Boxing Day Excitement!

Hello Woofers!

We're back again, Daisy, Holly, Snowflake and Mr Brambles.

After yesterdays fun and games we are looking for a 'Restful Day' today, well that was the plan but it didn't seem to work out that way!

We all over slept and includes The Missus and the ferrets!

We didn't get out until about nine which to us is really the middle of the day! Old Two Legs is breathing a bit better, still snoring all night long but I think it had something to do with the 'Medicinal' slurp of whisky he had last night!

On our run along the Sea Wall we met up with a right wimpy Bozo of a sheepdog. Holly and I each gave a 'Good Morning' woof and he ran away! All the way back to his owner! I mean, he was a big dog and let's face it, we're not really scary doggies!

Of course, the ferrets were seriously impressed with us and kept  calling us their 'Minders'!

Down on the beach Snowflake was slow in getting going and OTL had to pick her up and carry her to the Rock Climbing Wall. You know, even when Mr Brambles gave her a cuddle she still didn't want to get going!

Come on Snowflake, back to the car!
 On the way across the Rock Climbing Wall we all heard a dog woofing in the distance and Miss Snowflake got a bit worried and called out asking if we were close and could we stop that dog woofing!

I hear Woofing!
 Now I know we are dogs but to stop another dog barking, well, that's not so easy 'cos once you start woofing it sort of makes you woof even more!

OK, Woofin' Stop, Your Scaring My Mate!
 So, just to reassure Snowflake, I did my 'Be Quiet' woof and you know what? It Worked! The dog stopped woofing!

Actually, I don't think it was me that stopped the woofing, I think the dog got bored and stopped on it's own!

Never mind, Snowflake was impressed and Mr Brambles said that it was a good job I had words with the dog 'cos he was about to go 'Dog Hunting' and stop the woofing himself!

I said No Woofing!
Miss Snowflake took a little while before she was ready to get going again and spent some time hiding in a tuft of grass she found on the Sea Wall!

Bet you can't see me!
 Soon we were off again and back home looking for our breakfast!

Holly was on the sofa having a snooze when she saw movement down the side of the shed. It took just a millisecond to register what it was and break into the 'Woofers War Cry'!

Holly had spotted a rat eating some of the seed the birds had dropped from their feeder.

TM opened the door and Holly flew down the garden and behind the shed! By then the rat had gone under the shed and Holly was going potty but the shed in mounted on a concrete base and therefore Holly nor the rat could dig any holes to get to the rat or away from Holly!

Having worked out what all the noise was about, OTL went up onto the computer and ordered up a Rat Trap!

The Rat Trap is on its way!

It should arrive before the New Year so we should be 'Rat Free' before long. I just hope that we don't have to give any of our dinner to be used as bait in the trap!

Miss Snowflake has been enjoying her hammock and Mr Brambles has been up on it but is not too sure about sleeping up there, he says he prefers a warm blanket and a big soft cushion!

A Soft Cushion and a Warm Cuddly Blanket is Heaven!
Lunchtime we went out and met up with some of the lads and there was a new lad there called Sid who is a Chinese Hairless Tufted something or other! All he could say was 'Cold Innit?'

If I looked like that I'd be cold as well!
The other lads were well covered and we had a run around until OTL headed off to the car!

See you soon lads!
Back home it was a snoozy afternoon watching television and playing 'Eye Spy' but everyone of Holly's were to do with food!

Some things never change!

See you tomorrow!


Daisy, Holly, Snowflake and Mr Brambles


  1. Wow, Archie and I are seriously impressed with your minding skills. Now, are you sure it's a rat and not another ferret looking for a luxury home? Archie says, word on the twilight howl is that all four legged furries are looking for a place in Godwin Mansions. Mind if it is a rat, you could donate some doggie scoff to catch it and what is OTL going to do with it when he catches it? I hope he's not considering letting it move in! Archie would like to move into Godwin Mansion but says OTL might not like his cardboard chewing tricks because of Snowflake and Mr Brambles adventure playground. Loved yesterdays and todays pictures. Archie is seriously worried about you two being tarts with the local lads, he says you're his pin up girls! Perish the thought I told him, you are both well brought up young ladies. I bet the muggings are good at the moment, make the most of them. Tell OTL I should continue with his "medicine" it seems to be doing him good ;) xxxx

  2. Cocoa thinks that Snowflake and Mr Brambles. She says that she has seen cats and foxes and dogs off and thinks that rats must be easy to take on. I've told her before that the fox retreated from me as did some of the other animals, but she won't have it. She says she also sees a ferret off, that nuisance Peccadillo but, for all her trying that, one hasn't moved out of the house yet.

  3. Morning girls and Mr B from a very wet and windy Wales ... the house has been shakin' rattlin' and rollin' all night and no it wasn't TM jiving it's all she can do to shuffle these days ... it was the wind. Love all the pics today that poor little oriental dog he sure needs his coat on this weather. Hope you girls weren't flirting too much with those boys they're not in your league, babes!! Believe today is a very special day for Miss Snowflake cos it's the anniversary of her straying into your garden ... what a stroke of luck of all the gardens in the world she ended up in yours and kind OTL helped her ...and look at her now, life of luxury with Mr B and you two to watch over her. Just hope if OTL does trap the rat he won't decide to adopt it as well, things could get crowded in the office !! Well girls look forward to tonight's instalment, speak soon xxx Jasper & herself xx
