Big Flea's Have Little Flea's Upon Their Backs To Bite 'em!

Hello Woofers!

Us again, Daisy, Holly, Snowflake and Mr Brambles.

We played our joke on Old Two Legs again this morning, but he didn't get a chance to start paddling before Holly went crashing through the office door again and jumped up onto his lap and gave him a lick on the nose!

Then I rushed in and jumped onto his lap as well and he nearly fell of the Rowing Machine!

We decided to leave him alone to get his exercise and headed down to see what The Missus was doing!

It wasn't raining when we went down the Sea Wall, however, it was a bit chilly but at least the rain held off!

Snowflake was doing her, 'Can we go home yet?'

Come on, let's go home, I'm cold!
She got all interested when she found what she called a 'Surf Board'!

I thought it was just a big plank but she said that if we had some waves we could ride them!

Look Girls! A Surf Board!
 I pointed out that the waves were miles away 'cos the tide was right out but she said we should dig a big hole and bury it so we could play with it when we are next down there.

OK, I thought, I'll help her out by digging a hole but when I saw the size of the board I suggested we hire a JCB!
Here's a Hole for you!
 Back home there was Chicken waiting for us and OTL was off down to the town while we enjoyed our breakfast!

Lunch time it was Yuk! Drizzly Rain and big puddles and wet paws!

Next time I'm bringing my Wellies!
Back home OTL went back to playing with the camera and found another dead moth on the window ledge. So, off he went trying different things like turning the lens around on the camera!

This moth was held in place by a splodge of Heat Sink Compound which is an electrical thingy wotsit OTL uses sometimes.

Mortified but fresher!
 As he was playing about he noticed a little bug crawling out from under the moths wing. It moved like an inch worm and disappeared under the wing again. So, with the aid of a pair of tweezers, he lifted up the wings and searched for the bug but couldn't find it. What he did spot was an egg! So it looks like the bug laid an egg on the dead moth!

OTL told us of a bit of a poem he knows.

Big fleas have little fleas,
Upon their backs to bite 'em,
And little fleas have lesser fleas,
and so, ad infinitm.

Can you see it?
Next experiment is to have the camera with a lens on it as normal but then mount another lens on the front, in reverse!

Now that should be fun!

OTL reckons we could then see the hairs on a Gnats Backside!

What ever turns you on!

We're off to do some mugging now, so bye bye for now and see you tomorrow!


Daisy, Holly, Snowflake and Mr Brambles.


  1. Interesting day. It is a tat damp and chilly today, you're very brave going out in it. Archie has been out a couple of times but not enjoyed it. I like the look of Snowflakes surf board. I bet Mr Brambles would have loved to have seen it. I love the pictures of you girls but I have to say I had a bit of a chill when I saw OTL's insects and egg ........... uuuurrrggggghhhhhh. Not sure a gnats bum is very appealing. But the rhythm is good. Glad you got a good brekkie and hope the muggings are good tonight. Have fun :) xxx

  2. Hello girls and Mr B ... great pics of you girls, but I don't think Snowflake is enjoying her walks without Mr B still hopefully it won't be too long before he's out and about again, can you imagine he is going to go Beeeeeeeeeeeeserk when he gets down to the beach and starts sniffin and digging again. I've got to say that moth does look very mortified and the egg picture made me itch all over ...and I don't want to see a gnats backside please no . Time for bed xx Jasper and a very sleepy TM x
