It's us again! Daisy, Holly, Miss Snowflake and Mr Brambles!
Have we had a day today! First of all we went out for our normal morning walk along the beach. Both ferrets wanted to get out of the bag early 'cos both had been at the diluted Lactose Free Milk and didn't have a wee before leaving home. So, as soon as Old Two Legs had cleared the car park, both ferrets were scrambling to get out of the bag!
Holly and wandered off ahead to see if there were any rabbits in the open but we were out of luck.
The ferrets, having got the taste of fresh air and damp grass and weasel sniffs, were quite happy to spend some time ferreting around in the undergrowth while Holly and I were watching the clouds descend on the river and start heading our way!
Before we knew it, the rain landed on us all, Holly and I were soaked down to our skin and the ferrets weren't any better. In fact Miss Snowflake even climbed up OTL's leg and got back in the Ferret Bag to keep out of the rain!
Mr Brambles preferred to run all the way back to the car park, stopping every so often to shake all the water off his coat!
Holly was the first back, with everyone close behind!
Back home, we all got a good rub down with our Doggy Towel, followed by another rub down after OTL had taken all his clothes off and changed into some new, dry, stuff!
After the ferrets had their run around the house and OTL had cleaned out their cage, it looked like the rain had stopped, so, Holly said that it would be a good idea to go up to The Show again!
OTL didn't need too much persuading and before we knew it, we were heading towards the Members Car Park!
We got there but had to pull over to the side to let a load of Fox Hounds go past and we both cheered as they passed. OTL thought we were barking and told us off!
|Where's the Fox!|
First stop was the Ferret Racing Tent to say hello and show off our new harnesses.
There was a young Two Legs having her first cuddle with a ferret, Holly said that She wasn't going to get cuddled by anyone 'cos it was getting too hot!
|First Cuddle with a Ferret!|
After a while we went off to see the other animals. There were some that looked like deer but OTL said they were Reindeer and Holly asked if they tasted like Bambi Burgers!
|and do you taste like..................?|
|....and they got strange sniffing poo as well!|
Well, the Two Legs was getting it all wrong and the Woofer was getting all confused as well. Holly and I were sitting there laughing our tails off and calling out 'It's behind You'!
|It's behind you, Bozo!|
We saw some young Two Legs trying to fly but Holly said they would never make it and she was right, they just kept on going around in circles!
|Go On, Flap Harder!|
We passed the 'Country Pursuits' tent and there was a woofer in the cage we hadn't said hello to, so Holly asked it what it was, as you do, and Holly thought he said he was a Lurker!
Holly asked what a Lurker did, and then laughed 'cos she suddenly realised that Lurkers Lurk!
The 'Lurker' got all upset and growled that he was a Lurcher and he chased little dogs to bite their tails off!
|Putting Holly Right!|
I must say, the Wild Boar tasted as good as the ones we had yesterday!
We headed back to watch the Ferret Racing and on the way we saw a woofer all dressed up for the rain. Well, both Holly and I just sat down with amazement, who on earth would dress a woofer in a coat like that, I mean, that woofer will have no 'Street Cred' for years!
|Don't blame me, I can't help their dress sense!|
Back at the Ferret Tent they were getting ready for the races, Roy was giving the ferrets a 'Pep Talk' and warning against cheating or foul play!
|OK you lot, I want good clean racing!|
|It's the first one fully out that wins!|
|I Won! I Won!, I Won!|
Stan has not had a very good start in life and arrived at the Harrietsham Ferret Rescue Centre with his tail missing and his back legs unable to support his back end. With a lot of care and looking after and the use of a Ferret Swimming Pool, he has now regained the use of his back legs and while nothing can be done about his missing tail, he is strong enough to join in the Ferret Races!
|Coming last has it's perks!|
|Stan gets his Prize!|
|Who is that on the Ferrets Head?|
|Bye bye Woofers! I really need more iron in my diet!|
|Well, it's cooling for me bits!|
That's why we are a little late in uploading today, sorry!
See you tomorrow!
Daisy, Holly, Miss Snowflake and Mr Brambles.
