It's been wet today, but not here!

Hi Woofers!

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

Well, today has been all sunshine here in North Kent. This morning we went down the beach with Old Two Legs and the ferrets, unfortunately Little Miss April  had one of her coughing fits which she gets as a result of her heart condition. OTL had to carry her for most of the walk giving her a cuddle. Well that's OK but it means he didn't get to take any photos!

April did her 'I want to get down' wriggle a couple of times which means OTL puts her down and she rushes off to the long grass for a wee and a poo!

Now normally she enjoys a run from the bench all the way back to the car but today she only managed half the distance before giving the 'Pick Me Up' signal to OTL, well actually she scrabbles at OTL's trouser leg and that is the sign!

Once home she and May were rampaging around the house pinching our biscuits and fighting, so April had got over her coughing fit!

Fred and Wendy had their turn at rampaging and both had fun getting their tummies tickled by OTL!

And that was after chasing The Missus around the kitchen!

After the cages were all cleaned the ferrets were tucked up and they had a wet towel hung on the cages, just to keep the temperature down to a 'Ferret Comfortable' level!

OTL was busy 'Manufacturing' so Holly and I got onto the bed with a 'Bonio Biscuit' each and started to make crumbs!

Lunchtime Freddy decided that it was too hot to go walkies and Wendy didn't even wake up, so we left them in comfort while we went off to see what Two Legs had turned up on our beach!

We couldn't go in the water, mainly because it was still on it's way up the beach and the Mud Foam was looking rather Yucky!

Another container ship.
 There were loads of Two Legs on the beach and the car park was almost full but as we walked along the Sea Wall there wasn't one of them who had a sandwich we could pinch!

Not a Crumb to be Found!
 As we got to our beach we spotted another pair of TL's resting on the beach and they had a woofer with them.

We hadn't seen one of these woofers before and Holly went straight up to her to say 'Hello'.

Holly asked what sort of woofer she was and was told that she was a Dachshund!

Holly said it sounds like a foreign name!
OK, come and meet OTL and he'll sort it out!
 We took her to see OTL and she told us that the TL's called her 'Little Sausage'!

She said hello to OTL and even got her tummy tickled when she rolled on her back!

My name is Sausage!
 She was having fun but then got called back to her TL's who were waiting for the tide to come in!

Bye Girls and Bye OTL!
 Holly and I headed off towards the car park. I kept waiting for OTL to catch up but Holly went ahead, just to make sure the way was clear!

Come on OTL!
 I heard Holly woofing but couldn't see her so I did my trick of standing up like a TL!

It didn't work and OTL had to lift me up so I could see where she was!

Sometimes it is handy to be as tall as OTL!

Now, where is that Holly Woofer?
Back home we settled down to watch the F1 Qualifying only to see that it was held up 'cos they had loads of rain!

They should have run the race over here 'cos we got loads of sunshine!

TM is out tomorrow morning good and early, she has another 'Master Class' so that means we can have all day with OTL playing games!

See you all tomorrow!


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


  1. Evening little maties down by the seaside. Love the pictures today, now I wonder if you could have a nibble on a sausage dog? Hope Miss April is feeling lots better after her cough this morning. That Freddy and Miss Wendy are quite sensible to stay home in the cool. It's been very hot here again so I've spent most of the day laying in the shade in doors and snoozing. How did OTL get on mending his camera. Shame about all that mucky stuff stopping you from having a cooling dip. Where did Holly get too? Was she tarting somewhere. Shame none of the TL's on your beach had a sarnie to share. Hope you get some decent muggings tonight and hope that Mrs TM enjoys her masterclass tomorrow. Now watch out where you leave your crumbs cos you don't want her coming home and complaining. Have a lovely evening all. Love, licks, wags and sniffs from little Arch and Mr Nipper xxxxxxxx

  2. Hello my southern friends on the hot sunny beach, we've had lovely hot sunny days too. Little Sausage looks sweet. A lady at mum's work just got a puppy dachshund called Lilly. Mum says that her legs are even shorter than Bella's! I like the photo of you being a TL. You are very good at it. Poor little April with her cough. I hope she is a bit better tomorrow. Little Bella has a tickle cough but it's because she keeps eating all carpet fluff and bits of leaf and wood from the garden. Our Mum TL is travelling down to Kent tomorrow to visit her mini grandTL. She is taking Bella too but I'm staying here to keep Hamish company. Bella is going as Dad will be at work and Bella will need her lunchtime feed and play. We will miss her as she great company but we are tired from all the playing. Bella will be staying with Rizzo, Danielle's woofer and mum & Danielle are going for some glue & glitter slapping at TM 's masterclass. I am sending down a little surprise for you so please remind my MumTL to give it to you. Bye for now my Daisy. Love, wags, woofs and licks from Izzy xxxxxxxx

  3. More sunshine but it did cloud up, Margaret rang to see if we wanted to go into Maidstone and get the boat to the Malta Inn but we were so hot and tired after walking around the Big Cat Sanctuary yesterday on Michael's birthday that we went to sleep in the arm chairs instead. Waste of a day but there you go. Glad Miss April bucked up when she got home, it must be very difficult with her heart problem but OTL is so wonderful to you all, it is lovely to see him being like the Pied Piper. The German dachshund is a very curious dog, lots of traits of the ferret with a long thin body and short legs. The Grand Prix session was rather wet but it seemed to dry up quickly, we will be watching tomorrow, TM will have to watch a recording, I promise I won't tell her the result. Fancy her planning a Master Class on a Grand Prix day. I hope you cleared up the Bonio crumbs from the bed or are you going to pretend that OTL had shortbread in bed, TM is really clever she will know the difference between Bonio and Shortbread! Have a lovely Sunday rest, look after OTL, I will be back tomorrow to see what happened. xxxxxx
