Trev's gotta Sister!

Hi Woofers!

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

You know it is getting very noticeable that the days are getting shorter. It is dark when we get up and the sunrise is still visible when we get down to the beach!

Sunrise is getting more colourful now!
Did you know the tomorrow is the September equinox here in North Kent? That means the day light and the night time are exactly the same! After that it is all down hill until the Spring!

Miss May enjoyed her run on the beach chasing the rubber ball!

I let her get the ball a couple of times but in the end my long legs proved to be faster than her short ones!

Back home we were having a look around the garden, checking up on the sniffs and looking for anything new.

Holly noticed it first, a small nose and a couple of small eyes poking out from under a Lilly Pad.

Another Frog!

It certainly wasn't Trevor 'cos he is a bit bigger and darker skin colour.

So now we have two frogs, OTL says that if they were from the frog spawn then they would be brother and sister but if one was from the live for we introduce then we could be looking at some baby frogs next year!

Claws crossed!

Down on the beach at lunchtime, Old Two Legs had brought my solid rubber ball so Holly and I had great fun charging up and down the beach with the ball.

I started to dig a hole in which to put the ball and the further I got down into the sand the more the sides would fall into the hole covering the ball!

OK, where is is now?
After a while Holly and I needed a breather and that gave Fred and Wendy a chance to dive in and start throwing sand about.

Will you get off my shoulders!
They had a good rummage around and although there was traces of Ball Sniff, there was no sign of it!

We can sniff it but can't find it!
After ferreting around looking for the ball the ferrets gave up and allowed Holly and me back into the hole!

Well you put it in here!
 In the end we had to give up and admit the ball was gone!

Back in the car the ferrets were straight into the water bowl! They made such a noise slurping the water down!

Do you think we could have a swim in here?
Back home the ferrets were absolutely whacked! They went back into the cage, had a nibble and slurp and headed for their beds!

I don't expect that we will hear from them until tomorrow morning!

We are now off to see what OTL has lined up for dinner and more important, can we have a bit!

See you tomorrow!


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


  1. Evening little maties down by the seaside with frogs in their pond. Sounds like you've all had a good day. Glad you've found another frog in your garden, perhaps they'll get out and hop round the garden then you can play hop and whizz with them like wot I do. You have to watch out though cos they get a bit lazy and you have to nudge them with your nose or pat them gently with your paw to get them to hop again. Sorry to hear that your ball disappeared into that big hole, wot a shame Miss Wendy and Freddy couldn't find it for you. Maybe they'll find it tomorrow if they get the chance to have a dig. I don't like this getting up in the dark, seems very odd to me, dark means sleep time to me. That was very kind of you to let Miss May get the ball sometimes this morning. Love the pictures today. Have a good evening and I'm sure OTL will share his dinner with you. Love, licks, wags and sniffs from little Arch and Mr Nipper xxxxxx

  2. Tomorrow is that Autumn Thingy half way between summer and winter so it will carry on getting dark early and you will get to see sunrise and sunset on the beach in the same day as long as the weather is bright. Sorry about the ball, there must be a way of putting a lead on it like the ferrets, you don't mislay them. Exciting news about the frogs, like the heron at Capstone Park, there was only one and then it got younger and smaller and then two were seen at the same time. Could there be more frogs I wonder planning to gang up on you and Holly when you do your night patrol, better watch out. Try and find that ball, a clue is, it is under the sand! xxxxx
