We Wish To Register A Complaint!

Hi Woofers!

Damp Daisy & Dripping Holly!

It's Wet Again!

I don't know what has gone wrong with the weather, but let's face it, IT'S MAY!

We should be having sunshine and balmy breezes, warm evenings and bright fresh mornings!

What have we got?

 Cold Paws, Wet Tails, Soggy Bellies, Damp Noses!

Holly and me are going to complain to the weather men and get them to send us some sun shine!

Even the Kestrel was complaining about the rain, seems that it washes away the tell tale tracks the voles leave as they run along their little ally ways.

It's The Kestrel Again!
Old Two Legs couldn't get in front of the Kestrel, so he had to sneak up behind him!

OTL can be sneaky like that sometimes!

Back home we got a good towel down and a super brush before diving off to our Day Bed for a snooze before lunch!

OTL decided that come Rain or Shine he was going to get down The Forest again, he wanted to go to Canterbury Marshes but it would have been too 'Quaggy' underfoot and he would have been spending all his time slipping over in the mud!

So, after lunch, we got our rain coats and a fresh towel and headed off to The Forest.

First thing OTL did was to start taking pictures of the woodland flowers, boring or wot!

Woodland Flowers, Again!
 He just can't think of anything original!

Holly and I went off chasing Squirrels, far more interesting and a bit more exercise!

I See One!
All of a sudden, OTL went into 'Stalking Mode' and proceeded to creep along, hiding behind trees and under branches, keeping his camera up to his face. (Well it hides the bald head and white cheeks!)

Then, crouching down, he sneaked alongside some bushes and hid behind a tree trunk.

Then he pointed his camera up to the top of a very big tree and..........took a picture of a Cuckoo!

Cuckoo in the tree top!
Not the best shot we have ever seen but good enough for proof of sighting!

While OTL was looking for more birds, Holly and I spotted someone walking towards us.

There, in the middle of the path, looking all mean and hungry, stood three Rottweilers!

I mean, they were big, like ENORMOUS!

Scary Or Wot!

OTL hurried us on towards the car and away from them, they looked too hungry for my liking!

Back home for a good rub down to get rid of the mud and a cuddle with OTL while mugging some of his Shortbread!

The best bit is that tomorrow is a Bank Holiday, so claws crossed, the weather may be better and we could get down to the Marshes!

Bye bye for now, see you tomorrow.

A Wet Saturday, Just For A Change!

Hello Woofers!

Daisy & Holly back again!

What a day today! It started off being wet, then it got colder, then it got wetter and colder!

A typical English Summer!

We went for a walk along The Sea Wall this morning and where the workmen moved the beach shingle, they left a dip between the shingle and the Sea Wall. Well the tide was so high and the wind so strong that it blew the water right over the top and made a big puddle!

Having a Paddle!
Holly and I just had to have a paddle in that, just for fun!

Next Stop Hamburg?

We watched a container ship heading out to sea after unloading and loading up again at the Thames Port Port. Sometimes they get big container ships in there!

Old Two Legs got all interested in taking pictures of the sea crashing against the shore and splashing up in the air!

Another Splash
And Another One!
Holly and me did some chasing of rabbits but by the time we got down to the bushes, they had gone down their Rabbit Holes!

OTL says that one day we will catch one and then be so surprised we won't know what to do with it.

Holly says that there are only two things you can do with a rabbit,  Roast or Boiled!

Still it's fun trying to catch them!

We spent most of the afternoon in the caravan, well, we were supposed to be away in it this weekend but the site was too wet so we couldn't go.

What we did do was to help OTL with some 'Tarting Up' of the inside and general maintenance. He spent some time fiddling with the satellite television system, mumbling and grumbling when it didn't do what he wanted it to do!

In the end he sorted it out and declared that it was now 'Working as it should'!

This evening was spent watching the Harry Potter movies and falling asleep cuddled up to OTL.

In fact a very relaxing evening!

See you tomorrow.
