We've got Lodgers!

Hello Woofers!

We are here again, Daisy, Holly & Snowflake!

What a rotten day, it has been raining on and off for most of today and why does it always start to rain the moment we put out noses out of the door!

Still, we had our coats on so it wasn't so bad, just a little damp!

This morning we had a walk around The Farm 'cos OTL was busy and had to go out early. That also means that The Missus didn't take her camera out with her, so that means no photos!

We reckon that she doesn't take the camera out 'cos Old Two Legs set it up for taking pictures of her cards and now she is too scared to play with any of the controls!

OTL being out means that life in the house hold is a bit, 'Boring', so, to help pass the time and also making a change from snoozing, which is not so bad but sometimes you can have too much of a good thing, know what I mean?

Well, there I was, sitting in OTL's office, flicking through the TV channels when I came across the section that shows all the other stuff he has connected to the TV, like, Computer and AV1 and AV2 and HMDI2.

One of these showed the inside of the bird box we have got, just outside the window.

I was just about to change channel again when this Sparrow appeared on the screen with some bits of grass in is beak and he proceeded to build a nest!

I was facinated and so was Snowflake, who was watching from Snowy Heights! Hey Up! Says Snowflake, does Sparrow taste like chicken? ('cos she likes raw chicken legs) 'No idea' says I thinking the same thing!

So, out comes OTL's camera and we try to capture a shot!

New Lodger!
When we told OTL about it he said that the last sparrows who nested there we a messy pair and kept covering up the lens with bits of grass 'cos the didn't like OTL and TM watching them hatch out the eggs!

The male sparrow seems to be in the nest all the time, pushing and poking the grass and trying to make it all soft and warm.

So we will be keeping a close eye on what happens and already Snowflake is researching on the internet to find out if you can make a decent omelet out of sparrows eggs, but I don't think OTL will allow that!

See you tomorrow!


Daisy, Holly & Snowflake


  1. That sounds about right, the male staying inside in the warm .......... interesting stuff though, hope you manage to be in front of the screen when the eggs start hatching ....... tell Snowflake, they probably do taste like chicken ....... I bet you could make an omelette but I think it would be a bit small, not enough for you 3 to share :( xxx

  2. Glad to see you being educated but I don't think you had better play with the controls too much. I have been away to somewhere that had rabbits everywhere but no internet, Mike managed to see odds and ends but I must go back and visit what I have missed. Sparrow omelette, I must agree with Lazy Sunday, not enough for a ferret let alone two strapping great puppies (one strapping great puppy and one great puppy). See you tomorrow hope it is dry and we get some OTL pictures. xxx

  3. Hi Girls,
    don't touch those controls otherwise OTL wont be happy. Hope the weather bucks up for you tomorrow and OTL can take some snaps of you in your glory. XXX
