I nearly got a Squirrel!

Hi Woofers!

Us again! Daisy, Holly, Miss Snowflake and Mr Brambles!

Well, where to begin?

Last night Old Two Legs was snoring his head off and the rest of the household were having trouble getting off to sleep. So, remembering Archie Babes trick, I sent Holly up onto the bed and she stuck her cold wet nose into his ear!

It worked!

Holly got kicked off the bed but that was a small price to pay for a good sleep!

Miss Snowflake got woken up by OTL and he tickled her tummy to wake her up. She was laughing and rolling about on her back and wagging her tail from side to side! Of course, Mr Brambles was busy eating his breakfast and was complaining about the chuckling noise she was making and how it was disturbing his breakfast time!

Well, as we were all up and awake we were off down to the beach good and early!

The ferrets were straight down to the sea weed saying they were 'Off for a Paddle'!

Race you to the water!
We, on the other paw, said 'Hello' to Bryn and a Hairy Labrador we sometimes meet. Then, as we were on the beach, we spotted that they were getting 'Treats'!

How come they got treats and not us?

Holly was right put out!

Look! They're getting Treats!
Of course, OTL was off playing with his camera and he spotted a boat that looked like it had run aground on the mud!

I said Reverse!
The clouds were blowing across the sun and he took this one of the light shining on the mud!

Dappled Light on the Mud.
Lunchtime we were out doing some deliveries and ended up at The Forest!

It was good to be down there again 'cos the squirrels were out and running around! OTL was running around trying to photograph a Meadow Brown!

OK, be quick 'cos I'm just too busy eating the nectar!
 Holly and I were doing more serious stuff, like Squirrel Hunting!

I was trying the 'Stand Still and Watch Out' and it worked up to a point. The squirrels that were running around on the branches having fun and didn't see me. But, they were just too high up in the tree for me to get at!

Come on squirrel, come to Daisy!
There was one that was on the ground but it was just too fast and it got away. Well, it got away from me but OTL did catch it!

A High Speed Squirrel!
 We managed to scare a few more squirrels but they were just too far away to be worth chasing. We even managed to upset a fox and he wasn't hanging about to say 'Hello'!

It's Them again, I'm off!
Back home The Missus came back from her lunchtime meeting with her mates and was dancing about in a new 'Pinny' with her name and 'Craft Workshop' embroidered on the front!

Now there's no living with her!

Wot a Tart!

As soon as TM returned home OTL was off to some work!

We spent the afternoon snoozing in the shade.

Friday tomorrow so that means the weekend is here, rain and sunshine!

See you tomorrow!


Daisy, Holly, Miss Snowflake and Mr Brambles.


  1. Ohhh Daisy, you sneaky girl, I bet you were having a laugh when Holly got shoved off the bed. Archie says nice one Daisy. Didn't those other woofers share their treats? What meanies, you share OTL's tickles under their chins. Love all the pictures, that OTL sure is good behind a camera. Is TM still dancing in her apron, I wonder if she'll be hovering in it? Looks like you had fun down at the forest with all the squirrels and the fox to hunt. Happy muggings tonight girls, hope the weather stays good for the weekend. Archie sends licks and wags xxxx

  2. Nice Meadow Brown, that OTL is such a clever chap. XXX

  3. So much going on, I thought you might have been able to climb into the hole in the tree trunk and wait quietly. That would have unnerved the squirrels you could have had a real laugh. Lovely butterfly and so many different things to photograph, today was a really good day with such fun. xxxx
