Another wet Day!

Hi Woofers,

It's us again, Daisy, Holly, Miss Snowflake and Mr Brambles.

Last night it was another of those 'Whizz Bang' nights when the local Bozo's were playing with their fireworks and of course, the louder the noise the more they enjoy it, but not for Holly. She hates them and we reckon she must have had a bad experience when she was a little puppy 'cos she hears a Whizz Bang, she woofs at it and then spends the rest of the night cuddled up in Old Two Legs arms shivering with fright!

I wish they would take all their Whizz Bangs and let them off in one place, (miles away), on one night, (like 5th Nov?) and make it illegal to let them off on the streets or in a public place!

Can't see that happening but I wonder how many of the Bozo's know how much distress these Whizz Bangs cause us!

And I even include Pussy Cats in that as well!

Tonight it is going to be more cuddles and strokes for Holly!

Today it has been 'Interesting' for us. Well, you see our normal parking place has been blocked off since the beginning of this week, 'Resurfacing the road' is the excuse and OTL has been having trouble giving us our normal walk. We have tried Tip Toeing through the Bull Poo, OK but not to be repeated. We've tried galloping around the field behind our house, OK but boring. Today OTL went back to our normal place and parked in one of the side streets and then guided us to the Sea Wall by a strange new path.

The ferrets were a bit unsure until we got to the normal path. Holly and I were a bit put out 'cos we couldn't spend more time investigating the new sniffs on this new bit of path.

Not to worry though, we got to our normal path and we all settled down to our normal sniffing and weeing and pooing and ferreting about!

We were even visited by Fred the Black Headed Gull who we haven't heard from all summer. He said he had been up stream a bit and enjoying time with his family on the big rubbish tip on the Essex side of the Thames!

Wotcha Girlie's!
Then he told us about the Mary Celeste that had been spotted out to sea by some of his mates. We said we would keep an eye open, just in case it passed close by.

Well, blow me down, didn't the mist clear a little bit and what did we see? There, coming out of the morning mist was the Mary Celeste sailing along, against the wind and with no sails up!

Scary or wot!

Mary Celeste Again!
 Holly said it was getting just too much for her, Whizz Bangs and now Ghost Ships!

The ferrets had a game on the beach and it started to rain, so we all headed back towards the car. Miss Snowflake was complaining that the steps had grown a bit or she has shrunk in the rain the other day!

This is getting too difficult!
Back home it was Lambs Heart for breakfast, which I shovelled down as quickly as possible but Holly said she had a Grumbly Tum and decided to leave it for later. Then she curled up under a fleece and spent the morning snoozing.

Lunchtime we were out again, but not for too long, we left home and the rain wasn't falling, we get to the parking place we used this morning and the rain was pouring down! OTL got our rain coats out and put them on us. Then, leaving his camera in the car we headed off down the path again. Holly wasn't too impressed with the rain and after we had 'Done our Business' we both headed back to the car, with OTL running up behind!

That was it, back home to a second rub down with our towel and back to the fleece and our cushions for an afternoon snooze.

Holly is still looking a bit glum but the thought of lots of rain falling down will possibly keep the Whizz Bangs indoors has cheered her up a little!

See you all tomorrow!


Daisy, Holly, Miss Snowflake and Mr Brambles.


  1. Daisy, I so agree with you about the whizz bangs, I hate them going off night after night before and after bonfire night and I think they should be banned forever. Poor Holly, I hope that the cuddles help her feel a bit better, maybe it's all the stress of the whizz bangs that's upsetting her little tum. Glad to hear that TM has given you decent scoff today, she got a telling off on facebook by your fans. Glad you didn't have to stroll thru bull poo and managed to find a way to the beach this morning. Wow a ghost ship now that's a turn up for the books. Loved the piccies from this morning, Snowflake may have shrunk it all the rain that we've had. Hope you get some decent muggings later and I hope the rain keeps the whizz bangs away so you can have a peaceful evening. Love, licks and wags from little (I had 2 dinners tonight) Arch xxxx

  2. You are right about those whizz bang things although it has been quiet here, Michael got his camera and tripod out ready to capture all the bright lights and then put it away again when nothing happened, looks like we should have been over your way. The TV reporter was down by the river at Rochester talking about the elections and the sky was dark behind not a whizz bang in sight.
    When your new path is finished it will be fantastic to go sniffing all the new sniffs but until then you are going to have to make do with what you have. Lovely ox heart and again Holly is upset, hopefully it is just all the noises that have upset her and nothing serious, poor little love. x The rain came down again, it is getting normal now, we have been spoilt but I hope it is brighter tomorrow for you to go exploring and OTL to take some pictures. xxxx
