Windy or Wot!

Hi Woofers!

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss April, Miss Wendy and Freddy de Ferret all here to see you again!

Now, I'm not sure if it happened where you live but down here the wind has been blowing with some force today! OK, I know it's not as bad as South Wales or Cornwall but to us here in the South East, it was just too windy!

In fact, it was so windy that one of the fence panels blew down and Missy, the Woofer next door, came into our garden for a sniff while we were  having our breakfast!

Down on the beach we saw that the storm was blowing the clouds away, so, if you look at the photo, it looks like a sunny day. Trubble is, Old Two Legs can't photograph the wind!

It is windy, Honest!
With all this wind going on, it was a bit chilly, so we got to wear our 'Flying Coats' which look like they are fleece lined, which they are not, well not real sheep fleece, more a polyester stuff!

Still, it keeps the wind out!

Flying Officer Daisy coming into land!
 Down on the beach Miss April stayed in the bag and refused to come out which we think was a sensible thing to do! May had fun doing the sniffs but like us, didn't hang about too long !

It's too cold for hole digging today!
Mind you, when we got back to the car park, May and April were having a jog along the last bit. Holly spotted a couple of rabbits in the middle of the grass patch and of course off we went!

By the time we got to where they were, they had gone!

I reckon it was Holly doing too much Woofing that scared them off!

Your fault for woofing too loud!
Mind you, it was good to get back home and into a nice warm house!

Lunchtime it was raining and OTL had decided that it was too wet to take the camera out but not wet enough to prevent us woofers from having a run!

Not that we agreed with him, I mean, any wet drips of rain on your nose can put any woofer off sniffing!

Love the idea of nicking a Cream Egg and eating it whole including the wrapper. Just think of what OTL would say the next time we had a poo!

April has now lost almost all of the excess fluid and is almost back to her normal slim self. She still has a coughing spell but nowhere near as often as she used to have them. In fact OTL had to adjust her harness 'cos it was getting a bit loose around the neck!

She is having a great time rampaging around the house and playing games with OTL, like trying to run up his trouser leg when he is cleaning the cage out!

Sneaky or wot?

Sorry about no video today, blame OTL, he is the one with the camera!

OTL has been looking on the Internetty Wotsit Thingy and has spotted a forecast of some Aurora Thursday and Friday next week but this will be visible, (clouds permitting) on Orkney!

It is the strangest things that make him excited nowadays, I put it down to age and too much shortbread!

See you all tomorrow!


Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss April, Miss Wendy and Freddy de Ferret.


  1. Evening all, well Daisy, I thought I was going to get blown from my garden to yours today. I hear they've shut that big bridge down near you because of the wind, I hope they're not suggesting people swim across to your way. I've got one of them flying jackets like yours, I had it on when I went for my walk, that lining helps stops the wind getting down the neck bit. I really don't blame Miss April for staying in the bag, in fact, I think I would have preferred going out in a bag today. My mum wasn't too happy, she had to do 3 paper rounds this morning, she reckons she nearly got blown away. Good news about Miss April and the excess fluid, hope her cough improves. Did Freddy and Miss Wendy go out today? I bet OTL felt like he was hanging on to a pair of balloons. Maybe those rabbits got blown away. I think OTL would say you've done a ready wrapped poo if you ate a crème egg with the wrapper still on. I'm going for a cosy snooze now, I don't like the noise this wind makes so I'll probably stick close to my mum for the rest of the evening. Take care down there and have a snuggly evening all. Love, licks, wags, and sniffs from little Arch and Mr Nipper xxxxxxxx

  2. I liked all the photos today, pity OTL can't take pictures of the wind, he could film a paper bag being blown away though. There a Gauntlet laid down, a little challenged to show the wind! It has been a long time since you last mentioned rabbits, I thought they had all gone to Essex, the Sheppey Bridge was also closed but I think the old bridge was alright otherwise there would have been a lot of people stranded, no mention of that on the news! I don't blame your little friends for preferring the bag rather than the ground. You look very smart in your warm coats and as Archie says it keeps the draft away from the neck, hope the fence can be put back or was a post broken, terrible on the TV with roofs gone, take care and make sure the Sherlock Holmes hat is worn with the ears tied down over OTL's delicate ears. Happy snugly muggings. xxxxxx
