Archie Babe is here!

Hi Woofers!

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

We were up good and early today 'cos we had to get everything sorted and tidied up before Archie arrived. We got down to the beach early and made sure the ferrets didn't spent too much time larking about on the beach!

The tide was right in and to be honest, I could have fancied a swim! As it was, I saw a balloon that had got tangled up in the sea weed so, just for a laugh, I tried to kick it back into the waves!

Up and Under!
Miss Snowflake was put out, like, there was no rocks for her to hid behind and have a wee! She backed up to the waters edge but ended up with a wave creeping a little further up the beach, and her leg, than she had planned!

That feels like a big wee!

On the way back to the car she was telling me that ferrets come from the same family as otters and although she doesn't mind getting wet, she would rather stay dry!

You know, I have Otter DNA in me!
We got back to the hall and Archie was waiting for us, so, back to the beach again for some games and to check out all the sniffs!

So many sniffs!
By the time we got back to the beach, the tide had gone out leaving some soggy bits that Archie said they never get back where he lives!
We get nothing like this where I live!
OTL got the ball out and Holly and I had a game of 'Chase the Ball' while Archie investigated the sea shore. OTL let him off the lead while we were on the beach, and he was very good and came when OTL called!

Stay there this time!
I dug a big hole and buried the ball in it for later!

We headed back home and had a super breakfast with Archie and afterwards we all crashed out for a snooze before our lunchtime walk.

As Archie was a guest, we allowed him to sit on OTL's lap for his snooze, providing he didn't get too comfortable!

Lunchtime came and we were off again to the beach. There were loads of Two Legs sitting around eating their lunch and we all tried a bit of mugging but OTL wouldn't let us stay hanging about 'cos he said it was rude to try to pinch a Mini TL's dinner!

Look! The little one has a Chicken Wrap!
We said hello to some of the lads and were soon back on the beach again.

Yo! My name is Richard!

I soon had the ball dug up and was having a great time. Archie got let off the lead again and this time there was loads of sea weed to investigate!

Look! I found it again!
Then he found a sniff that was calling out to be rolled in!

It's calling to me!.....It's Calling To Me!
Then after that he decided to try walking on the mud, which wasn't the best idea 'cos he sunk in nearly up to his tummy!

Oooooo! This is Quaggy, I Love It!

OTL wasn't too happy about that 'cos that means the car will get muddy!

Archie did offer to get it off by having another roll, but OTL said he had other plans!

Can I take it home to show my mates?
When we got home, OTL got out the hose pipe and gave Archie a good slosh to get rid of the mud which Archie wanted to take home with him!

Never mind, maybe next time!

We all had a little rest when we got back and soon it was time for Archie Babe to head back to his home.

We said goodbye and waved our paws as he headed down the road towards home.

It's been great having him here today but now we are looking forward to a bit of mugging tonight.

OTL says he may get his shortbread out!

Tomorrow we are off to the Ferret place to do some introductions!

Keep your claws crossed!

See you tomorrow!


Daisy, Holly, Miss Snowflake and Mr Brambles.         


  1. What a busy day you had. Did you manage to get the balloon back in the sea? Poor Miss Snowflake, I bet she got a shock when the wave caught up with her. Weren't you clever to find a safe spot to leave your ball, then to find it again, wow. Hmmm I'll be having words with little Arch about all that mud, I'm glad he didn't bring it home, well done OTL for getting him clean again. Daisy, didn't you tell him that he's a dirty little monkey? Shame none of those TL's felt sorry for the starving woofers on the beach. I hope the lads weren't too horrified at the state of Arch. Arch says he had a lovely day and was well impressed by the sniffs, he said the mud bath was good for his skin and it cooled him down. He did enjoy his snooze with OTL and was very impressed with the way you and Holly shared your scoff with him. He says he's looking forward to coming down again. Enjoy any shortbread muggings you get. Thank you all for giving little Arch a lovely day. He's going for a pre bed snooze. Love to all. Little Arch xxxx p.s. hope all goes well at the ferret place tomorrow. xxxxx

  2. Oh it is busy, busy where you were, I laughed my head off when I saw the picture of a muddy Archie, shame that he couldn't have gone home with it to show his mates what seaside mud looks like. I do think OTL could have made him up a doggy bag of mud to enjoy later, don't tell his mum of my idea because I don't think she would agree. So glad the sea was back from its holiday, maybe you will get a chance of a nice swim soon, you lead such idealic lives especially when the sun shines and I hope all has gone well at the ferret centre, can't wait to see. xxxx and still practising xxxxxx

  3. Oh u r a good girl for sharing sniffs etc with Archiebabe. I was down yr way at the TM's masterclass yesterday & what a FAB day it was too. The TM is a genius & lots of fun.

    Can u ask OTL if he can take some pictures of the 2 different views either side of the road near St Mary's Hoo? I'm fascinated by the views out across the water but couldn't stop. Plus he's a much better photographer than I am!

    Hope all went well with the ferrets today.

    Happy muggings later.
    Lots of pats from Sarn xxx
