calling me.

Then he starts walking towards me and calling my name.

I have turned my head away and was looking at the school!

I wait until he gets withing twenty feet from me and I rush past him and jump into the car laughing my tail off!

I think its a really good game and I'm sure OTL likes the game as well 'cos he never tells me off!

Today there were no ferrets, I didn't hang about, as soon as Holly was in I decided that it was a warmer, dryer place than in the middle of the field, so I joined Holly in the car and we shared the hot air blower until we dried our ears!

How to have fun in the rain!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

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

We spot some Angels!

Hi Woofers!

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

It's been a super day today, there was a frost on the wind screen this morning so we had to herrrrrrrr on the screen to melt the frost!

Down on the sea front we were sniffin' the sniffs when Holly said she could see angels in the sky!

Really it was clouds, well, that's what I reckon but Old Two Legs took a photo and you know what?

We still are not sure!

Well, it could be!
 There was a frost on the ground, not much but enough to make it slippery in some places!


Look! Wheeeeeeeeee!
 Back home Holly and I headed for the bedroom so we can watch out the window for passing cats and Two Legs.

That's always worth a good woof!

We took Freddy and Wendy with us at lunchtime and of course there were loads of TL's visiting the sea shore and walking their woofers.

OTL had to keep a close watch for any woofer that looked like it was getting too close!

Of course, all the visitors wanted to stop and go through the normal questions and there was one couple wanted to hire a couple of ferrets to go hunting bunny rabbits!

I think that our ferrets are so well looked after they would end up being chased by the bunnies!

Across the football field Eric had a sniff at the mole hill but there was no moles at home today!


Come out where ever you are!
 Miss Wendy is always up for a run but Freddy will only have a short run before wanting to be picked up, he is a lazy ferret sometimes!

OTL, it time for a lift!
Back home we had a bowl of chicken waiting for us and of course that is followed by a serious snooze in the office!

The Missus has been playing with her card stuff and has come up with a Chinese theme and try as she might, she couldn't come up with a stencil of an Earth Dog!

We think she has put it up on her Faceache Thingy!

We are off now to watch the Olympics on the TV.

Bye bye for now!

Luv,

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

Misty Morning on The Marsh!

Hi Woofers!

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

Well, here we are again with our new titles. Earth Dogs!

First thing this morning it was rather wet and damp and Holly suggested we could change the title to Water Dogs!

On our way over to the beach we stopped to look at the mist over the marshes.

First shot is of the container port with the big cranes and the gas powered power station.

No sunrise but misty!
 Then we turned around and looked back towards our kennel and there was mist across the reed beds!

All sort of Ethereal!
 Back home we found that The Missus had gone off to her Crop, taking at least a couple of tons of glitter and a few gallons of glue.

She was going to have a good day!

Holly and I got brushed and had the hair around our eyes trimmed a little. We also got our legs and paws trimmed as well. Old Two Legs has decided not to give us our hair cut yet 'cos it is still cold first thing and as long as we get a regular brush we should be OK until March before we get the bath and haircut!

Lunchtime we took Eric and May with us down to the seaside. Eric was talking about this year of the dog stuff and asked if there was a Year of the Ferret?

Holly, being very knowing about these things announced that there were twelve animals, Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog and Pig!

So, we reckon that as OTL sometimes calls the ferrets 'Little Rats' the nearest to a ferret is a rat.

Eric was not happy about that and said he would rather be a Dragon!

Holly also said that OTL was born in the Year of the Dog and what is better, he is a Fire Dog!

That explains his Woofer appeal!

Miss May says that as they don't have a year of the Ferret, then it is all a load of rubbish!

Just at that moment we spotted a container ship going down the Thames.

Shouldn't that be Yang & Ying?
We got back to the football field and saw that they were setting up for a game, so the ferrets kept off the pitch and instead went hunting moles!

Wot about the year of the Mole?
Last night we had a Chinese Takeaway and both Holly and I managed to mug OTL for some of his King Plawns and some of the Plawn Clackers!

It was great!

TM sad it made a change from cooking dinner but OTL did point out that he has been surviving on a diet of salad and cold meat and there was no cooking there!

The things he does just to loose a few kilos!

I'm not sure what we got tonight but whatever it is it will contain salad and cold meat!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

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

新年快乐! It's the year of The Dog!

Hello Woofers!

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

Now, paws up, who knew it was the Chinese New Year today?

OK, keep your paw up if you knew it was the Year of The Dog?

Lastly, keep your paws up if you knew it is also the Earth Year?

Yes, the last one got you!

Now, if you are really clever, or Chinese, you would know that  新年快乐!

Is Happy New Year!

Yes it's the Year of The Earth Dog and Holly reckons that is us to 'cos we just love digging in mole holes!

First thing this morning it was a bit chilly but the sky was clear and the sun was throwing up some interesting colours!

The Morning of The Year of The Dog!
 Now, I know I'm going on a bit about this Year of The Dog but it is starting off with some good weather and if our luck holds, we will get a Chinese tonight with Plawn Clackers and King Plawns!

Lunchtime was great, the sun came out and Freddy & Wendy had a walk along the top path and across the football field. Old Two Legs had to  pick them both up when a dopey woofer came rushing over but Holly and I soon saw him off with some well chosen 'Woof Off's'!

Spring is certainly here !
 We spotted some sea gulls doing a flight dance out across the mud flats and that is another sign that Spring is here!

Next we will see some flowers on the bushes in the garden!


OK, we have woofed off the Bozo, so do we get our Plawn Clackers tonight?
 Freddy enjoyed his run across the football field even if Wendy was trying to drag him in a different direction!

See you all tomorrow.

Luv,

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

Serious Spring Weather!

Hi Woofers!

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

Well, wot a wonderful day today!

There we were, enjoying a morning walk, when through the clouds we spotted some blue sky!

Look! Blue sky!
 As we were a little later than normal, we ended up meeting a few of the lads.

We came across Bert, he just loves Holly, he came running up and said 'Be My Valentine'!

Then he planted a kiss on Holly's nose!

No Tongues!
 OTL was disappointed that he missed the red sunrise but by selectively sampling the sky he produced this photo which believe it or not is just as it came out of the camera!

A burst of morning sunshine!
 We found the trench again and Holly says she in convinced that it shows where a trench was dug and then filled in again!

Holly's Trench.
 Lunchtime the sun had really come out and there was blue sky's everywhere, both Miss May and Eric had a walk and a ferret about in the grass.

May even had a roll around and was kicking her paws into the air!


Someone get this branch off my harness!
When we got to the football field both of the ferrets decided to have a run through the mole hills and then raced off across the field!

Come on, let's do another lap!
They both were jumping over each other and young Eric was even dooking his tail off with joy!

OTL says that the good weather should last for a few days so we are all looking forward to some more racing around!

Old Two Legs gave us a little nibble of his Bambi Burger last night and he even gave us a piece of his pancake!

With a bit of luck we will be up and out early tomorrow and catch another sunrise!

See you all tomorrow!

Luv,

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

A Bit Chilly Today!

Hi Woofers!

Guess who? Yes, it's Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret!

Well, Spring has been put back a little, this morning we were out along the sea side and the wind was blowing, in fact the wind made it colder and it was a case of a fast wee and back to the car!

Drab, Grey and rather cold!
 As it was still dark, so Old Two Legs was playing with the flash again! I mean, how would you like someone waving a camera around and flashing the light just when you started to have a wee!


I'm going to wee over that camera, I am!
 We were hoping that we could see the sunrise but instead of a sky full of colours all we got was a dull glow below the horizon!


Not the brightest sunrise we have seen!
 Back home we had a snooze while OTL did his chores and pretty soon it was lunchtime. The ferrets had all their time rampaging around the house  and having a great time chasing The Missus. Little Wendy had a super time pinching TM's socks and hiding them under the sofa!

Eric has learnt how to get on OTL's good side, he climbs up onto the desk, snuggles up to OTL, gives OTL's nose a lick and then runs over to the bottle of Ferretone waiting for OTL to squirt a cap full for him!

Sneaky Eric de Ferret!

Come lunchtime we woke Freddy and Wendy and suggested they come out for a walk with us.

Freddy wasn't too keen on the idea but in the end he relented and off we went.

Down on the sea front it was FREEZING!

The wind was blowing harder and the temperature had dropped and Freddy wouldn't walk!

Miss Wendy had a scamper along the muddy path and kept on getting back up for a cuddle!

When we got to the football field the wind had dropped , so, Freddy said he would have a little walk.

It's still windy and my tummy is cold!
Holly and I were sniffing at the mole hills but there was no sign of the mole today, we reckon he was hiding deep down in his hiddy hole!

Here Moley Moley!
Back home TM had forgotten all about promising OTL some pancakes and on top of that she had run out of salad!

Poor OTL had to eat chips with his Bambi Burger!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

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

Is it Pancake Day?

Yo Woofers!

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

This morning we all were sleepy heads, well, Holly, The Missus and I but Old Two Legs was up at the normal time. He's got a thing about trying to catch a good sunrise but the last few mornings have been a washout as far as he is concerned!

I don't think that today's sunrise was any better, except that there were a few clouds to break up the sky!

It doesn't exactly go 'Pow!'
We have noticed that it is getting brighter, earlier, nowadays. I can see OTL getting up with TM just so he can catch the sunrise.

Does the summer sun get up at three thirty?

We enjoyed a walk along the Sea Wall and Holly pointed out that there was still some frost on the sand!

Look! Frost! I wish I could go down for a roll on the beach!
Lunchtime we had full tummies 'cos we managed to get TM to cook us some chicken and today we actually got it served up all warm and greasy!

Lovely!

We didn't mind going out in the rain but we did leave the ferrets sleeping 'cos they don't do wet grass or rain!

Damp, Cold and a Strong Wind!
One thing we did see was the depression in the mud. Holly says it could be a trench where there was a pipe heading out to sea.

She maybe right, she normally is where earthworks are concerned!

Holly's Mud Works!
Now, we reckon that today is Pancake Day and if OTL gets lucky he may get a couple of pancakes full of sugar or honey with a squirt of lemon, just how we like it!

We'll let you know what happens!

Bye for now!

Luv,

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