Three Wheels On His Boat, But He's Still Rowing Along!

Hi Woofers!

Here we are again, Daisy, Holly, Snowflake and Mr Brambles.

Did we have a laugh this morning, there he was, Captain Pug Wash, paddling away for all he was worth. He got up to the last sixty seconds of his half an hour paddle around the office. The last sixty seconds he doubles his pace and 'Goes Like The Clappers', a sort of 'Sprint Finish'.

So, there he was, in, out, in, out, in, ow!

The sliding seat he was sitting on seized up! His butt wasn't moving but the rest of him was thrashing around like a headless chicken!

Holly said that he looked like a Woodpecker on Speed!

After he managed to extract himself from all the straps that keep him on the paddle machine, we saw that one of the rubber wheels had come off the seat and was jammed between the mechanism! It looks like Old Two Legs had got an 'Engineering Job' to add to the other jobs he had lined up for today!

Mr Brambles was still getting upset 'cos he reckons the 'Sea Weed Monster' has been pinching his holes. Determined to 'Have a Word' with the Monster, he set about digging around in the sea weed!

I'll find you, and when I do, you're in trouble!
We haven't told him that crabs hide under rocks and sea weed and they have big claws. It will be interesting to see how he reacts when he finds one of them!

Miss Snowflake was getting a bit fed up with having to wait while Mr Brambles 'Ferreted Around' and went beck to OTL to see if she could 'Just Wait in the Carry Bag?'

No Way! Once your out, your out for the whole run!

Oooo! he is sooo! Hard!

Pleeese! Just while he is ferreting about?
 Holly and I played on the beach and had a race from one end to the other. We hung about waiting for the ferrets to head back to the car and when they got to the rock wall they both said they could sniff 'Dog Wee' and wanted to know if it was us!

Cheeky Ferrets!

No, that's Not Our Wee!
 Back home to breakfast, super, still warm, greasy, yummy, chicken with the skin on!

Just the way we like it!

After we got back the rain started again and you know what? It didn't let up until four in the afternoon! OTL was looking at the Doppler Web Site that shows where the rain is falling and he spotted we 'Had A Window' where we could get down to the Sea Wall again, have our walk and get back to the car before it all started again!

Now, who's a clever OTL then?

He managed to get the weather well enough but he has failed on the rowing machine. The wheel that came off can't be remounted 'cos it is split right across the wheel and even when he tried to use it on just three wheels, it kept jamming.

I think that tomorrow or maybe on Monday, we will be taking the machine down to the local tip!

At the moment he is Surfing The Web to find a reasonably priced replacement. Some of them are terribly expensive and he is crying as he is searching, so imagine how he will be when he has to finally click the 'Buy' button!

Not to worry, at least he will be fitter than if he just sat in the chair and did no exercise, and, as he says, 'You can't take it with you' which is true, but why does he have to cry so much?

See you tomorrow!


Daisy, Holly, Miss Snowflake and Mr Brambles.


  1. ahhh poor OTL, he's always digging in his wallet. Hope you didn't giggle at him when the wheel came off, would be awful if he hurt himself and he couldn't take you lot out for your daily walks and digs. I think if a crab takes on Mr Brambles it might come off 2nd, I bet Mr B's teeth will soon persuade the crab to let go. So you've had a yummy breakfast today, you lucky things, OTL might have just shoved down doggie scoff and gone to surf for a new rowing machine. He's good to you lot. Lovely pictures of you all today. Don't blame Miss Snowflake for wanting to get back in the pouch. Have a lovely evening, keep the tissues handy for OTL. Don't keep the neighbours awake with any rowdy singing :) xxxx

  2. TM here and missing you very much.... poor OTL more money flying out the door! Pleased I'm not there to hear the sobbin!
    Look after him and make sure he keeps your 'nibbles drawer' topped up Daisy ..
    Hugs for everyone xxxxxxxx

  3. Er, wot about a turbo on a new rowing machine then he can go faster. I thing I will stick to my rubber band, ball, bike and step as supplied foc from Trevor, I am a cheapskate. Glad OTL s feeding you nicely. XXXX
