Happy New Year!

Yo Woofers!

A Very Happy New Year to you all from Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss April, Fred & Wilma!

Last night there was some early evening Whizz Bangs and Holly got a bit shaky but after we went to bed, she cuddled up to Old Two Legs and soon fell asleep. What she didn't hear was the 'Official' Whizz Bangs that went off at midnight! I did but I soon fell asleep again!

This morning we were out a bit earlier 'cos OTL got a good sleep last night and we were very glad he did 'cos we saw a spectacular sun rise today, the first day of the New Year!

Isle of Grain from Allhallows, complete with ground mist.
Then, as we got nearer he stopped the car again and took this one.

Looking towards the Power Station
It was a bit chilly 'cos OTL had to scrape ice off the windscreen first thing and the electronic thermometer in the car said it was minus two degrees!

Down on the beach both ferrets said it was just too cold and they even convinced OTL to carry them up to the grass path!

Holly was playing the Tart again 'cos she met up with Bert on the Sea Wall. Bert is not allowed off the lead so Holly tarts about teasing him something rotten!

Holly playing the New Year Tart!
On the grass path both ferrets were interested in the frost on the plants and the grass, then Miss April said that it was 'All very interesting but it makes your paws cold!' She managed to blag a ride on OTL's arm for a while but had to walk back to the car from the Bench on the Hill.

OK, now my paws are cold!
Back home to some chicken and a snooze before we wake Fred & Wilma up for their run on the beach!

The wind was getting up and indeed it was beginning to feel too cold for walking, well, that's what Freddy said but OTL still insisted he climb all the way up the grass path to the top!

Poor Freddy, he kept on asking for his 'Climbing Gear' to help him get to the top!

Climbing Gear Please, you know, ropes, ice axe and crampons!
OTL let him climb all the way up then gave him a carry until we got to the Bench on the Hill where Freddy could waddle down the hill to the car park.

That was going well until a couple of Two Legs stopped OTL and wanted to talk about ferrets, starting off with 'Will they bite me'!

You would have thought that by now that they would have got the message!

Ferrets only bite when they are eating, the rest of the time it is signal nips!


Don't do that, I don't like it, nip!

You made me jump, nip!

That hurt, nip!

This is fun, playful nip!

Come on play with me, playful nip'

Come on Woofer, get out of my way, nip!

It's all good fun really and let's face it, you don't have ferrets and expect never to get a nip!

It's an occasional nip that lets you know they care for you!

See you tomorrow!


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


  1. Sorry to hear the whizz bangs upset Holly last night, we had them here all evening, they are a pest. Good to hear you all got a good sleep, does that mean that OTL isn't coughing as much? Hope so. Lovely pictures today, that sunrise looks very nice. It was a tad cold on the tootsies this morning wasn't it. I don't blame Miss April for wanting a carry today. Good old Fred, glad to see he's still trying to think of excuses not to go walking on the cold ground. That Holly is such a tart, not a lady like you Daisy. Some TL's do ask some daft questions. Nipper has slept all day today, I think the whizz bangs kept him awake, he also wanted to get out and chew the bozos who were letting them off. My mum said he had to be a good boy or the policeman might come and take him off to prison. Nipper reckons that's no problem, he says he can chew thru any bars. Anyways, it's time for Nipper and me to do a patrol of the garden. Happy New year to you all and have a lovely evening, love, licks, wags, sniffs, nips and a few chews from little Arch and Mr Nipper xxxxxxxxx

  2. What a glorious sunrise to start the new year. We had a few whizz bangs here but we are used to things like that because we have fighter jets practicing in the skies in the summer and they make an awful racket. Holly is such a floozy and that Fred is really trying it on with OTL even if it was chilly. Thank you for the lesson on ferret nipping. I'll try to remember it if I meet any around here. We do have a lot of weasels and stoats but I don't think I want to test it out on them. Hope you get some muggings tonight. My mum gave us carrot sticks last night...I think she may have been sneakily reading your blog. I did enjoy the carrot but I don't want to eat them all the time. Have a good day tomorrow. Love, wags, woofs and licks from Izzy xxxxxxxx

  3. Glad OTL remembered his camera this morning, so worth it. Can he remember to take it every day? Let's see, how long will it be! We had a super duper whizz bang evening, you would not have liked it but we thought it fantastic and the best we have ever seen. Have a happy day tomorrow, be good, how is Holly's diet doing? xxxxxx
