Mary Celeste II is launched!

Hi Woofers!

Us again, Daisy, Holly, Miss Snowflake and Mr Brambles here.

It's been an exciting day today, first of all we went for our morning jog along the beach while the ferrets did what ferrets do best!

Just 'Ferreting About'!
It was cloudy and very overcast but the sun was trying to get through the clouds and at one time we did see some blue, just enough to make a pair of sailors trousers, as Old Two Legs would say!

OK, where's the Sailor?
 Miss Snowflake said that she looked nothing like a train and to prove it she would run along the Sea Wall so Old Two Legs could take a photo!

08:30 to Paddington!
Now, just look at that photo, is that a Ferret Train or is that a Ferret Train!

Back home we saw that OTL had received an SMS on his phone saying that the new rowing machine is due to arrive this morning, then he got another to say that it would be delivered in the next thirty minutes, then he got another to say that it would be delivered in the next ninety minutes!

OTL went back to cleaning the ferret poo pots and cooking our breakfast!

A bit later, there was a big van pulled up outside and the delivery driver was struggling to get a big box out of the side door. The Rowing Machine had arrived!

We helped OTL unpack it and got the packing stuff all over the place! It was great fun chewing on the bits and then spitting them back into the box! Phattooee!

The instructions looked very complicated but it wasn't too long before OTL had it all screwed together and working.

It looks a bit flasher than the old one but this one is a bit lighter, and the seat is bigger, so that's a good thing for OTL!

As soon as it was finished I jumped on and 'Launched' it by saying, 'I name this Rowing Machine, Mary Celeste II and Gawd help all who paddle on her!'

Well and Truly Launched!
OTL said that I should have a go by paddling it around the office for a while. I think my 'Woof Off' made it clear that he had the machine all to himself, even the ferrets didn't want to know!

Mind you, it looks like the alarm will be reset for six tomorrow, there goes our lay in!

Next problem is to get rid of the big cardboard box. He packed all the packaging inside and put it in the back of the car, next he got us ready and we went in the car as well!

As we got near to the tip, there was a great long line of cars all stopped and not going anywhere 'Blow This For a Game of Woofers' says OTL and turns the car around and headed for The New Park!

Twice in two days! Are we lucky or Wot!

As soon as we are let off the lead, we start chatting with the other Woofers and Holly got chatting to Holly!

She was one of those 'Scruffbag' doggies that are always friendly and willing to have a chat!

My names Holly as well!
Moo'ing on we met up with a strange Heifer, Holly says 'Wot's Your Name?' and he says 'Lamb Chop!' and Holly says 'That's a Strange Name' and he says 'Not for a Sheep'!

Holly was going to get into a discussion but OTL called her away, so we never found out the story behind the name!

Call me Lamb Chop!
 We got to the play ground and I had a jump up on the tree trunk and sniffed the air, was that Rabbit I could sniff?

Yes it was! Off I went like a Rocket Powered Puppy and pretty soon OTL and Holly were left miles behind. I ended up in the woods but unfortunately I bumped into a big patch of burrs, and I was stuck, I couldn't move without them hurting and scratching me, it was horrible!

OTL and Holly finally arrived and set about De-Burring me! It took a little while and several attempts to get them all out, I was not a happy puppy!

Back at the play ground Holly was playing 'Hide and Woof' with OTL and she was hiding behind the wall but what she didn't know was that OTL could see her through the window!

Holly's Best Side!
On our way back to the car OTL spotted a tree with some buds bursting, so, he just had to take a picture and call it 'Spring'!

We went up to the tip on the way back but the line of cars was still there, so, off home, we can always come back another day!

See you all tomorrow!


Daisy, Holly, Miss Snowflake and Mr Brambles


  1. Wow, you've had a really exciting day today. I agree, Snowflake does look like a ferret train, love her tail. I bet OTL is well pleased with his new Mary Celeste, it looks the bees knees, specially with you sitting on it, what a beautiful picture. So more lovely cooked brekkie today, you really are being treated well. Shame about the queue for the tip (not really) at least you got to the park and will have to go back again soon. Sorry to hear all about the burrs sticking in you, they're horrible things. Loved all the pictures today. Fancy Holly meeting up with another Holly, it is a pretty name though. You just wait, if Holly reads your blog later and sees what you've put about her best side, she might just have a woof in your ear. It's good to see buds appearing. Have a good evening, you could all practice your sea shanty's to sing in the morning when OTL goes for a trip round the office in his new boat. :) xxx

  2. Oh Daisy ... I agree with Lazy.... what a grand day for you except for the burrs! I love your picture on the new rowing machine and Holly with her 'best side! ... I'm still missing you both but not long now and I'll be heading home... one more day ! Please tell OTL I've purchased a new carpet sweeper for all the bits of carrot that Holly leaves on the carpet!
    Love and cuddles from TM xxxxxxxxxxx

  3. Oh what a lovely blog and what lovely pictures, I think this is one of your best. That new Mary Celeste looks the business, did OTL wear out the other one or is TM going to use that in her craft room while working? Hollys' best side is a matter of opinion I bet she is well pleased. How is the block paving looking and has OTL finished all the decorating? Umm probably not and after TM bought him a new carpet sweeper, that doesn't seem very fair for OTL to have a new rowing machine and TM a new carpet sweeper! Looking forward to the next instalment, I haven't been using my computer much recently so have been a bit behind but not as behind as Holly. xxxx

  4. Sorry to be late on parade as I have been "working", I know not much fun but it has to be done.
    Nice looking rowing machine to get OTL in trim.Love Holly's' but and the spring picture, lets hope spring will soon be here. XXX
