We Got a Ball But No Water!

Hi Woofers!

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

It has been a bit cooler here today in North Kent. The good thing is that there is no rain!

Old Two Legs was up late this morning so we all got another half an hours snoozing time!

That meant we missed all the lads on the Sea Wall but we did get some time to play in the sand!

I was sure I remembered where I'd left the ball so Holly and I joined together to form a 'Two Woofer Digging Machine' and we showed Miss May how we can shift sand! 

Yeah, OK, but have you found the ball yet?
 Holly and I dug three holes, one where I thought the ball was and one where Holly thought it was and just to keep her quiet, one where May said it was but......................

It ain't here either, is it?
In the end we all gave up looking and Miss April, from the comfort of the ferret bag, said that were it not glued on properly we'd all more than likely loose our tails!

Going on our results, she's more than likely right!

The tide was coming in but we decided to go home 'cos OTL is still working on the bathroom floor and we are learning new technical words that OTL uses when the tile gets put down and pointing the wrong way!

Lunchtime it was Fred and Wendy's turn down on the beach.

The tide had come in and was now retreating at speed towards the horizon!

Not that it worried us 'cos we had more time for digging!

No water to swim in!
 Holly and I got going on another hole but were not very successful in our Ball Hunt.

This is getting embarrassing!
 Then we heard Freddy call out, 'Guess Wot We Found?'

There he was with the ball!

Look Wot I Got!
That was just too much, a blooming ferret digging a hole and finding our ball! Holly noticed it first and asked where the hole was that the ball came from?

Freddy said he had filled it back in 'cos it was dangerous to leave a hole that deep on the beach where anyone could fall in and never be seen again!

I started to smell a rat or better still, a ferret rat!

The ball was all clean and dry and looking too new!

Me? Sneaky Ferret? Never!
No matter how hard he tried Freddy just couldn't keep a straight face and we could see by his twitching whiskers that he was up to his tricks again!

It seems that OTL got the ball out of the ferret toy box, took the squeaker out and tucked it into the ferret bag. Wendy found it when she wriggled into the bag and sat on it. It didn't squeak, so she told Freddy who decided to play a trick on Holly and me!

Crafty little ferrets!

Now wot's all this about Grubby Butts? Getting rushed off to the vets late at night is seriously bad!

When OTL decides to take Holly to the vet we get a syringe full of stuff called  Pro Kolin+which sort of  bungs you up until you tummy settles down, mind you, OTL has to squirt the prescribed dose down our mouth by squirting it down the back of our jaw!

You know Holly actually likes the taste and licks it off OTL's finger!

I hate it, so I get the squirty treatment!


Best of luck Archie Babe and just to let you know The Missus heard a frog croaking in our pond the other morning when she got up early!

Who knows, we may see one soon!

See you all tomorrow!


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


  1. More sunshine digging, how good is that. We are getting more sunshine than I expected although we packed our bits and pieces away ready for the rain which never came. The evening is clear and we are soon off to party the night away before returning home. xxxxxx

  2. Yo maties. You've had another good day with nice weather. I'm glad that you got a ball to play with on the beach, even if Freddy and Wendy did trick you. I think little Freddy is very clever. Miss May was very good to help you and Holly chops dig and Miss April was really good to supervise the hunt. So ball up and sea down, so who nicked your sea then? I bet that OTL used the same technical term as my mum did when she banged her toe the other day. These TL's know lots of technical terms. Now is Mrs TM sure it was a frog croaking and not one of the neighbours having a morning cough? I've got some of that pro-kolin stuff but I don't like it and I spread it all round the kitchen and sometimes it makes me a bit dirty dick so I have some other stuff called malox, which is equally as nasty and spreads even further round the kitchen but instead of making me sick I spit it all over the place, no matter how far down my mum puts it, I can make a right mess with it. Since Mrs Boy has arrived and proved to be good at cuddling and letting me sit on her lap I'm not planning any late night drives for the time being. Now next door came round yesterday to see if we had any treatment they could have for their dogs, Roxy and Monty, it seems they've got FLEAS, yuk! It seems they have been sniffing the hedgehog that was in their garden sneaking along the fence next to my garden. Me and my mum had a nice surprise this morning, my mum went off to work at the crack of dawn and came back five minutes later, seems her boss felt so sorry for the way she was hobbling yesterday, he decided to give her the day off and got someone else in to do the papers today, he did try to ring yesterday but she had her phone turned off, but she was still glad to come home and snuggle up with me again. Right I'd better go do a patrol of the grounds, have a lovely evening and hope you get some decent muggings. Love, licks, wags and sniffs from little Arch and Mr Nipper xxxxxxxx
