A Grey Day in Autumn!

Hello Woofers!

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

I don't know about you but we can definitely feel a chill in the air, a sure sign that Autumn has arrived! The leaves are all falling off the trees and birds we saw all summer have headed south for the Winter!

We spotted some Brent Geese on the mud a week or two ago and they are a sure sign the seasons are changing!

The Dragonfly's have all disappeared and we haven't seen a Bumble Bee for two weeks!

Miss Snowflake reckons that ferrets should really hibernate like a Hedgehog but the thought of snoozing in damp leaves has put her off, instead she prefers a warm blanket in Snowy Heights!

Just like normal!

We were up late this morning 'cos Old Two Legs overslept a bit and I must admit, so did Holly and I!

The ferrets were up at sunrise and were waiting for OTL to bring them their morning bowl of Lactose Free Milk!

Out on the beach, Miss Snowflake had a wander around the sea weed again and found herself on top of a rock, surrounded by water, again!

Err! I think I'm in trouble again!
 It took Mr Brambles to coax her off the rock without falling into the water!

Holly and I got fed up with waiting and had a game on the beach. I dug a hole and Holly hunted around for a tree to plant!

Trouble was, we couldn't agree on how to plant it, and so, we ended up in a fight, trying to get the tree from each other and it broke in half!

Come on, hurry up it's roots are getting cold!
By then the ferrets were heading towards the grass for their morning wash and we followed them up the steps.

Come along Dear, almost there!
It's fun watching them go swimming in the grass and OTL doesn't even tell them off! Not like when we do it! When we do it OTL calls it 'Rolling in Something Mucky'!

Once we got onto the top path, we heard 'Helloooo Girlie's!'

It was Barney out for his morning walk. When he got to us he said Hello to Mr Brambles and Miss Snowflake as well, then headed back to find his ball!

Hellooo Girlie's and Mr Brambles!
Then it was back home to a nice warm bed and a bowl of Lambs Heart followed by a gentle snooze on OTL's bed!

Lunchtime it was back to the beach again 'cos OTL said it would be too muddy down The Forest, he is such a spoilsport!

Still, we had some fun running along the beach and up and down the steps, well, it keeps us fit!

Come on, OTL's right behind us!
 OTL was puffing and blowing trying to keep up with us, great fun!

Keep going, we're gaining on him!
When we got around the corner the wind really picked up and it was so strong it blew OTL's hat off, twice!

While we were galloping along The Sea Wall, he had to run back to get his hat before it blew into the sea!

Holly said he needs an elastic band over his hat and then under his chin to keep it on!

Looks like it could be rain tomorrow, so it will be rain coats and a short walk!

See you tomorrow!


Daisy, Holly, Miss Snowflake and Mr Brambles.


  1. What a lovely day, now about OTL's hat, go have a word with TM, she's sure to have some spare ribbon in her crafty stash that he could tie round his hat to keep it on his head. Miss Snowflake and Mr Brambles look very handsome with their autumn fur. Fancy you two breaking the tree in half, still I suppose you now have 2 trees to plant, maybe tomorrow if you can dig a hole each. Glad to hear you got decent scoff before your snooze today. Have a lovely peaceful evening with maybe some snackettes. Love, licks and wags from little Arch xxxx

  2. Lambs heart, just the ticket, that's real food. I can't help laughing (grinning) at the thought of OTL with a hat tied on with ribbon but it must be blue to match his eyes, we don't want pink or yellow, no we don't! That's a novel idea, swimming in grass, maybe you could get Holly to try it then she might upgrade to water. Lovely lots of pictures, Miss Snowflake and dear old Barney are favourites for today. xxxx
