A Little Splash of Fun!

Hi Woofers!

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

It has been a bit of a damp day here in North Kent. It started this morning when Old Two Legs was putting us in the car ready to go on our morning walk. he had his 'Spring Jacket' on which is not water proof, wind proof but not water proof. So, what happened as he was settling us all down? Yep! It started to rain!

So, while we were waiting in the car, he rushed back indoors and changed his coat for a water proof one and to get his hat!

Off we went with our claws crossed that the rain would stop when we got to the beach and you know what?

It didn't!

Mind you it didn't get any worse so we all ran off looking for some sand to roll in!

OTL has taken his cameras down to the mender to get the CCD cleaned. It's the bit that the light hits and gets transformed into a picture in the camera. Changing the lens allows very small bits of dust to stick on the picture and as OTL says, 'There is only so much you can do with Photoshop'!

Well, that means that we don't have a camera for our use for two or three days!

OTL was thinking of taking the video camera but reckons that two woofers, two ferrets and a video camera was just too much!

April and May had some fun digging trenches while Holly and I went off in search of smelly sniffs!

Now, I have a funny to tell you all. Yesterday Holly and I got presented with a doggy biscuit in the shape of a bone. We do love these and when we bite into them they explode in a load of crumbs!

Now, our favourite place to eat them is on OTL's bed, well sort of IN as well as on top. In fact, I love to sit on his pillow and eat them and then hide it under the duvet so I can come back to it later.

OTL and The Missus don't like Holly and me doing things like this 'cos the crumbs sort of get pushed down under the duvet and spread out!

OTL gets into bed and says that it is like getting into a bed made of sand paper!

Out he gets turns on the light and spends the next half an hour grumbling at us while he and TM brush all the crumbs out of the bed!

You know what? They don't even save the crumbs so Holly and I can have a nibble before going to sleep!

We think it is going to be fun when the ferrets find the duvet and start stashing all the food they have pinched from our bowls and their food bowls and all the stuff they pinch from OTL's tool box as well!

Well, that's all for today, we are off to see what we can mug off OTL!

See you tomorrow!

  1. Evening little maties down by the damp seaside. It's been very damp here today, I managed to miss the rain this morning and hopefully will miss the rain when I go on my walk soon. I've been down to the vets to be weighed, still loosing, and I had a blood test while I was there. I'd much rather be digging trenches on the beach and rolling in smelly sniffs. Shame there are no pictures but hopefully OTL's camera will soon be back, good as new and taking pictures of you all having fun. I can't believe that Mrs TM and OTL don't save the crumbs for you and Holly to snack on at bed time. I wonder if one of the ferrets might decide it's a nice snuggly place to have a nap and then surprise them. Happy muggings tonight and have a good evening, I'm about to go for my walk so paws crossed the rain holds off. Love, licks, wags and sniffs from little Arch and Mr Nipper xxxxxxxx

  2. I thought OTL was a reliable weather forecaster, my opinion of him has hit the rocks. Don't tell them but it cheered me up no end to read about the sandpaper bed, I can just picture the scene with you and Holly Good Shoes pretending the ferrets pinched your biscuit in the first place. Having seen the food behind the cupboard I can well imagine the amount they could hind away in a day, I suppose the copper wire and wire cutters would be the worst but at least they would be easier to clear away. Don't tell me that the camera is suffering from biscuit crumbs, OTL must get himself one of those covers that you go into with the camera to change lenses, second thoughts he would probably remember to take it and leave the lens or even the camera at home. xxxxxx
