Wet, Windy and Not Summery!

Hi Woofers!

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

Wot a day!

We had a look at Old Two Legs weather thingy whatsit this morning and saw we had some dark and wet looking clouds heading our way today!

The weather forecast on the TV showed we had some nasty wet winds heading down into North Kent!

What we didn't like was the forecaster telling us that the rest of the UK was all sunshine and balmy breezes!

We knew we were in trouble when OTL got the lead out and our rain coats. He didn't even get the ferrets out and in their travelling cage but rather he put them back in their beds!

Holly and I were not too happy about going out and it took OTL a while to get us into the car!

When we got to the car park it was bucketing down and we had to stay on our lead until we got right around the corner into our 'Pooing Grounds'!

The wind was howling and the rain was horizontal and from the north!

After I had 'Done my Thing' I wanted to go back to the car but OTL said we couldn't go back until Holly had finished her 'Business'!

So, all the time I was whispering to her 'come on, get it done and we can go home' but you know how it is, when someone is looking at you, you just can't go!

In the end Holly Dog managed it and as soon as OTL had filled the poo bag we were off back to the car at a fast trot!

We got a rub down with our towels and OTL had to drive home soaking wet!

That will teach him!

Lunchtime was no better, it was still raining but not so hard and OTL spotted a gap so off we went.

We had brought Fred and Wendy along with us and even they didn't hang about when OTL put them on the sandy beach. A quick sniff, a little dig and then it was a case of 'Two Fast Flying Ferrets' all the way back to the car!

As you would imagine, OTL left the camera at home 'cos it was just too wet to even think about taking it with us!

You know we got 30mm of rain today and the strongest wind gust was 44.2 km/h!

He gets a bit boring with his weather machine, as Holly says, 'Stick your nose out the door and you can tell if it's raining!'

Tomorrow it looks like rain here as well, so we are hoping that our rain coats get dry overnight!

Sorry there are no pictures, maybe tomorrow!

Bye for now!


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


  1. Hasn't it been a yukky day. I refused to go for a walk so I've just been doing very quick dashes into the garden. Even then I wasn't very happy and my mum has had to pick me up and put me out, she reckons only people with cats have to do that! I don't care, I don't do rain, I don't do WET!
    Poor Freddy and Wendy, how cruel to make two short legged little furries go out in this wet weather, OTL I thought you loved your little furries. Well my boy managed to catch a plane and he's just landed in New York, he has to sit around for about 2 1/2 hours before he has to catch another plane, all this plane catching must be a bit tiring. My mum has been tracking his flight all day, well in between putting me out and having a short siesta with me and going up the shops on her own cos I wouldn't go and doing some jobs around the house. We're going to have some scoff now before we start tracking the next flight. Hope you get some decent muggings tonight to make up for being made to go out in this rotten rain. Have a nice warm snuggly evening and keep your paws crossed that tomorrow is a bit better. Love, sniffs and wags from little Arch and Mr Nipper xxxxxxxx

  2. Oh dear! What a miserable day you've had with all that rain. I know exactly what you feel when you had to wait for Holly to 'do her business'. Hamish is exactly the same when we go out the back for a wee. I go very quickly (and I know exactly where the dry spot is under the door canopy) but soppy Hamish runs up and down, sniffing here, there and everywhere. If mum tries to let me in, he will stop and get distracted which then takes him longer so I have to stay out shivering until he finally finishes. Mum says that the look on my face 'says it all'.
    Hamish and I had a fantastic day in the sunshine and I climbed my first mountain. Yes a real mountain. It even has a name; Blencathra. Dad took us out while mum stayed home working on reports for all the little TL in her class. It was a beautiful sunny day, although very windy on top of the mountain. It was hard work but I loved it, especially running around in the wind on the top. We could see for miles and miles and there was a great big lake called Derwent Water. Mum has put some photos on Face ache of me.
    I really hope you have a better weather tomorrow and that your coats have dried out.
    Sending lots of love, wags and sniffs from Izzy and Hamish xx xx xx xx
