Winter is coming!

Hi Woofers!

Us here! Daisy, Holly, Snowflake and Mr Brambles.

We went for our walk this morning and all of us, except Old Two Legs, had a sniff of the air and could feel a change coming. You know it's strange that the Two Legs don't feel it until they are buried ten feet in snow!

Snowflake has had her moult and now has a fine covering of fur and dare I sat it? A bit of fat!

Mr Brambles has grown his tail fur but hasn't got the covering of Snowflake yet. Holly and I keep growing our hair but as soon as it gets warm, we are rushed off to the Poodle Parlour for a 'Shampoo & Set' which to begin with is a bit drafty around the tail!

The Two Legs seem to just put on a big coat and a hat and off they go complaining about the cold!

If they put their minds to it, they would have grown loads of hair during the summer and would be nice and warm when the cold comes!

OTL has started to grow a beard of sorts but it won't keep him warm. Mr B likes to 'Snuggle' up to it and rub his nose on OTL's chin 'cos he says it tickles his nose and whiskers and makes him laugh!

OTL forgot the camera this morning but he remembered it at lunch time.

When we went out it was still grey and dark looking and the sniff of cold winds was getting stronger!

I found this Super Sniff  on the beach and was thoroughly enjoying the aroma and I called Holly over to join me but she had found one of her own! 

Oh! Wow! This is something special!
With Holly preoccupied with her sniff I did the only thing left to me.

I invited OTL over for a sniff!

OTL! Get a load of this sniff!
 You know, he didn't even come over to have a look, never mind have a sniff! Well, that's the last time he gets an invitation from me!

The earth mover was bashing away at the cliff edge again and was raking it all back to make a gentle slope down to the beach.

Sculptured edge?
 I'm not sure what they will be doing in the end, maybe sow grass seeds and wild flowers, OTL would be happy to see that!

Hey Mister! Got any Seeds?
We were glad to get back home and I got onto my cushion for a snooze. It was under OTL's desk where it is nice and warm! Holly got onto the sofa and spent her time watching the birds in the garden!

Now I can sniff that dinner is being cooked so I'm off to prepare for some serious mugging!

See you tomorrow!


Daisy, Holly, Snowflake and Mr Brambles


  1. What? OTL didn't come over and sniff your sniff? OTL, you don't know what you might of missed. Sounds like you've had a quiet sort of day but a pleasant one. It is a bit chilly in the mornings now. I hope you're wearing your new coats, has OTL found any where that does fuzzie coats? I bet you keep OTL's feet warm under his desk. Hope the muggings are as good as you made them sound :) xxx

  2. It wasn't as though you had invited him to have a roll in the sniff, I can see that would have made him standoffish but not to come and just give a S n i f f tut tut! The cold made him forget his camera, does he wear a hat in the chill, it would be awful if he never took those superb photos for us to see. We saw a Christmas Present for Snowflake today, Mike will send you a picture of it. Keep warm and hopefully you will have had a nice warm dinner with a bit of gravy on top. xxxx

  3. Peccadillo is large and fluffy too though she is still leaving some hair on my coat. Cocoa may get so. There is hair growing on part of the area of her leg that the vets shaved.
