Happy Birthday Archie Babe!

Hi Woofers!

Daisy, Holly ,Snowflake and Mr Brambles here again!

First of all a Big Wet Slobbery 'Happy Birthday' to our mate Archie Babe! A whole two years old!

I remember when we were two years old, little young whippersnappers we were getting into all the trouble we could!

Just for Archie, we have got a present here for him and Holly's been guarding it!

Happy Birthday Archie!
There now, doesn't that make your mouth dribble!

Now it may be Archie's birthday but down here it's grey and cloudy with very little sunshine at all!

A Little Bit of Blue!

We went on our morning walk, and again had to leave the ferrets at home, they are not happy about that and Mr Brambles is kicking the water bowl around again!

You know yesterday, Mr B started the kicking bit, so Old Two Legs took it out and put the bowl on the floor, Mr B jumped out of the cage and ran over to where OTL was resting his fingers on the bowl, Mr B jumped at it and gave it such a kick that water sloshed everywhere, all over the carpet and OTL's hand!

So, OTL still reckons it is too wet and damp out but has had an 'Idea'!

That normally is good for a laugh!

OTL has decided to get a carry bag designed for ferrets so he can take them out and if needed, pick them up and carry them in their bag! This is a picture he got from the web site.

A Ferret Carry Bag with Padding and Harness Clips!
Now, OTL may look a bit of a tart with it over his shoulder, but at least the ferrets will be safe and dry!

Who knows, he may even have it under his coat just to keep it dry if it rains and to stop other Two Legs from pointing their fingers at him and laughing and calling him names!

Now all this talk of 'Going Out' has made Snowflake spend time rattling the cage and coming out to chase OTL and the 'Cat Tease' which Snowflake thinks is great fun! So, OTL says to Snowflake, 'Fancy a run out?' and before she can say another word, she was packed up and in the travelling cage!

Mr Brambles stayed asleep or pretended to be asleep! He didn't move a muscle, not even a twitch of his whiskers!

So, OTL left him alone and off we went with Snowflake for a walk.

Well, Snowflake is not a great lover of cold, wet or windy days and we had two out of three, it was windy and colder than the office, so she stayed in OTL's pocket until we got to the beach!

This is NOT ferret weather!
 Even then she was not too happy about walking and spent a long time sniffing the air.

I Sniff Woofer!
What she didn't realise was, she was sniffing us! In the end OTL had to pick her up and quick as a flash she was back in his pocket snuggling up and keeping warm!

Back home and Mr Brambles woke up long enough to have a chat about the beach and then he was back asleep!

If it is sunny tomorrow I think we will all be going out down to the beach again, now that will be fun!

See you tomorrow!


Daisy, Holly, Snowflake and Mr Brambles.


  1. Archie says thank you for his birthday wishes and the picture of Holly guarding that lovely looking carrot. Archie has had a carrot today, he's allowed to have one as a treat now and he thoroughly enjoyed it. He says to let you know, he is getting into as much trouble as he can before he gets to being a big boy of 3. I think OTL will look the bees knees when he goes out with his bag of ferrets, they'll be snug and warm in that, ask him if they do a doggie size one for you and Holly so you can go in it on rainy days. That Mr Brambles is a bit sneaky, fancy going off to sleep when it's walkies time. Hope Snowflake enjoyed her trip out on the beach. Archie sends slobbery kisses back to you with tail wags and hopes you girls get some good muggings tonight, he says that carrot looks delicious and maybe you should share it, especially if you only got doggie scoff today, which he hopes you didn't :) xxxx

  2. Hi Woofers & Fuzzies, first of all Happy Birthday to young Archie ...ahhhh to be that young again!!. Cannot believe that Holly is sitting there looking at that carrot and not munching it, I would have eaten it, ribbon and all before OTL had a chance to get his camera. Love the idea of the ferret bag, there will be no excuses from the fuzzies then eh!! I love my walks all those lovely fresh sniffs in the morning .. they set you up for the day, what d'you say girlies, well must dash the missus wants the desk for crafting.... wot!!! love Jasper and herself xxx

  3. My fault entirely for being late on parade because I was going to suggest OTL made a Doggie Bag for you and Holly but Lazy Sunday already suggested it, boo. He would be weighed down with all four of you and his camera and then TM would want one as well, that would be good.... Perhaps not.........
    Lovely sky picture and Snowflake is looking real bonny as is carrot guard Holly, I wonder how she managed not to attack it and eat it. Lovely, how you all manage to get out tomorrow in the dry while TM does more of her crafting. xxxx

  4. I recon a kennel on wheels is the answer with a separate section for the Ferrets and of course a small store for carrots. Oh and some sandwiches for Holly. XXX
