It's The Cat Womans Fault!

Hi Woofers!

McDaisy, MacHolly, Miss MacSnowflake and Mr McBrambles again!

You know, it's still raining! We got up thin morning and I'm sure the caravan was sloshing about like a boat in the harbour!

The sea gulls sitting on the wall didn't help either!

Old Two Legs took the ferrets out for a quick rush around the field and they quickly headed back to the warmth of the caravan! With the Travelling Cage, they have an 'On Suite Poo Pot' so, unlike us doggies they can stay in the warm all day!

We headed out to Loch Frisa again and enjoyed a quick rush up and down the path. It was a quick run and we were back in the car in no time!

Back in the caravan The Missus was going a bit 'Stir Crazy' so we decided to take the ferrets down to Calgary Bay which MacHolly and I have had some wonderful times! There are rabbit holes the size of road tunnels and sniffs you could die for!

The beach is soft sand and it is shallow for miles so a doggy our size can splash and paddle without having to swim!

Off we all went, TM wore her wellies, just in case she fancied a paddle!

As soon as TM opened the car door MacHolly and I just flew out of the car and headed off to the rabbit holes as fast as we could go, with TM charging after us!

We were put on the lead as soon as she reached us and that was it, no more rabbit hunting for us!

It was your fault running off so soon!
It was fun watching the ferrets explore the sand!

Mr McBrambles was running up and down the beach sniffing and digging and laughing his head off!

This is GOOD!
Miss MacSnowflake rushed down to the waters edge and had a taste of the sea, Yuk! Too salty for her taste and it was also too cold for a swim!

I'll pass on a swim today, thank you!
Back up the beach they decided to make a sand castle but they just couldn't agree on the right spot!

No, we'll build it over here!
Miss MacSnowflake headed off into the long grass, which she said sniffed of rabbits!

I can sniff rabbits!
Mr McBrambles followed her and they were both spotted by another one of these camera nuts, this one thought the ferrets were 'So Sweet and Cuddly', yeah? Try feeling their teeth!

Still it didn't stop her from throwing herself on the ground and trying to catch a shot of the ferrets 'ferreting' around in the Machar!

Come on ferrets, smile for the camera!
TM & OTL stopped off at a restaurant for lunch while MacHolly, the ferrets and I had a snooze in the car, tired after all that rabbit chasing!

Tomorrow we are expecting Karen (Cat Woman) & Ian to pay a visit to Mull to see if they can spot a Sea Eagle and some Otters.

Let's hope the rain holds off!

See you tomorrow!

McDaisy, MacHolly, Miss MacSnowflake and Mr McBrambles!

OK, Back Again!

Yesterday Ian and Karen turned up on the docks and we met them for a day's bird spotting and otter spotting. We drove almost all the way around the island stopping and looking then looking and stopping.

There was one point when we spotted some Sea Eagles circling above us and The Cat Woman asked if  OTL could put us on a lead and tie us to a tree trunk so the eagles would come down to see what we were!


Then after all that, we got dragged off to a pub for food and drink!

So, we didn't get time to do the post!

Today we have left the ferrets to catch up on their sleep and we are off for a drive around looking for Otters!

So, see you tomorrow!

  1. Oooooohhh double bubble today :) I hope OTL didn't tie you to a post so the sea eagles could come down and frighten you ........... bad lady! Sounds like you're getting out and about even if it is raining, sorry to hear that it is. I bet those McFerrets loved that sandy beach. Tsk TM, fancy putting you and Holly on a lead when there is so much to explore, doesn't she know a dog's got to do what a dogs got to do? Hmm there is much to be said for ensuite poo pots, saves you getting wet in the rain, perhaps OTL could rig up a poo pot for you under the awning. Hope TM hasn't broken any more of your toys poking about on the awning. I reckon that lady laying down with the camera is a nargle in disguise. Enjoy your day, looking forward to reading more adventures of the McGodwins :) xxxx

  2. HI McFurries, we have had rain & thunder & lightning here. Sounds a if OTL & TM should have listened to you Mcfurries when you said you wanted to repair that old boat you found on Grain beach, you could have made it into an ark and you McFurries could have gone in two by two! :). Fancy Catwoman wanting to tie you to a tree as bait for the SeaEagles ... Lovely to have a double helping of digipost today. We do appreciate poor OTL having to suffer yet another Cup of coffee and a bun everytime your blog is posted ... he's a good egg isn't he....not wanting to let your public down. Hope the rain holds off so that you can do more exploring ... I love the look of that sandy beach. Can hear my missus in the kitchen so I'm off to do some muggin' Speak again soon xx Jasper & her indoors

  3. I hope your visitors have brought some of our nice weather with them for you to borrow then you can really get some excitement in your adventures. We had a small rain shower about 2-30 pm today and the blue sky has left for others to enjoy but it is still warm. Jasper was quite right about that boat, if only you had been able to salvage it your problems would have been over. My friend Margaret has been in that Craft Shop in Oban and was very envious of TM so will you tell her. The sand looks good and I think McFerrets are enjoying this holiday lark just keep away from the Sea Eagles and those little monsters that like you so much. Looking out for the next instalment, how many sticky buns has McOTL had now? xxxx
