Brambles tries to be a Woofer!

Hi Woofers!

Here we are again, Daisy, Holly, Miss Snowflake and Mr 'Butch' Brambles!

You know what? He has been at it again! That sneaky Brambles was caught raiding our food bowls again. This time he had both front paws in the bowl and tipping it up so he could get right inside!

You know, these are really tasty!
Holly stuck her head in, just to check he wasn't eating the chicken but he was too busy chomping away on the Chicken Biscuits!

I have decided that I'm going to be a Dog, especially if I can eat this stuff!
That was it, Mr Brambles has now become a Dog. He has always been a 'Woofer' 'cos he is one of our family but now he wants to become a Dog!

Holly and I had a bet on how long it would last. Holly said it would last until he got fed up with our Doggy Biscuit!

We headed out for our morning walk and when we got to the car park, Old Two Legs let us out then opened the ferret travel cage.

Mr Brambles stuck his head out, said 'Woof' and then asked it there were any cats around he could chase!

OK, where are the cats?
Brambles then told us that in future he was to be called 'Butch' 'cos that is what a serious dog should be called!

'OK', we said, come on Butch, let's find some sniffs!

Butch said that he would stay with Miss Snowflake to keep her safe in the Ferret Bag until we came across a good 'Doggy Sniff'!

Come on Butch, there's a really good sniff here!
'Butch' stuck his head out and asked OTL to put him down. Over he ran and had a sniff, then he fell over onto his back, 'Pheeew! Wot A Stink!' he said and rushed back to OTL to be put back in the bag!

Mmm! says Holly, 'I think we may have lost a Doggy!

Down on the beach 'Butch' was acting more like a ferret now, running backwards, cuddling Snowflake and asking OTL for a cuddle!

Miss Snowflake said that it was good to have her Ferret Mate back 'cos she didn't fancy snuggling up to a Dog for the rest of the day!

I'm staying a Ferret thank you!
Miss Holly saw a strange new thing on The Sea Wall, it was a load of rocks!

I bet it was a shower of Meteorites says Holly, she knows these things does Holly Dog!

Mmmm! Meteorites!
OTL said that he thinks that someone has dragged some of the rocks from the rock pools, up the side of the sea wall. Holly on the other paw says that they come from Outer Space!

Back home we all did our duties, us eating breakfast and OTL shoveling ferret poo!

He gets all the best jobs!

We had some stuff to deliver so Holly and I got to sit in the front seat of the Big Car!

On the way back we stopped off at The New Park! We haven't been there for a while and it was great to catch up on the 'Sniffs'!

There were a couple of Woofers who were a bit 'Yappy' made so much noise that Holly had to give them a 'Woofers Growl' which is Doggy Speak for 'Shut The Woof Up!'

That's better! We don't do loud!
Further on we came across a couple of young heifers who told us that they had been told that they mustn't talk to woofers!

We don't Do Dogs!
We met up with a load of woofers out there in the park and I was getting a bit tired of being chased around!

Quick, pick me up!
Back home we enjoyed a good snooze after finishing off the chicken and Holly asked if we should take some of our biscuits up to 'Butch' but in the end we decided it might look as though we were making fun of him!

Us? Make fun of 'Butch'? Never!

See you all tomorrow!


Daisy, Holly, Miss Snowflake and Mr 'Butch' Brambles!


  1. Mr Brambles is kidding himself if he thinks he wasn't always being a ferret. The word "ferret" comes from the Latin "furitus" meaning "little thief". And the zoological name for a ferret is "mustella putorius furo" which roughly means "mouse-eating stinking thief".

  2. Ohhhhh how could anyone call Butch Brambles a "mouse eating stinking thief" ........... how wrong those zoological people can be. I reckon Butch is a great name for little Brambles, he's really trying hard to be a woofer. I think he's got the right idea, ferret when the ferretone and Snowflake are around and woofer when there's biscuits and sniffs .......... although, strong sniffs might knock him over like today. I think he makes a lovely little woofer along with the 2 very lovely little woofers that already live in Godwin Towers and little Miss Snowflake, she might want to be a woofer one day. Glad you all enjoyed the beach and New Park, some woofers can be noisy and a bit silly. Those heifers are silly not to speak to nice well behaved woofers like you and Holly. Now about these big meteorite stones on the beach, my money is on Holly ........... I bet she sniffed outer space on them, she is a very clever woofer with a nose for these things. Poor OTL getting the poo cleaning job, still I bet it doesn't take him long to do it. Did you stick your tongues out at the people in the other cars? Lovely pictures again today, have a lovely evening girls and Butch. Love, licks and wags from little Arch xxxx

  3. That Butch it seems is now producing bucket loads of poo, not sure Daisy if you are telling porkies, I know he has his big fur coat on but he doesn't seem to have grown that much unless it is the Chicken Biscuits. The biscuits don't seem to have had that effect on you and Holly, well maybe on Holly a little bit! So many woofers out today and all chasing about, must be all the sunshine. Thank you peterc for telling us all about "ferret" doesn't seem a very kind description of Mr Brambles and Miss Snowflake, I wonder who came up with that must have been an Italian Zoo Keeper. Great pictures today, wonder where the rocks came from can't have been Mr Curlew perhaps the fishermen were to blame trying to stun the fish by throwing stones. It is getting warmer, I am going to the seaside tomorrow so pleased can I share your sunshine? xxxx
