Another swim and a Good Idea from Old Two Legs!

Hello Woofers!

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

Another scorcher of a day! We were a bit late going out this morning so, when we got down to the beach it was a bit warmer than normal!

Now, the sand was still wet but Miss Snowflake was complaining that the sea shells were too hot and when she got to the Sea Wall, she said it was burning her paws!

This is just too hot to walk on!
 Mr Brambles said that he had worked out how to overcome the heat, run!

Try running, it doesn't burn then!
The ferrets were ferreting through the grass and having a great time. Being so small, they can hide in the grass and stay cool, of course that means they are slower than us doggies and that means we get hotter than they do!

So? What's your problem?
 Holly and I were having a rest by the side of the path at every bit of shade we could find!

Not that it bothered the ferrets, they were still snuffling their way along the grass!

I wish they would just get a move on!
 Miss Snowflake kept on about being big wasn't all it was cracked up to be!

Small is better sometimes!
 Mr Brambles was snuffling along not taking too much notice of us or Miss Snowflake!

I think I''ll have a rest in a minute or two!
Finally we got to the bench where there was a reasonable bit of shade but as soon as we got there, up comes Miss Snowflake telling us to 'Get a Move On'!

Don't look now but I think there's a ferret close!
Finally, the heat was getting to Mr Brambles and even he had to stop for a rest. OTL picked him up and carried him the rest of the way to the car where he dipped his nose in our water bowl then headed off to his travelling cage to snooze all the way home!

Back at home OTL wrapped a small blanket around a frozen block of stuff he keeps in the freezer. Both Mr Brambles and Miss Snowflake thought it was great and spent some time rolling on it and then snoozing by the side of it!

OTL says he thinks that's a winner when it gets too hot!

Lunchtime we had another winner! The tide was in and so was I!

Life doesn't get much better!
I had a great time, Holly on the other paw didn't fancy getting her paws wet, so she stayed on the shore and kept on asking if I'd finished yet!

A bit further up the Sea Wall we met a couple of Bozo's and Holly was moaning to the smaller dog about not getting wet and being too hot and she was agreeing with Holly!

They were just like a couple of old women gassing over the garden fence!

No Dear, I don't like the water on my paws either!
Holly even managed to get ahead so she could have a lay down under the Rabbit Bush, of course, all the rabbits were underground snoozing in the cool!

It is a good a place as any to have a rest!
Back home we were in the garden, having a snooze in the shade of the tree and listening to the water fountain tinkle away.

Quite restful really!

So, I'm off the finish off the Ox Heart and then do some mugging!

See you tomorrow!


Daisy, Holly, Miss Snowflake and Mr Brambles.


  1. I'm dead jealous of your dip in the sea Daisy. You do enjoy your swim, it's a real shame Holly won't give it a try. I wonder if TM could design and knit some little ferret booties, so that Miss Snowflake and Mr Brambles don't burn their feet on the hot sea shells. Perhaps if they had booties they would walk faster and wouldn't hold you up. I don't know how Mr Brambles puts up with all the wimmin in the house, I bet he and OTL have secret chats about wimmin. Lovely pictures again today. Glad you got decent scoff, hope OTL is getting decent scoff too. Happy mugging tonight, have a good night and looking forward to Saturdays blog as well xxxxx

  2. Hi all, love the one with the "old women gassing", that made my day. Holly is a bit of a wimp not going in the water but ll sorts as they say. Smashing pictures today and have a nice weekend.
