OLT's in tears again!

Hi Woofers!

Daisy, Holly, Miss Snowflake, Miss Twinkle and Mr Brambles here!

Well, another day of fun and excitement!

Yesterday evening, Old Two Legs was clearing out the cages and ended up with Snowflake and Mr Brambles running around the office floor creating mayhem, as usual! Miss Twinkle was put into Snowy Heights so she could have a 'Sniff' of her future living quarters, if all goes well!

Now, Snowy Heights has two floor levels and a door in both levels, the top door was locked after Miss Twinkle was placed in there but OTL forgot to shut the bottom door.

Miss Snowflake spotted this mistake and as Miss Twinkle descended from the upper floor, she was met by Miss Snowflake who had come back in for a wee.

Well, first there was 'Sniffing', then Miss Twinkle did a quick snap at Miss Snowflake and Miss Snowflake took exception and the pair ended up in a 'Ferret Ball' on the floor with a couple of bits of fur flying in the air before OTL managed to separate them!

So much for the 'First Encounter' but as OTL says, as long as there is no blood, or fear pooing then they will have to sort out the hierarchy themselves!

Next time I think the office floor may be the best 'Sparring Ground', at least OTL will be able to get to them if there is any squealing!

Wake me when it's 'Round Two'!
This morning it was raining again and down on the Sea Wall we reckon there is just as much water on the paths as there is in the sea!

The ferrets stayed at home, we got wet, OTL got wet and we left the camera at home!

Miss Twinkle and OTL headed off to the vets where he stabbed Miss Twinkle with the needle. You know what? She didn't even flinch when he did that! Maybe it was the Ferretone that OTL was feeding Miss Twinkle that did the trick!

The vet agreed with OTL that Miss Twinkle was six months to a year old 'cos it is difficult to tell the age of a ferret, all you have to go on is the condition of their teeth and their general appearance.

So, January 27th is Miss Twinkles birthday and next year she will be two years old!

When OTL got back home, he was sniffing and sobbing, poor lad had just opened his wallet again at the vets and they have taken all his money, again!

Lunch time we were out down the beach and it was still raining, but not very much! I thought that it may be a good idea if I went for a swim, well, let's face it, I could be wet in or out of the water!

OTL, Can I go for a swim?
OTL didn't agree with me and said it would be too cold and he didn't fancy a wet dog sitting in his car on the way home!

I must admit, I stamped my paws a showed off a bit!

I Wanna Go Swimin!
 Still didn't do me any good though! To make up for it, Holly and I had a race along the beach and up the stairs, you know what?

She beat me. Just?

Holly wins by a paw!
We met up with William and Bentley and as normal, William was all over OTL. He said that he was going to change his name to something really cool.

Instead of William he was going to be called 'Will-I-Woz'!

You can imagine, Holly and I almost fell on our tails from laughing and  William had a mischievous grin on his face as well!
Will-I-Woz, the Cool Dude!
Back home Miss Twinkle was getting to grips with the SAS Sleeping Bag (Steal And Stash!). It was funny watching her 'cos she started off curled up in a ball when OTL put her in the bag, then she would give a little wriggle and her head would fall out, then a bit later her shoulders were falling out and then after that, the rest of her fell out in a big heap on the cage floor!

Falling out of bed, slowly!
 She said that the Distemper Injection made her sleepy but as Holly said, 'Everything makes a Ferret Sleepy!'

I'll just have another five minutes!
OTL is busy doing some engineering in the bath room 'cos the shower needs some attention, we all reckon it's because he uses it too much, I mean, Every Morning is a bit much, us dogs can go for three months between our appointment with the Poodle Parlour!

See you tomorrow!


Daisy, Holly, Miss Snowflake, Miss Twinkle and Mr Brambles.


  1. Hi Woofers and Fuzzies.... great blog today, Daisy ... think it's time you thought about publishing your work ... think of all the chicken and heart dinners you could buy .... after all with all these extra mouths to feed and vets bills you could end up on Dog Scoff everyday ....dare I say it.!! That reminds me if you can work the tv remote, Daisy there is a program on Channel 5 called "The Truth about your dog's food" might be a bit of an eyeopener. Loving all the photos today ... especially the one of you having a strop cos you couldn't go swimming. Little Twinkle is making the most of the luxuries that Godwin Mansions offers its Furry inmates she's made herself at home just hope she and Snowflake can get on and learn to share Mr B ... cos he's loving all the attention, I bet. Well better be off to take my OTL for a run over the fields before it gets too dark or I might lose him there See you all tomorrow. ooooooooh and fancy you knowing a cool dude like Will-I-Woz :) xxxx Jasper and her indoors xx

  2. Lovely blog today Daisy. Loved the pictures, specially you putting your paw down with a firm hand. So, it was handbags at dawn, what naughty girls they are to fight ....... hair pulling is so unlady like. I'm sure you and Holly will give them good examples for behaviour. I bet Mr Brambles thinks he's in heaven. Poor OTL, the vet is a bit naughty to charge him for Twinkle's vaccination. Next time you, Holly or Snowflake go, I think you should give him a bit of a nip. Have a lovely evening all :) Archie and I are getting our new boiler on Saturday, so we'll be basking in the warm on Sunday xxxxx

  3. Daisy you write such a cracking blog. I agree with Annie M, you should be published. So glad all is well with Miss Twinkle. Understandable that she would be a bit stand-offish when cornered by Snowflake! Lovely pictures today, as always x

    1. I also thought the vet was a bit cheeky asking poor OTL to pay for Miss T's injections having asked for OTL's help in the first place. Poor OTL x

    2. Agree, Jane, OTL & TM are doing a great big favour fostering little Twinkle, she is getting a lot more personal attention thus saving the vets a lot of work .... they could have covered the cost of an injection ...and spared OTL a lot of tears....if Daisy is to be believed :)

    3. I agree, I didn't think the vet would expect OTL to pay for the injection as he was saving the trouble of looking after a lost ferret themselves and OTL didn't want her to pass on anything nasty to our four little friends.

    4. I agree with everyone else that charging someone for doing you a favour is rather cheeky.

  4. What a wet day again today, you did right not going swimming you would have caught a chill driving home in the wet coat. Love the pictures again today, the one with Holly winning in the race up the stairs: her ears are flying out so that gave her the advantage, start practising flapping your ears Dairy then you will beat her in a race next time. Did you watch the programme about what's in dog food, if only TM had your problems would have been over. So much to comment on, there is Wil-I-Woz, you stamping your feet, Ferrets at Dawn, no end to your story today, your poor little paws must be worn out, can't wait to read tomorrows. Promise me no swimming. xxxx plus x

  5. I think all has been said, love the one of you growling Daisy. XXX
