OTL is Still Not Happy!

Hi Woofers!

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

OTL is still not in a 'Good Mood' 'cos the repair men sent by the insurance company didn't turn up yesterday. When OTL telephoned them this morning he was asked if he had cancelled the call out. As OTL said, 'I've got water pouring through my ceiling, why the 'ell would I cancel the call out!'

He then got a call from the people who arrange visits and promised that someone would be down by one thirty!

Feeling safe we went off for a walk with the ferrets!

OK! Let's Hunt Rabbit!
We got around the corner and there was not a rabbit is sight! Holly reckons they had been scarred off by another woofer who was just ahead of us, not that I could see any woofers ahead of us at all!

OTL got all 'artistic' about the sea and the sky and the tug that was sitting out on the water waiting for a job!

Just Hanging around for a job!
Mr brambles was down on the beach an scampering around digging holes all over the place.

Miss Snowflake just sat there and kept asking if she could get back into the bag!

Can I get back in yet, it's too cold out here?
 Holly and I got off the beach and were hanging around while the ferrets were having a sniff, when, around the corner came a couple of terrier type woofers!

'Hello' we said, 'Where did you come from?'

'We've been chasing Loads of Rabbits' the boss dog said. Now Holly and I knew who had chased the rabbits off!

We've been chasing rabbits!
Having solved the puzzle of the missing rabbits we headed off for home and our breakfast.

We got in and OTL went looking for the plumber.

 Yep, you guessed it, no plumbing engineer!

Not too disappointed, OTL went off to the office while Holly and I got stuck into our chicken!

About twelve fifteen, I gave OTL's seat a bash to show him I wanted to go out for another walk and as the plumber had an hour and a quarter before he was late, OTL agreed we could go!

The tide was out, so no swimming but we did see the trail from a Wormy Man!

We counted him out and we counted him back again!
 Holly and I were discussing what we could do to make OTL a bit happier, she suggested that she would train as a Heating and Plumbing Engineer, so she could help OTL if he got any more leaks.
I could be a Plumber!
 I thought that was a good idea, then I had a thought, I could collect the insurance money!

Yeah! OTL loves keeping money!
Back home we went and you know what we found?

Nothing, no phone calls, no plumber!

Back on the phone to the people who are getting the plumber to us. Seems like he got held up at the last job!

Five past three, OTL gets a call from the plumber man, he is on his way!

OTL is a little happier!

After that it was all downhill!

The plumber and OTL got to work, the floor was taken up and the ceiling fell down!

It looks like it has been slowly leaking for some time 'cos the ceiling was rotten black and we think it was only the paint holding it all together!

It has been, 'One of those days!'

See you tomorrow!


Daisy, Holly, Miss Snowflake and Mr Brambles.


  1. I'm so sorry to hear about the leak and the damage it's done and that the plumber has taken so long to come out. It's a good job OTL and TM have you, Holly, Snowflake and Mr Brambles to cheer them up. Lovely pictures today. I think you and Holly are very good girls offering to take insurance money and become a plumber. Glad to see that even in the midst of such rotten goings on you still got your chicken dinner. What a cheek, those other dogs chasing your rabbits away ........... tsk some dogs have no idea of territory. Hope you all have a better evening and happy anniversary to TM and OTL, I bet there will be a few muggings tonight. Hope tomorrow is a better day, love, licks and wags from little Arch xxxx

  2. Hello again on this not very happy day, good things were your lovely walks, chicken, snoozes, OTL/TM's anniversary and the company of each other. Bad things were no rabbits, a woofer that chased them away and a horrible leak. Even OTL's pictures were black, white and grey so no pretty flowers to feast on today. I hope by tomorrow you will have had some good news and we will be back in colour. Bless you all. xxxxxx
