Snowflake shows her teeth!

Ho, Ho, Ho, Woofers!

It's us, Daisy, Holly, Snowflake and Mr Brambles.

Good news, Old Two Legs had a quiet'ish night last night, low noises of coughing and wheezing and an occasional moan but we all got a good sleep. Well almost.

Yesterday afternoon Holly and I got a Chicken & Rice Chew which is a big favourite with us. Holly finished off her chew, with a little help from me, and when we went to bed OTL picked up my chew and put it on the office desk. Now it must have been a concern to Holly 'cos she couldn't get to sleep worrying about the chews safety. So, at three forty five, Holly did her 'I want attention' woof and OTL thought it was because she wanted a wee. However, when she got to the bedroom door, she turned left, instead of right, and went into the office, sat down where the chew had been placed and looked up at it. Now, even OTL couldn't miss that pointer!

A bit later the sun woke up and the day started!

OTL said that he would risk taking us all out for a run along the Sea Wall and off we went. Snowflake did her normal trick and took up residence in OTL's pocket, Mr Brambles went exploring and found that he could climb up and get between the hood on OTL's fleece and the hood on his waterproof coat!

Are we there yet?
Of course from that elevated view point he could direct OTL on which path to take down to the beach!
OK, Right Hand Down a Bit!
 Pretty soon we were charging around the beach, even Snowflake was having a sniff and a wander!

'ere, I know this sniff!
We had to turn away when Snowflake was trying to identify a sniff, it was Holly's wee!

No, you tell her!
We met up with Max and Oscar who were still unsure what to make of Snowflake and Mr Brambles, OTL decided to keep both ferrets close but to let Max and Oscar have a sniff. Well, it was OK when Max had a sniff, he was interested in the sniff but Oscar was a little too bold, he came right up to Snowflakes nose and woofed.

Snowflake decided that the woof was not very friendly and nipped him on the nose!

Oscar jumped back with a yelp and sat down on his backside looking all hurt and unsure of what had just happened!

It was a good job it was just a nip instead of a full blown bite or Oscar might have gone home with a bit missing out of his nose!

Still, he has learnt an important lesson..........You don't mess with Snowflake!

OTL is still feeling grotty and has retired to the bed to snooze all afternoon, not that we minded 'cos it is pouring with rain here and there's no way Holly and I would fancy going for another stroll along the Sea Wall!

Let's hope OTL improves or he will be spending Christmas cuddling a box of tissues!

See you tomorrow!
