My Ball has Gone!

Hello Woofers!

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

It has been another hot day down here in North Kent!Not as hot as yesterday but still it is one of those days when a shady spot in the garden is the best place for a woofer to be!

We started off with our morning stroll on the beach and this morning May and April came with us. May was full of beans 'cos she hasn't been out for a day or so and she had a bit of energy to burn off!

...................are we there yet?
 Little April decided to stay in the ferret bag 'cos there was no way she would be able to keep up with May!

I took a look at the sea and decided it was just too rough for any swimming today, a paddle maybe but no swimming!

I'd rather dig some holes today!
 May said she was up for a hole dig and we both started to throw some sand about!

.......then I just pat it down around the sides!
 As we headed back to the car May and I discussed the fine points of digging holes and she was saying that she could dig a tunnel if the ground was firm enough which is something I hadn't tried before.

The secret is to use your hips to pat the sides as you go!
 Back home the ferrets had a good rampage around the house while Old Two Legs did his 'Poo Shovelling' duties! When he had finished he was allowed to have a game with Wendy and Freddy.

They both enjoy having OTL turn them on their backs and tickle their tummies! Freddy always laughs his tail off and grabs OTL's finger and gives it a cheeky nibble!

Lunchtime it wasn't so hot so OTL decided that Fred and Wendy could go with Holly and me to the beach.

I was telling them about May and our hole digging fun. The tide was right out so I couldn't play 'Chase The Ball' in the water but OTL got the ball out and tossed it down the beach.

Freddy chased after it and I let him get to it first 'cos he doesn't often get to play chase on the beach!

I'll Get It, I'll Get It!
Then he ran back up the beach and gave it to OTL to throw again!

OK, back to OTL!
 This time OTL rolled it right the way down to the sea weed and rocks and Freddy raced after it!

I remember when he first came to live with us and when OTL took him out walking he just stood still, amazed at all the green and open spaces!

Now look at him!

I got it! I got it!
Finally I got to it and with Holly's help we dug a deep hole and hid it down the bottom!

We told Freddy that he could find it tomorrow when he comes back on the next walk!

OK, just press the sand down on top of it!!
When we got back to the car we all had a drink and Freddy reminded me that it was my ball I'd buried and not one of his!

I hadn't realised that!

My ball is gone!

You know the first thing I'll be doing tomorrow when I get onto the beach!

See you all tomorrow!


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


  1. Yo little maties. Well wot a good day you've all had. Loved all the pictures. Hope Miss April enjoyed her ride in the bag. Miss May is very good at digging, how nice of her to help you. Oh dear, I hope you're ball is still there tomorrow and that so other woofer doesn't dig it up, perhaps Freddy will help you find it again. He's very good at playing chase the ball. Did Wendy and Holly chops do some digging while you and Freddy were chasing the ball. Sorry to hear that you didn't get your dip but that sea did look very rough and I'm pleased you didn't chance going for a dip in it. Me and my mum have been very busy today putting the finishing touches of everything ready for my boys Mrs to arrive tomorrow. My mum was rushing about so much that she's managed to hurt both her back paws. First she was coming out of the supermarket with a trolley load of goodies and banged her middle toe on the trolley, it didn't half bleed lots but she didn't know until she got home just how much. Then after she cut my boys hair and she hovered it up, she was putting the hover away and didn't realise she hadn't stood it up properly and it came down on the middle toe of her other paw. She's hobbling along and if she gets down on the floor she has to get my boy to help her up cos she has to be a bit careful with her paws. My mum said some very naughty words, she's not sure how she's going to get her shoes on tomorrow morning for work. It's been very hot here again today and with all the work we've done we're going to have a good early night, so I better be off and do my patrol. Take care all and have a lovely evening. Ooooohhh did you sing a happy anniversary song to Mrs Sue and Mr Mike? Love, licks, wags and sniffs from little Arch and Mr Nipper xxxxxxxx

  2. Just doing some catch up and letting you know that I am here, lovely sunshine and the bank holiday too. xxxxxx
