We're Famous!

Hi Woofers!

Us again, Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss April, Miss Wendy and Freddy de Ferret!

I don't know what it's been like your end of the world but down here in North Kent it has been super sun shine all day long!

This morning we were down the beach, digging holes in the sand, as usual, when we heard a big Bang out to sea!

Then it went bang again and again and again!

The ferrets didn't know where it was coming from and to be honest, neither did Holly and neither did I!

April got a bit worried and suggested she got back into the ferret bag!

I think I should hide!
 Holly and I stood very still and sniffed to see if there was any dangerous woofers heading our way!

I see no woofers1
 It was Old Two Legs who explained what the Bangs were. It seems that over in Essex, there is a gunnery test site and they test guns and stuff by making them go Bang!

We left them to it and headed off home 'cos we knew there was some Lambs Heart waiting and we were getting hungry!

After a snooze Holly and I decided that we should go out again before Wendy had to go to the vets.

Off we went with Freddy and we met loads of woofers we knew and of course there were loads of Two Legs who wanted to give Freddy a stroke and then take a picture of him cuddled up in t OTL's arms!

Down on the sand Freddy got into digging a hole then he headed off to sniff the sea weed!

OK, now I'm going Hunting!
 He was having a great time running over the sea weed and making it go 'Pop' when he stuck his claws into the bubbly bits!

They're going pop all the time!
 There were no more Bangs coming across the sea so we all felt safe!

Up the top of the grass path, Freddy said there was a strange sniff coming in from the sea. It turned out to be a Wormy Man digging close to the shore and disturbing some oily mud stuff!

Just wot is that sniff?
 Back in the car park we met up with Auntie June who was down with her husband and grandson for a walk along the Sea Wall as far as the old Power Station.

Freddy did his 'Poor Me' thing and got a cuddle from June but after a couple of sniffs he decided there was no food to be had!

No Food, No Cuddles!
 Junes grandson, Alex, asked for a cuddle and Freddy said OK, providing there was some nibbles. It turns out Alex had eaten all his sarnies!

So, that was it, poor Freddy didn't get and nibbles!

You know he's getting more like Holly Dog every day!

I've been conned, no sarnies here either!
 That was it, off we went back home to fetch Wendy 'cos she had an appointment with the vet to get her operation checked.

Off she went with OTL and after some poking about she was declared as 'fit and well' and she can go out for a run with us tomorrow and we can stop giving her the medicine to stop her tummy from getting sore!

So, we are all back to normal again and other than Aprils medicines, we are all 100% fit and well!

OTL says that he is going to give the ferrets ears a clean to get rid of some ear wax and then dust their ears with some stuff to get rid of ear mites which they could pick up when they go out for their walk with us.

So, that's it for today, loads of sun shine and Spring is really here!

See you all tomorrow!


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


  1. Evening maties down by the seaside where there was lots of bangs today. Now Daisy, of course you're famous, all of you's are famous even OTL and Mrs TM are famous. I might even be famous one day .......... but not just yet. It has been a nice day today, so glad you had some fun on the beach even if there was lots of bangs and stuff. If I was Miss April I certainly would have got back in the bag double quick, I think if I'd been you and Holly I would have tried to get in the bag as well. Can't they put them silencer things on their guns? It rather spoils the concentration when you're looking for decent sniffs when a big bang goes off. I was just thinking how Freddy is getting more like Holly chops, my mum thinks I'm getting more like Freddy. My mum took me for my check up this morning, she put me on the scales, well, I'm not saying anything other than my mum said the scales said ouch! My mum made me walk to town today, she gave me a little carrot snack when we got there and do you know wot? She made me walk all the way home again as well. Then this afternoon when I made a polite enquiry about whether tiffin was ready, she made me go for another long walk ......... I don't know how I found the energy, I was starving and wasting away to an elephant. Then, when we got home she made me play football with her in the garden, all I wanted was some scoff and a snooze. This is cruelty Daisy, pure, evil cruelty! I did consider asking if I could come and live with you. I'm glad to hear you got some decent scoff today, my mouth is watering at the thought. I met up with a lot of my woofer mates today, they are all feeling very sorry for me when I tell them of the evil treatment I'm getting at home. Good on Freddy for insisting no treat, no cuddle. I'm very pleased to hear that all is well with Miss Wendy, I bet she'll enjoy getting out tomorrow and having a dig on the beach. I hope you all have a lovely evening, I must go and have a pre bedtime snooze now, my little legs have shrunk. Love, licks, wags, sniffs and yawns from little Arch and Mr Nipper xxxxxxxx

  2. Hello there little ones by the sea, glad the bangs were not threatening you and Lambs Heart sounds good, lots of ferret cuddles today but no doggie cuddles or did I miss something. Nice to be warm, Michael has a nasty cold and feeling sorry for himself, it doesn't make his head very good so I am hoping that it goes away quickly. We had a lovely long Easter away in Winnie Two Shoes, sometimes wet and sometimes windy, sometimes very windy but we had fun and then this cold comes along and strikes. xxxxxx

  3. We're here! Had lots of licks and wags from Rizzo so think she is very pleased to see us.
    Those bangs over the sea sound very scary. Very pleased that Wendy is fit and healed. She'll enjoy her walks again and bulldozing on the beach. Freddy seems to get lots of two legged cuddles. It's a good way to get out of walking.
    We hope to get to your beach on Tuesday because Rizzo's mum is off work and can come too and bring Rizzo.
    Poor Archie and his worn out legs and only carrot sticks as a treat. You need to keep one paw on the floor when you get weighed next time.
    Love, licks, wags and woofs from Izzy and Hamish xx xx xx xx
