Christmas Eve Fun!

Ho, Ho, Ho, Woofers!

Daisy, Holly, Snowflake and Mr Brambles here!

The ferrets have got an early Christmas Present! OTL has used one of the cardboard boxes to build a maze, inside the box, by using the cardboard tubes he has gathered over the months. He has cut three holes in the side and mounted the tubes inside so the ferrets can explore the inside of the box and tubes, just like a rabbit warren!

They had a terrific game diving in and out and chasing each other around all over the place!

Come out, come out, where ever you are!
 Mr Brambles was in a good mood and chased Snowflake all through the new Playground. I can see that is going to be a big hit with both of them!

A Playground Pyramid!
 Old Two Legs stayed in bed a bit longer today, you know, he hasn't been on his paddling machine since Friday! We reckon that his is going to be terribly out of condition by the time he gets back on it again!

Overnight it had been blowing and raining and of course us being low down and near the coast are at risk of flooding. This morning when we went out for our morning stroll, our village was surrounded by flooded roads!

It was a good job that OTL took the big car 'cos we came across some mighty big puddles!

Puddle Number One!

A bit further on we came to an even bigger puddle that looks like it had flooded the car stuck in the middle!

It was a good job OTL brought the big car, especially when ahead of us we saw a tree, in the middle of the road!

A Tree Crossing?
Down on the beach it was wet and windy, so, we didn't hang about too much and Mr Brambles got into his position in the hood of OTL's coat. He was laughing and called down to us that with his hood up, OTL really did look like Obi-Wan Kenobi!

Me and Obi-Wan Kenobi
Mind you, Snowflake stayed tucked up in her 'Pocket' until it was time for a run on the beach!

On the way back to the car, Mr B was full of it and enjoyed chasing Holly and me, trying to nip our back legs. Sometimes he gets close so we are always keeping our eyes on his movements!

Nearly Gotcha!
 Back home, Mr Brambles tried to play OTL's banjo he has hanging on the wall and managed to split one of his claws. So that prompted OTL to give Mr Brambles a claw clipping!

To stop him from wriggling, (Mr B not OTL) the bottle of Ferretone is placed on Mr B's tummy and the lid opened up. Mr Brambles is so busy trying to lick the Ferretone off the lid that he doesn't notice OTL doing the clipping.

Sneaky or wot!

A Lid Licking Ferret!
After clearing up the Playground we all crashed out and even OTL fell asleep in the office!

Lunchtime came and we looked out of the window, it was overcast but OTL reckons we should take a chance so off we went!

We got down to the car park and jumped out and dashed for the long grass!

I reckon we should make it a quick wee!
 As we headed further along the path it started, the rain, it came down in buckets! We raced back to the car and sat there watching the rain. OTL did suggest we could wait a bit longer and go out again but we decided we would make use of the back garden if we got desperate!

Has it stopped yet?
Back home we both got a good rub down and OTL gave us a brush to get all the grass bits out of our coats!

When we went up stairs we found that the ferrets had been busy! There were a pair of OTL's old socks hung up outside their cage.

Dear Father Christmas!
Mr Brambles said that Snowflake and he were going to write a note for Father Christmas a bit later tonight, after they had their afternoon snooze!

So, we are off to see if there are any muggins to be had. See you all tomorrow!

A Merry Christmas to all You Woofers

May you have a Super Day Tomorrow


Daisy, Holly, Snowflake & Mr Brambles!


  1. Well you have had a fun xmas eve. Loved the photos, especially the one of Mr Brambles and OB1 and the one of you all in the car. Are those socks big enough for Santa to get everything in for the ferrets?
    I hope you and Holly have bigger ones. The roads down you way don't look too good, we have a tree down out front but it isn't causing any problems. It's quite wet and windy here. Archie has had fun exploring all the odd branches in the garden. Archie is at present having a snooze, he's been told that Santa won't come but the vet will if he doesn't stop his chewing. He isn't bothered though, he don't mind who comes to visit. Well good luck with the muggings tonight, it might be something lovely and Christmasy. Happy Christmas to you all, Mr. B, Snowflake, Holly, Daisy, OTL and TM hope you all have a lovely day tomorrow and I'm sure Santa will be there soon, tell Holly not to bite his bum though. ;) xxxxxxx

  2. Happy Christmas Daisy and all. I just know Santa is going to bring you loads of treats tomorrow. Have a lovely day together x

  3. Hi girls and Mr B well you ferrets got in quick hanging out your socks for Santa, hope you girls are going to have something larger for your presents cos you won't get many doggy treats in one of those socks. Love all the photos of the ferrets penthouse and their Maze. Well can't hang around on the computer cos I can smell lovely smells coming from the kitchen so there is mugging to be done. Then tomorrow we'll see what all the fuss is about...so Have a very Merry Christmas it's going to be fun xxx Jasper and his TM xxx

  4. May the force be with you Kendo!

    Thanks for giving us loads of pleasure throughout the year Daisy, your poor paws must be red raw by now. You never know you might get a pair of mittens tucked in a sock in the morning and maybe some Turkey.

    Wishing you, Holly Mr Brambles Snowflake OTL and TM a smashing Christmas. XXXX

  5. Thank you for your lovely blog, those roads don't seem very inviting but glad that you are all safe. Love the pictures especially the one of Mr B with Mr OTL, I thought those socks looked a little bit on the small size to get a really decent present from but then I suppose TMs new "Diamond Ring" will only take up a tiny ferret sized sock!!!! Hope you have lots and lots of presents and Daisy......... I still think you need an I-Paws to do your typing on, then you can keep up to date on the comments and can study the Stock Market for the price of Chews. Have a wonderful Christmas -- Daisy, Holly, Snowflake, Mr Brambles and also not forgetting your housekeeper and dedicated driver. XXXX XX
