Ferret fun and a trip to The Vet for Holly Dog!

Hi Woofers!

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss April, Fred & Wilma again!

It has been another mild day today, I mean, It's December, and there should be storms and snow six feet deep and rain that strips paint off the car and wind that blows all the leaves into next doors garden!

Instead, what have we got?

A Super Sunny Morning!
Miss May took full advantage and played a game of 'Bulldozers' again and this time she used some of the sea weed that comes ashore this time of the year!

Pile It UP!
On the way down to the beach in the car, Holly was sitting on Old Two Legs lap and he was stroking her around her neck and he felt a squidgy lump,just under her collar. So when we got back home he was straight onto the vet for an appointment and got one in half an hour!

They had a fiddle with it, took a Biopsy and put it on a glass slide and because they couldn't identify all of the cells, suggested that it be sent to a Pathologist for further examination. 

At a cost! OTL says he should have been a Vet or a Pathologist!

So, we expect some results back next week. The lump is 'in the skin', so that is a good thing, according to the vet.

The vet did say that Holly was 'Over Weight and was at least two kilogrammes heaver than she should be and she has got to go on a diet and loose some fat!

Oh dear, no more nibbles, no more shortbread and no more mugging, just scoff and carrots!

Lunchtime we took Fred & Wilma down to the beach. OTL put them down on the grass before we got to the beach and poor old Fred just couldn't believe that there was so much space in the world, he says that he can almost see forever!

There is just so much space!
 Down on the beach, just like Miss May, Wilma had a great game of 'Bulldozers' with the sand and the sea weed! 

That's it, Pile it high!
Then she chased OTL along the beach trying to get a lift!

Here comes a 'High Speed Ferret'
Fred was having fun as well, he found the plant on the beach and reckons it is just right for an 'Exfoliate' and spent a good five minutes rolling around in it!

This is Soooooooo Gooood it gets all the dry bits off!
Of course, The Missus was wandering about on the beach trying to look interested but as she is not into playing Bulldozers or rolling in the plants or sniffing out the Slimy Things in the sea weed, we left her to play on 'FaceAche' on her mobile phone!

Just Logging on via Southend on Sea!
We have just heard that May and Aprils Ferret Bag is on it's way and TM says she is getting a bag for Fred and Wilma but it is going to be about 50% bigger 'cos Fred is a 'Big Boy'!

So, off we go now to watch a bit of TV and woof at the dogs in the Doggy Adverts, especially the one of a Westie who gets to drive a chair on wheels and gets 'Tasty' Doggy Scoff, unlike us wot have to make do with Horrid Doggy scoff and Raw Carrots!

Yes, I am on a diet as well as Holly, not that I need to loose weight, it's just that I'm supporting Holly!

I hope she loses weight soon 'cos I think I may starve if she takes too long!

See you tomorrow!


Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss April, Fred & Wilma.


  1. Glad to hear you had some good weather down there, it was very chilly here, I had to wear my fleece when I went out. Now I don't like the word diet....... it's not a nice word ........ I hope the vet weighed a bit of what he took off Holly, cos that must count in her weight loss plan. These vets are always going on about weight, I just give them a big lick, then they change the subject. I like me wimmin to have a bit of meat on em. Holly was very brave to go to the vets, I presume you stayed home to guard the house Daisy. I hope the results come back as just a bit of fatty cyst or some other thing that won't require more treatment. Poor OTL's wallet must be skinny at the moment. Aren't you a good girl giving Holly chops moral support on her diet, I'm on one as well at the moment, I told the vet it was my winter covering to protect me from the cold weather. I have to go back for a check up next Thursday and no doubt they'll be putting me on the scales before anything else. Tell your Mrs TM that doggie scoff is full of fat ................... that she help to make sure she cooks you decent scoff. Them ferrets do like playing bulldozers. I'm glad Fred likes the great out doors, it must look quite big to a little chap, even if he is a big little chap. Glad to hear the chauffer wasn't issuing too many orders this afternoon. How is OTL's eyes doing? Well I would say I hope the muggings are good but maybe you'll get a bit of apple or carrot when OTL has got his shortbread out tonight. Have a lovely cosy evening, love, licks, wags and sniffs to you all, little (fat boy) Arch xxxxxxxx

  2. The weather has been really mild and I much prefer it to how you tell me December should be, your typical December weather goes a bit over the top, a bit like Hollys' weight. I have read somewhere that fillet steak is very slimming, chicken and lambs heart are quite good but perhaps you should leave out the little bit of gravy but other than that some carrots, a little ruffage and teeth cleaning chews should be all you both need until after Christmas. Holly was brave, it's usually her other end that needs attention and let's hope the results come back as good and soon.
    Meanwhile the ferrets are having a ball and loving all these wide open spaces, if the weather was like you say it should be then they would have to stay at home, you and Holly would be out there in your coats moaning about how cold it was. I know the sort of weather I like, somewhere warm, not too warm, I don't do heat, just somewhere cosy where I don't need bed socks. Next time I go away I may leave my bed socks at home! Christmas presents are sort then for Fred and Wilma, the "girls" have their new bag, I wonder if you and Holly are going to get carrying bags or this I-Paws that I have suggested, Amazon do them in pink and instead of an apple logo they have a nice little Paw-print! Ian was here in advance of his birthday which is today so that is why I am late on parade, poached eggs on toast for a birthday breakfast before he goes home. Be good, try for the steak, xxxxxx
